Another UFO finished (not quilty!!)
Today I received a phone call from the picture framers that my cross stitch of 'Little Women' was finished. I have been working on this for quite some time - like 3 years!!! When I retrieved it from the 'UFO' bin all I had to do was the backstitching. While I had some time sitting down with my foot up (doctor's orders!!) I finished the stitching then took it to the framers. I think they did a fabulous job and love the shape of the mat surrounding the stitching.
My UFO/WIPs are still overhanging the sides of the tub.
On the top you can see my hexagon quilt - I'm about 3/4 of the way through hand quilting this - I'm quilting around every hexagon. Stupid I know.
Tomorrow I'm off to my local guild - Geelong Quilting Guild for our November meeting - another chance to do some hand sewing on a UFO. Slowly but surely I'm making my way through that tub.
