Tuesdays inspiration

Good day :)
Since Yankee Cross Stitch closed and I have acquired the shops Patternayan Crewel wool I have decided to make some designs for kits that can be created with these fibers. 
I have some already started and I am working on more.....I have been drawn to crewel work for some time.......as you can tell by my "Noble Leap Of Faith" design...........searching for ways to fill in spaces with different stitches has been fun .........I came across this blog "Anna Scott"  and her post that is up is for a design called "Lone Tree"........it is beautiful, I just love the mounds that are filled with much couching.........so check out her blog it is very inspiring...........
 here is my share of my "Noble Leap Of Faith" that has been printed onto a linen-cotton canvas fabric. I am embellishing it with the crewel wool and I am still undecided how to finish it. 
Here is a peek :)

Embellishing with crewel wool 

still a work in progress :) 

having fun.....:) 
These pre-printed panels will be available soon along with the crewel wool.....embellishing is up to you....a chance to be creative.....maybe we could do it as a challenge and share our progress and ideas.........here is a question? do you prefer to share on a blog or on a Facebook group?
thank you for checking out my blog today
