When is a UFO an FO but not an FFO and yet remains a UFO?

When it's Brooke's Books' Stitcher's Alphabet, that's when!

stitched on 28 count afghan

Spaceship, spaceship!


The latest block of the Stitcher's Alphabet is now complete, it's full coverage so it took ages!  The flying saucer is metallic and there are beads too.  

So it's an Finished Object but it's not a Fully Finished Object as we still have V-Z to stitch but it remains a UFO in the picture!

Progress on Joan Elliott's 12 Days is slow as the Small Boy has decided a 30 second dip in the water is sufficient and then another 10 minutes of being told "Back in the bath".  So no photos until I have stitched this month's block 4 Calling Birds.

My two Sew Many Stitches projects are going well.  In March I started 23 Just Nan Smalls and the plan is to stitch 30-a-day on one until it is finished and then move on to the next one.  I should average one a month that way.  The first is smaller than average so will be a nice quick finish.

Here we have the first six days of Christmas Rose (the first photo is two days' progress not one)

Meanwhile Spring in the Square is in it's 95th day!  950 stitches looks like this:


And the full 95 days looks like this:

That last big box is intentionally blank to keep the proportions of the other boxes the same!

Finally, we have exciting events coming up - my 6th Blogaversary this weekend and the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop the following weekend.  And of course, more Bloggers of the Week each Friday.  Life is just one long social whirl!

That's quite the philosophical question Jo! The block is very cool. Is it really 95 days already on the just nan piece? It's fascinating to see how it's grown. I must get my Easter stitching done.

Cute, little UFO! :D

Katie said...

LOL. I'm so confused but it's a pretty block anyway. Love your other pieces. So much fun watching them grow like that.

Awesome progress Jo. What a difference 30 stitches a day makes. They look great.

What a title.. ha ha. These small blocks are very deceptive, you would think I can finish them in few hrs looking at the size, but no sometimes they take days.Wow, are those really 950 stitches?
Looking fwd to the blogaversary and easter blog hop posts.

Confusing but cool block! The flying saucer looks great with all the sparkle & beads.

What a cute UFO! And I really enjoy those picture-each-day things, it's so much fun to see your projects grow!

You are one busy girl! Keep up the good work!

Susan said...

Very cute finish. I have the charts saved, but no plans for immediate stitching. I also have Spring in the Square in the stash, I hope to get to that one sooner rather than later.

Karen said...

That title got me thinking! Love the progress you're making and Spring in the Square is such a lovely design. Enjoy your stitching time. Karen x
