I was sorting through some needlework bins today and came across a few old projects that are finished, but not quite finished. Here's what I found:
A Mary Engelbreit counted cross stitch design. Love the colors. I think I made this back in 1992. It needs to be made into a pillow or picture or something.
This is a small counted cross stitch hatbox - maybe 3" square. This needs to be made into something too - I was thinking a pin cushion.
How about this redwork girl in a bonnet that I did in pink - the stitching is all done. Maybe she would make a nice pillow.
Here's an embroidered square that has been stitched and quilted - but that's as far as it got. Look at those tiny quilting stitches! All by hand - no machine here!
And last, but not least, one of my first quilts. That's me holding up the quilt. :) I must have made this one in the early 1980's. The quilting fabric selection was not very good at that time. All of these dresden plates were stitched and appliqued by hand. I even stitched all the squares together by hand. Take a close at the back.
This is the design I had planned to quilt on the blank squares. I know why I never finished this quilt - Y-U-K!
