Now and again I have to do it; go through those bits and pieces that I manage to collect and do an op-shop run. Mostly its magazines and those clothes I'm never going to be slim enough to wear again, and then there are the just-cant-bear-to-part-with items. What about this? Every year it gets turned out, sighed over and put back again. Its the first piece of embroidery I ever did when I was six years old - a very very long time ago. Mum had taken us to see the new animated, Walt Disney film Bambi and these embroidery sets were on sale as a souvenir. Mum ruled a straight line with a pencil on another piece of cloth and showed me how to do stem stitch then, when she was happy with my efforts she loaded up my needle with the proper colours and here is the result. Of course it didn't get finished (nothing much has changed) and she kept it for the rest of her life. I acquired it some years back. So, what do I do with it? The man of the house says "Frame it and put it on the wall." I'm very tempted to finish it; it might even find its way into the Guiness Book of Records - a piece of embroidery that took over half a century to complete. Lol. Bye the way. I have managed to finish a few projects since I started this one. A very noisy weather change has just blown up so I'd better go and get the washing in. Hope you all have a lovely weekend. Bye for now until next time.
