Do SomeTHING: Day 21
My Great Grandmother Ghee used to do crewel. I never really understood the difference between embroidery and crewel. Easy, the thread. Crewel uses wool and Embroidery uses cotton floss.
I enjoy how the wool fills in the spaces more softly than the cotton. The wool, however, has a tendency to thin and break. I'm just getting used to that part.
But I love this. I purchased this sampler with the yarn from Alicia Paulson (unfortunately, the kit is no longer available, but you can still get the pdf of the pattern) at PosieGetsCozy.
I've made a lot of things for gifts. This time, this is for me.
In honor of Ghee.
