A Wintery Project

I hope everyone is having a great holiday so far. Things are good here. I managed to find some time to do some stitching, and that always makes things better!
This is another crewel work project. I really like working with the wools, but I still have a limited collection of colors. That will be changing soon! This was fun to work on.  There are actually quite a few stitches squeezed in there. To be honest I wasn't 100% happy with the placement of the flowers, but I will make a few adjustments!

I think there may be enough time to squeeze in one more project for 2011, but I will have to get going, time is getting short!!

Happy new year! May it be the best one yet!

How cute. I've never tried crewel work, but it looks lovely. I'm longing to get some sewing done, but we've had varied visitors since the 23rd and I won't get a chance until the last ones leave on 3rd January. Nothing will stop me then though!

Oh gorgeous! I'm doing some crewel work at the moment - though I can't share, it's a secret. I'm loving it! I see more of it in my future. I can't wait for the Embroidery Journal challenge, though I'm a little scared - I'm not sure what to do!

Oh, this is so pretty! I love the colors you used.
