May Morris 'A Garden Piece'

May Morris Garden Piece border tiles: 6 x 3 inch ceramic tiles from williammorristile.com

In spite of the discouraging trifling and dabbling in silks, which is often all that stands for embroidery, I am inclined to take needle-art seriously, and regard its simply priceless decorative qualities worth as careful study or appreciation as any other form of art. ~May Morris, 1888
