This is a brightened-up photo of a portion of this big, beautiful crewel piece I found at one of my local thrift stores:
I think I intended to sell them originally, but I looked at them in a new light once I rediscovered them.
I decided to see if I had embroidery hoops into which they would fit.
Each one of these is 12 inches or more in diameter.
The one above was the easiest of the bunch, and I love the way it turned out.
This one looks pretty decent, also:
I was able to get it a little bit tighter, after I took this photo.
I added all three to my "Wall Of Crewel" in the guest room, and I like them a lot.
How can one tire of looking at bright and pretty flowers every day?
I just love all the color.
