Progress Photo Friday!

This first photo is a project that I started for my husband 14 years ago!!!!!! When we were 17 and were dating. Then we split up and it ended up as a 14 year old UFO, which is SAD, because it is a SMALL piece. But, when you start a piece that says "I love you" for someone it's kinda hard to work on it and give it to anyone else, you know? There are memories attached, and it just doesn't feel right.

Well when I went diving into my deep WIP drawer last week I found it, and thought "I AM going to finish this! It's an old piece and even has that late 70's early 80's feel to it, but I am gonna finish it and give it to him! So I pulled this out to work on this month. I am looking to finish it this month.

When I first pulled it out, all that was done on it was the blue and red "O" and a little bit of the yellow "O" above the red and blue one. So, I have put in a good amount of stitching on it since I pulled it back into the light!

This one was a small kit I got from Walmart, It's by "The Sugarplum Express", it's a "Munchkins" kit, and is stitched on a piece of 5x7 cream colored 14 count aida.

And here is my progress on "Birdhouses". More than half done. I am anticipating there will be 2 finishes by the end of this month, possibly more if I get these ones done!

I also have not been posting as much because I got SIMS 3!!! And have been playing for houuuurrrs! Also I just got Seasons 8 & 9 of ER on DVD, so been watching them, and I stitch while I watch, but I don't seem to stitch as fast. I am also been trying to read more and have finished a few more books since I last posted.

So I have still been stitching quite a bit, but just not posting. I plan on sharing the other three projects after I have completed the 5 hours I have set as goals for the month, and if I don't finish the 5 hours then I will just post them at the end of the month!

Thank you all for reading!! Hope you have a great weekend!

They look incredible! Great work!
Aren't those old, forgotten WIPs fun? I found one I started when I was in high school - if I didn't have prezzies to do, I'd try to finish it :D
Ah well, maybe next year!

I am happy to hear you get to finish a long awaited WIP. Your DH will think it's pretty cool you made it for him. It's nice to receive a gift that is handmade from the heart.
