This was a Penelope design which was bought for me in 1951 as a gift for passing the 11+ exam! It should have been done in wools but I wanted to work it in 'silks'. There is one in Gawthorpe Hall done in the wools and was probably purchased from the same small shop in Padiham! It was originally framed as a fire screen but now hangs in my hall on the wall.
