While we were visiting my parents last week, my mom uncovered the following Craft o' My Youth:
Wow. Latch hook.
That tasty little piece of business is about 14 x 14 inches. When I saw it, I said, "Oh, I think I was going to make that into a pillow..." Moments later, my mom pulled out a Joann Fabrics bag with a bit of matching fabric in it. The back of the pillow!
This is how I know that the Craft Procrastination Habit runs deep within me -- an unfinished project from when I was 11. It's been sitting in that bench for 23 years!
(It will remain unfinished.)
The best part about the find might have been the Joann Fabrics bag -- check out the font and colors on this puppy. I guess we really are old enough for items from our youth to be "retro."
Right after I took these photos, I disposed of both of these items. I've been trying to get rid of excess junk for a few years and this little project definitely does not make the cut. I did take that fabric, though. Never know when you might need it! (Baby steps... baby steps...)
