Welcome to the UFO blog hop!
Karen at Baublicious has organized a Facebook group, as well as a blog hop, focused on completing at least one unfinished object (UFO). I signed up in mid-January, and in the interest of honesty will report I didn't actually stitch a bead down until three days ago.
I've had this UFO for a couple of years. I love the
cabochon, and had a box I was going to glue the finished piece to. But, for some
reason, it remained frozen as you see it for at least two years.
Rummaging through my box of UFO's about a month ago I realized the problem was
the oval shape I cut the foundation out of.
Then, along came some love. Marcia DeCoster started a new blog called Bead Love. In her inaugural post, she elucidated the mission:
"I felt some of the joy slipping away from me this year as I watched
world events and I wanted to find a way to put as much love into the
universe as I could"
I am a firm believer in love. When I saw the post from Feb 21, "Amor" by Anne Hesse I knew what had to be done.
Whew, one down! I think it would be fun to make a few more hearts, and put them together to form a big piece. Maybe this one is next.
Congratulations to everyone who brought a UFO into the light of day. It's not always an easy thing to do. Here is the list of the brave and hardy souls. I'm anxious to read about everyone's journey.
