Exquisite Embroidery for Friday's Find

Here's Friday's Vintage Find.

This doily is one of my personal favorites. 
I purchased it from an Etsy seller from Australia. 
I'll share her link at the end of the post.

Just look at the detail of the embroidery for this bird. 
I wish I had snatched a picture of the back. 
The stitcher's stitches are gorgeous even on the back!  Well done.
The embroidery was done on a linen background and crocheted edging added.

On the other side of the doily, the stitcher embroidered dainty fuchsia flowers.

"Yes, Sassy, I love you more than the linens. . . . . . . . . . . . . "
(Pardon the interruption.)

Detail of the Fuchsia.

Here you can see the back of the needlework . . . almost as pretty as the front.
