17th of December

Now for some eye candy!

This sampler is in the Voortrekker Museum, it had so many elements.  The cat and the ship was two surprising bits, on the sampler.
A Hand quilted Bonnet. Just one of many examples on display.  History can give us hints of why we enjoy the needle arts and crafts we enjoy, today.
Bonnets, for everyday and those special occasions.
 A shawl to keep the chill away.
An embroidered waistcoat.
A Christening robe, all the embroidery was stitched by hand, just below the waist one can still see gathering bands.
Some of the tools, which was used to transfer designs.  Many which have been passed down from Mother to daughter.
