Could someone please explain to me why I stopped working on this lovely thing?
When I am this close to having it look like this?
The design is by Jane Timmers, who taught classes for some beautiful smalls 25 or so years ago. I understand she bought a needlepoint shop in the Atlanta area, and no longer traveled to teach after that. I found this in one of my older bins that I was excavating, mainly to see what I had stored in it.
It's truly like an archaeological dig. I never know what treasures are going to appear.
And, needless to say, I have brought this downstairs to work on sooner rather than later.
