One U.F.O

Tree of life











I’m sure you’re the same as me and have several U.F.O’s!  Last year I got fed up with the constant ‘I should finish that’ and its associated guilt and found all my U.F.Os. Guess what I did next?

I threw out or gave away everything I did not really want to finish.  And it was liberating! I can highly recommend it.


So now all of my remaining U.F.Os are things that I still like and still want to make. And this is one of them.

This cross stitch cushion was started when my good friend was pregnant with her first child – who has just turned 10! 




It’s one of my original designs and is based on the tree of life. I’m sure I will definitely finish it – one day!

Oh and don’t forget to enter my giveaway!

I will post it anywhere, be it round the corner or round the world.

    lol, I started knitting a baby jumper when I was expecting my son. I only managed part of the front of it, and it’s still sitting in my needlework box. He’s going to be 24 this week!

    That’s just beautiful, you have to finish it!

    I finally, last year, threw away the sweater I started the first time I learned to knit, about 15 years ago. It was so freeing! That thing moved with me from Utah to California to Germany to Virginia and back to California. Crazy!

    Gorgeous. The colors are glowing against the dark blue.
