Happy St Patrick's Day

For St Patrick's day I thought it was appropriate to have a green theme, so here are two beautiful crewel fabrics with the design embroidered with green threads. One has cotton thread embroidery and the other is in wool.

I particularly like the wool crewel and can imagine using it as a bedspread or cushions on a bed and maybe a chair, then building a colour scheme around the soft, cool greens and grays.

Crewel work is a traditional and beautiful freestyle form of ancient embroidery using wool (usually) to create a slightly raised feature on a linen twill background.
