some of my most treasured finds are old embroideries....you too love them I can see ,each stitch is considered like a drawing or collage .....and the places are like from the imagination .
Thank you for the link elisabeth, looks like a good one.

Gosh that's stunning, esp the closeup. I would almost love it more if it was cropped like that. Shows what an artform needlework can be.

Very cool. Patience indeed.

That would certainly take a lot of patience, but so rewarding in the end with the beauty of it all. Enjoy your find :)

my mother has several large embroidery pictures she made during her younger years > one in particular is especially amazing: sunflowers on their stalks measuring five feet long!
thank you for sharing your little corner of the world and your interesting finds!

Åh vad glad jag är att du tagit hand om detta fina lilla verk. Det gör lite ont i mitt hjärta varje gång jag ser tålmodigt arbetade broderier, spetsar och annat handarbete ligga i fyndlådor på loppisar där allt kostar ett par kronor. Pay some respect liksom!
