This is Amber :)

Specially posing for me, to the knitter of the blanket she's wrapped in! Dad and mom are very kind to use the blanket daily. Such a bliss to know that it has been so much appreciated :)

This tiny needlepoint is 16 stitches to the centimetre. That is 16 stitches to 0.39 inch. Stitched with wool on silk gauze. And the size is 11.5 x 8.5 cm ( 4.52" x 3.35" ). No record of age but it cannot be newer than 19th Century. It's a beauty!

Another spectacular beadwork and needlepoint ( Berlin Work - Late 19th or early 20th Century ) chairback arrived from the UK ... In perfect condition with a few missing stitches at the background, most likely by moths :) The size is about 56 cm x 48 cm.
