Well, after your masterpieces I will shyly sneak in my finished my tote bags..nothing fabulous but they make me smile I finished the appliqué on them about 8 years ago when I first wanted to try my hand at machine appliqué. They are made up mostly of vintage yo-yo's that were made by my great auntie. The half finished bags have moved country with me and how now finally been assembled, ready to send home to my Mum and 2 sisters who they were originally intended for. I decided that they were probably never going to take them out in public so I swapped out the shoulder straps and made them into draw string 'project bags'. Now they have somewhere to store all the bits and pieces of their own UFO's! Now onto finishing my advent calendar!

Good evening. Just a reminder that my term is coming to an end on New Year's Eve. We could still use someone to step up and take this UFO Challenge board over. Anyone wishing to do so, please PM me and I'll be glad to share my trade secrets. Thank you!

I have been enjoying all the finished UFO on here. Wonderful to all.

That seems like an extremely painful injury because you can't breathe, eat, sneeze, yawn, put on clothes, etc. without moving ribs! Hope you recover soon!

Default 2 more UFOs done!

Hey all,

Here's the last of the trivets from that bunch of clothesline I bought a while back. Don't know if I'll get any more UFOs done before the end of the month.

Rob have to give you credit on those trivets. I wanted to make those so bad, bought the clothesline etc. and ended up just dying it. That wrapping drove me nuts and I really had a mess!
Nice finishes on the quilts and bags too, you all have been very busy!!
I haven't gotten too much done with moving into our new house, but it's finally pretty much done. I started these placemats and the runner last year, finally finished them last night, just in time for Christmas. Actually have 6 more placemats for the set. Finished this baby quilt this morning, it's been in pieces for 2 or 3 years.dscf3692.jpg dscf3693.jpg

Rryder, congrats on finishing up those trivets. You are probably an expert at it now. Toot, Toot!

Default 300!!!

Jaba, you get the grand prize! Even if you count the placemats as a single UFO finish, these two bring our total year to date to 300! Toot, Toot for your wonderful UFO finishes and for helping us achieve that 300 mark.
