Assisi Embroidery

These are a couple of bookmarks I purchased in the beautiful town of Assisi in Italy! I loved the simplicity of the Assisi Embroidery which is worked by stitching the background and leaving the design unstitched. We wandered the streets of Assisi and marvelled at the stone work and the beautiful little shops and the embroidery of course!


I couldn't resist this little mat which was being finished off by the lady in one tiny shop - I waited until she finished it and then purchased it - so it really is very special!


And this is a pinkeeper I have recently finished - using one of my favourite DMC variegated threads and working a Gift of Stitching design!

  6. I love Assissi embroidery! A couple years ago, one of the stitching magazines had an Assissi piece. I stitched it and made it into a pillow. It is beautiful!!!
