Velvet and Ribbon



Someone had sent me some ribbon yarn and I couldn't find it locally so I checked ebay and found it had been discontinued by the manufacturer but could be found on ebay so I bought a couple of balls...if I was going to use it for anything other than embellishment, I would have bought more, but using it as I will be, two balls will probably last me forever...
I also started a small applique...a velvet cat on some linen or linen-like fabric I bought as remnants...I think the cat will be fun once I get her lines and eyes in.

Ooooh! I like your kitty. She looks decadent. That ribbon is pretty nice as well. I can see where you could use that alot.

I think this cat will look great - lovely fabric. and those balls of yarn last forever...as long as you dont knit with them - i buy them when i see them on sale.

Why does ribbon delight me so?? It is such a temptation to me in any form!

Love the cat!

She's coming along rather slowly due to our warm and sunny weather which doesn't make it easy to stay inside.

I like your velvet cat...I bet she would love to play with the beautiful ribbon yarns that you bought on ebay! We had weather close to 70 degrees in Boulder today too...Camilla

Oh no! They stopped making the ribbon yarn?!?! I have like 6 skeins left I'll have to cherish if I'm unable to get more. Darn!
