Like most stitchers, I have a box full of not-quite-finished projects. We all have them - projects that we've finished stitching but haven't framed or made into anything.
With me, there's the pile that I will get framed at some point, like the Four Queens, Fairy Idyll, Edith Wolford. I just don't currently have the funds to do so, but I'll catch up at some point.
Then there's all the other pieces that I no doubt stitched with some purpose, but never did anything with them other than store for a later time. I thought I'd share some, so I'm starting a "Land of Not-Quite-Finished" series. Some of them I will perhaps do something with; others will never do anything but sit in the box until I give them away or toss them out.
I'll start with this lovely teacup:
This is the first piece that I ever completed on evenweave as opposed to Aida, circa 1995-ish. I'd tried a project on linen previously and has nothing but problems with it and gave it up. Some time after that I decided to do a small project and just muscle through it, hence this teacup. It was really what I needed to do; I've been stitching on evenweaves/linens ever since.
