  The sweetest little birds in ribbon embroidery...   Good morning everybody… are you ready for the week? To brighten up your day, I thought you would like to see the cutest birds by Svetlana Gerasimova (Светлана Герасимова) who lives in Pskov, Russia — a city south-southwest of St. Petersburg, on the Velikaya River.   Click on the images to enlarge.     Can you see how she has used ribbon instead of thread to embroider the little bird? I think this is so clever and it’s unique :))     Svetlana wrote to me: “Good day to you! My name is Svetlana Gerasimova; I live in Russia in Pskov. I have been embroidering with ribbons since March last year and your work, embroidered on the prints, made a big impression on me! During my second maternity leave, when Synule was slightly less than a year old, I had the opportunity to create, and now I'm teaching those who want to learn this technique. What I love is that women, like me, derive great enjoyment from this art.”    Close-up detail…click on the image to enlarge         Don’t you love her flowers?         I love these little brown birds! Svetlana embroidered them with ribbon too.    Click on the images to enlarge     Close-up detail:       ... and don't you love this little one and her flowers too?         Svetlana made a gorgeous Tiger with ribbon embroidery... I will share it with you in the weeks to come.    Subscribe and receive e-mail updates as soon as I post a new blog:     You are also welcome to join me (and many other talented embroiderers) on Facebook:    Stay in touch with the latest on Twitter:  ….and Pinterest:   Thank you so much for sharing your talent with all of us, Svetlana Enjoy your Monday everyone ◕‿◕ Love Di
