Oldest WIP Post for March 30

I did it!  I finally finished it.  Without further ado....


This is how far I was when I re-discovered the incomplete project tucked away in my project basket.  

One of the things that drew me to this pattern all those years ago as well as what held my interest are all the little motifs that one could pull out and stitch up all by themselves.   

                                     




 Sorry with the sideways view!  Think of it as exercise while on the internet!



I think another trip to my framer in Pitman is being penciled into my calendar.   I want to frame this up and put is in my sewing studio.   It will be a reminder to me to stick with the job until it is finished and reap the rewarding feeling of accomplishment when you are done as well as a reminder to never again have an 18 year project!

Congratulations, Robin!! As for 18-year projects, just think of this as fourth child. Except that you didn't have to clothe, feed, worry about this one driving or pay for its college tuition.

Congratulations! What a beautiful finish! Graph-It Arts Designs, a.k.a. Lynn Waters Busa was one of my early favorite designers. I've stitched up quite a few of her designs over the years and yours is a great example of why she was so popular! Sweet, beautiful colors, and full of details! Well done, Robin!
