Seen at the Weald and Downland Museum open air museum at Singleton.  Painted plaster in glorious patterns.  The Museum information shows that this is a late Tudor (probably late 16th century) mural painting taken from a timber framed house at Fittleworth.  It closely resembles contemporary embroidery and lining papers.  The framing timbers were colour washed in a light background so that the pattern could continue across them.
Possibly something for the Knitter and Crocheter here
