Beth Russell's William Morris 'Acanthus' Tapestry Kits

The Acanthus plant is found in the decoration of many ancient cultures; William Morris used it extensively. The original silk wall-hanging which inspired these kits (now at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London) was designed by Morris in about 1880. Beth Russell has interpreted the hanging into a needlepoint rug, cushion and bellpull. To achieve the closest match to the blue of the original, she has blended two shades.
