Just checking in between my holiday in Marrakesh and my Japanese embroidery class (sometimes life is sweet!).
I've had a busy few days catching up at work and home so forgive me a brief blog.
Does anyone recognise these stitches found on a teapot cover/holder.
The edging appears to be a form of button hole. I think it is done as a single stitch rather than a whipped buttonhole.
The knots appear to to be made independently and then stitched to the pot holder. These same knots are used as buttons on the sleeves and necklines of kaftans.
This sampler was on display in one of the Palaces (I am amazed that photography was permitted). This was the best photo that I could manage because of the reflection in the glass.
Ok, so I am off to Bournemouth for a week of stitching with like minded ladies, can you think of a better thing to be doing in early March?
