To Do: Ribbon Embroidery

Remember this lovely project from Martha a few years back? I've had the magazine pages ripped out for the longest time but never tried it. Did you?

This might be the right project to combine my spring fever and need for baby and wedding gifts. Could I justify some very expensive silk ribbon?

I was thinking of doing something similar to that on my "second dress" like this awesome JCrew dress:

but more twirly for dancing :) And probably more ferns and the like. We'll see.
