Christmas UFO challenge.....


I wonder who else has an unfinished Christmas project..... I seem to have a few...

Joy has put out a challenge specifically for a Christmas UFO - you can read about it HERE...  I seem to get things done when I sign up to a challenge or sew-a-long so I thought I would join in.....

One of my Christmas UFO's is this bunch of blocks that I received a few years ago doing a Christmas block swap.  I want to make each block into place mats ..... there are at least 12 but I'm not sure I will get them all done - the challenge is for 2 so I will work on that for a start ....


I just need to find some pieces to go along the sides to make them rectangle shape - I am going to use up scraps as much as I can.......  they may not end up the most beautiful but they will be functional!


Once again there is a big mess on the table.... sorting scraps kindof does that?????



The weekends hand sewing has resulted in a couple of birds being stitched up 

... more from Michelle's Christmas ornament stitcheries....





Righto, Gotto Go.... I want to at least have the top of the blocks ready by the end of the day....

  6. Keeping busy, I see! I'm working on my Christmas UFO, but I don't think I can get it finished for this year. Progress is being made, however.

  9. Your UFOs will make great placemats! So bright and fun. And the busy fabrics will hide a lot of spilled and dribbled food, ha ha! Very important when the grandkids are visiting :)

  11. Your placemats are going to be beautiful, I know! I couldn't sleep last night thinking about all the things I had to do, and ended up sorting out scraps like you :) Had a hot chocolate and then headed for bed and fell asleep (oh, and found some more ufos -aaarrrrggghhhh!!) I'm heading close to the 200 mark now!!! xx
