Crewel Work! Yay!

Enlargement in progress...The linen for the shower curtain arrived Thursday, astonishing me with the speed of its arrival. It is, as I write this, drying after its quick trip through the washing machine.

It wasn’t quite what I expected, but I can blame myself for not ordering a swatch before I bought it — and it is very pretty in a rustic way. I may wash it a couple more times to soften it before I stitch it. Linen gets softer with use, but I don’t really want to wash the wool stitching — even washable wool – constantly.

So I have the linen, the design is being enlarged – almost 1/2 way there at this point. The leaves are about 10 to 11 inches long. I think it will be gorgeous in the heavy wool on the coarse linen.

Now I get to play with color. I haven’t ordered the yarn yet. Much fun!!!
