Beautiful Embroidery

Flower Detail: Top Panel of Jane Nicholas Mirror stitched by Lorna Loveland.

I wish I could see the entire finished mirror surround, don't you? Oh, the power of a woman with a needle!

UPDATE: I found the entire mirror!!!
It's beautiful, isn't it? via

Oh, my! The HOURS that must have gone into this piece! To think that young girls were always taught the basics (at least) of stitchery. That doesn't happen anymore, does it? A simply gorgeous piece of embroidery. Thanks for sharing, Rosemary.

Mama Pea and Gail -- My grandmother was a very good needle worker. She completed a Crewel bedspread that was beautiful. She said they got the spelling wrong, it should have been Cruel Embroidery. Smile.
