UFO Happy Dance!

I've been working on this design this week, and finished it yesterday:

It is My Big Toe Designs' "A New Day,"  stitched on 28ct evenweave with Weeks Dye Works threads.  I'm going to take it to the framers next weekend.

One down, thirteen more to go...I'm working on Heirloom Christmas Sampler (Victoria Sampler design) this week - I don't expect that to be finished in a week!  I have written the names of all my UFOs in the list on pieces of paper, and I draw one out on a Saturday.  That is the design I work on for the following week (Sunday to Saturday).  It's working well at the moment.

Rachel went back to Uni yesterday, so we now have a lovely, quiet house.  We are going down to Swansea for a couple of days to see her in February, but she won't be back home until April.  Steven will also be back in April for the Easter break.  Sammy has been looking at Universities, as we will need to go look around some of them in the summer.  She needs to apply for a Uni place at the end of the year - it's frightening to think that my youngest will be leaving home in summer 2012...

Happy Stitching!

What a great finish, congrats! I think finishing up all of your UFO's is a brilliant idea and what a neat way of choosing them. I'm just waiting to hear back from my Uni's at the moment, I hope to be going to Bath Spa in September. Happy stitching to you.
