A crewel embroidery freebie

I am sick with the flu and my brain is mush so usual posting is on hold. Instead I thought I would post a freebie though because it’s been a long time since the last lot. I thrifted this pattern a few weeks ago, it was drawn in marker pen on a piece of…vellum? Some sort of frosted plasticy stuff. I think it’s a nice simple introduction to crewel embroidery and I’m looking forward to stitching it. The original owner even marked colour choices which is helpful. Half the time I just sit there overwhelmed by what colour to start with. I have two more slightly advanced crewel patterns to scan for you at some stage too. Then I have some candlewicking patterns because I get a lot of hits searching for those. Anyway enjoy the freebie and if you stitch it please let me know, I’d love to see!

    I certainly hope you feel better soon! The cooties seem to be going around. A week or two ago, I had a icky cold/sore throat for a few days followed by a stomach bug, ick.

    I hope your kitties are keeping you company on the couch!
