Competition! My first!

In the post http://elmsleyrose.blogspot.com/2011/10/projects.html I said that I felt that after a long period of lesser health, I felt it was a better idea to re-start practical embroidery with an easy project, rather than The Bishop’s Cope project which I want to get as technically correct as possible.

New Project – to be done in Renaissance Crewel Wool, Elizabethan Range,

wooly

Now – I haven’t come up with a better name for the project than “Woolly Flower”.

I’d like to have a competition, just for fun.
If you can think of a cool name for this 1661 piece, add a comment below.

The person who provides the name I like the best will win a plait of 100% finest Australian Merino wool top. This is an absolute joy to do stuffing with – SO much easier to handle than normal wool or artificial filler.

This is a bit of a specialise present – really for the interest of er, people who stuff small things (such as raised work) but I’m a bit short on ‘cool things to give away’ but I couldn’t have a competition with a prize, now, could I?
