Just Goofing

What happens when one goes looking through one's stash?  One finds stuff that she forgot that she had.  Then she has to play with it for a while.  That's what happened to me. I found a needlepoint canvas that I bought in Boston on a trip to visit son#2 a few years ago.  It had some of the threads right there with it.  So I put in a couple of threads in the canvas to see how it looked.

I stitched on my BAP for a while.  I finally completed the first page by filling in all those pesky little stitches scattered throughout.  Then I started the second page.

 I even covered up a couple of stains that were on the linen.  That poor piece of linen has been laying about for quite a while.  I'll show you the whole piece of linen so you can see how very little I have done and what a huge project this is.

  I hope to finish this before I die.  In twenty years - or more.

Then because I wanted a small thing to show you, I started that little French pattern I got on the internet.  I discovered that I bought the wrong pattern.  I meant to buy the one with the bunny that looks a lot like this one.

I don't know what semis means in French.  Maybe it means annuals.  Anyway, I'm going to leave out the tag part and put a little violet top on that vine on the right. What should I make it into?  I'll have to think on that.  It could be very cute.
