Finished: Great Blue Heron Crewel Embroidery

No Comments
It measures 9”x12” and is stitched on gray linen with Appletons wool and a bunch of no-name crewel wool threads.

I finished this embroidery. I stitched for over five weeks, many hours per week. Whew!

I started out with a tidy arrangement of wools. Near the end, I grabbed whatever I needed and have a mess to prove it. I kept track of my stitches on my original sketch.

Working with wool and linen is a treat. They go together perfectly, and I never tire of the combination. I’ve purchased some linen twill, a traditional crewel fabric, and I’m looking forward to trying it out.

Late afternoon sun often visits my embroidery projects.

I was so involved with this project that I didn’t spend much time planning another one. So now, what should it be? I think I’ll start sketching and see what calls out to me. In the meantime, I need to learn how to frame this project.
