Silk shaded thistle brooch.

This little thistle was embroidered on a beautiful Campbell tartan silk. I used stranded cottons but felt they needed highlighting as the tartan was quite dark so I added some metallic thread stitches.


  1. I really love this with the tartan background. The metallic thread accents are perfect!

  2. Thank you so much, it was a present . The person in question was a Campbell before she was married so I was very pleased to get some silk in that tartan!!
