Crewel wool elephant....

Here is my completed piece. I really did enjoy working with crewel wool, and I also like the way it turned out. I have some more wool left, and I have drawn another pattern to work on.


Crochet ...
Yarn for my projects usually does come from the thrift store, so when I got these pretty coloured wool from a friend I was thrilled; I started making Petal  Squares right away...

Thank you for stopping by ...
till next time,


  1. your elephant is very regal, wonderful

  2. I love your elephant piece ... it's exquisite. You mention having wool to work on another piece ... we'll look forward to seeing it when you're done. Enjoy!


  3. Your elephant turned out so nicely! And what a treat to receive some yarn from a friend. Those colours are lovely, as will be the creation you make from them, I'm sure.

  4. Your elephant has a lot of character - such a great project. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

  5. Your elephant is absolutely lovely.

  6. Your elephant is beautifully done and you certainly have a lot of good luck in finding wool at the thrift store. Your Petal Squares are looking great.

  7. The elephant turned out beautifully! Satin stitch is one stitch that I can never make neatly enough. Love all the details you added to this guy. Are you leaving it in the frame to hang on the wall? I've done a few like that and also found a nice tutorial for how to finish off the backing. If you're interested, I'll send you the link. Your new yarn colours look really nice together, and your crocheted squares are off to a good start! Well ... back to the Jays ;) ... I think we're eating supper in front of the TV tonight!

  8. Beautiful embroidered elephant Gaia :) Love all the details! Hope you enjoy your new crochet project - lovely colours to work with :)
