Stitching exhibition

Hello beautiful stitchers

Today I want to share an experience I had in last days here in Mexico city in the museum Franz Mayer.

I had the oportunity to visit an exhibition of embroidery labours of mexican girls and womans in XIX and half XX centuries.



This is the poster of the exposition








The meaning of the words stitched:
"This embroidery was made by Maria de Jesus Martinez in the Convent of the new instruction  in San juan de Dios, it concludes before age 6 "
Can you imagine a little little girl of 5 years almost 6 stitching in linen with silk??  Amazing!

This is the complete project of this little girl:




Other embroideries in the exhibition:




Almost all the embroideries were made in linen and threads of silk in years 1800 to 1910



It was a beautiful experience

I just want to share this special moment with all of you

Have a great day

Happy Stitching :)

Mini Mandala Mistery 3

My next chatelaine is Mini Mandala Mistery 3



I chose to stitch on a piece of white linen 28ct
I chose all the supplies to options more affordable for me, not only because the money also the easiest way to find them here in my country, so in the case for varigated silk thread I chose the closest varigated DMC 
All the delicas and treasures I converted to Mill Hills




This is are the firsts stitches



Happy stitching!!  =D
