From the "Way-Back Machine"

I found an embroidery project in my sewing room that is likely close to 20 years old. 

My hands have been giving me grief for the better part of a year and I haven't done any hand sewing at all.  I miss it!  I decided to see if my hands could manage an embroidery needle.  They can!

My eyes, however, are a different story.  I was in my 30s when I put this project away.  Even with my failing eyesight, I can still easily see 50 from where I'm sitting.  I hope eventually to figure out where to hold this hoop so that I can see to stitch this!

If I do find that embroidery is the handwork for me, I won't need to buy any projects.  I probably have 10 entire quilt kits waiting for me in my sewing room.  Apparently I had big embroidery plans 20 years ago!

Love it. I also have a hoard of embroidery projects, mostly vintage orphans that other people abandoned.
