Largess for Baroness
I made up these small pieces to give to our new Baroness at our first Baronial Investiture. They are made using motifs from "A Scholehouse for the Needle" by Richard Schorleyker, 1632. Cream dress weight linen and Maderia silk thread. The lacey edging is just blanket stitch. I filled the bigger ones with a home made Elizabethan pot poporouri. The Assisi work items are little pincushions. Each one of the above only took an hour or two each to make.
