Holding in my hand a small needle work treasure I think of the person that had created it long ago. It is a society silk embroidered piece done on a square of natural linen. Perfectly excuted showing skill with a needle this small piece was given as a presentation piece. Given as a gift it is signed with the maker's name.

Most of the intricate silk embroidery is worked on a netting attached to the inner & outer section of the linen cloth.
