Flower of Toscana : Casalguidi Embroidery

I have tried Casalguidi embroidery (Ricamo di Casalguidi) that I have been interested in from before.

* Flower of Toscana *
Zweigart : Cashel 28ct
DMC Coton Perle : #8, #12
DMC Cordonnet Special : #60
'La broderie blanche : Jours et dentelles' / ISBN : 978-2756502212
'Gli Antichi vol.5 FIOR DI RETICELLO'

This embroidery was born in Toscana in Italy, and the raised stitches create 3D effect like a relief sculpture.

I decorated the hem with Drawn Thread Work and Reticella (Reticello).

It is said that almost Casalguidi embroidery is whitework, but some days ago I found colorful one too.
Hmm, probably modern? Gorgeous and wonderful.
