The flower and leaves in this lace pattern are defined by the texture and colors of cotton embroidery thread.
This embroidery piece reminds me of the ornate brocades and fabrics found in such interiors as the houses of Sturbridge Village and Strawbery Banke. Hand stitched.
Simply filling in a few of the flowers in the fabric gave this piece a unique flair. The title for this piece is unusual, but I couldn't get the idea out of my head that the colors remind me of a lion's mane.
