We have found these vintage Chinese embroideries at the flea market, for less of 1 euro for both of them. They were framed in old, damaged frames, so we just saved the embroideries. They are very pretty and also good learning tools. I have started one embroidery myself, trying the same technique, using some very old silk thread that I have found at the flea market a while ago. I’m still very far from the beautiful details and precision of the vintage embroideries, but I’m trying to get there :).
