The World's Oldest WIP

One of my current projects is the decluttering of the house. And a major thorn in my side has been my sewing room. 

Yea. I won't post a picture ...yet. But I am making progress. Garbage has been going out. Decisions were made. Things went to the thrift store. 

I have been finding WIP's. Lots of WIP's. You know. Works In Progress. Those projects that were started and never finished. 

Enter this pillow. I embroidered it 40 years ago!! Forty!! 

I remember what a fun project it was. 

Candlewicking and so many embroidery stitches. I loved it. 

So why did I toss it into a tote and left it there for 40 years??? Ok ... maybe because I didn't know what I wanted to do with the back. 

I had run across a piece of vintage pillow ticking ... and BINGO! It was going to work!

So I quickly stitched that together and stuffed it. 


Sorry .... I shouldn't have shouted. 😔

Now to get back to my knitting so it won't be an ancient WIP! 

Hopefully, next week I will do the sewing room reveal. Maybe. Organizing that could easily become the World's Oldest WIP.

The service and personal attention we received from Mr Pedro was exceptional and beyond what we were expecting! His knowledge of the local and national market and his commitment in finding us the best rate helped us in our search for our dream home. As first time home buyers everything was new to us and the most important thing we wanted was someone we could trust. He was there for us every step of the way. I'm glad we chose his services and would recommend Mr Pedro to anyone buying a home or expanding his / her business with an affordable loan rate in return.”
