Day 75: Crewel to be kind!

by MJ Gourd in


Day 75 of 100 Days of a Happy Home!We had a visit yesterday from one of our great fabric "road reps" who we affectionately refer to as "Duralee Mike"! He was showing the latest collections from Duralee and they included a book of crewel fabric. Crewelwork,is at least 1000 years old and is basically a type of crochet embroidery that follows a design outline applied to a cotton or linen fabric. Sometimes these involve one or two colors, sometimes multiple. Which is your favorite?
