I'm sure most of us stitchers have UFO's? Well I have begun a sort out of my loft which contains a variety of stuff, including lots of my craft stash. the first thing I am getting rid of is my stitching magazines, and other magazines too. I first began collecting magazines when the first issue of Needlecraft was issued in 1990, and then went on to collect the other cross stitching magazine publications which followed hot on the heels of Needlecraft.
Anyway back to the original subject UFO's, I have been thinking about digging out this sampler for quite some time now, and yesterday I was in the loft just looking at my stash of fabric, and this UFO appeared in a box (I bet if I had gone looking for it I wouldn't have been able to find it). So I pulled it out and started wondering why it became a UFO? I have always had a love of samplers and still love the look of this one and the colours.
And for anyone wondering, this sampler pattern appeared in an earlier issue of Cross Stitch Collection, I know this because I made a working copy of the pattern. I have no idea which issue, so I am going to have to look through the magazines to find out which one, and then I can show you what it will look like finished.
This linen by the way is beautiful, does anyone know if you can still by Edingburgh linen?
Thank you to those of you who are still out there reading my blog, and those who took time to leave me a comment I appreciate it.
I have lots to share, but I'm just taking it slowly, I need to rediscover how to edit my photo's and maybe a change of software might be in order. My expert is home until tomorrow, so think it's time to wake him up, it's nearly 16 hours since he went to bed, but he had been up for over 36 hours.
See you all soon.
