Scrapbook Snippets 1970: Should Men Wear Makeup and Jacobean Embroidery

It was a big article in one of my FAVE Brit  Teen Mags, JACKIE
Funny that people are still asking that lol! as this article states. I guess it's one of those neverending questions :)
 Meanwhile Turner Prize Winner Grayson Perry  just gets on with it.

Interview info at Guardian News
I just LOVE his Textile Work and the story behind this tapestry piece.

Meanwhile back at studio Jafabrit
Doodle Cloth Sampler

I decided to add some french knot's, stem stitch and buttonhole stitch on the flowers based on the jacobean embroidery my mother did around the 1960's.
