I visited Kelmscott Manor in Gloucestershire, erstwhile summer home of William Morris. There are many wonderful textiles and tapestries there and it is easy to see the source of some of his inspiration from the beautiful fruit trees in the garden. It contains some fine drawings by Sir Edward Burne-Jones and some stunning portraits of Jane Morris and her two daughters by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, although the one I've attached is in the gallery at Dulwich.

She seems to have very big hands in proportion to her body. I've seen these paintings too at exhibitions in London. This one is quite soulful.
