Roundup: Crewel to Be Kind

While most people consider crewel a style of needlework, the word crewel (or cruell) actually refers to the wool yarn, not the embroidery. While crewelwork was traditionally used with wool yarn, today it's used with a variety of yarns, from silk to cotton to even beads and feathers.

The popularity of crewel has waxed and waned over the past four hundred years, but one thing remains constant: It's a lovely form of decoration for your home, no matter what the century. See some of my favorites below.
