With Cunning Needle

I uploaded and annotated my pictures from the With Cunning Needle exhibit currently on display at Winterthur. I wish I had gotten better ones of the sweet bag and knife sheath, but I also wish they didn't have the tag for the bag hanging down over the embroidery. You can see the entire set of pictures on Flickr, but here are some of my favorites:

The Coif from the Plimoth project

Early 18th Cent Darning sampler

Definitely worth a visit if you can manage it.
