I could only wish that the detail was such that I could see stitches!
 I'm very interested in Chinese and (believe it or not) Mongolian
embroidery and embellishment, but I have no the first clue where to
start looking.  I do know that satin stitch was used extensively,
along with Pekingese stitch; does anyone know where I could find
inforation about what other stitches might have been used in the 13th
or 14th centuries (Yuan dynasty)?
