Over the years, all of the pillows were lost or thrown away. I don't know, really what happened to them , but I missed doing the needle work. So, knowing that I am going to be having surgery sometime soon and wanting to take needlepoint back up, I have been on the hunt for an old pattern. I was hoping to find one at auction or at a thrift store, because all of the ones I found online, were pretty pricey. Then I got lucky and got this one off of Ebay for $7.50.
It was still in its sealed package (I of course immediately tore into it) and ready for me to get working on it. I hunted for the embroidery hoop that was in a box lot I picked up at auction last year. It was nowhere to be found, so I headed off to the fabric store and picked one up.
Then apparently I got lazy, because I tossed them into a basket on this stack of trunks,
and there it sits. (It's been a month now). Hmmmm, I think it might be time for me to tackle it. I know once I get started, I'll really enjoy doing it. I just have this problem of procrastination. I know, we've talked about this little problem before, but I figured if I announced my project to the world, it would give me the incentive to get started on it. I do hate embarrassing myself. (No I don't, I do it all the time).
Anyway, I want to start it before I go in for surgery so I think I will take it out and see just how complicated it is. Wish me luck. I'll let you know when I get it done. Oh yeah, and about that apron I started making for myself two months ago.................................................
