The oldest UFO

I managed to stitch my Sailboats and Seagulls today. After frogging and sorting floss for many days I really enjoyed stitching it again. I am much better stitcher now than I was 18 years ago, I see the difference while working on this piece.

If I will have as much enthusiasms for this piece as I had today, I'll finish it in January for Freddy's birthday (January 27th) as originally was to be, 18 years ago...

Do you have an old UFO? Join me and let's them finish! 

So long my friends, this is my last post for 2011. Now it's party time!!!


  1. Great progress, Evalina. I worked on my oldest UFO today also. You can my post about it here -

  2. Great job on your sailboats! It will make a great present for January. Happy New Year!

  3. I do have an old UFO. If I can find the special button that I need to go with it, I will be finishing that this coming year : ) Blessings, Shirlee

  4. oooo well done and wish you lots of luck to get it finished on time ... my birthdays the next day.. the 28th :) can't wait to see the full finish :) love mouse xxxx

  5. ACK! I FORGOT to post my picture yesterday of my 20 stitches (OK it might be 40) even though it was on my Toodedo hot list! We had a very special visitor all day.

    Does this disqualify me (which I'd totally understand I just don't see it say specifically in the guidelines) or do I just put on my stitching cap and REMEMBER to do it next month?

  6. Thanks for not kicking me to the curb! I did an update ( just so it is "fair" and people can see where I started at the beginning of this month and not think what they see at the end of January is two month's worth of progress. I figure at this rate I will be done no problem by 2015.

  7. What are the rules to working on the old UFOs? I have my birthday tabletopper that has sat unfinished for 2 years. I know that may not be as old as some, but that is my oldest UFO.

  8. Nice progress!
    My oldest UFO is from 2008 and I´m nearly finishing... step by step!
