february ufo

This month I have been working on trying to finish the tops of my Lisa Bonegan  SAL minis and am happy to have a finish of one and a nearly finished on the applique one.
Just some berries and leaves are all that need to be done to finish it off.
There are bits that are a bit wonky and bits that don't look as perfect as I had hoped but it has been a learning curve making the different rows and especially working with such little pieces at times. Lisa's instructions are wonderful, wish she had written the Sweet william pattern!
Here is the photo evidence....
there were four more of these little buggers....  boy they would try a saint (of course I photographed the best one)



I am very happy with these and a big tick off my ufo list..... next to have them quilted
I have drawn March's ufo out of the bag and it will be No. 6 stitcheries. My task is to attempt to finish off the pile of stitcheries and cross stitcheries that I have stashed. I already have plans for two of them.....
after I sew the berries on my border of course, there's still one day left in february.
Off to craft group this morning so hopefully I can cut out all 36 of the tiny little things!
Have a wonderful weekend.

ps Melody is hosting a Rosalie Quinlan Stitchalong... I am not taking part in the United Stitches sew along but I have sewn quite a few of Rosalie's designs and this month you can share a favourite Rosalie project.
One of my favourites is the one I sewed for my friends birthday last year.
I still love it so much..


pop on over and see what everyone is sharing. Melody has a lovely prize to share too.
happy sewing!
