Irony

Today's photo is one taken during the earlier stages of this project.

Sometimes, a kit doesn't include everything you need to finish; despite what the packaging says...
I ran out of the tapestry wool needed for the background on this stitchery. The amount needed to finish is about exactly the amount I had stitched in when I took this photo. There's your irony.
Since I purchased this kit for one-tenth the original retail price from a local thrift store, I have no idea when it was manufactured or if I can find the same colour still in stock somewhere so I can finish the project. I thought I was being so clever buying a kit...

  1. I have always admired needlepoint but have never been able to get into it. Guess that is why it always looks so pretty to me. Your project looks great.

  2. Oh no Katherine, how annoying is that. I can't offer any advice I am afraid. x
