Detail 4 of 100 details in 200 days

Well, we are moving right along with our 100 details. It's so interesting to see the other variations due to beads, lace and space, that some of the participants are doing. This one is 2mm lilac silk ribbon double herringboned onto 2 strips side by side of 7mm burgundy silk ribbon. There is a crystal bead (from a necklace I was given in the '60s as a leaving present from my co-workers in England) in every other space, and seed beads in the rest. The original design showed some weaving in and out, but I didn't have the heart to do that after I had worked so hard to keep the silk ribbon flat!
