Victorian beaded and embroidered square

Chart only. A magnificent square embroidered frame, in the middle a rather small bouquet. This pattern occurred on two ebay items, but we could not secure permission from either seller to show the originals. On one the background was two shades of purple, on the other two shades of red, and the bouquets were placed slightly differently. This pattern has been reworked so the frame is symmetrical and the bouquet has been adapted to fit properly. We've picked two shades of blue as background; feel free to choose your own.

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.

We have no permission to include the original images (asked, but never received an answer). Pattern reconstructed, corrected and adapted by Sytske Wijnsma.

Bury St. Edmunds Cathedral Kneelers

Selection of photos

Forty-eight photographs of kneelers in the cathedral of Bury St. Edmunds. This is a small sample of the phenomenal collection of embroidered kneelers in that church. 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. See https://parishkneelers.co.uk/churches/suffolk/bury-st-edmundsbury-cathedral/ for smaller images of 81 of them.

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.

Englishwoman's Domestic Magazine

Handpainted square embroidery pattern on grey paper. Nine colors, no indication which colors were intended to be wool and which Filoselle, probably the yellow and white colors judging from similar embroideries. Beading would also be great for accents. The pattern is symmetrical, but shown complete.

Sofa Cushion in Leviathan Work

The Englishwoman's Domestic Magazine

Single sheet, printed on cream paper. Geometric square design in four colors. Leviathan work is also known as Smyrna stitch, a cross-stitch and a plus stitch (vertical and horizontal) to make a square. The stitch covers a larger area than a simple cross-stitch would.
