UFO's are starting to disappear

We had a bit of a damp weekend in Hobart so rather than getting out in the garden I had some stitching time. I pulled out a UFO, a half completed stitchery that I started over 18 months ago. I finished off the stitchery and added the flying geese borders. I'm so pleased with how it turned out, now it just needs wadding, backing, quilting and binding.
This wonderful project is called "Mayfield Country Sampler" by Gail Pan, it was Australian Homespun No. 58 Vol. 9 No. 3.
If you have a chance pop over here to see another little sewing caddy I made. The pattern is called "Ruby Brown's Sewing Caddy" by Polly's Keepsakes, I'm trying to locate where the pattern can be bought, stay tuned and hopefully I'll have some info for you soon.

I just love the bag you made and sent Jenny for her birthday! I'll be checking back later to see if you've located the pattern source! Your latest completed UFO is just gorgeous! I feel inspired. ~karen

Jo,
What a lovely sampler! And isn't it a wonderful feeling to actually get a UFO completed? For me, a UFO will languish in a drawer for months or years, then you pull it out and fall in love with it all over again - especially when it's done!

Happy quilting,
Susan
