The sea and sky......

Sea and sky moths by ohmisterfinch
I came across this tapestry recently which was absolutely filthy!
It was originally in a firescreen which had also seen better days.
After a light hand washing it came up beautifully but instead of remaining a square its shrunk and went into a rhombus shape!
It dried flat so all was good.
I had initially thought it was woven as the stitches were so tiny until I took it out of its frame but its all hand done.
So some have the sky,some have the sea and some have the sails blowing in the wind...
