Fab Fabric Friday Four Days Late!
Here is a fabulous Scottish lace, with a Garden of Eden motif. There are Adam and Eve in the foreground, sitting under a tree, presumably the tree of the knowledge of good and evil because it appears to be laden with fruit, and they are surrounded by all kinds of creatures.
There are elephants, camels, deer, foxes, tons of birds, including an ostrich; monkeys, unicorns, squirrels, and something that seems like a bear; even little piggies. Horses, lions, lizards, and bunnies; a dog; and of course a snake. There are a lot of wonderful trees, bushes, and flowers.
I'm not sure what Adam is handing Eve, but I bet it's something he wants her to sew.
