14th century inspired Klosterstich rose embroidery finished :)

2015-03 - Racaire - 14th century Klosterstich rose embroidery - medieval embroidery

And finally I found the time to finish the 14th century inspired Klosterstich rose embroidery which I started last year.

Yes, I admit it, I neglected this small project a little and worked on several other more urgent projects in the meantime. But after my husbands heart attack last week, I really needed a nice embroidery project to ease my mind.

I think everyone of us has something special that can provide a certain peace of mind. In some cases it is chocolate, some prefer to snack on nuts or have a nice glass of beer or wine, others start cleaning their home,… and well, I prefer to work at my embroidery projects. Well, not that I would reject chocolate or a good glass of wine or beer, but embroidery is definitely my pacifier.

While I was working at our 12th century wedding clothing, this small 14th century Klosterstich rose embroidery was very patently waiting in one of my boxes. It was nearly finished – all the Klosterstich embroidery was already done and it just lacked the outlines to complete the embroidery.

But well, you know, outlines can be a little bit tricky. They can elevate your embroidery but they can also turn it in a quite boring piece of needlework. Therefore I decided to go with a rather vibrant and daring color combination. And looking at the finished piece I think that I definitely made the right color choices – but take a look yourself! Enjoy! 😀

I am sorry, but the following content is restricted to logged in members of my blog.

Yes, I think you can see that Klosterstich embroidery is one of my favorite past times.
I really hope you enjoyed the pictures of the finished 14th century inspired Klosterstich rose embroidery. And I think you might also enjoy the next step of this project – I will assemble a small “reliquary box” and this Klosterstich rose embroidery will embellish the top lid. 🙂

Best regards Racaire

  1. Beautiful, as always. I love the stem stitch for the outlines, it just looks so clean and neat. You’re inspiring me to pick up a small embroidery project again — it’s been so long!
