I've started dragging un-framed and unfinished things out of the cupboard. Kim from l'uccello's gave me this piece of silk ribbon (14 cm wide) and I bought the little vintage Mother of Pearl buttons and some others which didn't suit but will be a lovely addition to the button stash. They are mixed with Baroque Pearls.
If you go here and scroll down, you'll find the pattern I made and various progress shots and explanations.
Now I have to find a suitable frame, which, so far, is not an easy thing. It wants to be a bit rich and gold... or tarnished silver. Old would be good!
