1939 Hand Embroidered Childs Pictures

Wonderful hand embroidered pair of children's pictures.Original pieces and not from a pattern or transfer. Each shows a bed with a child. One has -In Winter I get up at night and dress by yellow candlelight. The other says In summer quite the other way I have to go to bed by Day. These are quotes from a Robert Louis Stevenson poem. Each approx. 12"x16", they are unframed but clean and pressed. When I received these they were on cardboard with an original letter hand written on the back of each. The letter is dated July 12, 1939 which details the stitcher's thoughts. She details that the linen they are stitched on is homespun and made from flax fibers in Germany. There are initails on each in the corner which represent the grandmother's maiden name. The fabric was taken from her chemise. These would be wonderful framed for a child's room or incorporated into a quilt etc.
