Embroidery kit made exclusively for The William Morris Society by Sally Roberson.
Both William Morris and his daughter May drew designs on the theme of Honeysuckle, produced both as wallpapers and as printed textiles. Several variations of the design exist for embroidery. The version from which this design comes is a very small part of a beautifully worked fire-screen, which can be found at Standen, the National Trust Arts & Crafts House near East Grinstead in West Sussex. It is thought to have been both designed and embroidered by May Morris herself.
Contains full instructions and materials (unbleached calico with hand-drawn design, needle, threads, Morris in Bloom label). The finished embroidery measures 14cm x 14cm, and can be framed or used to embellish a bag or as the centrepiece for a cushion.
Difficulty: level 2
