Sayla embroidery

Pictures of the two pieces I bought from the ladies at the farm

40 x 45 cm
a typically constructed bag
rectangular with a beautifully pleated edge

the design is couched thick cotton thread
before stitching the thread alternatively
knotted and a white bead added

40cm polyester square

the intricate design is stitched using fine wool thread,
closed herringbone and back stitch
the hand knotted fringe is also fine wool thread
