UFO #8

Country Threads choice of UFO this month was #8, which for me was a cross-stitch Christmas pillow.  I'm happy to report that it's done!  I totally missed out on getting UFOs finished in May and June, so hopefully I'm back in the saddle and can keep up the rest of the year.
I had the cross-stitch done and just needed to finish the pillow.  This is a pattern from With Thy Needle and Thread.  If you have this pattern, you're probably thinking that the proportions of this pillow are wrong, and you would be right!  Finishing this up was a comedy of errors, and I decided it could be any size I wanted, so that's what happened!  Anyway, it's done now and I'm ready for Christmas, I guess.

When Donna and I went to Primitive Gatherings a few weeks ago, we both ended up buying the kit for a wool bag, and we've both already gotten it finished.  It was a quick, fun bag to put together.
Wooly sheep faces on the front...
wooly sheep tails on the back!  I'm using this bag for my Summer Block of the Week blocks, on which I'm still very behind.  Hopefully I'll have some pictures to show of that in a couple weeks.


  1. congrats on finishing your super cute UFO. Love it.
    Love your little bag too.

  2. Both of these projects are adorable! The wool tote is so unique...love it!

  3. Your wool bag is so darn cute! I love, love your Christmas cross stitch❤️

  4. Congrats on two finishes! The wool bag looks time consuming, but love those sheep tails! :-)

  5. The Santa cross stitch pillow looks fine to me. I like this style pillow with the cross stitch on one side.
