My UFO list and first finish
Now, if I say this verrrrrry quietly and quickly it might not seem so bad. I finalised my UFO list, which is here on my blog and there are 50. You really cant see that number can you? No, I thought not.
I am not even going to pretend that I can get all those finished in 1 year. Not a chance. But for the other years I had made a list of about 12 items, mainly the bigger ones, which I thought should be my priority. No. It didnt work. I finished quite a few UFOs, but not too many from that list. So I figured that this year I would list all I could find or remember about, and then when I cross them off the list I will be able to see that the list is shrinking. Well, that's my theory and I will see if it works.
The good thing is that I have finished ONE item off the list. I did the embroidery on this when I went for my first embroidery software lesson after buying my embroidery machine. It would have been in 2003 - yes, 10 years ago. That is how long it has been hanging around in my cupboard. It has even moved house with me twice in that time. All I had to do was trim it, sew around it, stuff it and stitch up the opening. How long would that take? Hmmm. 10 minutes. Yes, about that. Maybe 12 minutes if I was in a slow mood.
Anyway, here it is, a small finish, but still a finish
