Miniatures and more...

These views are of the bed in Leicester House, miniature crewel using one strand of DMC floss and a #12 crewel needle.

This is the wing chair in The House of the 3 Widows, again using one strand of DMC floss. The following pieces of needlework are full size.

Silk and gold embroidery, vase is couched with gold.
More silk and gold work, lots of long and short stitch, my favorite!
Appleton wool and DMC floss for birds wings.

Front view of a stuffed figure using crewel stitches and Appleton crewel wools. Figure is full size, approximately 18" high.

Rear view of same figure.
Silk and Gold embroidery, design from the Erica Wilson book.
Stumpwork picture using DMC floss and gold threads.
Sections of crewel embroidered bellpull using Appleton wool. Last picture of grouping shows the entire bell pull.
