Holy Cr...ewel

I've been a little bad.

So I might have mentioned before that the vintage crewel bug has bit me.
It started with a small 70's kit I bought, of a little bunny.
I was going to sell it, but then I though...why not give it a try?
And I LOVED it.

Of course, when I saw the amazing kit sold by Betty Crafter, I had to have it.
I had spied the vintage crewels it was modeled after--
and since it seems unlikely I'll find one of those,
the modern just-as-cute version made me happy :)

The next one to really catch my eye was this pink mouse.
I mean...adorable, right?

My happiest ebay win, though, was this one:

Now, that's a completed version...I bought a kit.
And it's similar, not exactly the same.
But isn't it GORGEOUS?!

I would really love to have that one on the upper left
of the birds, but I couldn't find it.

I've recently also bought this one...

...and this one...
(a frog! mushrooms!)

...ummm, and this one.
(So that is either a tiny owl, or a giant ladybug.
I'm leaning toward a tiny owl.)

It's hard to say when you'll run across the same exact kit again,
you know? And they're pretty inexpensive!


I'm going to be pretty busy for awhile...

Those are cute! And if it's cheap and fun to make then I figure it's worth it.

LOVE these! I've been collecting these for years. No idea what I'm going to do with them. Wallpaper a tiny bathroom? Goodbye, Crewel World!
