Use Ribbon at Divas by Design

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Thank you for all your kind words about my back yesterday - you are all so lovely.
This evening my DH and I are going to try a Pilates class - I have been wanting to do Pilates for such a long time - I've heard that it should help with my back problems - if done right - so I'm looking forward to it. It will also be great to do something together :o)

So a super quick post as my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver is here to play this morning and there are some Mr Tumble jigsaws that need to be put together with my help :o)

Today we have a new challenge over at

Here's what I did:

This is such a fabulous use of ribbon Debs. Very striking.
Hope your back keeps continuing to improve. I have had my fair share of back pain (prior to an op) so I can understand how you feel.
