If nothing else, joining etsy has certainly motivated me to establish some order amongst my sewing projects and paraphernalia. And believe me it needed it! I pieced this little patchwork over a year ago with great plans to make a crazy quilt pincushion out of it. Somehow it got mislaid with a collection of fabrics for some other creation. I looked high and low for it last spring as I wanted a small handwork project to take with me while out and about. Then several days ago, I decided to clear out a drawer in my sewing hutch to use as storage for the items I'd listed for sale. There it was! On the very bottom of a pile of fabric leftovers from a wedding quilt I made last August. When I cleared those remnants off my cutting table I must have scooped this piece up along with it and then shoved them all in the drawer together.
What an exciting moment it was to rediscover it. Unfortunately I still had a very busy weekend filled with errands and much overdo yard work ahead of me. It wasn't until this afternoon that I finally sat down with a cup of tea and my needle to begin playing with some embroidery stitches. What fun!
