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.

Well, here we are

Can you believe how quickly this year has passed by? I know I have a hard time with realizing that in just a few days it will be a brand new year. Imagine that, two years of this Challenge and we are still finishing off the unfinished goodies. One thing is for sure, this year I did not attend to my UFO's as hoped and for that I am sad, however I was able to spend a good first 4 months of 2012 working on two pages of Xmas from HAED and another two pages from Northern Tranquility of Shinysuns. From there I worked up a Wedding Row from Bent Creek and then an "off the top" wedding sampler for special friends,  stitched on CONNECTICUT (M M Waldock Designs (formerly Oberlin Samplers)), stitched up 4 Friendship, the Trilogy from Heart in Hand for the Four from Forest. On July first, I began Regal (the eagle) for my Leroy's birthday/pc free day, many ornaments, a couple of birth samplers with an "off the top" safari theme, two Christmas samplers and finished off a ton of Christmas ornaments. *and I am sure to have forgotten one or two other little goodies along the way! Not bad for loosing that lov'n feeling half way through the year. Funny how the health of a loved one will do that eh?!

My intentions for 2013 are to become more diligent with stitching on some of the golden oldies in my stash pile and the fact that so far, I don't have any weddings to attend to or other such special occasions, those intentions may come into an honest action moving forward. I do believe that Northern Tranquillity will be on the top of that pile again.
So, with all of this said and done I truly hope everyone has made a dent in their own piles of UFO's and will join us again in the new year with another list of "to~do's"...
Merry Christmas 2012
Cheers to Happiness, Health and Love in 2013




  1. Merry Christmas! May the New Year ahead bring you numb stitchy buns and smiles.

  2. O.K. here we go again I am going to try and get my ufo's finished this year after all I am on the second year of some of them, silly me.
    Happy Newyear to all.

  3. I just discovered this blog, but I'm hoping I can join in because I have WAY TOO MANY UFO's that need attending to this year!
    Yes, I know it's already April, but I did get one of my ufo's done (yippee!) and now just need to work on the other fifty! LOL
