[HNW] Elizabethan series

Really, all of my research says that it's not crosstich. Where did you find the reference and could you send it? I can't wait to show it to Bonnie who has a real bee about Bess and Mary and the hangings.

All of my pictures, blown up only show one direction in stitch, not two. Is this the often refernced half cross stitch?

Please let me know.

    However, I'm still interested. The Oxburgh Tapestries or Hangings were 
    called that because of the so-called Tapestry stitch, which is needlepoint 
    and pettipoint. Ah how I love Victorian Classifications <Gryn>

  Just a little reminder: the Oxburgh embroideries are all done in cross-stitch.
