Dinners at my boyfriend parents' place inspired me to do this. His father is from Holland and has quite the collection of delightful delftware on display. I just HAD to attempt to embroider them a 'plate.'

I didn't actually get to fully complete it before my deadline.. (giving it to them)  But I thought it still looked presentable, so I did.

I did not manage to take any proper photographs of the 'completed' piece. I tried to take a few during the car ride there, it was so shaky... and then my camera died.

It's in an 8 inch loop. The artwork was from a delft coffee grinder I have.


This is a much more accurate photo of it (colours, french knots, it's general appearance) 


Happy Dutchman
