Two worms, one embroidered in green and khaki wools in tent stitch, the edges outlined with wool. The second in maroon, beige, brown and black stripes, also in wools and in tent stitch.
2 ½ in; 6 cm with ruler straight over the worms
Very good condition. These need to be sewn to a backing and would look sweet in a small frame.
