I love this post. How wonderful that you are preserving the crewel work. I love the last one and the note inside was so special. Funny, I just posted the other day about a needlepoint piece I bought at a local antique shop (http://thisgirlbeads.blogspot.com/2008/02/preserving-past.html).

I have don't any crewel work. My mom is working on a piece for me right now. And she made a really great stocking in crewel for my nephew. You can see it at http://thisgirlbeads.blogspot.com/2007/12/stockings.html.

I do cross stitch, but I think someday I'd like to learn how to do crewel work.


Well that last part brought a tear to my eye. My Oma used to loved doing tapestries but I think they were either blue and white (Delft like) or gloomier darker roses.

Some of those embroidered flowers just sing!


Wow Margie!
What a gift for us to see these crewel works.
You really have a great collection of handmade treasures (which includes the note that you found in one of the pieces). Thank you sooo much for sharing with us!!!!!
And have a wonderful Sunday!
Elsita :)
