So, first, the dishtowel ( I still need to finish it):
|my first woven piece!|
What I am the most proud of is that I went from these bumpy edges:
Much better, no? I can't wait to start all over again on my loom.
Now, the embroidered piece...I bought this in Prague back in ...1999...I also bought the thread, and I even started it then. And then I stopped for a few years...and I went back to it...and stopped again...and then decided that that was ridiculous! (I also needed something very quickly for my mum!)
I really like it because it is simple and elegant.
It's not the oldest thing I started and finished late. I still have a monster Kalocsai multicoloured tablecloth I bought in Budapest in 1992...I really don't seem to be able to finish that one. I get sick of it every time I go back to it, to the point where I almost decided once to cut it in 4 pieces, so I could at least finish one. I didn't do it, and it is still waiting for me to get back to it. I did some embroidery not long ago for the present of an expecting colleague, and it was not too bad. I think I will feel like going back to this one soon.
So many things to do, so little time...
