A stitch in time

This beautiful piece of embroidery can be found on display in Florence, tucked away in Santa Maria Novella. We stumbled across it as we sheltered from an incredible storm back in June. There were others, all equally resplendent with their ode to nature and detailed lace work. They must have been quite a sight for those attending Mass back in the day.

Alice, for you. With thanks.

  1. What a lovely thing - I shall look out for it when I am next in Florence. Thank you for this kind message and for all your comments on my blog. Now I can sit back and enjoy stories of naughty Miss P and the New Kitchen.
