A vintage piece .......

A beautiful motif in the mochi embroidery  or Tambour embroidery  ( done with a chain stitch using a hook ) technique from my collection . It was made more than seventy years ago by my husband`s grandmother .

metal thread embroidery .
                            Love the shading and the neatness of stitches .

She was an amazing needlewoman and wish I could  have learned from her . Each of the pieces she made are truly beautiful . Her metal thread embroideries are the one`s I covet the most ,  and am really lucky that my mother-in-law preserved some of them and handed them down to me. 

Till next time....

 artfully yours ,



  1. how good to have something that was made so long ago, wonder if our grandchildren will treasure our makes in years to come, unfortunately do not think mine will, she is not interested in stitchery

  2. That is a wonderful treasure and testament of how talented she was. My grandmother was an amazing machine embroidery artist - all done on a single stitch treadle machine! Such inspirations!

  3. This is amazingly beautiful. Thank you for my well wishes

    Wishing you a happy weekend

  4. Priceless family heirlooms!

  5. Gorgeious and simply amazing. You are so lucky to have that kind of treasure!!!!
