Cosmos In Silk Ribbon Embroidery By Carol Daisy of Embroideries From Daisy's Garden

I LOVE just about any kind of silk ribbon embroidery flower and was was thrilled to see that Carol Daisy had a wonderful tutorial on her Silk Ribbon Embroidery blog showing you how to make cosmos in silk ribbon embroidery.  Enjoy making your flowers.

Here's what Carol had to say about her tutorial: Cosmos Flowers are stitched using Dinky Dyes Argyle 7 mm. Silk Ribbon  - I must apologise for the delay in getting this tutorial online. My left index finger had a slight mishap with a sharp knive, thus removing a piece of skin. Needless to say you probably all have tried to work with a sore finger and bandaid, but for me does not give the best results.

Sunflowers and Cosmos are two flowers which come to mind for this effect. When you are replicating a flower with a raised centre, in the case of Cosmos, Dahlias, Daisies etc. the pistils in the centre of the flower are quite prominent.

Carol's Bio: My life is at the stage that I can indulge in my interests of Embroidery and Crafts. Ribbons,beads,threads, laces and trims all have a special place here in my studio. 

My childhood was spent on the family dairy farm in Toowoomba, Queensland. When I was about 12 years old, my Grandmother (nicknamed Daisy – hence the name Daisy’s Garden) introduced me to the joys of needlework. I am so thankful to her for giving me a skill that I could enjoy and build upon for life. After the chores were done, whenever I had some spare time, I would sit quietly on the front porch and stitch away. I remember these times so fondly. When I retired, and finally had some time to myself, I had the desire to do embroidery again. I didn’t get far with the fancy work tablecloth however, once I discovered Silk Ribbon Embroidery, I became addicted!
