Textiles from the Burrell Collection

A recent trip to the Burrell Collection, Glasgow brought these embroideries to my attention.

Also these 3d embroideries, amazing gold work.

And this lovely beaded leopard. 

The stitches in all of them were tiny, the beads also tiny, and all done by candle or day light, I find that incredible.
