Another purchase from yesterday's miniatures fair. I bought a cushion from this maker last year, and admired her samplers, so here is this year's investment. The gauze on which she stitches these is 40 count (standard aida cloth is 14 or 16 count and while linen is very often 28 or 30 count, it's stitched over two threads). Incredibly fine (and definitely requiring a magnifying glass). Just wonderful work.
Sometimes a photo a day, to make me look more closely and see what is around me to be considered and captured, using the immediacy of digital photography. And possibly the odd rant, from time to time. Things made, found, discovered. A cornucopia. On the One Vivid Leaf blog, crochet!
