While I was doing research for my post a few days ago about the incredible workmanship required to make ballet tutus, I came across so many images of gorgeous needlework that were not on ballet costumes.
But I thought they were amazing - and should be shared. I'm not going to write anything about them ... just post them and let you see them and be as awed and amazed at the skill, talent, vison - and time! - involved in the art of fancy needlework!
Some of the images are contemporary - some are vintage - all are exquisite. Enjoy!
Special thanks to Alterations, unlimited on Facebook, where many of these images were found.
Hope you've been inspired, now
... go make something beautiful!
