Jumping In....



My name is Sharon and I own a UFO. (Bows head in shame).... My piece is Paula Vaughn's "Delicate Beauties". When I first saw this piece, I just HAD to have it. I put the first stitches into this in 2006. I just love the colors and the quilt, but little by little, it sank further to the bottom of my "pile". I think it became a UFO because of it's size. (That's my story and I'm sticking with it). This isn't the type or size project that you can throw in a "grab and go" bag to be stitched while waiting during sports practices and other activities. This project has lots of confetti stitches and color changes so I really have to pay attention to what I'm doing. Quiet time is at a premium around my home (wouldn't have it any other way!!), but it does make it difficult to find time to work on the "concentrate" project. I REALLY do want to finish this - ya'all just keep after me, okay?? :)
Looking forward to meeting and encouraging everyone,
Sharon in FL

Saw this on your main blog, just loved the colours. It looks a bit Cath Kidston to me with the pastel colours, v trendy. Check out her website and you will understand what mean (www.cathkidston.co.uk - see I know it off by heart!Fingers crossed you get some quite time to make some progress.

Wow, I'll be watching this one. I've never had enough courage to try a really big project-good for you. I've been trying to learn the art of not hearing anything when I'm stitching( doesn't work though). Looking forward to seeing progress.

Love the colours and the design. I really hope you will be able to finish it. I have a granny weekend so I am hoping to do some more of my UFO. I hope to post pictures on Sunday.
