A Crewelwork Tray


First I was going to cut it out of the frame and turn it into a pillow. Now I'm thinking it's a perfect tray. For a while, at least.

You are so creative ~ neat tray!

(Long time follower of your special blog here...you really inspire me to be a more feminine and godly homemaker! Only wish I could take some sewing lessons from you...) :-)

I have to admit to being a teeny bit envious of the inexhaustible supply of embroidered cloth your thrift shops yield. What industry there was in the past. I think you are right to leave some of it under glass. My favourite cushion has perished with use.

Gorgeous! Now I have to add an embroidered tray to my endless list of projects to do!

That's genius! I have a tray that has an embroidered insert which I found in a shop once and I really love it but, I've never thought of using framed embroidery as a tray. How fun!

Unrelated to your post, just wondering if you were familiar with this website?

Thought perhaps you might find it interesting! :0)

It's lovely as a tray - why not? As long as the glass is strong enough. And, that GLH cookbook site looks right up your alley, Anna! I think you should choose a book and do it.

I wanted to let you know that I was very inspired when you made this dress. http://pleasantviewschoolhouse.blogspot.com/2009/10/brown-linen-shirtwaist-butterick-5315.html
