Textured Floral Crewel Kit

I decided to start a new project after reading a Teresa Wentzler blog post on her own crewel design. I found this Dimensions kit online and thought it was pretty, so here is my new project (and progress!).

Of course, one of the first things I did was read the instructions. But apparently I skipped over some minor detail about separating the strands of yarn. So I have run out of the purple and will have to substitute some matching floss from my stash for that in a couple of places... And the design doesn't lie quite as flat as it should... so it will be really dimensional in some places... wink, wink
