New Hand Embroidery: A Study in Symmetry

My latest collection of hand embroidery includes two new symmetrical designs inspired by traditional European folk art. I was researching images of Dutch, Swedish, and Russian folk art and have such an appreciation for the symmetrical designs that are emblematic of this style of art. It's tricky and time consuming to work out the symmetrical balance while stitching, but I love how these turned out.
