It's been a long time since I've done any SRE, but I love it! Love the sound of the pop as the needle punches the silk through the fabric, the smooth texture of the silk, the dimensional effect of the stitches. In my organizing efforts, I found this bit of SRE on a blouse I made for my middle daughter, who was the candlelighter at my oldest daughter's wedding in 2001. Not wanting to keep the blouse, I snipped out the embroidery and put it in this spare hoop so I can enjoy it and remember those busy preparation days before the wedding!
I have a nice little stash of ribbon, much of it leftover from the wedding, which I should use one of these days. :)
In catching a bit of stitching time, I've continued with Quaker Inspiration and am now a little over half way around the frame!
Not long now to the finish.
