Some of them have been sitting around since 1997!! We are required to keep 7 years worth of records, but all the 36 boxes were older than that!!

Good morning Everyone!!
I am happy to report I have finished the following UFO's:
1: Mended my old tattered quilt, finally!
2: Finished making my two pincusions started over a year ago
3: Finally finished all the sorting of my fabrics. . something started 2 years ago. Now it's all sorted into Large clear zippered bags. By color groupings too!
4: Cleared out all the "extra storage" from my bedroom and moved it to the shelving in the basement. Whew, that was a big chore
5: Organized my packaging area so everything is easy to reach and plenty of room to pack my products!

I'm exhausted. . . giggle. . . and now it's Monday, time to get busy working.

Picture coming later but, I Finally finished my scarf for around my neck Saturday. I had been working on the scarf for at least two years. All I had left to do was the fringe. The yarns I chose was a purple mixed with green camouflage yarn, all ready now for my romp in the woods.
Next I pulled out a baby blanket I started a year ago, so now I will finish knitting this one. It is a different yarn I chose for the baby, her mom does not want the traditional colors of pink, blue or yellow. So I went a totally different way. I can not wait for you to see it.
Off I go to see if I can knit yet, as my arm is still sore from my fall. So we will see if I can get something started before I head to the doctor.
Have a Beautiful fun day Sisters.

Hugs,

Here it it, hard to believe it took me over two years to finish it , but it is long. Finge takes awhile too.

Oh my goodness! Everyone has been super busy and doing an excellent job! I finished 2 more things that were on my UFO list. One of my shirts needed the seam stitched up as well as a pair of pj pants. It's nice to have a little more out of my UFO box.

Keep up the amazing work ladies!

Well, after embarking on a year long trip into "Happily Ever After" I have finally finished! Not ironed or framed mind you, baby steps..... :)

Without further ado,


I included a photo of the back because I am really rather proud at how tidy it is, very little mistakes made on this one. <3

Thank you so much! I was a giant weight to finish this, I've been trying to be good at not starting anything else until I wrap up those that are still waiting on my desk. I wish I could show the detail of the fabric in the photos. It's a wonderful hand dyed linen, 32ct stiffer weight in blues, purples, and pinks. When I got it in the mail I was totally smitten. <3

I have finished another project however DH is using the desktop which handles navigation much better than this touch screen does.

One thing I like to do is go to the lost and found at the school to find orphaned gloves and mittens to unravel for the yarn. One mitten I salvaged was definitely handmade with double strands of yarn. They were slightly stiff and very warm. I have a pictures of the washed hanks and wound balls.

Marie, I would have never thought of that. It's a good way to get extra yarn.

Oh you all are inspiring me to get some of my projects dug out and finished. I don't have too, too many but they still need done.

I finished another UFO! My son knocked over my Wizard of OZ figurine and it broke. I finally borrowed some glue from my parents and got it glued back together! Super excited to have it back on display.
