Elsbeth Schoof 1918

20th Century | Germany

Needlework samplers are always contemporary historical sources. "Pray and work (Bete und arbeite)" as well as "war years (Kriegsjahre)" apparently were important terms for Elsbeth. I immediately came across an attempt to explain: Pray, so that everything will be well again and work, so that it goes on in life and in the war year 1918. The end is approaching. The World War had cost immeasurable suffering and numerous victims.

Elsbeth started her sampler with simple needlework exercises. She divided the two alphabets with pretty little borders, where she practiced the constant colour change.
