Inspiration and work in progress

Mrs Murray was clearly a skilled embroiderer and has taken her inspiration and designs from this magazine and excellent little book on Jacobean embroidery with the most wonderful illustrated plates.
Lovely to be able to follow the making from start to finish, a lttle capsule of history in itself and very much of the period. The little book has her name in the font and the date 1929 so I have sort of built the story from that. I feel that was when the work commenced
