A little stitch

These exquisite cards are hand made by English designer Elena Deshmukh, and are perfect for displaying in a frame, on a pin board or mantelpiece (and very hard to part with!).  Vintage bird engravings, delicate butterflies and softly coloured florals all embellished with embroidery form Elena's range, which is available from retailers throughout the UK, including Liberty of London. These two lovelies have a permanent place on my inspiration board!

These beautiful images come from Elena's website - take a look at the gorgeous colour palettes and styling.


  1. Beautiful. I love the styling on the book with the cotton reels, it looks so simple but crisp looking.

  2. I love the styling - especially the turquoise and yellow combo. So pretty!

  3. very whimsical and pretty. lovely!
