It Took Like a Year!

Felt like it anyway. This embroidery piece seems to have been picked up and put down more times than I can count! It got to the point that I almost just gave up. I am not sure why exactly. Maybe I was just playing during the wrong times. Like soccer practice when it got too windy & I couldn't see past my hair blowing in my face. Or a craft show that actually picked up too much to be doing such work (which was a good thing). But whatever the reason...it's done!

Well...almost. As I looked at it again, I decided to make a small change, an addition really. For each girls hair I am going to sew on a piece of scrap fabric for their hair scrunchie thingies. Only the center one has anything now. Somehow I totally skipped over the other 2 :P

And then it will become a pillow. That is what the fabric framing it in the pic is. I hope to complete it next week. I have too much on my plate right now to start. I'll show you what later, but here's one of the WIPS...it's going to be a backpack...

It's so cute, and I have soooo many of these half finished projects. It's either a case of ADD, the Gemini in me or just can't help myself from starting something new. I look forward to the finish on both pieces.
