This might be the mother of all UFOs. This is from back in the 1970's when I was doing crewel embroidery (be gentle. I was young and new at it back then).
Fortunately for me I found this crewel yarn at the quilt show this weekend. This entire batch cost me $4.00. Maybe I can actually finish that picture, which will cost about $500 to frame...
This little quilt was an experiment. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it. I'm not very good at experimentation. I'm glad the picture is fuzzy so that you can't really tell what is going on (or not going on) here.
Another useful purchase: wooden spools.
Look! I can see the face of Elvis in my jacket:
