Tiny

We went away last weekend, and stopped in Paeroa for the essential bit of op-shopping. Just look what I found... It's an embroidered handkerchief, but not just any old type. The stitches are all worked diagonally, with a single thread, and it's called 'petit point'. For a reason. Look at the bottom photo for scale...

WOW. Seriously, whoever did that was skilful indeed. The fabric's not even distorted, they must have blocked like mad after stitching it but I can't even imagine getting it flat! What a find!
