Picking Crewel Back Up

Looking for a take-a-long project recently, I picked an old crewel project back up ~ a 1980 kit from Erica Wilson called "English Garden". I'm hoping with another couple days worth of stitching, it will be ready for framing. I was showing my progress to my sister over the weekend, and she commented that crewel work has seemed to decline in popularity. I have always loved this design and am looking forward to finally getting it finished!

WOW - there are so many different & wonderful stitches in this piece!
Your sister is right - sadly this type of needle art has begun to fade away. I'm glad to see you took this up again! It's going to be a masterpiece when finished!

That is soooo pretty, Mary!`

I love having projects to take with me. Of course with the little guy, I don't have two seconds to focus on anything but his misadventures... LOL! But someday I'll grab my bag of fabric and threads again when I head out the door :)

I can't wait to see it when it's all done.
