Tiny Needle Tuesday

 Miss Wisdom is done!


 Up next in September (all ready?) are two Miss Friendships and a pot of flowers.



The best thing I can say about the crewel adventure is that I got it kitted up in a plastic box so it's more user friendly. Nothing kills a project for me quicker than having to dig it out to work on it.



Another struggle I had with it this week was finding something to stretch in on. My regular embroidery hoops didn't do the job with the slick linen. I had an old knock off Q Snap that I got from Micheal's that I hated for cross stitch but it works great with this project when I stick in in my floor stand. You need both hands with this stuff and apparently more stitching talent than I possess but ugly as it is I am enjoying it so it's not all bad.



And.....I found one more of Erica Wilson's Beatrix Potter crewel kits to add to my collection. I need to get over this obsession soon. I really don't need another thing to work on.

  7. Oh! Miss Wisdom might be my favorite one so far! I have the feeling your crewel work may be like knitting lace - doesn't look so great while you're doing it, but once it's finished...
