Crewel Treat

Hi again

Guild members usually get together on a Monday but it’s not on today because of the Easter Monday holiday. So for those of you who are hanging out for an embroidery fix here’s another blog post as an Easter treat.

One of our members Barbara Adams is an accomplished stitcher and sewer. She can turn her hand to anything and her grub roses are to die for. About a year ago she was browsing in the library when she came across a book of crewel patterns. It was love at first sight.

Here are some pics of her latest work – it’s an Elsa Williams kit called A Jacobean Panel:

Just lovely Barbara and thank you so much for sharing your embroidery with us.

Bye for now. We’re off to join family at the National Museum of Australia to see the exhibition of bark paintings from Arnhem land.

    Thanks, Barbara (and Carmen), for the lovely work. Yes, I was hanging out for an embroidery “fix”. It would have been “crewel” to deny us all (sorry!). Anyway, back to my silk postcard challenge, “stitching love and hope”.
