I received the latest posting from Mary Corbet's Needle 'n Thread about the embroidered portraits of artist Cayce Zavaglia. The portraits are truly fantastic and I know from experience a lot of work was involved! In a previous post, I displayed my stitched portrait of Theodora, which was stitched using one strand of silk thread on a silk background.
The following sites also have some interesting embroidery that I thought you might like to see.
