New Erica Wilson Crewel Embroidery

No Comments
When I bought this off EBay, I neglected to check the size. This wall hanging is 20”x24!

Who’s that, you ask? A fierce-looking owl, peering out of my 1978 Erica Wilson crewel embroidery kit. Yes, another kit. I just finished the wheat and flowers pillow, so I started another. I have hopes of doing my own design at some point, but these kits offer a lot as far as learning the ropes, or in this case a modified herringbone stitch that is really strange. I keep thinking it will start to look normal, but after many, many hours of stitching, it still looks very odd.
