February 5, 2013This IS Your Granny’s Crafting – Crewel Dreams
I don’t have anything new to show you. Bad Betty! I’ve been hard at work on a certain project and it’s been taking up all my time. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t had time to scour ebay for vintage crewel kits to add to my queue! Wanna see what I’ve come up with?
I love this Erica Wilson owl pillow! He looks so surprised to be on a pillow, don’t you think? This particular pillow kit only comes with the stuff to make the front so I’ll have to choose my own backing and trim, which I’m kind of excited about. I think I will try to make it look a bit more modern with a colorful backing and trim.
At the estate sale where I found my God Bless Our Pad, I narrowly missed out on this one, and tried hard not to be too bummed out as I can’t get them all, right? But when I saw this on ebay you better believe I snapped it up quick! I plan to put this one in Little Betty’s room when it’s finished.
I probably don’t even have to tell you how much I adore this squirrel by Erica Wilson. Is he not perfect? And how do I not yet have a squirrel crewel?? This will probably be the next vintage kit I dig into.
I apologize again for my full and complete crewel obsession lately! Bear with me – I’m sure it will be something else before you know it!
