Wool Embroidery Wall Hanging

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.
