This is another of the vintage hand-made items I've save through the years. I'm not sure of the technique, but I think it's called "hooking." It's not needlepoint, and I don't think it's really crewelwork either. It's a bit "plusher," almost like a rug. It's made on a round piece of muslin/canvas cloth, which is attached to a square piece of slightly lighter-weight fabric, and was eventually meant to become a pillow. Or perhaps a seat cover of sorts? I photographed it on a dark red pillow, but the piece itself is just loose and unattached to anything. I'm not sure why so many projects like this in my collection progressed so far and then weren't finished. They're all interesting though.
