In Days So Deep In The Past
Jane Nicholas mirror.
I was once a crewel work stitcher. And If I had know about things like the above mirror, I think I would have either been intimidated or inspired. I hope----- inspired.
I especially love the upper left. The white puff and the blackberries. The insects are lovely as well.
I still have three little crewel works--simple vegetables--that have escaped the "tossing" that happens with each house move. I don't know where they are--exactly--but I think they still exist.
I added this masterpiece to my picture file--to nudge me into trying, one more time. To create beauty with threads of wool.
