I did as Deanna of - http://eclectic-meanderings.blogspot.de - told me. A LED light to expose the object.
If you go to her blog you will see beautiful and interesting embroidery and stitching.
What I like is - you won't believe it - MENDING
Can you see the hole in my blue scarf - eaten by moths because I did not wear it for a long time which means about 3 years or so. The colour is ok - it really is blue - like this.
Moths are awful - they like wool - I do, too.
The curvy embroidery is on a bag owned by König Ludwig II (1845 - 1886, you know Neuschwanstein, he had it constructed but never lived in there).
Here it is a newspaper snip in my studio journal.
so I use the hole as a center for this buttonhole wheel
it even morphed into a buttonhole cup - it is 2 cm wide
Also French knots wanted to be there
And this is the backside of the same hole
Another version - some flowers are now on my scarf
I will wear it on the bike.
