Skill level:
This elegant needlebook is based on the Miniature Tulip Tile design.  Combining goldwork and surface embroidery techniques, this panel is worked on a dark prune-coloured silk background with silks, gold metallic threads and beads.  The design features a brick-red tulip, set in an ornate, diamond-shaped border, surrounded by tiny gold spangles.  As this version of the tile is to be used as a needlebook, the centre petal of the tulip has been embroidered on the silk background rather than being detached.  The design may also be worked as a panel to be framed.
