Pin It Daisychain Embroidery Sampler! This, my friends, is the definition of crafting. It's when you take on a project simply for the joy of making.... and you finish it 5 years later.
I'm sure many of you are like this with quilting. And it may be discouraging to watch here as I finish quilt after quilt throughout the year. But here's the difference... designing and making quilts is my job. "Making" for your work and "making" for yourself are completely different.
And when it comes to making things solely for myself, I am in the same boat with the rest of you. It takes me years to finish!
The baby-in-my-belly who I started making this for will be starting kindergarten this fall. Whoops. He (who I was convinced was a girl) does not seem to want this sweet little pastel ABC wall hanging in his Lego landmine, Minion infested, monster truck climbing bedroom that he shares with one of his older brothers. (I mean, come on, he's the youngest of 3 boys. And although he's the most-happy-go-lucky, sing to himself, mama's helper I know, he still will live his life trying not to be the baby and keeping up with 2 big brothers.)
......sigh...... I guess that means I'll have to keep this for myself........ I am devastated, as you can imagine.
And would you believe, it happens to match perfectly with my sewing studio? :)
