John took me for a treat down to the New Forest Centre in Lyndhurst today where there is an exhibition of Lady Montagu's work. So I don't have to re type everything about her, I have added the photos instead. Don't forget to click to enlarge.
These three were part of a series and the first two were about 7 foot high.
She is a very diverse needle woman. So may different fabrics, stitches and techniques are used throughout.
There was plenty more to see including a 26 foot long tapestry on the history of the New Forest in the museum itself. A very enjoyable and inspiring little exhibition.
