Beth Russell - Fruit Kits

"Portable and perfect for beginners."

In 1862, William Morris designed his 'Fruit' wallpaper to high acclaim. Lemons, oranges, peaches and pomegranates would all have been seen in the conservatories of the larger Victorian houses. Rossetti painted many famous portraits of Morris' wife Janey holding a pomegranate.

From this wallpaper design Beth produced charming needlepoint kits featuring four fruits, including the famous pomegranate.

Finished size is 8 x 8" (20 x 20cm), making a small cushion or, extended with fabric, a larger pillow or bolster. The series of four would also be handsome framed for the kitchen. Canvas size is 13 x 13" (33 x 33cm).

Kit includes #12 Zweigart white mono deluxe, Appleton tapestry wool, needle and easy to follow instructions for for basic tent/basketweave stitch.
