Nothing like a little hand embroidery to start the day…

Just saw this on Threads Magazine online — a pair of gorgeously embroidered sleeves. (You can read the article here: Threads Magazine online)

Kenneth King, who owns them, very nicely took lots of gorgeous, close-up shots (which is really where the ‘wow’ factor comes in).

The article explains the different kinds of stitching used in most of the motifs; here, tambour stitching makes up the long, shiny stitches and bullion stitch was used for the centers of the flowers.

And isn’t all that couching just gorgeous? Wow. And that’s just the edge of the sleeve.  Sigh…
