A Morris and Co. cushion design

"Flowerpot", a Morris design embroidered by his daughter May in the 1880's that can be viewed at the V+A Museum in London.   This design was sold in the Morris and Co. shop both as a kit and ready-made.  Today Erhman Tapestry is the only company I know where you can find such beautiful DIY embroidery kits.  Beth Erhman's "Flowering Gardens of the Silk Road" series, based on 19th century Uzbekistan hangings, is stunning.
