Out of season, of course, but I have just finished this embroidery with autumn leaves. I have used some very old silk threads that I have found at the flea market. I would’t normally buy silk but I have made an exception for these ones. They are on some nice big wooden spools and I think they are from the twenties. I got them for extremely cheap and the woman selling them seemed surprised I’m not bargaining. The threads are very thin and very frail, it was quite a challenge to use them, as they would brake quite often. But the colors are beautiful and I liked using something that would have ended up in the garbage otherwise.
