Last night I was thinking about UFOs that I’d really like to finish. There isn’t anything I’ve started that I would like to toss or give away. I love everything and, even though I am still starting new projects, I do want to get some UFOs finished.
I grabbed my bin of UFOs and started looking through them and pulling out what I feel like I could finish without too much time and effort. Here are the ones I am going to concentrate on finishing but I’ll still be working on other projects at the same time . . which may not work so well for me since I’ve kinda become a monogamous stitcher recently.
These are in no particular order though I’ll give you my thoughts on where they probably rank in order of importance as far as finishing goes.
For the Love of Nature:
I love this piece so much! I don’t know if it’s the colors, the fabric, the design . . I want this one finished and if you look at what I have left to stitch, even though it’s a lot of stitches, it looks fairly easy. This may be the first thing I finish. This one was started in December, 2020. How can that be? Seems like maybe a few months ago!
Thy Love Divine:
This should probably be the first one I finish but I’m going to say if I can get it finished by our anniversary on August 1, I’ll be happy. It was started in April, 2021 and I had no doubts I’d have it finished by our anniversary. Didn’t do it! Didn’t do it for 2022 but maybe I can get it done for 2023.
Love is the Key:
This one is fairly close to being finished and I think I could get it done if I stitched on it for a couple of weeks without too many interruptions . . you know . . cooking, cleaning, dog duties, 10 trips to Walmart per week. I love it. I want this on my wall today! 🙂
This one was started I think in mid-January, 2022.
Forever & Ever:
This one I should be able to finish in maybe three weeks. I started this one in March, 2022. Not the oldest for sure but I do like it and really want this one on my wall too.
A Sampler For All Seasons:
This one I started in September, 2022. I got this much done fairly quickly, then stopped working on it while waiting for floss to arrive to change the color of the Summer house on the bottom left. The floss came in and I’ve never gotten back to it but this one wouldn’t take but a few weeks to finish either.
Yesterday I was looking at the projects I’ve finished in 2022 and there are 11 as of now but they are all small. These five that I’d like to get finished . . they’re all bigger than any I stitched in 2022.
Even though I’m liking working on one project at a time, I think . . starting today, I’m going to work on one of these UFOs from 10 p.m. til midnight every night til it’s done. The rest of the day, I can work on whatever current project I’m working on.
That plan is what I’m going to think about today while I’m delivering Addie back to her home.
