Byrde of America

'Byrde of America' based on an embroidery on the Oxburgh Hangings squared up ready for stitching as a sample at next weeks Brewery Arts class. The original embroidery was probably stitched by Mary Queen of Scots whilst in the custody of the Countess of Shrewsbury, (better known as Bess of Hardwick). It was worked in cross stitch on linen canvas and along with various other separately worked motifs was mounted on velvet.
