Is ten years too long of a time to finish a project? Yes, ten years! I know it has been ten years because it was started before my son was married. Silly thing is all I had left to do was finish the doily. I ran across this while I was looking for another UFO. As you can imagine the threads were all wadded up but fortunately I had put them onto a card and marked the colors.
I love Sandy Lynam Clough's art and decided it was time to work on this.
I had changed the word "Mother" to "Eyberg" (my last name) and decided I won't complete the framed edges. I don't know what I will do with this for sure, but It will likely be incorporated into a CQ block at some point (soon I hope) so the outer edges likely won't be needed. That's my story anyway. For now I am calling it finished.
The doily is metallic gold and the cup has metallic gold on the rim. The heart pendant is framed with gold and the letters and handle also have touches of metallic. It is difficult to photograph the sparkle of metallics but it really sets this piece off and gives it dimension.
What is the longest amount of time it has taken you to finish a project? I have also been working on my bead journal project and will be ready to share it soon.
