My Angel...

Hello stitchers! I'm the new UFO'er and the UFO I have chosen (from many, many) is without a name or designer as it was a homemade chart from ebay, but I call it 'My Angel'.

I have been working on it for over 8 years, and I put it to one side an age ago and rarely picked it up again because of a whole line of mistake I made. I didn't realise that I was a whole line out at the time, and when I finally realised....I was waaaay past the point of no return. Every time I picked it up I saw the mistake. It doesn't help that it is almost entirely made up of confetti stitches and barely 2 of the same colour are close together.

However, as it turns out, this mystery chart resembles my daughter and so I'd love to get it framed and on the wall. When I started it my daughter was just a baby, now she is 8 and the chart looks uncannily like her. I'm happy to be here with everyone so I can perhaps be spurred on to keep at it. When I picked it up again, I found that I no longer see the mistake so maybe I'll get through it this time. I've got incentive this time. Although, even without the likeness to my daughter I'd still like to finish it, it's such a pretty project.



I'd like to try for every other Monday evening as my stitching goal to start with. I have a LOT of other WIP's to get through too, in between times.

Welcome Sonya ~
We here at the eventually website do get it done eventually! Don't we girls? Your angel is gorgeous to say the least. I don't see your mistake either. Can't wait to see her finished. Keep up the good work.
God Bless ~

Hello Sonya. You've certainly found the right blog to help you with your UFO (which is, incidentally, very pretty). You'll find stacks of encouragement from the rest of us who are all labouring away with the long lost UFO's and also from the one's who have completed their first and are now onto their 2nd UFO.
Looking forward to watching your progress. Happy stitching

Welcome to the group who bravely plod on with their UFOs but hopefully get there in the end. With the encouragement from this group you will make good progress. Best of luck.
