I do recall buying the Granny's Attic by Sue Hillis book while on vacation in the midwest, and I am quite sure that I started it about...brace yourself as it seems unreal...twenty years ago! Can that be? I think so.
So the book I bought in that quaint midwestern town was Granny's Attic by Sue Hillis. I added a few Sam Hawkins patterns to the project, as the finished afghan contains twenty squares. I opted to use these additional patterns instead of repeating Sue Hillis' ten patterns. I changed colors in the Sam Hawkins patterns to make them all in the same color family. The colors are now appearing very much like an homage to the 90's. I'm not happy about it, but that's how it is with style when you spend almost half your life on a project. Wow, that sounds hopeless. You'd think I were building or creating something stupendous to have it take that much time. (Let's forget the years it has spent in a craft chest of drawers!)
Here are the Sue Hillis patterns I've placed on the project:
Here are the patterns I've added from the book called Sam Hawkins 501 Favorite Crosstitch Designs:
Do you have any old projects? How do you motivate yourself to finish them? Please send me some hints.
Thanks for stopping by today!
