Well, it didn't actually take me two years to finish this embroidery if you only count the working time, but it did take me so long to stop procrastinating and get it done.
I started in the summer 2008 but lost interest after the fourth of July. So I put it away till last summer, when I discovered that I'd done a little more than half of the red parts in the wrong color red! I pulled out some of it, but got discouraged and put it away again.
This past weekend, I decided to try to get it finished up. I cut the wrong color stitches instead of pulling them out, which sped up the process considerably. (Don't ask me why I didn't do that in the first place!)
So, now it's done, and I can get it sewn. The finished project is a wallhanging. One of a series of holiday/seasonal ones from kits that I bought at a Ben Franklin store that we stopped at on the drive from AZ to I'LL when we moved here. Maybe this year, I'll get them all finished...
Though I think we all know better than that. The power of my procrastination combined with my project ADD is just too much.
