Woolwork embroidery, square piece intended for a cushion cover. Donors estimate is around 1850.<br>Original colors have faded. The background colors on the original are red, dark red, blueish green. The chart is done in red and dark red only, because the blueish green looked horrible when applied to the chart. Probably the original shade was different from that on the DMC palette.

Narrow beading pattern

Narrow panel, probably for a towel rack. Originally the background was an allover bright red, but probably that was not included in the original pattern. A two color background, light in the centre and darker in the background, matches similar patterns, and blue contrasts better with the brown color range of the motif. Of course, suit your own taste.
