A few weeks ago I was digging through a drawer in my needlepoint room looking for God knows what, probably stretcher bars and I stumbled upon a little ornament that I stitched over 25 years ago. It was all done in wool and Continental. Gasp!!!!! We all start somewhere. LOL!
It just came back from the finisher the other day and I couldn’t have loved this piece more. Our finishers are fantastic!
I know we all have finished pieces hiding in a drawer that we don’t know what to do with. It’s so nice to see these oldies finished. They are a part of my progression as a stitcher. So, if you look back at old pieces and think “Oh my God . . .I can’t believe how I used to stitch” that just means that you’ve gotten a lot better. And isn’t that what we all strive to do?
