Woodland Crewel Work

Isn't this a beautiful crewel work. Work being the optimum word, because there is a lot of work in this, nostalgic woodland scene. I love the little chipmunk at the tree stump, the flowers and the colours are lovely too.

I saw it in the thrift shop, it was framed, but not the type of thing I would hang on the wall. So I left it, but it was crying out to come home. So I went back the next day and bought it. It's from the seventies. I washed it carefully the other day and placed in on a towel to dry.
I've been thinking of pairing it with some vintage fabric I have from the sixties, and making it into a bag. Of course I may change my mind by the time I get to it.
