A 1950’s Sampler
I discovered this sampler in my mother’s house whilst looking after her. Sadly her battle with Alzheimer’s and dementia was in its final stages and she was unable to tell me about it but I know that she made it at school or as part of her degree in art and textiles. I like the simple use of fabrics and the subtle colour palette, I’m guessing this was partly due to limited materials in the post war period, and the designs and patterns she created.
The lettering on every right hand page features different patterns.
A poodle with attitude!
Love the foliage on this page and the mix of patterns.
1950’s style swooping birds and another very decorative tree
My favourite design is this wasp with gossamer-like wings.
