Christmas Treasures

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.

    I know the feeling. I have a project from, well never mind how long and it is almost finished…almost. Your Christmas Treasures looks pretty as is.

    I totally agree…if you no longer love it, set it free….my sister and I often trade works in progress. We only see each other twice a year, but often call and talk about our stitching. It is beautiful as is, and will make a beautiful pillow.

    I agree about calling something done. What you have finished will make a really cute pillow.
