UFOs. Boy do I have plenty. I think it's more that I have start-itis. I just keep wanting to start things. Somehow finishing rarely seems to come in to the equation. I'm sure no one here knows the feeling.
Anyway, I'd like to introduce you to my two UFOs of choice for now. First my Vierlanden Sampler by Martina Dey.
I'll get a better picture for you. It's about 3 feet square and I'm maybe 10 inches down from the top on it. I'm working it in 2 Carrie's Creations threads and 1 Needle Necessities. I probably started it in 2006 or maybe 2005. It was originally a mystery sampler where we got 1 page a week for a year. My problem, I think, is that the very large motifs are disheartening. If I could finish one in a couple days I'd be happily working away one it, but at my pace it takes steady for for more than a week to do one motif. That's just depressing.
I'm also bringing along a needlepoint UFO:
It's a powwow shawl dancer that I started in 2005 I think. It's really simple stitching, but the problem is I am doing it mostly in Kreinik and I really, really hate working in Kreinik.
I'm hoping for an hour a week on both pieces, but my history indicates that might be a bit too adventurous a promise.
