Wonderful crewel embroidered cushions

How beautiful are these embroideries. They are crewel embroideries with wonderful Appleton wools on antique linen. Of course they are our mother's wonderful handy work she is amazing. Her stitching is always impeccable. I found these (and a few more) tucked away in a box when I was home in Sydney. I told mum it was such a shame so I took them and have made them up into cushions. These are going on Etsy. I have a few more to finish off so check back in a week or so. More images on flickr.


  1. they are gorgeous rachel...clever mum

  2. Your mother, young ladies, deserves every ounce of the respect you show her! (and she has brought you up to have good manners, too!)
    You say she's in Sydney: I'd love to get in touch with her to see if she can give me some directions regarding the best way to learn this fabulous craft ...
