Antependium, penultimate panel.
I do love the word penultimate, don’t you? It has a wonderful whiff of victorian melodrama to it, I can’t even read it without visualising a soppy herione being tied to a railroad track by a moustache twirling villain…
Oh, right, the embroidery, ok. Panel eight in order of works, two in the narrative. Young Mary being presented at the temple. Lots of fiddly twiddly bits on this one, stage two took aaaages.
Also, apologies if you click on the image to enlarge it and it comes out upside down. Because of the wobbly frame its easier for me to take the picture upside down, because that’s how I work, then flip it in the edit facility on wordpress, but it seems to flip back to square one when you enlarge – I have no clue what to do about that.
