Finding a half finished and abandoned craft project always makes me so sad…
I always wonder what happened? Did the crafter just get bored? Or did someone’s mother get old, and in the process of sorting their stuff out, a son or daughter decided to donate a half completed project?
I always feel that there is a tragedy there.
My newest rescue
So this is my newest rescue. I found this project, all in sad woollen browns, nicely framed up on stretcher bars with a needle rusting in the cloth.
The colours used were so amazingly dull that I feel that it is very possible that the colour palette simply bored the crafter into a stupor. I didn’t remove any of the stitches, I am just continuing on in my own way.
I like to think that this canvas heaved a great sigh of relief since being rescued from my local thrift shop by a caring needlewoman such as myself. 😉
WIPs On The Go
Of course, I have plenty of embroidery projects on the go already. I really didn’t need another one! I like to work on whatever interests me for a while and then change every so often. It keeps everything fresh and there is always a plethora of projects to choose from. Somehow it all gets done eventually.
Here is a little gallery of my stitching projects in progress:
So, what WIPs do you have on the go? Remember, there are no such thing as UFOs (Unfinished Objects) only WIPs (Works in Progress!)
Giving up on the fear of not finishing everything ‘promptly’ enough, and learning to be all about the process and not the product, has been a big part of discovering the Zen of String for me.
Lots of love from Winnipeg,
