I first started this blog due to "popular demand" for me to to share my cooking and quilting results in blog form as it was easier for friends and people who know me to see what I'm up to, especially compared to just an image hosting site. Now I blog because I enjoy sharing what I do and hope that I do in some way inspire people to try new things out as well.
These are the UFOs I have lying around awaiting my attention but I haven't managed to finish yet. All of these projects were part of my Finish It in 2013 project. List is in no particular order.
2 sleeping bunnies
A Priscilla babyland embroidery - about half done but I *so* hate doing 1/4 and 3/4 cross stitches
Dog embroidery (portrait)
Made from a photo years ago by a company - about 1/5th done.
Dog embroidery (standing)
Made from a photo years ago by a company - barely started.
Autumn leaves needle book WIP
Pattern is from the DMC website. Embroidery is 1/2 finished.
Sagittarius star sign
Pattern/kit by Lanarte. I had this as a UFO earlier this year but i've not worked on it for some months so am classing it as a UFO again. Only have to do the border and some of the corners and the backstitching.
In 2013 joined in with the Take A Stitch Tuesday project where every Tuesday (or almost every Tuesday) a wonderful lady shows how different embroidery stitches are done. Since I wanted to expand my stitch knowledge this seemed like a good thing for me to join in with and hopefully it will be fun to do. One of my many UFO's was a partially finished frame that I couldn't remember what I had started it for. I realised that this would make the perfect frame for me to try and do all the TAST stitches in, hopefully also creating a pretty picture in the process.
