Tapestries of Mary, Queen of Scots

THIS is why I felt I really needed to go on this tour.  We got to see the tapestries made by Mary, Queen of Scots, and Bess of Hardwick Hall, Countess of Shrewsbury.  These tapestries are shown at Oxburgh Hall, and it was wonderful to study them up close.  I took loads of pictures of them!!  I hope a picture of every single slip (so there are a lot of pictures of them).  These slips were sewn onto a green velvet, probably in the early 1700's.  Prior to that it is believed they were just stored in a trunk.  But they are amazing to look at!
