|Japanese Stab Bound Book with Embroidery and Embellishment|
My luck continues with yet a third embroidered piece. This time it is from artist and friend, Elsa. I met Elsa through the Facebook APC group. Since she lives just a few minutes away from my house we agreed to meet and have been friends ever since. Elsa created a piece for me using cyanotype on a dark piece of fabric. She then did French knots in each of the “flowers”. You can see the white stitching down the right side of the piece. I added an embellishment that I found at a garage sale some time ago. I have since altered the binding. I added another linen thread to the middle of the binding so that instead of two horizontal lines there are three. It makes the binding look more complete. I photographed this book on my dining table hence the tablecloth shows a bit. Thanks Elsa for the wonderful piece of embroidery.
