Craft

Yikes!

I feel almost as if I should just post the picture, because I’m not sure words can express how pleased I am to have finished stitching this. The final skein of yarn rode to my rescue yesterday afternoon, I was pleased to find that it blended in well with the old, and it took less than an hour to do the last little bit. Shall we just savour that? After more than ten years as an “active” project, I had run out of wool less than one hour from completion!

The world is now my oyster. I have no projects on the needles and can please myself as to what I cast on next. Possibilities crowd around me in a manner which seems to indicate that they haven’t completely grasped the concept of social distancing. In other words, I have no idea what I want to do craft-wise and I’m unlikely to be casting anything on until I come to some kind of decision about what it should be.

This canvas, however, is a massive achievement and definitely counts as the peak of the week.

    1. Thank you so much. I’m really pleased with it, although I do feel until it’s actually the front of a cushion it’s not really achieving its objective in life. Let’s see how many years it takes me to get that part of the project done!

  1. Well done! That is beautiful. Now if it was mine I’d buy a canvas picture, stretch it over that and hang it on the wall, I’d want to look at it and admire it every day but never have anyone lean against it or crease it!! 10 years deserves respect!

    1. I am incredibly pleased with the result, all the more so since when I picked this project up again last year it was in the belief that it was never going to be finished. Alex has now put the thought in my head that I can use it as a piece of art rather than a soft furnishing and that is very appealing.
