Have a lovely stitching weekend

In the 1680s Nicolas Arnout engraved a series of pictures of women and girls of quality, and just like you, these women of quality had a penchant for their stitching. What sort of head covering do you wear when you stitch, I wonder?? Have a lovely weekend whether stitching or in the garden.


  1. No headcovering unless I am outside, then sometimes a sun hat. Looking at the corsets and bustles those ladies are wearing, they don`t look very comfortable, do they? I wonder what they would think of my baggy sweats and T-shirt?

  2. i wonder what kind of hat goes with sweat pants and a t shirt?
