Millennia Designs: Mary Queen of Scots 'Catte and Mouse' Tapestry Kit Collection

Mary Queen of Scots was a keen needlewoman and whiled away much of her 19 years of imprisonment in England at her stitching. Surprisingly, a great deal of it survives to this day housed in the collection of the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, the Queen's official residence in Scotland and Mary's home between 1561 and 1567. As with many of her tapestries, a deeper political message lies beneath the simple scene of a cat and a mouse. The ginger cat is the red headed Elizabeth I of England, the mouse Mary, her captive plaything. Mary's cypher is also prominent.
