My late Mum stitched this tapestry many many (60+?) years ago. For most of that time it was rolled up in a cupboard until a friend of theirs offered to make a wooden frame and turned it into a fire screen for her.
On the left is a brass trivet made probably around the same time as the screen. Real Dad was a machine fitter at ICI in Stowmarket and would have made it there for their new home.
For the first time in many years we have a proper wood mantle and once the living room has been painted I shall find some more things to display on it.
Thank You for comments about my painting and decorating. We did all our own decorating in the past but usually shared the work between us with Col doing the ceilings and woodwork and me doing walls, so doing it all myself is a bit of a new achievement.
Back soon I guess
