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.
And it is ... DONE! DONE! STICK A FORK IN ME, IT'S DONE!
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.
