So I've sat here the last few days, watching everyone list their UFO's (un finished objects) and join in with Rhonda and her Finish-along, and I must admit I've felt rather smug about not really having any UFO's as mine were really just one or two WIP's (work in progress)... I've looked at others lists, wished them luck and thought "phew, glad I dont have a UFO pile"...
Then I had a bit of a
pull half the shelves apart looking for something re-organisation in the sewing cupboard and, well, I'm not feeling quite so smug any more... quite the opposite in fact. *I hang my head in shame*
|Half done dresden...|
|5" solid charms|
|A half done paper pieced star|
This was a dual purpose item. A trial effort for Laura's October Stars bee, done in my bee month fabrics since I havent actually made my own bee blocks yet...
I gave up half way and decided to do something else for Laura, and I still havent done my own bee blocks so thats what this represents. My own bee blocks! (Still not entirely sure about this one, but I will finish it.)
|Not-so-Hidden Stars Quilt top|
This quilt has been sitting on me on the sofa all winter. Despite never being all that excited by it in the making, I really love it now. It is officially my most used quilt. (By me that is, I do hope the one's I've given away are also being used by their recipients!) It is, however, still in its basted form... I started FMQ'ing around the outside edges and got about 3/4 of the way round before I got entirely fed up. I then took it to the sofa with a lovely perle cotton. It has 2 stars hand quilted in perle.
It would be rather nice to actually get this one finished so that I can give it a good wash if nothing else... And to see what it feels like to snuggle up in without basting pins...
I did find one or two other UFO's but I'm not owning up to them yet, thats more than enough for the first quarter, wouldnt you say Rhonda?! I hereby submit these for Rhondas Finish-along, to be completed in the first quarter. I hereby stop hanging my head and say "me too me too can I play?!"
