Victoria & Albert Museum
'Lo waneth the Summer the apple boughs fade. Yet fair still my garden twixt sunlight & shade', embroidered motto from the ‘Fruit garden’ wall hanging designed by May Morris and embroidered by Theodosia Middlemore, c.1890s. An evocative wall calendar showcasing colourful details from embroideries and wallpaper designs by Mary ‘May’ Morris (1862-1938). Drawn from the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. The youngest daughter of Arts and Crafts designer William Morris, May Morris was an accomplished artist in her own right, contributing many designs for Morris & Co. and collaborating with many Arts and Crafts makers and patrons, such as Philip Webb and Theodosia Middlemore. This calendar focuses mainly on her influential, free-form embroidery – a more artistic form of needlework which rejected the counted patterns of Berlin work. Images include floral embroideries, including ‘Apple Tree’ from 1890-92 and ‘Flowerpot’ embroidered by May Morris c.1876-1900. Also includes designs for embroideries and wallpapers, including ‘Horn Poppy’, 1885.

Looks lovely but it was a present for somebody else who enjoys embroidery more than me. I would have been grateful for an envelope to have accompanied it.
