Procrastinator's Challenge

Here's the Challenge ladies - get out all of those unfinished projects, you know the ones I'm talking about - they stare at you pleading to be finished as the guilt gnaws away at you! This is my stash of projects and I hate to admit that a couple of them are over 2 years old! My stash includes:

1. Backing a denim throw that I made for my middle child. One of those projects that's been sitting for 2 years.

2. A basket that has been sitting for 6 months - I made a mistake in the curling pattern and I have to tear it out.

3. A reindeer cross stitch ornament that needs to be made into a pillow

4. A blackbird cross stitch sampler that I've had in my work basket for over 2 years.

5. A punch needle rooster from Create and Decorate that I started many months ago and stopped working on

6. Long skinny stocking from The Pickled Pepper Patch

7. Santa from Moonchild's Primitives that I never got done before Christmas

8. Santa from Tennessee Ridge Primitives

9. Bunny Hugs shelf sitter

10. Primitive Woolens Stitchery from Mercantile Gatherings.

The guidelines for the Procrastinator's Challenge are as follows:

1. Take a photo of your projects or make a list and email them to me at with Procrastinator's challenge in the title. I will email you back that I received your entry. If you don't hear back from me, leave me a comment on my blog. Sometimes my junk folder gets ahold of emails that I really want! The deadline for entry is January 11th.

2. As you finish projects up email me a photo and I will post them in my blog for all to see. I'll keep a running tally to spur you on to motivation.

3. The challenge will end on February 8th. I have prizes for the top 2 finishers.

Let's start 2009 out with a bang!

  2. Hello...from PA, I just found your blog from Primitive Betty's and what a great job you did on the stitchery! I to do them and enjoy them so much but right now I'm working on a penny rug mat that I'm teaching myself how to do:0 Yikes!!! it's hard to get all those stitches to look good anyway stop by and for a visit! Oh, and read my very first post...the name of my blog is something to do with my dad too♥

  4. What a great idea! My problem is that my UFO's are large (like hooked rugs) so I would be lucky to get even one completed by February. But I'll look around and see what other UFO's I have hidden. I know they are there! I just became a "follower" so I could easily see what everyone comes up with. Happy New Year!

  14. Hello from a fellow Ohioan! What a great challenge! Too bad I'm too late for it though. Maybe the I can join in the next one you do. Although that would mean digging out all my projects and putting them in one place and that alone would take days! :0)
