More about this digital file


Stitched from a painting by an unknown artist, this postcard sized image of women tending the washing radiates with superb warm hues, cleverly blended with the needle to simulate the strokes of the artist’s brush.

Worked primarily with a single strand of cotton thread on a linen ground, this image offers something to the embroiderer who is looking for a challenge!
