Do you remember your first piece of needlework? Do you still have it or is it long gone?
I still have my first piece I ever made. Granted, I had to pull it out of a box in my closet to take a picture for this post, but I still have it. :)
It is a small needlepoint pillow, measuring about 5 inches square, that I stitched when I was about 6-years-old, so about 35 years ago. I remember sitting with my dad at the table designing it. We had the piece of canvas and quilting markers. He colored off the design on the canvas for me as I told him where I wanted the colors and what shapes I wanted them to be. If I remember correctly, the colors of yarn I had to choose from were what my mom had leftover from a previous project(s).
I remember being so proud of it when I was finished. Now I look at it and chuckle thinking how elementary it looks and all the mistakes I made, lol! It's all OK though, because this one little piece is what started my passion for stitching that has stuck with me through the years and continues to grow as I age.
Feel free to share what your first piece was in the comments section. I'd love to hear about them!
