Vintage Crewel Collection

I have a thing for vintage crewel work and embroidery.  Can you imagine the hours of work people put into these pieces??  I sure don't have the patience (or talent) for that!! When I find a cute piece that is reasonably priced, I add it to the collection in my guest bedroom.

Flowers, mushrooms, raccoon (!!!):


This was purchased from the original owner/ creator and is probably my favorite:


Funky crewel and my poodles:


This is HUGE.  Like two by three feet huge.  I'm planning to mount it over the bed in the guest room but that hasn't happened yet:

And another pretty favorite:

Anyone else have a crewel collection?

That tree is stunning...like...the most beautiful of its kind I've seen. Ever. I've bought and sold these over the years but haven't felt compelled to keep a collection of them, as much as I adore each and every one.
Thanks, Van! I agree and think it is a true work of art. :)

My sister and I did crewel kits with my mom when we were kids. One of my favorite memories! Love your collection!
Thanks, YelliKelli! :) I bet that was fun to work on with your family!
