I started this towel years ago. Every now and then I pick it up and do a little on it. There is some pretty scruffy stitching on it from when I was new to embroidery. One day it will be finished and i probably won't want to use it after working on it for so long! Anyone have a really ancient WIP they revisit every now and then?


  1. Oh wow this just gave me a really cute idea. I have a set of towels that would really look cute with a mushroom pattern. :) This one looks really adorb, by the way.
    I am one of those people who does like 100 different hobbies, and I rotate between them pretty regularly. Leave the project aside for a while and come back in a few weeks/months/years... lol.

  2. Beautifull your work.
    Yes I have a lot of unfinished products in my I am wondering how old are they?? :P

  3. Jamie- hope your mushroom towel is finished faster than mine!
    Things in life- Thankyou! I find starting new projects much more exciting than finishing old ones but am making a real effort to finish a few things off before I run out of craft storage space!

  4. First of all, I love this! Do you plan on outlining the top of that mushroom in red, or is the whole piece going to be stitched in ecru?

    I've carried around a latch hook rug of a holstein cow since I was in the fifth grade. The kicker is that it's 90% done!

  5. The top will be in red... if I ever get round to it, that is!
    Do you plan on finishing your rug? Race you to the finish!

  6. That wouldn't be fair, I have a big head start!

    I think I'll just frame it and hang it up unfinished!

  7. I just finished a pair of pillowcases I worked on over two years! Since I always like to be working on something while I'm on the couch they were my back-up project. Whenever I found myself without a quilt to quilt or a special gift to finish I'd pull them out and plug away. Dishtowels are another great back-up project and this one looks adorable!

  8. Thanks Molly, it's always good to have a back-up project!


I'd love to hear from you
