Time Travel

Thanks to Anny, I discovered this Textile Conservation Studio video that digitally recreates a 400 year old tapestry.   The tapestry is one of a series of tapestries from Hardwick Hall, home of Bess of Hardwick who stitched with Mary, Queen of Scots when Mary was confined at Bess's home by order of Queen Elizabeth I.

It is amazing how things change over 400 years!

  1. Since historical needlework is my primary area of interest - I loved seeing this post Jane. It was so very interesting. Thanks for the link. Melody

    1. My pleasure, Melody. I thought it was fascinating myself. Not that I expect my stitching to last so long but I do enjoy seeing what happens to threads and colors over time.
