This and That

I've had family here for the last week but I have made some progress on my cross stitch and have finished the letters E and J, so I'm pleased that I'm working my way through this UFO.
Today I also made a pair of PJ pants and another skirt for my DD and have a lot more fabric she has designated for more clothing. (LOL) which I'm hoping to make progress with this week.
I also found a donated set of QAYG blocks made in the rail fence pattern. There were 16 made blocks in the set as well as quite a lot of fabric for more blocks, so I made enough to finish a quilt with 24 blocks, set 4 x 6.
I should have that one finished tomorrow as well as more crocheted items so I've been happy with the finishes as well as spending time with family. There is more rain predicted so it should be good weather for quilting for some time yet and with air conditioning I can't say that the heat of summer slows down production too much.
Hope you're all enjoying some time working on Works in Progress (WIPs) and well as choosing a UnFinished Object (UFO) to complete. I plan to finish the current cross stitch sampler until it's finished and then select another stalled project to finish off.
Hugs, Jan Mac

When did you start the cross stitch piece? I bought a kit for it over twenty years ago and never even started stitching it. I haven't thought about it in years but seeing yours reminded me that it's still waiting. It will be lovely when finished and framed.
