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.
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!
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?
