Hockey Rivalry

Due to the motivation created by this wonderful blog, I have decided to pull this UFO out of my "UFO black hole" and add it to my weekly stitching projects. I saw this wonderful pattern in one of the many needlework catalogs I receive and due to my hockeymom status, I knew it was something that I had to stitch. So I ordered it last fall and worked on it for about 3 months, then it just got too tedious and I lost patience.

Title: Hockey Rivalry
Designer: D.R. Laird
Kit: Dimensions (contained cotton thread, blending filament, needle, instructions, and 16 ct aida - which I traded in for 32ct hand-dyed evenweave).

So, here I am, publicly announcing that I will finish this project before the end of the year!

I do hope you achieve your target. This blog is great for helping us to reduce our pile of "I'll get round to it later"

Hey there. This looks interesting. Part of my family are hockey players(only grass not ice). I know it's a slower game but just as exciting. Perhaps you'll have to do it in timed periods and allow yourself timeouts for coffee and cake. But don't get yourself in the 'Sin Bin'. It's amazing how this blog is helping to uncover long lost UFOs. It'll be great when you finish it. Happy stitching-looking forward to seeing your progress.
