tread & thread
The second, in an as yet untitled series of four embroideries on handkerchiefs that belonged to my aunt. This particular handkerchief is decorated with butterflies and now the piece is finished I see they add too much cheer but I'm loathe to unpick them... The images are taken from photographs of woodland paths in Derbyshire. Today, while writing about walking I connected the words tread and thread for the first time.
