Ready for another needle book with Klosterstich embroidery? …and in the mood for a hand embroidered medieval 14th century rose?
Well, that’s great because I have a cute combination of both for you today. 😀
Again I turned one of the recently embroidered Klosterstich patches into a small needle book for my Travel & Largesse Fund. I think this needle book is even more beautiful that the needle book which I finished yesterday. …but well, I am biased, therefore decide yourself. 😉
And here the picture of my new needle book with the 14th century Klosterstich rose – enjoy! 😀
I think it was love on first sight when I encountered this type of 14th century roses for the very first time. And well, after all this years filled with many different embroidery projects, they are still one of my favorite Klosterstich patterns because they are so simple, beautiful and rather easy to make.
Though I normally try to stay as close as possible to the original 14th century rose pattern and my favorite white and yellow color combination for the filling of the sections, I have to admit that I really love to play around with the colors for the outlines as well as the colors for the background of this roses.
I think you already discovered the blue outline around the middle section of the rose. This blue colored thread was a rather daring combination but I still like it…
Well, enough for today, I have still two more patches which want to be turned into needle books with medieval hand embroidery. Enjoy your weekend! 😀
