Purple Rose Heart

I love doing these spider web rose motifs!!! Others must like them to I have several comments on my flickr site about them.

This one the silk ribbon is just one color but I like to use two ribbons together in my needle while doing them. I'll use a 7mm ribbon along with a 4mm ribbon of a different color so the rose has a two tone look to it. Belinda from www.bearembroideryden.blogspot.com shared this tip and I have been using it on most of my roses.

The roses at the top of the bottom seam treatment are Fargo roses...now that I can make them right I use them often too.
