Special find

Today I have been getting little hand work projects together to keep nervous hands busy.  Hubby goes in for surgery Wed and stay for about a week.  As I was looking for a specific fabric to cut out I found this old treasure.  I made myself a sewing case for hand work years ago(at least  10 yrs).  So I packed it with 2 new projects and one to finish.  This will take me to day 1 or maybe even day 2. I love the unusual and wacky art work and this is my first try with “messy thread” .  img_20180409_0711107239077362.jpgI think this is a BAD impression of Jackson Pollock.  It does measure 14×13 closed.

Do you have any of your older projects still? I can’t seem to get rid of my first attempts at things.  It is nice to see the “Oh not! not what I wanted, to the “Yes! I nailed it.” Or almost anyway.

Have a wonderful day.

  1. Yes I keep the very first quilt I made and looking back on it…well…yikes! I did redo the binding years ago so it did not look so scary 🙂
    That thread work and beading work on your early piece is amazing! The thread work does look Jackson Pollock like!
