I just finished a challenging project, I struggled with the fabric.  
I probably needed to fire up the old White upholstery machine, but  
the last time I tried the motor was dead.

Thanks.  DD does beautiful knitting and hand embrodiery.  I was not  
successful in passing along sewing skills to her, so I am delighted  
she does those well.

Her living room and dining room both have lots of those colors.

I have just aired out (stored in mothballs for over 45 years) a  
bunch of my mother's unused crewel kits and yarn, DD wants to finish  
many of them.  I am so happy they will get worked.   I used to love  
to do crewel, but I cannot any more.

That is really pretty! And how excellently worked! I didn't try crewel yet,  
but I felt strongly attracted by it ever since I first saw it and knew what  
it was. When I was in some English town with a - friend... Well, he was  
working and I had lots of time to go sightseeing, so I visited a  house from  
Elizabethan times. There was an original canopy bed with reconstructed  
crewel curtains - loved it!

Anyway, even if you weren't able to pass on your sewing skills, she does  
have a tendency towards textiles, so no reason to feel a fail. The Gift  
doesn't always take the same form. ;-)

You should really try it!  Back when I was doing crewel, I was  
amazed with all the different stitches used.  Some are very  
challenging, all are beautiful:
