I just finished up this embroidered wall hanging. It really pops in it's white frame I think!
The pattern is from Katherine Shaughnessy's book, The New Crewel. I love her quirky designs, but having no crewel thread I had to improvise. I have a large supply of one-ply wool yarn, so I went with that. The effect is not quite the same but it works!
It's a large piece, about 12" by 14". My walls are pretty full, so I'm not sure where I'll hang it yet. It's worked on lovely brown linen.
