A hommage to an unknown embroiderist

Last weekend Anneli of Bockfilz was so kind to sent me these pictures as a source of inspiration on my journey with windows.

The design is identical, the colours are giving an extra feel of being alive.

Astonishing windows

These embroideries are shown in a vintage book (1979) written by Lynnette de Denne called Creative Needlecraft. They are so beautiful designed and stitched that I wanted to learn more about them. Unfortunately my journey through Google-land wasn't succesful. So this is an hommage to an embroiderist who's name is unknown but her work is treasured.

Have a lovely day.
