consist of a pole screen (p. 209) embroidered with
Shirley poppies on white satin ; a table square
(p. 211) with drawn thread work and applique;
and two cushions, one (p. 211) with mauve pink

at the four corners being backed with lozenge-

applied in mauve with green leaves, also applied,
all the ornament being outlined in silk needlework.
