Jacobean Leaves

It is finally ready...

... the crewel embroidery kit I promised to make available as kit almost 12 months ago is finally ready and in the shop.

The instructions turned out to be rather substantial once I got all the diagrams and pictures in place, so I decided to spiral bind them into a little booklet so that they are little more user friendly.
As usual I have marked the design on the linen so it is all ready to go.

The design is as always also available as a digital download pattern, which is great if you already have a stack of wool. This one uses primarily Appleton crewel yarn and three shades of slightly variegated yarns. The colour combo is rather simple too so if one of the three colour families is not to your liking, you simply replace that run of colours with your own choice.

Anyway, must fly - just wanted to let you know it was up, since it is over two weeks since I promised it.

Hope you have had a lovely stitchery weekend,



  1. Hi Anna,

    What a beautiful design! I love the blues and golden yellows - they remind me of France. It's on my list for the future...first I really should get going on the Blue Elegance design I already have!

    Liebe Grusse,

    1. Hi Kathy - it is such a long time since I originally stitched this piece. Seeing it all kitted up makes me want to do another one...
