Not One, But Three!

You thought I'd given up, didn't you? But I'm busy here, in my little corner, stitching away! I have [shamefacedly hangs head] been working on some projects that weren't even a gleam in my eye this time last year, but I'm still trying to discipline myself to finish those UFOs.

Here are a couple of recent triumphs.

Exhibit A:

This is a little wall hanging/tabletopper I pieced at the turn of the century! I had already machine stitched-in-the-ditch, so all I needed to do was a little hand quilting in the border, zap on the binding, and Voila! Another UFO bites the dust!

Exhibit B:

I started this sewing machine cover at least six or seven years ago. A friend had sent me the embroidered panel, along with the pattern. But somehow it stalled, and was unearthed on a recent archeological dig in the nether regions of the closet. And I wondered why I hadn't finished it? Got bored with it I guess....But I'm much more mature now, so I got down to business and finished the binding, which was all it needed. Now, it's performing duties as a dust cover for my machine, when it's not in use. Which, admittedly, is not often.

And lastly, exhibit C:

This might not qualify as "finished", since it is only one of a set of four place mats, started sometime last year. The other three are in various stages of development. This one was finished except for the binding, a matter of half an hour's work.

So there! What have the rest of you been up to?

3rd Quarter gone!

Well, there goes the 3rd quarter! How much did you achieve?

I managed to start a few new things, but no WIPs or UFOs were done! Congratulations those who did cross things off.

The usual draw was made for a winner - each finished UFO getting an entry. The winner is Sooziii (Christening Gown entry)! Congrats, Sooziii!

As soon as I work out what you have won, I will post it off to you. :)

BTW, Blessed, I still don't have your addy to send your prize off.

Good luck with the Final quarter, everyone! Don't let all those Christmas projects get in the way of at least finishing one thing!
