A Subtle Hint ..

These pieces were made by Mary, Queen of Scots and has a very symbolic meaning: the cat - or "catte" - represents her cousin Elizabeth I whereas Mary herself is the mouse. It is believed that Mary created this while she was her cousin's prisoner. This is one of the many pieces that Mary either sew or embroidered that has survived to the present day.
