A great embroidery find









Last Sunday I found this at a fleamarket, the patterns are so fascinating. So oldfashioned yet so modern, don't think I will ever get tired of looking at it.

  2. A great find indeed. I love the combination of geometric with florals. Wonder who did that. Fleamarkets, what a bliss!

  5. Wow, I have so many questions about it that only the original owner could answer! Was it a sampler for a young girl (or an older woman) to practice different stitches? Was it displayed in a room in a certain way so that the sunlight faded the top half of the sampler but left the bottom half with brighter colors? It's beautiful!

  6. Oh wow!!!! The patterns at the bottom especially intrigue me, as a few of them mimic weave patterns! These are so intricate, I can't imagine how much time it took the creator to finish them all!

  14. I envy you! I've been wanting to find a great embroidered piece for ages, but our thrift stores aren't as impressive as I want them to be. This is stunning!

  15. I've just run through a list of all fleamarkets in my head, trying to figure out where you found it. My guess would be Arkonaplatz (but maybe that's the obvious one)? My second would be the fleamarket at John-F-Kennedy-Platz in front of the Rathaus Schöneberg!
