Cluedoing Burney



Needlework and Tapestry at Parham Park, Pulborough, West Sussex


This booklet has a lot to do with my upcoming collection @PalgraveLit on ‘#FrancesBurney and the #arts.’ I am not going to give much away at present but I still invite you to take a quiz. What is the relation between this booklet and Frances Burney? No, she did not write it (this was your lifeline). Did anybody in her circle have anything to do with it?

Poll with some #Burney suggestions to scratch your head on. Take your pick! Answer in a future post when my project will be ready to set sail. Meanwhile, connect the dots, or rather the stitches!

  • Mrs Burney’s needlework
  • Mary Delany’s needlework
  • Capt. Digby’s needlework
  • Daddy Crisp’s needlework
