Twisting Tale of Lost Scissors & UFO’s
June 30, 2007 § 2 Comments
For several days I have been hunting for the Thread Conditioner that I know I had somewhere. While searching I found all these dreaded UFO’s that haunt me with guilt.
And thus begins the twisting tale of UFO’s, those dreaded UnFinished Projects, and a lost pair of scissors.
UFO sighting #1
This Crocheted Cushion was started oh, maybe, 10 years ago. Before we bought our house I was really into crocheted doilies, coasters and blanket trim. The project stalled when I couldn’t figure out how to connect the two sections. It still doesn’t make sense to me. But there is a wealth of information on the Internet now! (as compared to then) I’ll have to spend some time researching joining techniques.
UFO sighting #2
This Christmas Quilt was probably started about 9 years ago. After my crochet stint, I went on an embroidery stint. I still love the embroidery. But I am not wild about the green plaid squares inbetween. I think I might even attempt to finish the embroidery. But the green plaid fabric will most likely be replace with something else.
UFO sighting #3
This felt pincushion kit was acquired at the Sewing & Stitchery Expo a couple of years ago. And here is where the tale takes a Twisting Turn. I found my beloved Cheetah Print Scissors that had been lost for nearly a year. I had been searching for so long, thinking that either a) the cat found them an amusing toy and pushed them off into a trash can or b) they had fallen out of a project bag somewhere in their travels and had been lost forever. I finally bought another pair in January when they went on sale.
And I did finally find that elusive Thread Conditioner five minutes before leaving for work!
