Silk Ribbons

The silk ribbons are here,
the silk ribbons are here!!!
Patricia Winter of Pat Winter Gatherings blog posted that she was getting ready to hand dye silk ribbons. You can catch that posting at this link http://gatherings100.blogspot.com/2009/09/catching-upso-much-to-share.html.
I use silk ribbons in my jewelry and after seeing the lovely, multi color strands on her blog posting I had to order immediately. So many glorious colors to choose from it was hard choosing but I had to narrow my choices to colors that I use most often with my beadwork. If I were "queen" I would have a strand of every color she offers. LOL.
I ordered black, lilac, aqua, and turquoise and Pat even included some free ribbons as well. I love a freebie or "blog swag" ... thank you Pat.

How luscious are these colors? I can't wait to utilize them in my beadwork and jewelry.
Pat, you dye beautiful ribbons and I will be ordering again soon.

If you would like to order some of her fabulous ribbons, contact Pat at the information listed above. Have a great day, everyone. Sea Witch

The rainbow of ribbons...makes me smile! In my mothers things I found some small packs of hand dyed silk ribbons, and have used them, sparingly, in crafts & scrapbook pages I have done. They're so beautiful, I don't want to use them all up...Moms came from a woman in Moline, IL, and the colors make me smile & think of my mother, every time I use them. silly sentimental ol' fool I seem to be turnin' into...:o} Happy Wednesday *elaine*
