Embroidery Pictures

Yesterday we visited Rob's aunt Dorothy and uncle Bob in Nottingham and found a treasure trove of artefacts collected from their round the world travels and Dorothy's embroidery.

This is a snap of the first one I noticed, hung in the downstairs loo. It is the size of a postcard, carefully stitched landscape of a flower meadow. This is most certainly my favourite, but there were lots of beautiful designs, hung on walls, covering cushions and boxes.

I have always liked embroidery, but I do not have the patience nor the steady hand required to produce my own work. I'll be on the look out for other stitched delights.
