Another few bits of Crewel for the class I’m doing – all to demonstrate Long and Short stitch and the blending of colours. The first piece is about 4 inches tall, and the other two are small examples (the better ones!) from a sampler of six different examples. I do not find it easy to do the way the teacher wants us to, that is, using two strands of Appletons wool in the needle – these are done with a single strand which in my humble opinion gives a finer result. If this were not a prescribed design, I would have also done the centre differently!
This pink one is about the same size.
Another thing I’m working on when I need something brainless……this is a piece of hand dyed cotton which will be a table runner or something, and I’m doing very simple Kantha type stitching on it.
