Allium Flora journal cover design

coton a broder on appliquéd felt discs, with some stencilled designs in acrylic, on coarsely woven Indian cotton.


Star stitch, French knots, some backstitching, cretan and something like plaited herringbone, only crappier.

If this looks familiar, it's because I learned the Allium design from Janet Haigh's book, The Embroiderer's Floral.


Handbound book no. 876
