Happily, we have now resolved the problem with the silk manufacturer's colour changes, and these popular kits are in stock once more.
This matching pair of mirror frames, which adorn the front and back covers of Jane's first book, were inspired by 16th century Elizabethan embroidery. Their margins are filled with all manner of flowers and insects amid twining foliage.
If you look closely you'll find an anemone, aubergine, butterfly, carnation, cricket, currants, fennel, grapes, hover-fly, ladybird, peas, poppy and poppy bud, snail, tulip, spider web, tiny spider, hedgehog, bees and beehive, owl, strawberries, pansies, dragonfly and fig, all surrounded by a scrolling vine and leaves.
Jane has two Medieval Mirror Frame Workshops scheduled in Australia in 2011. If you are interested in attending, please contact the relevant organiser, whose details are listed on the 2011 Classes page of our website.
