I'm sure I'm not the first to use the play on words afforded by 'crewel embroidery'.



Its not a very nice sentiment but I'm channeling some impotent anger in embroidery rather than at the people around me!

Its four strands of cotton floss on calico.

That is one of my most favorite sayings. Ever.  It's the best 'cruel crewel' I've ever seen!
