I decided to create some simple yet elegant designs based on an idea that my dear friend, Pamela Cox, suggested. I am sure you will be delighted with these designs which are suitable for delicate heirloom embroidery. I based the flowers on Forget me knots and Scarlet pimpernels, although I didn't keep with their true colours. Use the buttonholes to create ribbon inserts! Look at the larger designs to see some of the possible combinations you can create with the designs in your software! Try eliminating some of the colours as I have done in the image on the right. I added tiny pearls to this applique of almond and ivory silk!
