Tauranga Embroiders' Guild exhibition

Amongst the usual class set pieces and ornamental artwork I picked out these three as my favorities. A zippered workbox that would be great for a sock knitting project or similar; a tile which while not of much actual use for anything is beautiful in its design - simple and structural - and appealed as being a bit subversive, with the hand-dyed thread picking up the appearance of a thick glaze; and an item called a hussif, which I have found is a small rolled sewing kit with pockets and so on, for containing the bits you might need for mending socks, should the need ever arise. I just liked the simplicity of the embroidery with its modern design.
