Frog or Finish Nine for 2019

Over at Beads and Barnacles Pippa’s been getting organised with Make Nine and Use Nine grids. She’s inspired me to make a grid of nine projects I want to frog or finish this year. I know I’m a bit late in the year for posting my UFOs, and I know I usually just list them, but a grid makes a nice visual reminder and is a manageable number. So here’s my Frog or Finish Nine for 2019…

  1. We’ve already discussed this this year – it’s the patchwork quilt.
  2. Two project bags that just need handles.
  3. A Santa sack that just needs sewing up.
  4. An almost finished cardigan that I just need a friend’s opinion how the opening should sit to finish.
  5. A crochet top that has to be frogged – my thumb’s too sore to crochet these days 😦
  6. A pair of socks.
  7. A too boring shawl that needs frogging.
  8. A shawl that needs blocking – it’s always so damp in Dartmoor, I never want to deliberately make something wet just to dry it off.
  9. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll recognise this UFO – I’m still wrestling with myself; I don’t seem to like it enough to finish it, but can’t quite bring myself to frog it!

In truth I could finish 7/9 of these in and evening if I frogged number 9. Let’s see how long it actually takes me.

Until next time,

Photographing Projects

I’ve been waiting ages to photograph the remaining project bags that I didn’t sell at Chagford Show two weeks ago. I like to take project photographs outside to get the better light and I find the plants give a better backdrop. However every time I’ve had a moment to photograph the project bags, it’s either been brilliant sunshine or rain. Being Dartmoor, of course it’s been mostly rain.
