Exquisite Embroidery Love

Just wanted to share this exquisite piece of embroidery with you. It is a 'tufted' stitch almost like a rug -making stitch, it is very fine and gives a more dimensional look than other needlework. Almost sure it is called a Ghiordes knot, but I could be mistaken.

 I am in the middle of going through boxes of things I have collected over the years and listing items in my Ebay store. Things I will never use, or have never used and this embroidery is one of them, sadly to say.  The list goes on....





How neat is the back of this embroidery?



Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to enter my giveaway here !

Goodness, I would be going, to tell the difference between the front and back if you hadn't mentioned it. It's very sweet.

Cheers,

Beautiful! I must say that I'm a fan now of embroidery, that piece was lovely. The back is as good as the front stitch. The textures are excellent.
