A good Christmas gift

Hand made by my youngest daughter; a small piece of artwork on canvas that looks as if it was an altar stone from medieval times - God bless her!

Thank you Catherine Mary!


  1. A beautiful gift from a girl who loves her Dad.

  2. Lovely! And the altarstone idea is appropriate. As I am sure you know an altarstone is marked with five crosses which recall the Five Wounds- an image taken up by the heroes of the Pilgrimage of Grace and, subsequently by the English recusant community as commemorated, so I am told, in the song "Green Grow the Rushes O!" "Five is for the symbols at your door". Clearly a link with "linen on the hedgerow"!
