I just had to share these photos with somebody, but for copyright reasons, I prefer not to put them on my regular blog. But since I'm just sharing with a few special friends, here are some pieces from the Victoria &Albert Museum.
On the day we went the Textile collection was closed and I was very upset. The worst thing was, I thought I'd missed Martha Edlin's casket. http://www.vam.ac.uk/collections/textiles/video_casket/index.html
But then we started looking through the museum and in the English 1500-1760 section I found the casket and more.
This piece is only about 5x5 and wonderful, although my photo is a bit blurry.
This is maybe about 3x6 and they call it a pincushion.
The next two are small purses.
It was all wondeful. I'll write some more on my regular blog this week, but I had to share these photos with you.
