UFOs and Finishing Stitches

Grabbing my mojo and running with it ... Joy of Days Filled With Joy hosts a monthly challenge to finish or at least work on your UFOs. Considering my collection of flimsy finishes this month I'm joining in. Visit Joy HERE to find out more.

My UFOs have been mentioned in earlier posts and are also listed on my blog pages above but to put them altogether I have written a list. Of course I'm pretty sure 1 or 2 forgotten projects could be added later.

Hmmmm, is 26 good, bad or middle of the road?  To date I have finished Calendar Bears and Jelly Roll Mystery to flimsy stage. My 3rd flimsy finish is Because I Said So (started early 2011) which I haven't had time to share till now.

Next project is a quilt I started pre 2008 with a cushion panel for the centre,  then worked the design more in 2013.

The inner border was still undecided and now I'm planning on a piano key border but of course I will need to buy fabric for those. This one I'm designing myself as it evolves.

Today for a quick project I found the squares I had cut before Christmas to make a bowl cosy but run out of time.  Ta da ... 2 bowl Cozies.

For something different, a mystery parcel needed collecting from town and I couldn't remember ordering anything.

My blog book had arrived in record time.  This one spans 2016/2017 as my posts had dwindled in number ... It's always wonderful to look back over the year's starts, finishes and memories.

Time to make a cuppa and browse a quilt book I borrowed from the library.
