I have done some stitching yesterday

Last week I ordered this book on (free shipping to Belgium!)  :)

here is the link
Such an inspiring book, I couldn't wait to make some stitches.
I often take my I pod with me when walking the dog, or riding on my bike, to listen to audiobooks.
and I made a pouch to handg round my neck, to hold my I pod, while listening.
Here it is,
I know it's a little bit over the top, overworked, but I see it as a stitching practice project. Could not resist adding a crocheted border, I loved to try that one out, (making a crocheted border on fabric)
I had collected some pretty images about that on my pinterest

Can't wait to watch some flowers and make some embroidery designs myself, here in my garden, endless possibilities.

I wanted to try out some embroidery with silk ribbon, but the problem (here in Belgium) is, that I never can find what I need(no embroidery silk ribbon to find in this little country) so I used synthetic ribbon, and that is not nearly as pretty, if anyone can recommend me a good internet supplier in Europe? please do, thank you.
