Vintage embroiderybook

Last week I came across an article in the NY-post which led to me finding a beautiful old embroidery book at the library.



The book starts with a beautiful poem by Li Po, a chinese poet of the T`ang dynasty.




So if you like to know more about this book, just find your local library and if you are in luck, you too can see these gorgeous patterns!

Have a lovely day
