One down!


Last night, I finished my first UFO for the year. This little stitchery was done sitting next to Dad's bed when he was in palliative care, back in 2008. I finished the stitching back then, but after Dad died, I put it away. Last weekend, out it came, and I felt I was ready to make a border and quilt it. Finished, it measures 11 1/2" x 13".
I am very happy with how it turned out. It has nice memories of lovely conversations with Mum and Dad at Dad's bedside. I'm going to buy one of those metal hangers with hearts, and hang it on my sewing room wall. :)

How cute. Yippee that you've finished one! When I joined, I didn't realize this was for all craft projects, not just quilts.

I have some items I should bring out and finish. One is a counted cross stitch picture I worked on after my parents died, and it's almost finished but I got sidetracked several years ago. I started it almost 20 years ago. I think now would be a good time to finish it and have it framed.

It's beautiful, Lindi, and such pretty and peaceful colours. I'm glad you felt ready to revisit this sad time, but now it holds positive memories for you. Di xx

Stitching heals a lot of wounds.
Will be nice to look at every day and have those memories.
