Winter Wreath Crewel Embroidery

Winter Wreath Crewel Embroidery

My latest finish is done! This is a crewel version of my earlier winter wreath. I made a few changes to the pattern. Switching from white to tan fabric gave me some trouble, and I can’t tell you how many times I felt compelled to take out stitches and change colors. That’s sometimes the way …

Strawberry Thief Crewel Embroidery

Strawberry Thief Crewel Embroidery

This is my latest finish and I’m very happy with how this out. I really love pinks and greens on this one, they are so soft and yummy and a delight to work with. Developing the details on this one was loads of fun. Making the strawberries with the trellis is one of my favorite …

A Sheepish Halloween Crewel Embroidery

A Sheepish Halloween Crewel Embroidery

A Sheepish Halloween is a project I’ve had completed for a long time, or maybe it wasn’t quite complete. I knew it was missing something, so finally I picked up my needle and added french knots to it, even a bunch of them! (Hard to go wrong with french knots, isn’t it?) The little sheep …

Summer Hare Crewel Embroidery

Summer Hare Crewel Embroidery

The Hare Crewel Embroidery has been a long favorite of mine. It was fun to design and stitch. The motif seemed to fun not to play with some more. Way too fun! So I’ve made a follow up in the series, yes, it will be part of a series, yet to be created, but I …

Crewel Sampler Embroidery

Crewel Sampler Embroidery

This week I’ve taken another look at the Crewel Sampler project I made a few years ago.  This one was bigger than many of the others I have done. I do really enjoy a larger project now and then, they give me a chance to really spend more time with an embroidery and develop the …

Squirrel Wreath Crewel Embroidery

Squirrel Wreath Crewel Embroidery

What a busy stitching week it’s been, and it’s not over yet! There is still time to work on more projects before it’s done. This will be the second finish of the week. It almost makes up for last week’s lack of finishes.    These colors were truly a pleasure to work with, so warm …

WIP Wednesday

WIP Wednesday

Nothing wrong with being a day late as usual here. I’m working on two projects, although one is on the sidelines while waiting for more crewel colors. My new dragonfly stumpwork is getting all the attention while waiting. The camera pretty much hates focusing on the fabric when there is too much dimension, so I’ve …

Three Berries Stumpwork Embroidery

Three Berries Stumpwork Embroidery

Here is another one of the embroidery patterns I created with people new to stumpwork in mind.  These little insects are probably the most fun to stitch! For this project, I took the help of Trish Burr’s book, Color Confidence in embroidery, which is a really great resource. I’ll say more about it later because …

Let Your Heart Sing Crewel Embroidery

Let Your Heart Sing Crewel Embroidery

I’ve just finished a fun crewel project I adapted from an earlier design. I love the bright colors on the little bird, and the way the wing turned out. I have another couple of crewel projects I want to do before I turn to do some stumpwork projects. I’ve promised to make the dragonfly project …

Winter Owl Crewel Embroidery

Winter Owl Crewel Embroidery

I’m celebrating a new finish! This little owl was lots of fun to stitch. I really like the big staring eyes. They look almost worried, but it must just be the snow that’s the problem. 🙂   I have a pile of new designs in the works, all waiting to be stitched up, so it’s …
