Embroidery home and away

Although I enjoyed my visit to the V&A I was disappointed how little embroidery or lave was on display.
I spotted this panel in the iron works area and decided at some point it would look well done in blackwork. A little project for the future since I have two other pieces in progress inspired by stonework at Mountstewart. If only there were more hours in the day! It’s an 1862 radiator panel designed by Alfred Stevens (1817-1875) and made by Henry Hoole and company of Sheffield.






The embroidery on these costumes was worth seeing. I love to see historical items as these.




Beautiful quilt



Some theatrical costumes















Time to focus on my own embroidery although there has been little due to injuring my right thumb presumably at work
