Let’s face it…this pandemic has us doing tasks that we’ve all long ignored. Sheltering in place has people cleaning out their closets and garages, while others are getting creative in the kitchen, cooking up new recipes. There are some folks that are plowing through piles of books that have been on their, “must read,” list for years. As for me, I’ve been quilting.
Although I’ve been a sewer all of my life, I only started quilting about 10 years ago…a newbie by any quilter’s standards. Even so, like every quilter, I have amassed more than a few UFOs, (Unfinished objects,) and WIPs, (works in progress,) WISPs, (Works In Slow Progress,) and even a few WHIMMs, (Works Hidden In My Mind.) I figure that now is as good as a time as any to tackle some of them.
Yesterday, I finished one of my oldest WISPs…a traditional, pine tree pattern in various shades of green, on a white background, with rusty, red binding. I can’t tell you what year I started it, (I’m guessing around 2013,) but I can tell you what a relief it is to finally have it done, lumps, bumps, mistakes and all.
