Looks like January 16 was a bad time when you had no staying power.

I have no ufos. There has only ever been 2 pieces that I haven't finished one was a clown that I hated and chucked out when we moved on 2009 - must have started 2 or 3 years earlier and another was a huge ship one that I started and abandoned in 2010 and will never go back to as it's just not my thing - think I might have cut of the extra fabric for something else.

[quote="snavenasus"]Looks like January 16 was a bad time when you had no staying power.

Do have staying power just ran out of time with other things on like everyone has or another kit or chart you fancy stitching more than the ones you are working.Some I started at the craft group and this shows that I never had time to do any stitching as I was doing the bookkeeping for the group most of the time which I have now given up last year. And in 2016 I was stitching my British wildlife really wanted that one done.

But we are here to have some fun and help us complete are UFOS.

Reclining lady 2009 done and dusted
Winter snow scene 2013
Dimensions Christmas scene 2015
not as bad as I thought.

Got so many projects that i would like to start as well , I have a ballet scene but since its all in grey and half stitches can safely say its going in the bin as i have miscounted and going to be a pain to unpick.

My current WIP 's are
HAED mini butterfly effect
Birthday card ecxhange

At the moment I have my King's and queen's stitch and I found a gorjuss one the other day. I do have more than this but time is precious with a toddler. Will work on these two before I wade through my craft cupboard for more lol.

Thought the gorjuss one would be easy but picked it up yesterday to realise I have lost the back stitch page... Noooo!!! So now I am trying to fudge it with the picture of the front. It is so hard!!

I don't have any UFOs either. I try to never have any because I don't like leaving things unfinished.

thank you paula for sharing you list. Rovaris- Owl, with the threads change do you still have the bar code for the threads as some of us might be able to help by having the right match so you don't have to unpick and restart.

How is everyone getting on with their UFOs? I have one nearly finished. My gorjuss design only needs another couple of days work. I didn't have much left to finish on it. The kings and queens is another kettle of fish. Is going to be a long slow process as it just seems to be one problem after another. Threads breaking, loosing colours, tangled threads etc :lol:
