My Irish doily

I didn't have any intention to make a doily. I wanted to discover how to make a background for my next Irish blouse so I collected some of my old Irish motifs, arranged them, and make this background .
You can see  that I didn't  make anything special in this arrangement because I just want to learn. After I  made this background I have made this Irish edge.
I have learned , and discovered many things about background specially about its direction ,  how I can work backward, and hold the hook horizontally . For me it is better to tack the motifs using sewing back stitch than pin them down. 

Close look at some parts, and edge

Silk Ribbon embroidery (Pillow case)

Pillow case .
This time I have made this embroidery as a pillow case. I didn't sew it yet, but you will get a picture of it when I finish it as a pillow case. ( it is about 50*48 cm)

Close look at stitches.
I have made the leaves using a straight stitch instead of ribbon stitch. Also I have made those little flowers using a french knot, and also the feather stitch to make their stem
The roses,
Roses here are  three rounds; the first one is folded center, the second is loop stitch, and third is ribbon stitch. one of them is not folded center, but french knots center which is white with yellow-green center.
The bud ,
I have used two colors to make this closed bud, and also ribbon stitch to make the leaves of the bud. Also use the stem embroidery stitch to make the stem of the bud.
