The Alice in Wonderland Screen

The fabulous English needlepoint designer Anna Pearson was sent photographs of a three-fold screen needlepointed with Alice in Wonderland scenes.  The screen is dated 1944 and is in all tent stitches, probably in wool, although where someone would find wool thread in wartime Britain amazes me.  Perhaps this was started before WWII and the yarns already put aside.  Click on the photos for a better look.  Thanks for sharing, Anna.  This is a great treasure!
