UFO's from before the Dawn of Time

I have been blaming the Crafty Princess for getting me started on Golden Wood - as if somehow it is all her fault - so I say here publicly that I had a cross stitch problem from an early age.  I offer you photographic evidence. (see above)  The ABC was for the child of a friend started about 23 years ago when Lynn became pregnant.....child is now 22 and I have got up to E for Echidna.....pitiful effort.  The other the cross stitch runner on linen was started even further back into the mists of time.....when I was in my early 20's - which makes it at least 30 years ago.  At least I still have the pattern for the ABC and the threads that came in the for the linen pattern and no basically NO CHANCE of ever finishing it.....but it is interesting like some strange artifact dug up in an archaeological site and displayed in the British Museum.....can you image my partially completed runner sitting next to the Rosetta Stone ...... ??


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog and for becoming a follower. I too have many wips (refuse to call them UFO'S LOL). I love you stitching. Don't despair about misplacing the chart for the table runner you can always use the remaining linen for something else.

  2. Oh my gosh! I absolutely LOVE the Aussie alphabet cross stitch!! Lucky you still have the pattern! I would love to see it finished. Also, where is the D?? The linen runner looks great too, such a shame that you don't have the pattern for it. Maybe just make it up as you go along? lol But then again, beethoven had an unfinished symphony and it was still a masterpiece! :)

  3. I agree with Bec - where is the D?? You can't say u made it to E if you left out a letter. Naughty. I started Sunny but all I did was kit it up and put a few stitches in to experiment with coverage - ie one strand or two?? Then I put it away and continued on my allotted rotation cross stitch. Aren't you proud of me. I got started on that second eye so now faery doesn't look so much like Janine river eye. LOL! Keep going stunner it will happen maybe not overnight but a finish is on the horizon. XO
