This is an old Irish proverb linen that I began working on. Unfortunately, I did not complete this project. It came from a vintage kit that I purchased on Ebay.
Maybe you can relate, I became frustrated with the quality of my work. It did not meet my expectations. I did not properly prepare for the project. I should have used a slate frame but I did not take the time to properly prepare, I regret.
I tend to jump into projects with much gusto but with minimal preparation. If you believe in Astrology, it could be something to do with my Aries sun sign. I don’t put much stock into those things but find them to be both fun and entertaining, nonetheless.
I admit, do love the colors. The rich blues, greens and yellows of my own choosing. If I ever get back to this project, I will pull the stitches on the flower to the left. As you can see, it is very poorly stitched in comparison to the one on the right.
I’m no happy with the full work that I did on this, overall. It looks to lumpy for my liking. My stitching continues to improve, slowly but surely. This was stitched more than one year ago.
