Ultimate in bead embroidery
Sorry about the no post yesterday. We of course have our March Madness sale going on right now, and I was so exhausted last night. I got home, made the kids dinner - then passed out on the couch. So much for getting things done last night ;-)
Marg posted a link to our internal mailing list last night with some incredible pics of a very old bead embroidered carpet. The pearl carpet of Baroda features hundred of rubies, sapphires, diamonds, and an estimated 2 million basra pearls. The carpet is going up for auction at Sotheby's Doha Qatar.
