BACK TO THE EMBROIDERY



This has been a long time in the making and I have just about had enough of it.

It just has a few last minute bit's of embroidery to add and it will be finished.

Then I can mount it on the card cover.

Has anyone else had a project that has gone on for too long? 

At one point I felt like throwing it away and starting again but glad that I didn't now its almost complete



I am at the beginning of another sample row, this hoop has been around a while as well.

The new row are daisies and I'm using wool instead of floss to give them a more 3 dimensional effect.

Will post more on these later.

  8. Yes, I know that feeling when you’re tired of a project. But once it’s finished the enthusiasm will return! Love the sampler .

  9. Bryony - it was these visual delights that attracted F to your blog when she first encountered it. We stand in awe of your skill, your eye for design, for colour and texture. It is joy and elation and sunshine and something uplifting. xxx Mr T

  10. Oh, I'm glad you didn't throw it away! I once bought a needlepoint kit and it sat around for AGES before I finally did it. But I did eventually finish it. And then I had it made into a pillow. And then I sold the pillow on eBay, which I regret!

    1. We've done that in the past Steve. Bought a kit to fit in the room and by the time its finished it didn't, lol. Tom has just finished one and it's gone in the bag with the other one he finished ages ago waiting for me to make them into cushions, who knows how long they will languish there, lol

  14. They are lively, well done Briony. Like anything crafty you really have to be in the mood.

  15. That is so pretty. I've had projects that take me forever and more times than not I get bored with them and never finish. I'm glad you didn't give up on this

  16. I like the brambles on the second piece of embroidery and I am glad you are in the mood to complete these projects.

  17. Both projects are beautiful, you have a talent for embroidery. I always have a project languishing in a bag somewhere that is unearthed when I have a declutter and I finish it.
