This is a little crewel project that I recently stitched. I saw that wonderful little kit on the Jenny June website and just had to have it. That site went out of business very recently.The design is called "Edwina Gorey" and it comes from The Sampler Needlework.It has a little notation to explain what the project is all about. It says about "Edwina Gorey": Our heroine reflects an earlier time when mourning samplers became the fashion. Her distress is still felt today but for a different reason. Her every fiber cries out .. "but you don't understand, I can't do anymore!" Her name owes a debt to Edward Gorey.The stitches used in this project are stem, chain, detached chain, satin and bullion and it came with Appleton crewel yarn.Pierrette =^..^=http://community.webshots.com/user/sunshineplus
