Roses are red.....

Look at what's just arrived in the shop.....these gorgeous scrummy sheer roses ribbon from May Arts. We have it in red, pink and white. Perfect finish to any project, either in a strip or perhaps just a single rose?

We also have May Arts Silky Crush ribbon wired in several colours. This ribbon makes great bows and as its wired, it really helps those of us who find making pretty bows fiddly.

I just love the colours of this satin pleat ribbon - teal. We also have it in pale pink and ivory.

I am anxiously waiting for our next order of seam binding. It is so easy to get lost with the number of colours it comes in. There are around a dozen new colours winging their way over. I will post an update as soon as they arrive.

Keep smiling :)
