The Victoria and Albert Museum. What do you think of when you see those words? I think of a huge place, full of just about everything. Everything and more everything. This was going to be fun…
Going into the museum I was determined to spend the time I had looking at textiles and specifically textiles from the 15 – 17th centuries. I asked a gentleman at the information desk where to go and moments later I was on my way to a wonderful few hours soaking up inspiration from the past.
As I wandered around I took photo after photo. I was like this golden ballerina – lost in the clouds. These photos will provide me with inspiration and ideas for a long time. I’ve uploaded the photos for you to enjoy so you can have a similar experience to me and get lost in the images of embroidery from the past.
