Way back in July of last year, I happy danced my way to you with this Quaker Row sampler. I stitched it up and for some reason, it sat unnoticed. This past week when I discovered it while sorting out things dumped in a room upstairs when we moved in a year ago. I am going to create a second guest room in this space. I have no idea how I forgot about this until now. I even had the fabrics I was considering to use with it for the framing set aside with it. I choose the fabric and Jos helped me get it into the frame. In my bid to use what I have, I used a frame that had a poster in it that I was no longer using.
I am really glad that I have a first stitched finished piece for this year. I have decided to give myself what I am calling my '2 for 1' challenge. I have to finish two UFOs before I can start a new project. I have finished two UFOs already this year and my new project is a gift I am making which I cannot share for a little while. I am also working on a bigger quilt UFO at the moment. It is going well and I hope to share it soon. I am also grabbing a crochet UFO tonight to get busy with. It will be fun to keep a quilt, stitching, crochet and bobbinlace UFO going side by side. I work on things I am in the mood for unless it is a gift that has to be finished so keeping the various things going works for me.
Anyone else out there in blogland working on clearing out their UFOs this year?
