Citrus Tree in Crewel


I've met my crewel-work Waterloo: a thrifted piece I can't bring myself to make into a pillow. Because it's so big. And the stitches are so big. And because, although it's funny, it looks good in a funny kind of way on the wall.

So it's going to hang there, at least for a while.

I love it too, funky and bright, perfect for dreary winter months. :)

The colors are gorgeous. The snail is a fun addition.
Peace.

Yes, the lemons are very cheerful looking - I like it. It would have made a very lumpy pillow.

I too love it! It reminds me of folk art, with a taste of early-19th-century stenciling. . .just beautiful. I'm so glad you are keeping it on your wall!
