My house is looking rather sad and empty. Reality is starting to hit, and now I just can’t wait for our visas to come through so that we can book our tickets. Until then… it is time to get going with some stitching! I kept a few stitchery ufos out so that I can work on them while I am in limbo, and I have noticed that most of quilting blogland is listing ufos at the moment…. ah, the joy of starting a new year!
Now this year is going to be full of changes for me.. not just in real life, but on the net too. I’ll be “announcing” some of these changes bit by bit.. the first one is that Finishing Stitches is now officially hosted by Alice as well 🙂 As usual we will have a charm pack up for grabs each month, and since I have no idea how the postal service in Saudi works, I will buy the charm packs and Alice will send them 🙂 How is that for teamwork? She’ll also be helping out with posting our finishes while I am off galavanting to different countries…
So, here is the new button for Finishing Stitches:
A reminder of what it is all about:
Part A – Finish a UFO that has been lying around for more than a month. Really, I don’t care how long it has been a UFO – whatever your definition is, is fine by me 🙂 I just want us all to get things done that we have started. Just finish a UFO – big, small, made of paper, wool, fabric, paint, whatever.
Part B – this is only for quilters I’m afraid. It is to finish a BLOCK for ANY quilt (UFO or just started). The idea is to finish the bigger projects, we divide them into smaller goals. You can work out what your definition of a block is. Small block, big block, stitched block, applique… Again, just as long as you are finishing….
Please let me know when you finish something for either Part A or B, by leaving a comment on any post or sending me an email, and either send me a pic or point me to a pic on your blog that I can pinch.
You can join in on one or both 🙂
Leave a comment on this blog post if you want to join in this month or email me.
Let’s get this new year of finishes started!!!
