Craft and Book with VickiI have a friend who does estate sales and early on in her career, she invited me to stop by one. I did and I found Christmas crewel kits for $2.00. I loved them. They were funky things from the seventies, perhaps the sixties. Didn't matter because they spoke to me.
Crewel is very similar to embroidery, something I had been doing since age nine when my grandmother set me down with a pillowcase she had stamped, thread, and a needle.
But eBay and ETSY had the whole series of holiday crewel works and a large picture one. I bought them.
Today, I picked up the last two in the series, Love and Noel.
