Finish and Updates

I have finished a crewel design. The original pattern used wool on linen and I thought it was okay but I enjoy cotton thread more. So I redid the pattern on grey cotton using DMC threads.


It was a fairly quick stitch up and the colours really remind me of winter. The original used fall browns and reds but I liked the blues as more of an abstract tree. I am thinking of doing a tree for each of the seasons that just has different colours and a different stitch for the ground. I used a variation of a chain stitch in light grey for this one.

Over the break I also did some work on the tiger and sockeye.

For the next week I will be working on the sockeye I think although I like the tiger for travelling.

Hope everyone had a good holiday season.

xxoo,
Rebekah
