    These are a few things from my stacks and stacks of finished bits of handwork. Eventually I will figure out what to do with all these random pieces, but for now they are stuffed in a overfilled shoebox. I'm not sure how many more I can shove in!

    Blackwork maze. One of four.

    Wonderful work! Thanks for sharing these. If there are more, please do post them. I love doing hand work and I always have several projects going at once.

    Cheers, Ellena

    I like the blackwork sampler, and the Hardanger. You can use that straight away, and that would leave a bit more room in the shoe box. The blackwork could be hemmed for a small table centre. You could have it framed, or get one of those trays designed to hold pieces of handwork. That would display it and be a useful item at the same time. The long strip could be hung up on the wall as a Bell Pull. I have one beside my fire. Of course, it doesn't function, but it's left over from the tradition that you pulled it, a bell rang below stairs, and a maid instantly appeared. Oh for that to happen in my house! Don't just put everything back in that shoe box, start using some of your lovely pieces.

    Beautiful work! I was given my first flour sack when I was 7 and my Nan (grandma to Newfoundlanders) had used one of her transfers on it. I was hooked. Over the years I have done needlepoint, embroidery, crewel, counted cross-stitch and now I am doing a lot of applique work. There's nothing like having a needle in your hand creating something beautiful from something very ordinary!

    Your work is gorgeous. I hope there's some kept for future generations to enjoy!

    These are beautiful and if your shoebox is too stuffed I'd be more than willing to sacrifice space by sending some my way! :D
