The project, Queen Catherine’s Book Cover, Bag, and Pyn Pillow, consists of three related project pieces: a tasseled, silk-lined bag with different historical designs on each side, a ribbon-tied book-shaped box that fits inside the bag, and a pin cushion. The bag and the book-shaped box are stitched not only with the traditional black that gives black work its name, accented with gold and silver threads and paillettes, but also with red and green silk.
