UFO Progress and Bits

I joined in with LaaLaa's UFO Support Group with the intention of clearing some of my unfinished objects before starting even more.

(Trouble is I'm such a sucker for new things, I already have two new projects on the go ... shhhh, dont tell Lynda)
I didn't really get my backside in gear and still have not finished anything!!

This has been almost ready for over a month now and just sat there unloved,

I did make a little progress with my little hexies, they are joining together to make something pretty.  

To be fair it does take ages to do these and they are coming along quite well,

Second was my crochet squares I started these and quickly fell out of love with them. 

The original idea was a cushion but I couldn't bear to carry on with them so they will end up as a mini cushion with lavender for my bed.  I have made a start on the back of the cushion but again not finished!

Oh and a sneaky pear dishcloth I just had to make...

Can I just share some lovely gifts I won this week from the lovely Jodi at OhSewBeautiful

I love cups and this one is my new breakfast cup, and how cute are these buttons?

The chocolate is long gone, the lavender bag is asleep amongs my fabric stash and the card has pride of place on my fireplace - I love it!  I have only skimmed the book but it has loads of promise.

Thanks again chick xx 

Jodi is hosting a Cupcake Swap, if you fancy joining in? 

 It's open until the 20th August, pop over and have a look I'm all swapped out for the minute but I might be tempted to join in at the last minute, I hate to be left out ;0)

I've had a few enquiries about the book thongs I mentioned in my last post.  Thank you for all the kind words, I have added some to my folksy shop if anyone is interested, I plan to add more soon x
Right I'm off to make another dint in my UFO pile.

Hi Lisa! Your UFOs are all so pretty. Can't believe you're not loving your Granny squares! We're so weird about our makes aren't we. I couldn't get on with my Japanese Flowers but thankfully Linda has taken them off my hands! Loads of love, Amanda xxxx

LaaLaa said...

Lovely, lovely makes! The hexies are so pretty. I won't be doing a swap for a while, either. xx

well done on the ufos, a bit of progress is better than none, i will be posting later or tomorrow about mine, im hoping to shame myself in to finishing something. x

Such very pretty hexies... I tried a few years ago but never had enough patience to make more than a couple of cushion covers... but seeing how lush yours ajavascript:void(0)re makes me want to try again!

I love the colours in your hexies and crocheted squares.
The pear is fab too, I`m going to make one but am working on a ripple blanket at the mo using up some yarn I have and I have to say it is so addictive!

Annie xx TheFeltFairy said...

Your hexies look so neat and lovely even if they are WIP's at least they look gorgeous! lol!

Jewel said...

I have entered the cupcake swap! I almost didn't as I am a bit swapped out too but I couldn't resist as I loved cupcakes!

Your granny squares are fantastic! Did you use a tutorial for them? I'm just starting to crochet and would love to make a granny blanket!

I have so many UFOs too I think I need to join the club! Who hosts it? x

August Paddock said...

Beautiful hexies! Lovely! I love the crotchet too. Cute buttons!

A Blessed Life said...

I am trying to finish many also, it is frustrating,you have to envy those wiith enough control to finish one thing at a time lol.The hexis are lovely colours love the little bushca doll.

Rebecca said...

I don't think you should feel bad at ALL about your unfinished objects - because you are probably one of the most prolific crafters I know of :). Seriously, you get more craftyness done in a month than I do in a year!

It would be a shame to dip into your hexie tin, it looks so pretty just the way it is.

Haha I need to join this group! I have so many UFOs... short attention span, can't help but flit from one project to another... and god forbid anything shiny should get in the way...

Thanks for the nod about the cupcake swap I dived over and have signed up just in time! Heather x
