Tudor embroidery find!

As a Tudorphile and cross-stitcher, I am doubly excited about this!  Said to be the only surviving piece of clothing worn by Elizabeth I.  Similar pattern to her dress in the Rainbow Portrait, according the the Daily Mail.  That is the outfit QEI appears in in  the denouement of Six of One!

Is it The Bible or is it Shakespeare?

Mis-attribution of  quotations, particularly when it comes to confusing Shakespeare and The Bible,  makes for a running joke in ‘Seven Will Out:  A Renaissance Revel.’  How good are you at sourcing quotes from these two epic sources?  My new Goodreads quiz will help you find out.  Bible experts and Shakespeare aficionados, game on!
