A Flame Stitch Pin Ball

Silk/wool floss in flame stitch based on a few examples in the Winterthur collection. Silver ring from Colonial Williamsburg, and silk ribbon from Burnley and Trowbridge. Happy to have it done and able to use in the shop!

Beautiful! I really respect flame-stitchers after starting a wallet and finding out how time-consuming this is!
The pinball looks gorgeous. What shape did you use to make each of the halves?

Wow, that's *very* impressive, and so pretty! Lovely job!

This looks so pretty!
Beautiful embroidery and with the silver ring and silk ribbon it really looks like a piece from a museum's collection. Very well done!
