Sometimes you’ve just got to call something done, even if it isn’t totally done.
I’ve been working on Victoria Sampler’s Christmas Treasures since 2008. But, to be honest, I fell out of love with it pretty quickly. I had purchased the lovely box that was on the cover of the chart, so I felt like I had to finish it. But I didn’t…
I dug out the project the other day and took it to a stitching night. There, with the encouragement of some of the ladies present, I decided to finish up a couple of motifs, and then call it done. I’ll be finishing it into a small pillow (eventually), and I’ll be using the lovely box for Jeanette Douglas’ Strawberry Stitches instead.
I think sometimes you need to just call something done and move on, rather than let it hang around in your workbasket (and mind) for years and years.
