While working fiendishly on this one bedroom remodel, I forced myself to give in to my “Crewel” side…
Jacobean style embroidery has been calling to me lately, and I have an affinity for the Tree of Life, so it is only natural for a creation that twines the two together!
I found this design via the web, printed it out in reverse and created my own iron on transfer with a Sulky pen. (See tutorial)
I just couldn’t see the tree on a plain solid background so the Tree is on this greenish mix twill like fabric.
I’m using the Medici wool that I found on close out. Those little wooly skeins have been singing to me since I found them in the store…
What do you think so far?
I still have the wristlets on the creation board too. For embroidery: the dragon is in waiting, a little rose-kid is done and awaiting a face, and two other small purses (not wristlets) are done and just waiting for their embroidered flaps.
Lots has been happening! Whoo hoo, this weeks blog posts should be full!
Your life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun!
