WOYWW #413 - It's Finished

I finished my embroidery on Friday and posted it to Mum yesterday and she received it today and is overjoyed and completely surprised too.

So obviously this view (from my bed) is earlier in the week as I have the embroidery hanging up over the fireplace and a stretching on the go.

Pondering my next project, I emptied out the drawer under my bed of all the UFO's (unfinished objects) and you'll see there is a mountain of them!

I decided to stretch the "boat" embroidery which has been waiting patiently for 20yrs! So that is done now. I have had its "twin" on the wall for as long so will need to get this one framed similarly, or it might do it myself.

I made this card last week amongst all the embroidery.

And I have started another circular sampler type free form embroidery for this month.

So other than saying, I was a little premature about the medication as I'm having a blip with it this week, not fun, no idea what's happening or when it will stop, that's me for this week.

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

Hi BJ. Glad you got the embroidery finished - it looks great. I have a similar cupboard full of unfinished symphonies, too. One day maybe I'll get them all done.... You have some lovely pieces there. Love the one where the picture spills over onto the mat.
Take care. God bless.

Oh no, I was happy when you'd posted that the meds were helping. I'm sorry to hear that you're having to put up with the blip...blooming heck, if men had to suffer what we did, it would have been sorted out years ago..... Your embroideries are gorgeous, I'm not surprised that your mum loved it :-D

Sorry to hear the meds aren't helping as they should. I adore that boat embroidery, it is probably about time that it joined its mate on the wall. Good luck with the framing. Sarah #19

I think we all have loads of UFO's don't we. I have been trying to wade my way through mine. Your boat embroidery is just beautiful and I'm glad your Mum loved hers.
What a shame your meds are not as good as last week, things were looking so positive. Hope you feel more yourself soon.
Take care

you do have a lot of UFO's don't you - love all the ones you've been working on, and no wonder your mum was thrilled with hers. Take care, and hope it stops soon!! Helen #1

It takes so much talent along with patience to make such fine embroidered gifts. I envy you your patience. Your "Mum" must be fortunate to have such a thoughtful daughter.

Glad you got your embroidery done! Your UFO pile looks a lot like mine. I am determined to get some of them finished this year and some of those projects I have kitted up I plan to do. So many projects...so little time!

Lovely embroidery an art that is coming back into fashion. I also have lots of unfinished items stored away but every so often it is a great feeling to pick one up and finish it.

I love the boat embroidery, and how the embroidery on the frame seems to crawl right into the picture! The one you made for your mom is great as well - you are very talented! I'm sure whatever you choose will be a wonderful project. Thanks for sharing, Lindart #32
