Creative with canvas

I know that I should be concentrating on my Jacobean Crewel work – but I just don’t feel like tackling a big project at this moment in time. Instead I decided to rummage through my sewing bags and found a couple of kits that I bought years ago (and I do mean years ago!). Amongst them was a little canvas work kit by Sue Hawkins – I think I picked it up at one of the big stitching and knitting exhibitions – and as I am thinking of doing a canvas work module after my crewel work – it seemed an ideal project for the week.

The most pleasing thing was the speed at which I was able to complete the project. All I have to do now is sew the pieces together, stuff them and add the tassels.
