Flashback 2000

I’ve always taken a long time to finish projects. This Kitty Angel kit from Dimensions was started back when I was in high school, and it wasn’t finished until I was nearly done university. (And it took me years more to sew it into a pillow.) I was very intimidated by the ribbon embroidery, so I put off working on it. Thankfully, it turned out pretty well.

By 2000 I was finishing off my fourth year of university and beginning my fifth and final year. I had a good friend who had helped me through some tough times, so I stitched up Footprints from Jiffy for him as a thank you. (In retrospect, it could be seen as a bit sacrilegious, but I’m not a practising Christian so it never occurred to me that it might be viewed in that way. Thankfully, he liked it.)

I stitched this pillow just because it appealed to me. It sat on our bed for years, and to be totally honest, I have no idea where it is now. I always meant to take it apart and sew it up a little better, but I never got around to it. Maybe I should re-stitch it and place it in our new guest room.

    “our’s sons’s room” and a winking smiley? I’m guessing that this was a VERY good friend of your’s!

    2000 seems to have been the Year of Everyone Else getting my stitching, I only have one piece for myself, the rest were all gifts. Except for the Barn Owl which was a “never again” commission piece!
