A while back, before Christmas, in fact, I received a rather overwhelming gift. It actually sat in it's box after I'd first opened it while I figured out what to do! World Embroideries gave me an abundance of Appleton Crewel Wools. What she didn't know was that I had just signed up to take EGA's Individual Correspondence course in Jacobean Crewel Embroidery.I finally had a day to sit and play and I dumped the whole box out into my lap, just for the sheer joy of it. Wooly goodness, indeed! I've always kept my few skeins of Appleton wool in a zippered project case. I took all of the threads, inventoried them, sorted and played. I stuffed my case until it is bulging and then...put the rest back in their box until I can decide how I want to store it all going forward. I certainly have plenty for my samplers for the course. Thank you!
