    sadly i think it’s just a lost art, one born before computers and tv distracted the teachings!

    One of my most favourite things to search for – antique embroideries, and that is such a gorgeous example.

    Yes…that blog has been a favorite for a while now! How can there be so much beauty packed into our world! It amazes me — and with the web, it is so awesome to be able to enjoy things, visually, that we might otherwise never have even known existed. Just amazing.

    BTW, your blog is a big party of all that beauty! :)
