Drawn Thread Embroidery

This pattern is from TH.De. Dillmont's Encyclopedia of Needlework.

I worked this sampler in 1999. It was my first drawn thread embroidery attempt. Now I use it as a sampler to teach my students this technique.



This is one of my unfinished projects. I cut the wrong thread accidentally and it has been lying around for at least five years now.  Unfortunately, it cannot be salvaged. One of the downsides to choosing an elaborate project.
