Pink Saturday....UFO's


Spaceships and little green men? Nope. I'm talking about those Un-Finished Objects. Do you have any of those? I love to create and make things. Ideas come from everywhere, blogland is especially dangerous territory for this!! I have so many different projects going ALL the time...and AT THE SAME TIME! Some get finished, some get set aside for "later". Some just didn't turn out and get rejected.

I like to get things DONE. So, why do I have such a large collection of UFO's? That is a mystery.



This pink "purse" (or what may end up being a purse eventually) is my latest example. It was inspired by a purse that someone else made, and hers was Darling!! So, I bought the fabric, got some vague instructions, got home and put it in the "later" pile. Almost a YEAR later, I decided to jump in and give it a try. I loved making it, the "tags" were my favorite part, so of course, I put too many on it. I pulled through mostly Pink ones, making it more of a pink purse. Then I ran out of fabric....guess it's finished!! I can't find fabric for the lining. Etc Etc.

It's in the later pile. Haven't given up exactly...just put it off til later.



Are you looking for a fun way to spend your Saturday?? Take the Pink Tour! Go to Beverly's and get the scoop on .....

  1. Stephanie! I have been wanting to knit or crochet for a couple of weeks! Yes, I know where there are instructions for this. Woo Hoo! Thanks for reminding me. I love it. (My video is playing for me, don't know what's up with that.)

  2. Stephanie, Thanks for dropping by my blog - glad you liked the asian necklace.
    Gotta say this purse is luscious - the colors are so rich and vibrant...

    I too have lots of UFOs - as you say one of the hazards of blogland (don't you just love all the things that you can look at out there in cyberspace)

    Can't believe you have got 2 grandkids - you are a gorgeous grandma x

  5. Stephanie, it looks like it could be just darling. I think I would be grabbing it out of that to-do pile and hopping on that project. It could be a great purse for spring! Very cute, even in its unfinished condition. Finish the project says she who has a whole room of unfinished projects to do. LOL! ;-)

    Happy Pink Monday...

    XO,

  10. The pink purse looks like it will be wonderful!
    I have several stacks of unfinished projects. I'm convinced I have "crafting A.D.D".
    In other areas of my life, I'm very focused, but when it comes to sewing projects...forget it. LOL
