Work Like an Egyptian - Scribe

Did you know that only scribes and priests were taught how to read and write in Egypt, the position was often inherited and pasted from one generation to another in the same families and not everyone could become a scribe.

Scribes were usually only men who learned to read and write at a special school. It could take 3 to 5 years for a scribe to write and memorize all the hieroglyphic symbols.

and this is the assembled Steward

This is the panel with all the figures ironed onto the background fabric so far....

The panel is nearly completed....I only have to position my Pharaoh and Queen

and the Harpist on the background fabric. Wow... I've just realized that it's not as daunting a task as I thought it would be. The figures are coming together nicely.

Happy quilting until next time
