I have a soft spot for embroideries based on illustrations and this one,  embroidered by Kate Elisabeth Rolinson (Poesie Grenadine), is particularly lovely. lt's based on an illustration from a children's book from the 1930's. I especially love how delicate it looks, stitched with presumably only one strand of floss on a French Lace hand kerchief. More about this commissioned piece on Elisabeth's blog Poesie Grenadine.


  1. Thanks for the feature! This commission was one of my favourite embroideries to work on and I'm actually working on a similar blackwork 1930s book illustration at the moment - you can have a peek at my progress here:
