Meri of Agulhas da Meri shares a slideshow examining a gorgeous sampler designed and stitched by embroidery teacher Maria do Céu Freitas. I spot a variety of cutwork and whitework techniques. Meri points out that it includes “more complex techniques such as: needle lace of Venice, Richelieu, different gold embroidery.” Go to Meri’s slideshow post. You’ll be glad you did.
