Your star banners are adorable, Krista!! I love what you did and they look very festive for all the upcoming National celebrations.

Thank you Winnie. I was just using tape to hold it above the fireplace, but it keeps coming off. I need to find another way to hook it.

Ok, sew this wee quilt has been in my stash since last year.. all I needed to do was finish it with batting and backing…
Today we got slammed with a torrential downpour of unexpected rain, thunder and lightning ,,, I hid out in my sewing room…
I finished it up, scheeze! It only took about 20 minutes… why oh why did I procrastinate???



Hmmm, wonder if I should dig through my stash for another UFO!?!

We all procrastinate on projects and then they are done in a flash - just need to find the mojo to get started. LOL!

Love your turkey!

Oh my Grace, how I love that turkey little quilt!! It is just adorable and I love those warm fall colors. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and I always say, we have to enjoy this special day before we race into the Christmas season. This 20 minute UFO was the perfect answer to a day with , shall we say, less than desirable weather outside!! LOL!!!

Based on how cute this UFO turned out, I would vote that you dig out another. It might be another cutie that is easy to finish.

I think everyone is doing very well on their UFOs and PhDs. At least we are finishing a few projects. And adding more - I'm sure. LOL!

Linda, I am so proud of myself. I haven't added any new ones to my pile!! I have been keeping my focus strong on finishing what I have first. Now if only I could finish them faster lol.

I have finished 2 more UFOs this week!

I finished this 4th of July pillow I promised a family member. I had almost the whole pillow to do.

This is the new pillow next to mine.

Then I finished this scarecrow bag. I only had the eyes and eyebrows to sew on and then stuffing. I seriously don't know what took me so long.


Now I am about 80 percent done with my next UFO! I hope I can keep my momentum up.

I find that I don't do projects because they no longer interest me. Once I start on them again, they are easy to finish.

Thank you all. All my next project needs is some stuffing, but I ran out. I will grab some the next time I head to the store.

Grace, I'm not sure that is a word, but I love it! I am happy to be a crochetoress lol! Thank you Grace! Happy 4th to you as well.

I had needed another bag for yarn projects. I had made this bag from a pair of my husband's pants which I had cut off to make them shorts. He always wears out the knees. The fabric gets very thin and really can't be fixed. I finally attached the handles. These handles are made from a Ruffled Ribbon I received in a swap some years ago. I like them because they are sturdy and are pleasing to the eye. Now to finish those shorts.

Nice bag, Marie! I agree. Those handles are super cute. I like how you reused the pants.

My next UFO is finished! I finished the stuffed ghost bag that goes with my scarecrow I just finished. Now it's time to look through my list again and see what I need to finish next.
