Manolo says, our friend Twistie is discussing the lovely art of ribbon embroidery…
…the art of taking lengths of ribbon and sewing them decoratively onto a background. I love ribbon embroidery.
It is quite attractive and historically important.
Manolo loves the shoes!
I am really enjoying Crafty Manolo (which I will also post there).
When the Twistie approached the Manolo with the idea for the crafts blog, the Manolo was all, “you are great writer, dear Twistie, but the crafting blogs, they are all about the bedazzling of sweatshirts and the by-the-numbers scrapbookery. Things about which the Manolo has no interest.”
“No, Manolo,” said the Twistie, patiently, “I want to blog about real crafts that take effort and yield beautiful results, like tatting and embroidery and high-end quilting.”
To which the Manolo replied, “Okay, let us give it the try.”
And thus far, the results have been beyond the Manolo’s wildest imagination great. Twistie is producing the excellent crafts blog, one of the best on the interwebs.
