Christian Embroidery

It's not uncommon to run into those framed embroidery renditions of Christ or the Virgin Mary when you walk around sometimes, usually you see it hanging in someone's hallway or when you look inside someone's house, usually hung in a place of pride. I can very much imagine old 80 year old ladies patching away their retirement days. Found dead one day with their needle still in their rigor mortis hand. The ones I found just now are nice but I've seen far better in the wild. Striking that a lot seem to be from the Orthodox Church rather than from the Catholic or Protestant.
