|Pink Gold Purple Stripe|
This vintage embroidery piece was made by someone rather skilled or at least patient. The stitch is a counted thread technique where the stitches are worked to a consistent size by counting the threads of the woven back fabric. The needle is passed between the threads of the fabric without splitting them. I haven’t been able to find the name of this exact stitch, one might call it a modified wave stitch. It creates a fantastic pattern. I love the different scales: the over all effect from afar could be a printed stripe but when looking close up you see the detailed stitch work.
