My current stitching project continues apace, with two more of the designs completed. All the designs come from Palestinian Embroidery Motifs – A Treasury of Stitches 1850 – 1950, by Margarita Skinner and Widad Kamel Kawar. This wonderful book is a treasure trove of traditional Palestinian patterns. I am still not too sure of cross stitches though. I find them a bit finicky to do, especially on a fine 18ct fabric. Still only one more to go. Below are the two completed recently. First up is Disc of Stars, followed by a variation of the Kohl Holder motif. Kohl is apparently an ancient eye cosmetic.
