Close-up of 'Little Things'

By popular request, a detail of one of the small panels in 'Little Things' 10 x 13 cms (4" x 5"). The photo of Amelie has been digitally printed onto fabric and made into a tiny cushion - about 1 x 1 cm small - the fragment of wool blanket and button are both part of a collection I have of old textiles. The broderie anglaise cutwork embroidery is hand stitched as part of my teaching samples for the (very) old City and Guilds embroidery syllabus. The egg shells are free-range from chickens in my village.
