Finally finished this pillow. The embroidery stitches are worked on hand dyed wool that I purchased at The Dorr Store in Guild, NH. For the stitches, I used embroidery floss, wool crewel yarn, metallic thread and a few beads.
My interpretation of a northern New England winter sky. The fibers are Harrisville Design's shetland and a mohair/silk combination. The silk gives it a nice bit of shine. For this hat I did twenty-two color changes.
