The only rule is to have fun, keep an eye for you threads and be always in stitches.
Pick 15 projects that are ALREADY STARTED and FINISH them.
ha, there you are, my challenge to you. Not new ones coz we all know there are far more than 15 to which we would like to start.

Finally finished it!

I know I've been a bit quiet lately (lots going on here) but I have been working on my UFO's. In fact I've managed to finish 2 of them....yes 2!

The first is my Monopoly SAL that I started intended for my mums birthday in 2010....mmmm here we are a year later and I missed her birthday this year as well LOL!  With lots of perserverence it's now ready for Mother's Day which is this Sunday here in the UK. As mum has recently bought a new board all fancy in a wooden box I decided to quilt this so she can use it as a wall quilt or for when she goes away. That way she'll only need the accessories in a little bag from her old monopoly set.  This is the finished item.

Then just to make things fair I found the Quaker bookmark I'd started last year for my MIL and decided that if I worked hard I could also get this finished in time for Mother's Day.  I did finish it and off it went into the post today for my MIL who reads loads so hopefully she'll like it.

Going to dig out my French SAL next as I'm up to April ( a year later!) and DS1 is starting private French lessons this month so it'll be for him.
