Some times a little piece of work turns up in the display cases at the Guild that just takes your breath away. There was a little hand pened note with this one.
This little bag, stitched over 100 years ago, loved and used constantly , and still used, is beautiful.
It took me a moment or two before I realised that the background was all bullion knots as well.
I'm not sure if the thread is silk or rayon but the shading in the flowers, espcially the large roses, is a lesson in how to use colour.
