I have had a lovely relaxing morning catching up on blogs.  I dont feel guilty in the least for whiling away the hours like this as my car is waiting for a new battery to be put in, meaning I can't go anywhere, and I cannot get in the kitchen as my DH is working in there.  Although I know I enjoy writing in my blog I had forgotton how much I enjoyed seeing what others are up to - of course all the stitching, but also the work of those other clever people who actually manage to turn their stitching into wonderful little gifts.  I also love to see the other crafts people do, card making, quilting and real sewing.  Christine makes the most wonderful gifts from old teatowels and tablecloths etc.

After studing my 7 UFOs I narrowed it down to 5 - discounting the other two as they had so little done on them that them will be almost like having a new start. So here are the ones I have and would like your help in deciding which to bring into the mix first.

1. Gracious Era started January 2004

2. The Quiltmaker started February 2005

3. Fairies at the Bottom of my Garden started May 2005

4. Hardanger Everyday House started July 2007
a little hard to see what I have done on this one but there is quite a bit done.

5. EMS Garden Alphabet started about January 2007

Well that is the five UFO's so please comment and tell me which you think I should work on next. 

Before I go I would like to show you a beautiful hand made card, not made by me but for me on Mothers day by my lovely daughter.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my posts and especially to those who take the time to comment, its so much appreciated.

Hugs to you all
May your frogs stay in their ponds.

Hi Helen, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment.
I have to say, I love everyone of your WIPs. I have a soft spot for Fairies at the bottom of my garden, I have it in my stash as well but haven't gotten around to it yet.
So many stitches, so little time!

Tough choice. I think I'd go for the Hardanger House.
Thank you for the kind comment by the way

We all have UFOs, the longest time it ever took from start to finish for me was 17 years!!!! I started a sampler in 1989 and finished it in 2006. I love the quilt maker a lot.
