Ode to Miss Haversham

Miss Haversham's Vow is a hand embroidered pillow in blood red thread and is my ode to the character Miss Haversham in the novel Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. The inspiration behind the pillow is that Miss Haversham writes a vow in blood after being jilted at the altar! She vows that she will stop the clocks and freeze time, sitting in her wedding dress and letting the wedding feast rot before her until her beloved returns!!! Drops of blood frame the embroidered text, a poem I wrote myself!
