No, it can't be?

Oh yes it is ....

Does anyone remember this? It's my one and only UFO project that hasn't seen the light of day for over 18 months!!! Yesterday was UFO night at Stitch & Stash and Mr Stick came calling at my home. 79 colours, stitched over 1 on 25ct and a lot of confetti stitches, i now remember why it became a UFO. I wonder how long it will be before it escapes out again. If you want to see what it is supposed to look like finished, this is it. Tonight its the stitchy club so i'll take something different with me.

Enjoy your day whatever you have planned

This looks great! I tried HAED's before, but way too daunting for me. I am always in awe of stitchers who finish one (or more!) of their patterns.

OH its LEO when you first mentioned this Julie (when was that lol) i thought it was a lion . Well you would wouldnt you, Great job Mr Stick all that prodding worked lol. I think Seymores honeymoon is over he has been nagging me this week , so I got the vine out to keep him quiet.
I wonder what delight you took to the stitchy club?

I know what you mean, I have a HAED tucked away that comes out once in a blue moon. Colours look lovely though, hope you manage to do abit more!

Oh Julie it's such a pretty piece & will look fabulous when completed. I know those confetti stitches are such a pain... but they are so worth it when you get the overall effect. Will be sending Wanda to help Mr Stick with the prodding to keep going with this. ;0) LOL

Good for you for starting it back up. It is a pretty design.
I feel really good about the owl sampler UFO, maybe I can justify the market purchases, lol.
Enjoy stitchy night

Wayhay!! Finally made it to the the top of your box I see, I will look forward to seeing lots of progress on this Julie!!

Just wondered if you had heard about the Knit factor?

Christine said...

You're brave, I wouldn't like to tackle that...

Mylene said...

A lovely design and looking forward to see more progress.

Lovely to see this one out again Julie. I'm not entirely sure I'll ever get back to my HAED. Think I've fallen out with!!!

Vicky said...

It will be awesome when it is finished. Keep going!!!

Oh Julie, that looks great! You should make an effort to pull this out once a week! Before you know it, you'll enjoy working on it!

Hi Again
Popped back to say Thank you for your encouraging words I think I am in one of those doldrums that comes from too much time in side! All this cold weather and snow, while pretty from inside, is a bit of a pain to go out in. But then on a brighter note gives us all much more stitching time!!
Happy stitching

PS I might have a go at GM later on in the year.. watch out for the postie!
