Medieval Image of the Day

I've been traveling this wk and I'm just back. I have a workshop I'm teaching to prepare for on Wens so I am very busy and don't know if I will be able to post until later this week. Therefore... we have a lovely image for you to contemplate... :)

Here she is, from 1660. All by herself... spinning... lovely... cute dog to keep her company, nice warm outfit, black (a very expensive color to dye in those days)... Nice distaff too.
