The Thursday Three – 1930s woolwork embroidery panels

I have just taken delivery of these three woolwork panels, completed around 1939. Classic designs for France.

Not in greatest condition when they arrived, stiff with dust and some odd marks.

All have come out with a delicate wash.

This one- left-  will be a cushion front in salon.

The one –bottom left- a cushion on dining room bench. I will leave a broad strip of the canvas back fabric exposed down each side when I make them up as I like the juxtaposition of textures.

Serendipitously all my accent colours!

Bottom right-the country cottage design is beautifully worked but not my bag, so is sitting on Etsy now if anyone would like it?
