Helen's book is a good example of the above. Several of her projects are roses in vases and indeed they are stunning. The combinations of color leap out at me. I am especially a pushover for pink and green combinations and the folded cabochon rose technique, but the one that was most eyecatching was her "Victorian era color scheme" on page 197. Beautiful indeed!
As there are many incredible techniques utilizing ribbons, I must also note that this book is not for the ribbon "embroiderer" per se as Helen's flowers are not formed by embroidery but almost 3 dimensionally raised and "planted" on the surface. As a ribbon afficionado though, I like to combine different techniques in my projects.
This book also has good pictorial instruction and directions along with needed supplies so I would altogether recommend this book highly.
The author does encourage us to choose high quality ribbons for your projects, and this I find to be the best advice in my experience so far. Silk ribbons are suggested for many of the flowers. Silks are pricey so shop around for the best price and ask for samples when available. The only negative about this book is the lack of resource suggestions other than the authors own webstore. There are many trim and ribbon stores on the internet that can be located with your favorite search engine. Check the yellow pages to see if you have a trim and fabric store in your own neighborhood as well. Enjoy!
