Winterthur extent clothes and things!

Winterthur also had some lovely extent clothes and other embroidered pieces on display.

This was a set of 18th century pockets which were *huge*. My hand is in one of the pics for scale.

There’s a story behind this sampler:
IMG_0847

It was done by an 11 year old girl – and they had her portrait next to the sampler. Wait for it…

Ok, here it is:
IMG_0849

You cannot convince me this is an 11 year old girl. Surely her parents couldn’t afford a portrait and the painter gave them a deal by turning an older portrait of a 35 year old man into their daughter by adding longer hair and a pink dress. She’s got a 5 o’clock shadow for pete’s sake! And that is not the nose of an 11 year old girl!

Clever darning:

Gloria and I had to get back to Maryland, so we parted ways with the other ladies who were going to be having tea elsewhere in Delaware and took a quick look through some one other exhibit before we headed home.
