Is It Friday Yet??

I’m so ready for the week end. I have all these ideas for finishing projects I just want to get started with no interruptions. I'm just not interested after I get off work especially since I still have dinner to do. So I’m working on exchanges and gifts which means I don’t have any current pictures to show. I keep thinking I’ll take updated pics of what I'm working on but by the time I get home my mind has moved on the other things.

Since I don’t have any new pics to show I’m going to post the oldest UFO in my stash.




Leisure Arts from 1971 – I have 3 and a half of the small ones done. Still need to do the big one. What do you think the chances are you’ll see this finished in my life time? What would I do with them if I finished them?

Blast From the Past
Catch up time

First Round for the Year Long Prairie Schooler Exchange

I received my first ever pynkeep. It’s from Karen D and now hangs in my sewing room.


This is the Pynpillow that I sent to Cyndi. I changed the fiber colors to match the fabric and stuffed it with wool batting to protect the pins from rusting.

Thanks for stopping by
Have a great week.

Sorry but it isn't Friday yet. In fact I think (but don't quote me on it) that it is in fact Wednesday! Anyway I love the stitching, and I'm so glad that your UFOs are older than my UFOs. But then again I wasn't stitching in 1971 - I had a baby that year and was busy and then had two more and was even busier. Love Patti xxx

Just had to let you know, I have these same Jiffy cross stitch! They are the ones that got me hooked in the 70's

Shay,
You've created a very interesting and beautiful blog. I love your Pynpillow - it's petty and the finish is just perfect!
My favorite among your WIPs is Wirhenburg Spot Sampler - the colors are gorgeous there!
Hugs,
Olga

WOW! The covered bridge was my very first project back in 1971! I still have a couple left to do also.
