My very first silk ribbon embroidery project way way back

While I am still working on my Olla or water jar, I thought of having a little fun and showing you my very first silk ribbon embroidery project that I did way way way back.
First funny thing is that this is an "M" and there is no "M" in either my husband or my own name, so why did I end up choosing to make an "M" instead of a "P" or an "R"? Seems like a reasonable question, right? Well the woman who showed us how to do silk ribbon embroidery told me that I would learn more if I did an "M" than doing a "P". So, guess what? I started thinking how I could justify to myself doing an "M" and I came up with a few ideas like "M" for Mrs or "M" for Marie which all catholic born little girl automatically gets when they are baptised, so with these two "M"s I managed to justify to myself that it was perfectly allright to have a towel with an "M" initial. Each time I look at that towel, a smile creeps in.
I thought that my "M" looked pretty good at the time. Now, I am not so sure, but it does hold funny memories and that makes it special :-)
Now, back to Terra Rosa. Hope to be able to post a photograph of the water jar sometimes tomorrow.

I think your M looks wonderful. Congrats on your first silk ribbon piece.

very pretty and of course I think of an M for Matthew but he is the last person on earth that you could call feminine ROFL

thinking about it you could have made a series for the days of the week and M would have been perfect for Mondays or perhaps the months and then we have got M for March

Very nice! If anybody asks, it could also be for Mom, Me, Mine! LOL

i think that's great for the first time. It looks like a M that was a good start. I like What Terry said Monday is a good one;)

Very pretty! Thanks for sharing your memory.

Now if you do an A, I'd be happy to take them both off your hands!

Thanks for all your comments. Some ideas are pretty good except for my friend Anne who just wants to take my towel away from me (boohoo)
