Well, I told my mom, if I ever wrote a blog about crafts, I would call it Crewel & Unusual. Then I thought, what if my title is taken?!? So I got in here, and it wasn't taken yet, so I took it! But deep in my heart, I knew I would never write a blog about crafts. I could fill a blog with Things I Like or What I Don't Know, but I have about a thimble full of crafts-related inspiration. No matter! This is where my pun comes in SO handy. "Unusual" is a really broad, vague, practically all-encompassing topic. Why would I write a blog about usual things anyway? There's no such thing as typically noteworthy. So I imagine my blog will be about 2% crafts and 98% unusual.
Here's your infotainment: Crewel is a worsted yarn for embroidery and edging.
The pics above are of my crewelwork, made with my crewel kit! I got this kit from my mom, who got it from her mom, so lets say this kit is easily from the 70's, and never done. Until now. I started it about 4 years ago, so you can see I've made a lot of progress... lol. But I do enjoy it. If I ever finish this kit, and the one or two others I've been
hoarding keeping, that post will be titled, "Goodbye, crewel world." Such a versatile pun!
