Mirror Mirror On The Wall

You are most definitely the fairest of them all! I'm back at Lytes Cary again today. I asked Mr GBT to photograph all the sections of the stump work mirror frame so that I could appreciate them when I got home [my camera doesn't cope with low light levels]. The information on line says it was made by Mrs Leopold Jenner and it incorporates 17th and 20th century work. It must have taken hours to stitch.








If you want to take a closer look the photos should enlarge if you double click them.

    1. So glad you loved it too. Any of us who stitch [even just a bit like me] can appreciate just how much work there is here.
