Missing UFO Found!

A year or two ago I was working on a piece that I was so excited to finish and frame on hang on the wall to show everyone! But while I was working on this project I totally lost my stitching bug. I mean to the point to where I put all my stitching stuff away and ignored it for months and months. When I decided that I wanted to start stitching again, I could not find that one piece that I was working on. As a matter of fact I could not find the entire bag that it was in. I had lost the chart, the floss, my favorite scissors, a very special needle minder that was made for me, and of course the cross stitching itself that was still on the Q-snap! I searched and searched and could not find it so I gave up and started stitching other things. So, the other day I went searching for something different and I came across the bag!!! I was so excited to have found it. Everything was there! It was a bit dirty but I worked and got it all cleaned up! I found the needle minder that was missing which Dawn had given me as a gift. I found my favorite scissors which I had won from a contest that another stitching blogger was having. My needle book that was also a gift from a special friend from France was there as well. I am not ready to start working on this piece yet, but I am so happy that I have found it and one day I will finish it! So anyway, this is it:
And this is my progress on the piece before I lost it:These are the special items that went missing along with the project:

So anyway, I just had to share that with you all. I did not get any stitching done on my Cross Stitch Collector this week. So there is not reason to show you a pic of her because it is the same as it was in my last post!

I have been working on a card for my step-dad's birthday and this is the progress on it so far.
And finally the Valentine's card that I made for hubby:
And this is the inside:
Well that is all for now! I am going to start trying to make Sunday's my posting day because it is the only time that I ever have to blog! So, I will have more next week!!

Happy Stitching,

Yay! Congrats on finding your long lost WIP! Of course more importantly are those special stitching tools.

Your Dad's card is looking great and you did a fantastic job on your V-Day card!

Hi Cindy
I have just been browsing through your blog. It is fantastic. I love your eagle cross stitch. I can't wait to see it finished.

Cindy said...

Thank you all for your wonderful comments! One day I will have the bug back for the Eagle piece and then I will be able to show more of it off! :)

That is a lot of work to have lost, but I am glad you found it. Great job on all! I once lost a completed stitched ornament that I hadn't finished. It was missing for 3 years. I swore my niece (whom I was making it for) had taken it, but one day, I opened a drawer and there it was!

Irene said...

Great that you found the missing stitching. Lovely valentine card.

Alberta said...

Cindy, that is going to be a gorgeous finish when it's done! So glad you pulled it out.
