Have you seen a UFO?
No not that type ha ha got ya .LL and my dear mother swear they have seen one or 2 but thats another subject.LL is fascinated with that subject tho and has many books in her collection on it.
Today I am talking about the U.F.Os that many of us have lying around our homes, those Un-finished Object ones we hide in boxes or baskets the ones that we keep thinking about and that keep saying FINISH MEEEE!!! FINISH MEEEEE!!! (do tell me they talk to you too? Scary voices they are lol)
Anyway I have a few and want to get them finished soon so I can get my W.I.Ps done (thats works in progress for any non crafty people) and then get stuck into my W.T.Ds (ok I made that one up it stands for Want to Do'es)
My UFOs are these satin patches from years ago when I was having a pathing moment.There are quite a few squares.What would you make how would you quilt it? I think it would be a small quilt if I use whats there and dont make more.
A pile of mending,a petticoat for this little girls dress I finished ages ago.Some may remember the fabric and vintage pattern from an old post.
I still have a gypsy lady crosstitch to do (dont hold your breath on this one) See it at my defunct craft blog HERE and I have a lovely cloth lady ribbon embroidery picture I have packed away at LLs shed somewhere. I hear her calling me often but I cant find her yet (will show you when I do)
I shall finish this knitting during the above (cant say what it is or who its for but is for someone many of us know)Yes I like to tease.
Then I want to make some Victorian/Edwardian outfits using some of these patterns I follow
The Dreamstress and SteamEngenious and a couple of other bloggers who make awesome period outfits they are so inspiring.
Then I want to turn this lace (you see a tablecloth dont you) I see a jacket/shrug/cardie type thing Magnolia Pearl style.
And I really want to start patchwork again.Its been years.This is one of my quilts from about 14 years ago.a queen bed size all machine done bar the hand quilted flowers took awhile but was satisfying to do.
Its a queen bed size I have been inspired to quilt by seeing some amazing bloggers quilts like our very own Dee Dees who made her very 1st one and mostly by hand.How cool is that?
But I finally finished Miss 5s owl costume remember it from HERE
Well ta da
Yes I am slow but I do get there eventually.
So I figure if I write all my U.F.OS, W.I.PS and W.T.Ds I will have to do all the above as you are all going to kick me into gear and keep asking what I am up to arent you?
In other news
Miss 8 nearly broke her thumb we thought it was till xray showed it wasnt. She did it at school jamming it in the flying fox The things kids do for attention!! LOL she is ok tho.
ps Sorry my blogging O.S darlings but we had another scrumptiously warm and sunny day here.When are you moving over? I promise snakes arent seen that often and spiders are few and far between.
