Know how good it feels when you finally finish something you've been putting off? It feels incredible!
This project was two years in the making....not because I was actively working on it, but because I spent a lot of time ignoring it. It's a wedding record for my brother and his wife. I actually started stitching it when I found out that they were engaged. I did the main body rather quickly....and then I learned how to knit. It also doesn't help that I despise finishing work (regardless of the craft) and this sat in a sandwich bag for oh.....I don't even know how long! It was supposed to be a wedding present last May. Then I put it down to knit. The wedding came and went. I decided that it would make a lovely Christmas present, once I fixed a couple minor mistakes and initialed the piece. Then around Christmas....I couldn't FIND the dang thing!! Christmas came and went. Then I had a baby and well, nothing got done! I found the wedding record yesterday wedged between my two yarn organizers. I've finally washed it and it's drying in a towel in the kitchen right now. I figured it needed to be done NOW, so I didn't have a chance to lose it again. It's not initialed....and I don't care! And now it's finished just in time....for their first anniversary to have gone by. I'm calling it a first anniversary gift anyway!!
Pictures to come, as soon as it is framed.
