and as most of you know, my passion is embroidery with a vintage look. These past few weeks I have been researching petit point...........a form of needlepoint.........just worked on a smaller weave of canvas. Berlin work charts that depict clusters of roses , violets and forget me nots, have always captured my attention. I could write a post that would go on forever about Berlin work, as well as Nowotny charts out of Vienna...............
I am in awe of the beautiful artwork and craftsmanship that went into making these beautiful charts.I would love a petit point purse like this...........even if I am wearing jeans! What do you think??
The designers were quite talented. So now, after my research and hunting, I now have my threads and linens ready...............
and I just got this wonderful book, full of pictures, charts, patterns and instructions. The charts above came from this edition. I am in the middle, but almost finished with a previous embroidery project............and I am about to dive into the world of petit point. I hope I will have something stitched soon to show to you. If you are interested in this wonderful form of needlework, the book can be found on Amazon and if you click onto this link
http://www.gittas.com/FreeStuff/Instructions/Petit_Point.htm, you can find instructions to do petit point.
Are you already familiar with this kind of work? Or do you do needlepoint?
I would love to hear!
