That is just beautiful. Since my new interest in sewing I recently made a table runner. Thinking it look rather plain after it was done I decided to embroider the ends. I haven't done embroidery since I was about eight years old and it shows. lol
So much work goes into those, hours and hours. I used to do embroidery work and still have an unfinished tablecloth my grandmother started that I keep looking at and thinking "one day" But probably now if I washed it after all these years it might fall apart.
I still will do a bit of wool embroidery for a pattern on a sweater edge.
Wow! My favorite was the sunflowers picture. What great work. I used to love to embroider (nothing that beautiful, though) and do crewel work. I just don't have the patience (or the eyesight) any more.
Thanks Lara. I made that for my mom almost 40 years ago.
I thought I’d posted about the intricate embroidery that Seabreeze showed .
It’s incredibly beautiful and is a lot harder to do than the work I did. These ones are done with finer thread and it takes forever. My favourite is the sunflowers but I have to agree that the first one looks like a Monet.
I hope to be able to do this when I get older. I’ll need to use my large magnifying glass but it’s enjoyable work.
