A finish

 Because the UFO's i've chosen to finish are just small ones i pick out 3 to try & finish on my sewing days. Saturday it was a wallhanging, a cushion cover & a needle roll. The cushion cover is being quilted, the roll just needs a ribbon & binding but the wallhanging is now finished.

Not an old ufo. I stitched it this year. I have my next 3 ufo's chosen to finish which will hopefully be this week.

Happy Stitching,

 Yesterday I joined in

hosted by Wendy.

Ably assisted by my furry friend Lil P

I was able to take 3 ufo's off my pile.

First one was stitched back in 2019.

The next one stitched 2020

All caught up ready for this years design.  Natalie of The Birdhouse  patchwork designs usually creates a Christmas stitchery like these every year & i have done them all.

This little project had been cut out for a year maybe & i stitched it up earlier this year. I added to borders to it & started the quilting last night.

Design by Michelle of The Raspberry Rabbits.

Yesterday i joined in

I picked out some ufo's on Thursday ready to start but first up i wanted to make a little mat for my air fryer to sit on. 

One of my favourite blocks. Why orange & white you ask? because it matches the kitchen i now have.

I wasn't keen on it at first but i barely notice the colour any more.

After that i opened up a folder that had a stitchery in it only to discover it contained 3 needing finishing. All the bindings were sewn down in the evening.

First up was this little Christmas stitchery.

Next up was this little stitchery
I was going through folders last year throwing out free patterns that i'd printed out & discovered this one already traced out. I had forgotten about it so i added it to my basket & got it stitched up. N

Next was this stitchery i bought at a craft show.
It was pre-printed & didn't come with a pattern which i didn't realise until i went to stitch it. By the time i had got around to taking it out & stitching it I couldn't even copy it to make a pattern as it was fading. I guess not having the pattern doesn't matter as i don't think i'll ever stitch it again. I had started stitching the binding down last night but i noticed i'd manged to get a pucker in it. Luckily it was under the end of the binding so i didn't have much to unpick & resew by machine this morning.
