Beautiful embroidery. Love the color combination, especially the corals.
It is a nice combination. I don't know anything about folk embroidery in Bulgaria and whether the corals are a traditional color combination. But I have used this piece in probably every room in my house because it just seems to go with everything except when I have put out my blues and whites..
This is gorgeous!
It is not cross stitch, but some kind of a satin stitch using several floss threads ( maybe 3) together.
The picture didn't transfer well, but I'll see if I can send a better one. Picked it up in Sofia in the early 80's.
I've just started exploring Bulgarian embroidery so I am very excited to see this piece. I love all the outline stitches and how they make a simple design look very intricate.
