a textile treasure

By spotogspindel | April 2, 2015


I am at the start of a big embroidery-project, including several exhibitions. Imagine my joy when I found this lovely, old embroidered prayer at my local charity-shop! There is no written information on the back, but there is some embroidered on: March 23, 1901 G.B. It´s probably been made by a young girl, as an exercise-piece when she was first learning to embroider. This is so, so cool!

    So fun! Looking forward to seeing what you’re exhibiting! Did you see ‘Nålens øye’ while it was in Bergen? If not, it is on exhibition in Oslo for a while – I thought it was quite good! It also has some pieces like + related to these practice peices that was common back in the very old days. So cool to see these pieces!
