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...

Thanksgiving weekend...


Learning Embroidery


I completed few more new stitches;  threaded backstitch, petal  stitch, leaf stitch, bullion stitch. 
My stitches are still not so neat as I want them to be.

My latest project is leaning embroidery with Crewel Wool.  I drew up small pattern to work on. I do like the texture that the thread gives with the satin stitch.

some progress has been made in quilting as well;  it is quite a long way from being finished though.
