Older Needlepoint on Show

The Domestiquete has been at an antique show where she found all sorts of examples of old needlepoint.  The framed picture is probably the oldest piece, with the elaborate scrollwork chair upholstery a bit later (I'm guessing it is trame) and then the teal chair seats date from the early 1970s perhaps.  They all are wonderful, aren't they?

I think it's rude to point out typo's, but - LOL - 1970 isn't antique! I take that personally! ~grin~

I love the chair. Btw, must tell you. That William Morris tent work acanthus panel piece in coppers from the embroidery site that you featured awhile back that I so loved- my friend Francesca of http://lasoffittadeltempoperduto.blogspot.com.au/ sent me the kit! Wool and all! A wonderful gift! :-) Also the most beautiful linens that I've ever seen (Italian ones) to try.

eRose, you are funny. But 1970 was 42 years ago. To many folks, that is the Dark Ages!

I remember the acanthus panel but not where I found it. Congratulations on the present! It is likely a Beth Russell kit. If so, the quality is first rate. You are lucky! The linens will be fun to play with but the NP is a great gift.
