The embroidery from Dala Floda in Dalecarlia is spectacular. The many colors and abundance of floral pattern are used on several of the folk costume garments from the area. Jackets, caps, braces, cuffs and lovely, lovely mittens.
Mum is a terrific knitter and always manages to answer my SOS pleas. This image is like a collection of landscape miniatures and not dissimilar to the type of mittens I hope to be able to master one day.
