WOW: WIPs On Wednesdays


It’s still raining. I won’t complain as it is much needed in my garden. The camellias have stated blooming, it’s a wonderful light spot in the garden at the moment. With rain on the glass and the goings on outside cold and shivery – the WIP that comes to my mind is this: The Carriage.
This is a tapestry I started 20 years ago. Yes, 20 years ago. I still haven’t finished it. It was stretched over a tapestry rack, but I have taken to brief stints of hoop work by the window.
This winter I won’t be crocheting, I will be trying to get this done. It’s one of those things you can’t rush. Alas, it’s also one of those WIPs you can no longer purchase matching thread colors for, so I am always looking for tones when I pass an embroidery shop.

I hope to finish it this winter, quilty WIPs notwithstanding.

  1. I am moving my sewing area, so my projects are put away. But once I get everything back to normal, I look forward to participating in your WIP Wednesdays.

  3. Your tapestry is amazing so far--definitely an heirloom in the making.

    I had a little giggle about linking a post that's titled, "If it's Tuesday, it must be ..." to your WIPs on Wednesday list. I do love the international nature of blogland.

  4. Wow, 20 years in the making. I'm starting to think I should've kept some of my teenage projects to finish them now - I never thought I'd get back to this sort of crafty stuff, but it always seems to go in cycles....
