WIPocalypse.......

The question for this month, What makes you pick up a long-abandoned UFO rather than beginning a new piece?

Please do not hate me but I do not have any UFO's. Once I start a piece it stays in my rotation until it is finished. Some times that means I only work on it for an hour or maybe two during it's turn in rotation but I never leave a piece to just sit for long periods of inactivity. I can not stand to have a piece that has been started and it just sits waiting for attention. So I will only keep it in the rotation just not give it as much attention as others.

I know most stitchers can not understand this but if a piece is going to be started it needs and wants to be finished and if it does not get attention then it throws a right nasty little fit. Think 2 year old tantrum. So at my house we do not let it get to that point.

Since I only joined about a week ago I will just show pictures of what I am working on currently. First is Frank's Family Portrait by Glendon Place, Christmas Cottage by HAED, Women who behave by Sue Hillis, June Cottage of the Month by Country Cottage Needleworks and finally 1of 20 squares for a quilt I am building for my son.

  7. I work on my projects similarly. I don't like to have anything that doesn't get worked on. Unfortunately, right now I have two projects like that and it is bothering me. Your projects are very pretty. Cross-stitch and quilting. Hmm...sounds familiar.
