Epitaphs and Embroidery

I’ve done a little work on the white coffin, and am just trying to decide what should go into the little cartouche on the top.  I put R.I.P. on the black one, but I’m thinking of putting Ex. 26:36 on it (For the entrance to the tent make a curtain of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen – the work of an embroiderer.)  What do you think?

Here’s one of the little blue flowers.  It’s made with Rajmahal Art Silk in bullion knots.

In my next post I’ll show you the thing that has been distracting me from my white embroideries.  It’s embroidery as well, but not white.
