UFO night 15th July

Sunday, July 19, 2009 Posted In , Edit This 0 Comments »
I organise an informal UFO night at the forum I'm on - A Crafty Natter. It's kind of a SAL where we all make the commitment to stitch on one of our UFOs (UnFinished Objects) once a week and then we post the progress pics and cheer each other on. A proper UFO is a piece that has been laying about for years and that you have lost interest in, but by making an effort to stitch on it by commiting to UFO night, it's amazing how far you get after a while.

I have already had some HDs on UFO night, but there's one piece I keep coming back to. It's a calendar with a design for each month, they are all made on one long piece of fabric and by mounting it in a loop and attaching it to this extremely expensive bell pull end you can pull the fabric down for each month and keep track of time so to speak. I have already bought the bell pull end and I think that's the reason why I feel I have to finish this despite it being on Aida (which I never use anymore) and despite having grown tired of the whole thing. Mind you UFO night has made me slightly more keen on it again, and I have come as far as August by now - I can actually start to see the end of it.

So enough talk, here's the update pics, and I will post this weeks effort first and then last week. Not a huge amount done this week, I somehow found the Castles in the Air a lot more interesting, but I did do some :D. Oh, and UFO night is on Wednesday, but we are fairly laid back and as long as you get it done by Sunday it's accepted.
