While I was visiting home, one of my most favorite memories was digging through my mom's craft supplies. We went through all of her yarn, fabric, and odds and ends. I was fun to see fabric that I remembered from growing up. Once we stumbled on this Crewel Embroidery Kit that my mom started in the 70s before my brother and I were born, I knew that I had to finish it! Growing up, I'd seen this little kit hanging around, but this time I saw it through new eyes...it's a vintage treasure! It's from 1974 and it would be so sentimental to be able to finish a project that my mom started before I was even born. :)
After discovering this treasure, we were looking through old photos, and we stumbled across a photo of my mom, sitting at a table working on this embroidery kit. So now I'm determined to finish this, I'll keep you updated on my process, I've done a little needlework, but never crewel embroidery. It will be fun to try!
Have you ever attempted to finished a unfinished project for your mom? Or found an old project that you'd like to restore?
