On My Desk ........on a Wednesday

On My Desk today is an unfinished object (UFO)


It's been a UFO for about a month now because I'm hand stitching the felt and vinyl flowers (and it takes fooooorrrreeevvver)!

If I ever finish this one, it's going to be made into a new apron for me.

Ah yes the "by hand" bit always takes so long but worth it in the end. These flowers look terrific.

Handsewing vinyl doesn't sound like a whole lot of fun, but I'm sure the result will be great!! Looking good already!

Hand sewing felt and vinyl...I think I feel a headache coming on. Nice color combos tho. So in September we see the apron?!?!?

Looking forward to seeing the UFO as a FO! It's looking great.

Hey, dumb question time... I've never really worked with felt before (except on a Miss Buttons) - can you just cut it out and stitch it to something without worrying about finishing or securing the edges? (I really am game asking this... but you don't know what you don't know hey?)

Those flowers are stunning. Can't wait to see the finished item. (And I'm very jealous of your pincushion collection - I stick my pins in my shirt when I'm sewing)
