 Little Flowers in silk and organza ribbon

 

Would love to hear what you think of the cover!

 

I so enjoyed writing this book and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Marina Zherdeva, such a talented artist. You will see what she has come up with when you open Little Flowers in silk and organza ribbon!

 

Little Flowers should be on the shelves towards the end March/beginning April 2014.

 

I will tell you more about the contents closer to the time!

I asked Nigar to tell me a little about herself… and she wrote:

 

“To talk about myself is not easy as ribbon embroidery :) I love nature, flowers, birds, butterflies, which is good, which is nice, I love all what beautiful is, this is me!”

Nigar spent her childhood in Akyazı - Sakarya – TÜRKİYE and she now lives in Yeşilyayla köyü - Düzce TÜRKİYE. She lived in the Netherlands for 22 years.

 

She finds her inspiration from Nature itself.

 

Nigar has been doing embroidery since childhood but 7 - 8 years ago she started with ribbon embroidery. She used to teach in the Netherlands for 15 years but stopped teaching 5 years ago and now concentrates on making individual items for her customers.
