RUM ?????  :P

I know. 😂 rum isn’t a word in French though, so it’s most likely that it’s someones initials.

These look like pieces cut from other items and appliqued on rather than pieces that have been done especially for it. No less attractive for that. It's the same principle I have used making cushions from scraps of vintage fabric. I can perhaps see why it wouldn't be of interest to a museum though. A class project I expect. Maybe it was to go over an altar?

Hello. ☺️ I can guarantee that your description isn’t the case. I’ve had it looked at by professionals, and they have all agreed that each piece was made by a student, and then they were all attached together as a reference. The first section says Cours, which means lesson or teach in French. They haven’t been cut from vintage items.

@Emily  As well as a variety of embroidery stitches I can see a several types of needle lace stitches, embroidered net and I think (not certain) that the square hankie might be bobbin lace edged with drawn thread work in one corner.

It’s quite possible, but I can’t speak French, so have no idea what the website is saying. 😫
