When the rains came the roof of the garden shed began to leak and one of the windows broke. Not a big deal as damage goes, but it prompted me to go and check on the plastic storage boxes I had stored there and bring them indoors. I had mainly packed away surplus wool stash [I know!] and as is always the way, you find things you had forgotten you had and one or two UFO’s [unfinished objects] mixed in. One of them was this.
A chunky lap quilt that I had begun to knit and crochet squares for. I am now glad to say that it is finished and sitting folded on the back on the armchair ready for when that extra cosiness is needed. That then reminded me to finish yet another UFO, this one. The top had been finished yonks ago and just needed the padding and backing. Now done!
Once again, I really must apologise for the quality of the pictures, I am the world’s worst photographer. However, the one thing I should have been finishing still lies unfinished. It is this shirt – in the making since the beginning of December. It needs the plackets and cuffs on the sleeves and buttonholes machined, then the side and sleeve seams can be done and voila! – So why the delay? I have no idea…well I have really, but perhaps laziness doesn’t count as a real excuse. But I will finish it this weekend-I tell myself.
