An Oldie but Goody

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?
