Most stitchers (and quilters, and crafty people in general) I know have what we fondly refer to as WIPs, or works-in-progress.
It seems to come with the territory. We get all inspired, and start some new and exciting project, and somewhere between that glorious start and an even more glorious finish, our interest wanes. Or we get sidetracked with life. Or (shock horror) some even newer and more exciting project comes along and we abandon the original project....cough cough.
I may have talked about this before? LOL...I am somewhat of an expert on the subject, actually ;)
I've recently rediscovered a WIP that has me...well...motivated! It dates back to when I was a young Mum, all excited to stitch her precious first born baby his very own wool-embroidered blanket.
And excited I was. The minute I spied the photo in my hot-off-the-press copy of Inspirations magazine (Issue Number 18) I mail ordered the kit...long before the days of computers and online shopping!
Funnily enough, the wool I had substituted had been discontinued several years ago, but an extensive online search had me on the trail!
And that precious first born baby?
Well, the blanket may just cover up to his knees on a chilly Winters night! And his face in the photo is, coincidentally, an accurate portrayal of his face when I told him I was embroidering a Woolly Sheep blanket for him...LOL!
