UFO week




This week is UFO stitching week at Life's A Stitch. I moderate the UFO board there. This is the UFO piece I'm working on now that Plymouth is completed. It's Birds of a Feather Happy Hearts Sampler. It combines the things I love to stitch best, hearts and samplers. It's on 40ct R&R but I can't remember the name of the fabric and it is done with one strand of WDW thread. This was a design I probably wouldn't have chosen if I'd just looked at the chart but I saw the stitched model in a shop in Arlington, MA and had to have it. That's the beauty (and treachery) of a brick and mortar LNS - seeing a model often changes your mind about a design. I'd say I'm about 1/2 way done with this as the remainder has a lot of detail left. But I really enjoy working on this piece so I'm not in too much of a hurry.

I've also made great progress on this little piece. I didn't have the WDW Seaweed that it calls for but I was able to pick that up on Saturday and continue my stitching. This is the piece I've been working on in the morning before going to work. It's going to be a gift and I've been mulling over finishing techniques as I've been stitching. It's from the Trilogy's Seaology chart. I recently bought several of these and really like them. I have Eekology and Cardiology as well. This should be done by the end of the week!

How kewl!!! I love your mermaid design and I have always liked the BOAF Happy Hearts Sampler. I've been tempted to pick it up so many times at the LNS, you may just push me over the edge!

Looking forward to more progress photos...

Well done on finishing your UFOs :o)

I love the look of the Happy Hearts sampler Patti! I must go and check that one out - hearts are one of my favourite things to stitch :)

Your sampler looks great, but 40ct fabric... wow. I try to stick to 32 or larger just for the sake of my eyes :) It looks great though, can't wait to see your progess on it!

I love the BOAF sampler!! I have it in my stash and want to stitch it too. I am not sure if I will change all the initials, though!!
