having just enjoyed doing the lovely coif puzzle I thought you might like to see a blackwork coif I embroidered for Strangers Hall Museum a few years ago. It was for visiting school children who were studying Tudor costume. I chose for my pattern - with his permission - one of the great Jack Robinson's wonderful blackwork designs. The other image shows Sarah, one of the volunteers, dressed as Lady Paine, wife of a former Lord Mayor of Norwich who lived at the Hall, wearing the coif. Love Philippa. This is absolutely brilliant! All the years I have known Philippa, and not known that - but then, we have always had so many other things to talk about. And even better to find a fellow fan of Jack Robinson, whose books on blackwork are simply my bibles.
