In my cleaning a rearranging I often find the remnants of unfinished projects. Some of them get tossed in the trash, but not all. Some are re-filed, because I have just not figured out how to finish them up or I am waiting to find the perfect thing to finish them or they need to be dismantled for supplies. It’s not that I’ve forgotten them, it’s just that I have moved on and not made it back.
Today I found a treasure that I really need to finish. I know why this project never made it to the end. This is from around 2 1/2 to 3 years ago, I was working on it before we lost our jobs and had to move and all that other awful stuff (no, I still don’t want to talk about it). I had every intention of finishing it, it was neatly tucked away in a labeled box with all the parts and pieces that I might need. There was also the vintage instruction booklet and original inspiration made for me by my Mother, vintage 1970’s. I would also like to note here that the purple striped fabric of the dog can also be seen in this Sun Bonnet Sue quilt. (I come from a long line of frugal hoarders.) This is my favorite page from the first one: Where is my tail and look inside. This is my favorite page from the second one, the one I helped her make: Hang the laundry and look inside (again) I love those baby ladybugs!
I know what I need to be working on this weekend, I need to get this ghost project put to rest!
