The Victoria and Albert Museum in London has recently made available these charming pictures and line draings of some of the patterns by Florence Caulfield, of South African plants & flowers.
The patterns are free for you to print and to use in your embroidery. I’m crazy about the drawing in the middle of the second row and plan on using it for our next Stitch Along with Me Project.
Line drawings like this which have large areas and not too much detail are wonderful to use for needlepoint. In a future post, I’ll talk about how to transfer them to canvas so you can stitch.
Further down on the page are pictures of more of her embroidery without patterns.
Just lovely stuff.
