Finish or Fling? - Patchwork Garden

 

I think I started this in 1998, when I moved back North and lived with my parents for a while. The design is by Elaine Cosier and was published in Cross Stitch Collection. It features a number of specialty stitches.

Pros:
  • Stitched on linen
  • Specialty stitches

Cons:
  • I've lost the chart - that's a pretty big one!
  • Don't like the colours I've chosen

So - Finish or Fling?

Verdict: Fling. Or at least, recycle the linen.

I saw an interesting post recently ... can't remember where ... about taking such pieces and [gasp] cutting them up and then sewing them together again, crazy quilt fashion, to make small pillows, sachets, pin cushions or other oddments. Just something for your consideration!

Oh, that's such a shame you lost the chart, as it's a really pretty design. I agree with Riona, perhaps cut up what you've done for a pillow or similar.

Shame you lost the chart - it's very pretty! Maybe you should put out a request to see if anyone has it and is willing to lend/give it to you.

Well, now that's a good reason to fling. No pattern LOL.

Oh, I love your work. I can't get enough of needlework and my art work. All of these wonderful blogs like yours are such and inspiration. I think my biggest accomplishment was finishing Drawn Threads piece 'Sanctuary".
Thanks for your inspiration. Hop on over to my blog sometime and take a peek.
