I have finally been able to find some stitching time. The last few months have been a trial, it must be said. I have been meaning to try out some crewel work for some time now and have been building up a stash of Appleton's wool. Some members of the household weren't as enthusiastic about my attention being on the embroidery, and attempted to fight for some lap space.I'm working on a crewel kit that I found on eBay - an old Elsa Williams pattern of a squirrel and some pine cones. It's great fun, I'm really loving working with wool.
