All were embroidered in the 60s, two for each parish, and there's around 500 parishes in that diocese. Each has the name of the parish, a symbolic representation of the parish or a more general religious motif, to a blue background divided in three parts by a gold and red Y.

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.

Beaded bag No. 1

Den Haan & Wagenmakers, Edam

Pattern for a knitted bag with beading, also suitable for cross-stitch. A parrot sitting on a fence looking down at a dog. The top of the bag has a floral border which can be used independently. The bottom of the bag is a floral design with three red flowers, and blue leaves on a lighter blue background. The middle pattern has an error; the pillar behind the dogs tail does not run all the way to the bottom. Also, the mountain in the background is cut off rather abruptly. Probably this is an adaption of a larger pattern, that has been cropped to suit the dimensions of the bag.

Eight traditional German maxims

Eight single sheets, probably from one booklet, printed in red and green on a green grid. Each has a traditional maxim, about food (give us today our daily bread, clean kitchen and good wine cellar means a tasty meal, a happy face is the best dish, drink and eat and do not forget God), about the clean linens (grown in sun and wind and bleached on green grass it lies now in the locker as pride for the German housewife), about the house (sweet home is happiness only), about patience (do not hurry, good things will wait), and about work (work is an ornament to people - blessing is the reward of effort). Some damage to the bottom of a few patterns, but missing parts have been reconstructed.

Round and rectangular embroidery design

Journal des Demoiselles, Boulevart des Italiens, 1.

Single page, two embossed patterns. They might be intended for a smoking cap, if the rectangular pattern would be extended to cover the circumference of the round one. The relative dimensions look a bit off for a smoking cap, but maybe that was left to the needleworker. Of course these designs would also be suitable for other purposes.

1835 sampler

EARLY-19TH-CENTURY-SAMPLER-BY-ANN-MIDDLEMISS-AGED-11-1835-381103939683

Small sampler, wool on linen, with heavy damage (rodents most likely, moths eat the wool only). The sampler starts off with listing William & Betty Middlemiss / Anthony & Elizabeth Middlemiss / Martha Middlemiss (probably family members). Next two alphabets and one set of numbers between lines, and a text This Piece of work my friends may have when i am dead and in my grave, Ann Middlemiss aged 11 years 1835. The text runs through the right hand margin. The bottom part is a potted flower and two baskets of roses, and one crown at the right hand side. Possibly the sampler wasn't finished.

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.
