This Charming basket of flowers for the crewel embroidery artist was adapted from the center of a bed counterpane in Williamsburg's textile collection. The original was embroidered with crewels on a twilled linen and cotton ground. The antique is probably French and dates from the middle of the Eighteenth Century. This reproduction crewel artwork by Elsa Williams for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is , in a word, spectacular. As with all of the original designs produced by Elsa Williams' Needleart Collection, you'll use only the finest natural materials to stitch your masterpiece into life. The results can be treasured for generations to come!
