"Fay, I collect pictures of early English embroidery. This is a collection of things I have seen on caskets, mirrors and such. Some have been altered like the man on the right was sitting and I made him standing, the mermaid I just drew in the style…"
Thank you for your very nice comment on my Japanese Embroidered fan. Your casket is amazing and a fun piece to examine. A lot of thought and stitching went into this, and I think it is so cool that your husband stitched his comments about his hammer and saw that made the box. Such a one-of-a-kind, heirloom piece to be cherished for generations!
