Yup…I’ve been busting again…BUT unfortunately, this UFO is not from my UFO pile!
Let me back up a bit…Clubhouse Quilter, Chris went home last year with the itch to do a wool project…(hmmm wonder where she got that from?) SEW when she could scratch no longer, Chris ordered a kit…got it cut out and glued together and then started stitching it…HATED IT!! She said it was no fun at all…all those wee little letters! So it sat there…unfinished…until she gifted me her UFO!
So for the past four or five nights I have worked on this wee mat. I have to admit that this was NOT an easy mat to stitch…For one thing it is wool felt (not wool fabric) so it stretches and loses it’s shape..the needle doesn’t glide through like butter soft wool…and although it doesn’t fray, it gets fuzzy and linty..so I have to agree with Chris, it was not a good first project.
But having said all that…it IS pretty dang sweet when complete! Chris was tickled when I gifted it back to her!
So another UFO bites the dust….(and the crowd ROARS…YAY!!!) I think Chris should get the itch just one more time…only this time dabble with REAL wool…and maybe bigger pieces…! Just sayin’…
What about YOU? Have you busted a UFO lately? It’s a great feeling when you hear that crowd roar!
I hope you have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P
