For myself - I'm running behind, but the hop has definitely given me impetus to work on a couple of of my UFOs. I'm determined to finish at least one of them! What am I working on?
UFO #1: Orange Blossoms Tea Cozy. The biggest challenge here is I hadn't done any hand embroidery in YEARs! I look at my earlier work, compare it to my current, atrophied skill levels, and wonder if it was really me. Then I consider adding beads. I know beads! Then I worry about washability. Then I wonder if washability really matters....
UFO #2: Starry Night Collar. I've worked on this piece off and on since the 2012 blog challenge that originally prompted the piece. The photo below shows where I left off, way back when. Yeah, it was pretty sad (I don't want to say how many hours this photo represented)
|As far as I got in the original Big Hole Hop Challenge|
As of this morning, the front is almost done - but there's still plenty of stitching to go on the back. I also need to sort out the final clasp mechanism. Will I get it done in time? That's a really good question!
Guess we'll see Saturday morning. At the very least, I will share where they both are today. And we'll get to see what everyone else has accomplished. Guess I better get back to work!
oooh! I asked for embroidery materials for my birthday this year (they should arrive tomorrow .... on my birthday :) I used to embroider as a girl, so we'll see if it is like riding a bike. I LOVE the idea of a starry night necklace and can't wait to see how this one comes together! See you tomororwReplyDelete
