    A modern embroidery by Sukey Best (although in her exhibition she claims it was made by Elizabeth Boleyn 1529/30 )- see http://www.sukybest.com/works/page/16/#. However, it's a lovely piece of work, and it certainly fulfills my fantasy of what might have been.

    'This remarkable fragment of embroidery was probably the central part of a cupboard cloth. It has been attributed to Elizabeth Boleyn and made in the winter of 1529-30 before her daughter Anne married Henry VIII. It depicts a falcon with Tudor roses (the badge of Anne Boleyn) pecking at a pomegranate (the badge of Katherine of Aragon). The French Ainsi sera, groinge qui groinge ("that’s the way its going to be, however much people grumble") around the central design, was Anne’s motto then.'

1530s. The colors are understated but lovely, and the drapery is likewise lovely. I'm not a huge fan of huge dresses, but I love how symetrical thisall looks.
