I have at last finished my William Morris wall hanging.I have collected bits of Morris fabric for many years , just offcuts of curtaining or upholstery material and now they are going to hang on my landing wall.
The scraps have come from foraging in the remnant baskets of numerous fabric shops and some are left over pieces from my own curtains. I have had some of them for years and they remind me of different times of my life.I fell in love with William as a teenager full of revolutionary spirit and romantic asperations!
The designs and colours have been a lifetime love and today when everything seems so "throw away" my admiration for Morris has grown even stronger. His philosophy is apposite and his work is timeless,it never palls, what a hero !
Pity Mrs Morris seemed to prefer Rossetti!!
