Atlantic Cod, a New CHS Release

I stumbled across an old fish book that described how the Atlantic Cod was the staple of New England diets for centuries. Cape Cod, I read, was named after the abundance of the fish in the area. Once the fish were preserved with salt, then shipped and traded, images of the cod appeared on stamps, legal documents and weather vanes. There's a four-foot, eleven-inch wood carving of a cod hanging in the Massachusetts State House.

Thanks to Kathy Bonham for stitching our model, Lakeside Linens for providing the beautiful Misty Rain linen, Needlepoint Silk for the floss (DMC conversions given) and to Valley House Primitives for creating this "Old Wood" style frame!
