My mother’s hand quilting immediately came to mind for the Weekly Photo Challenge of… INTRICATE.
Often she would hand-stitch a section, look at it, then pull it all out as it wasn’t “up to standard“. Mum would then re-sew the offending section.
And as if this hand-stitching wasn’t enough, for this particular piece, she hand-dyed a lot of the fabrics. Nanny was good… real good!
