I started and finished this little brooch last night and and am so happy with how it turned out. I used mostly crewel wool and then a little cotton floss for the detailing. It's on linen, stretched onto the clever brooch form made by Clover that I got in Japan. I haven't found it in the US, if any of you know where I can find them, let me know. I should have bought more.
It's been crazy around here—snow, ice, parties canceled, lessons canceled, one of our cars is stuck in a hedge blocked in by ice in a neighbor's yard. But, there is plenty of food and craft supplies in the house and it's been really nice not driving anywhere or 2 days. I've been baking and sewing and made a new sweater for our bad chihuahua. It's been an unexpected break, which I think we all really needed.
I am between books, which I hope to remedy today. I also have some netflix shows I need to catch up on. I'm not sure when this will happen. Now I just want to do more needlework.
