Crewel wool embroidery...


Another small project with crewel wool.


 Petal squares... I manged to crochet 10 squares each from the five colours except for blue, which had enough for nine only; even though they are of the same brand and new balls. So, to get an even number I made one with all the colours  Now, all is left is, to put them together and do the border.

Few months ago I attempted this motif but it turned out with many mistakes. I re-read the pattern again and gave it another try. I think this time I manged to get it almost correct.

From the thrift store... needle lace pieces, I do not know whether they are hand made or machine made though.

Thank you for stopping by today..

till next time,



  1. crewel work looks good and the crochet squares ill make into a lovely little blanket

  2. Yes, good solution with the extra square in all colours, it makes it really your own blanket. Theneedle lace is very veautiful. I can't tell if it is handmade or not. Even made by machine it is a little treasure.

  3. Your crewel embroidery is beautiful, I love the tree with the 2 little birds.and your crochet work is wonderful.

  4. That is certainly going to be a lovely crocheted blanket! I love the colours. I also love that vintage-looking piece with the rose. So pretty.
