Another start….but this one is for me!!

DSCF8454

Have you ever had a project that you were dying to start but other commitments kept getting in the way? first off was Uni to get my Diploma, for two years this project was my carrot on a stick to get me through all those assignments, evaluations etc…. but you know what it’s been just over another two years since I finished my course and I hadn’t even opened one, not one of these stitcheries due to other commitments! But this year 2015 is the year I’m making something just for me and this project is first off the list Rosalie Quinlan’s “Scandinavian Roses” BOM. I know this one will be a long term project which for me I’ll struggle with as I’m so used to doing quick/mini projects so I know I’ll have to pace myself and remind myself (constantly) that it’s ok if it takes me a year or two or three to get this one finished……..Wish me luck as I embark on an adventure of a lifetime and I’ll be posting progress photo’s when and if I get some stitching done over the next year or two while working on other projects because anyone who knows me well will know I can’t just work on one thing at a time LOLSmile

Barb it's a gorgeous project & I'm sure you'll make a stunning one...
I hope you enjoy the challenge of a long-term WIP...
I seem to be the other way these days - I used to do mostly quick/short things & only have one or two long terms in progress, now I am quite the opposite...

Oh it will be lovely for you to work on something beautiful for yourself :) I struggle with long-term projects myself, so best of luck with staying motivated :)

Enjoy your stitching, Barb. It will be lovely in the end.

BUT... it will be sooo worth the effort Barb. It's a beauty! xox

Susan said...

I'm sure it will be beautiful, and it will be finished. I often find that long term projects are long in the deciding and waiting to start phase too.......it's like a test to see if I have the staying power. I'm sure you will love every red stitch of this project, and we will enjoy seeing it.
