I have a dream to tell you about historical folk embroidery in Russia.
It has much in common with Europeen Blackwork, but still it is quite by it's-self as it has unique and peculiar traits.
And probably it would be interesting to do the comparison between Europeen Blackwork and Russian peasant embroidery.
But for this moment I just want to show few interesing and exciting pictures.
