Found Treasures

Today only cleaning was done.  Boring...DH was wonderful during my grunt work.  He went out and got lunch and ordered pizza for dinner, he knows me so well.  Once I get started I'm like the energizer bunny, I'll keep going, and going!  While going through a pile of paper's I found two Candelwicking kits started, but never finished.
This Teddy Bear Pillow Kit is 80% finished.  The copy right for this kit is 1983, I was in my 20's when I started it, and it looks like I didn't read the directions because it looks like I used all 6 strands of embroidery floss.  Oh well, I want to finish this and maybe use it in the center of a quilt.  It really is cute.
This Wolf kit was a Christmas gift from my brother in Law, I can't find a copy right date, but he must have given it to me in the late 90's, early 2000's.  Only a small portion is finished, but I love it, and want to get started finishing it.  So even though I really didn't want to clean today it turned out to be a good thing.  I now have some "hand work" projects to work on during B meetings and Guild meetings.  I have a hugh bag of trash going out of the house, some clothe's to donate, lots of clean clothe's to wear, and quite a bit less dust floating around, and found treasures that made it all worth my "blood, sweat, and tears".  Tomorrow is a new day, and I feel certain that sewing is in my future.  So until next time, happy sewing to you all!
