Delft Blue Tile

 
Some pictures of a Delft Blue Tile that I have embroidered. 
It is stitched on 72 count silk gauze with silk thread.
 
 
Including the list the size is 1,8 x 1,8 cm (0,6")
 
 
For the dutch readers; this pattern (and many more) is published in DHN 94.
You can buy the Silk gauze, needles and Silk thread here.
 
 
 
Note from Wikipedia:
Delftware, or Delft pottery, denotes blue and white pottery made in and around Delft in the Netherlands and the tin-glazed pottery made in the Netherlands from the 16th century. Delftware in the latter sense is a type of pottery in which a white glaze is applied, usually decorated with metal oxides. Delftware includes pottery objects of all descriptions such as plates, ornaments and tiles.
