I've had NO LUCK with the UFOs I have chosed to try and complete this year! First I got out the New Zealand map, only to discover kitty claws had been at it.....that one is an obligation piece and will have to be a future re-start. Then I thought I'd try and finish a tote bag design I started last year for a gift, only to find at least 3 counting errors that would force the frogs to invade. My enthusiasm for the design has waned, and if I have to frog most of it, I might as well frog it all and pick a different design to stitch on the tote, right? That will be another new start someday. So far I have failed to finish a UFO, but at least I did reduce the number in the box!
My dilemma now is to decide which of the UFOs left should get my attention....I have 5 left, not counting Flower Power (which I have discovered is also miscounted (too low on the fabric), so that one goes in the re-start category (thankfully I had only stitched a few leaves, and I do want to stitch it still!)
The 5 UFOs are:
17th Century Italian Garden by Liz Turner Diehl (aprox. 50% done)
Evening in the Park, Chatelaine Designs (just past the halfway mark)
Dragon Feather Afghan, Fanta Cat Designs (again aprox. 50% done)
Companions by Teresa Wentzler (maybe 25% done?)
Breaking Dawn, Kustom Krafts (only about 5% done, if that...)
All of them are either large, or detailed, or both! I'm already working on another Chatelaine piece (Holland) as well as the Papillon SAL Castles in the Air, each on a monthly rotation, or close to it. I need another large, detailed piece like I need a hole in the head! I'm leaning toward the Italian Garden, or maybe the Dragon Feather afghan, but I'm not sure! If you wanted to finish one of these THIS year, which would you choose?
