Millefleurs & more treasures.
For some time I've planned to make a series of embroideries
on the theme 'Gardens', inspired by the famous millefleurs
tapestries - meaning thousand flowers - which were woven here
in Flanders in the Middle Ages.
The best known and also my favourite are the
' Lady and the Unicorn' tapestries in the Museé de Cluny in Paris,
But so far, this project's only a fantasy, something for later, when
I will have oceans of time, maybe :)
So, in the meantime, I've made this temporary Thousand Flowers carpet,
or better Trash Carpet from the treasures I've found on my walks
or here at my house, including a core of a pear and a plum stone.
And after this playtime, I trew everything in a bowl and then in
note: Mille Fleur is also a breed of Belgian chicken :^)
and the best bay boletes have the size of a champagne cork!
Goodnight & Sweet Dreams :)
