Some example of shadow work embroidery in my stash.
its important to show the front and back...love the little 'Vs' on the border of this organdy cloth (unfortunately rather stained with some color bleed).
this delicate hankie is a fine cotton lawn
you have to use a transparent or semi transparent fabric
does any one do this kind of fine work anymore? I know there are some fantastic embroiderers out there in blogland.
don't you love the sweet French knots...
Still trying to get the hang of this Craftcult widget. Its like buying a pig in a poke.
notice my pretty scarf, bottom right.
