Textile Riches from the Rijksmuseum & Fabulous Website

You will be enjoying exploring the Rijkmuseum's wonderful website for hours - it is so beautiful. Here are just two of the wonderful items you will encounter. The first is a wonderful lace collar. Look at the repertoire of needle lace displayed in the drawn thread 'dice' - all are different.

I shall be heading home from the North of England tomorrow - it has been a wonderful day with the North Eastern Regional Day of the Embroiderers' Guild. I had the difficult job of judging a sampler competition. Of course I wanted to give prizes to everyone because the work was so beautiful.
