This unfinished chasuble from the Haslemere Collection demonstrates the exquisite embroidery many religious were able to produce. [It is way beyond my City & Guilds in Ecclesiastical Embroidery!]
Arrived at Downside today to find a new box of photographs from the collection. Wonderful images of the inside of St Mary's Abbey at East Bergholt, some external images of Haslemere, and several images of the Community. What treasures! Thank you Fr Boniface.
