WIP Quest Revisit a UFO

#1

Post by Sirithre »

Setting
Your time in Stitchwind has introduced you to some amazing things. Your fellow Guild members have, on more than one occasion, shown you new projects, sometimes even sending along ones they know you’d specifically love.

You return to your Guild after a day in the markets, a new project in hand, and head up to your room. You are energized for a new project and set immediately to organizing the floss and preparing your fabric.

Just as you settle in to start, you notice something sitting on the shelf in the corner.

An old unfinished project.

Your heart sinks a little. You remember having as much excitement for the unfinished project as you have for the new project in your lap. You set aside the new project and retrieve the old one from the shelf. The thread that had once been all kitted up was now gone, picked through for other projects.

Filled with a new resolve, you decide to work on the unfinished project. Maybe not finish it, but give it some love and attention.


Your Quest
It's time to pull out those abandoned projects. The ones you started a while ago and got distracted by something else and just haven't found the time to get back to it.

If you don't have a UFO, you could choose to start a pattern you've had in your stash for a while and just never got around to starting. Or you could just continue to work on your current project~ Up to you!

The general goal is just to not have to pick up new materials right now, and to feel a bit of productivity.

We are *not* expecting a finish photo! It's gonna be mostly WIPs. But if you manage to finish up an old project that's cool too.

Just set aside 2 hours (or more) to work on your project of choice.
Note that there is also an 'Unfinished Business' quest which is specifically your oldest UFO. You can work on that one again or pick another long forgotten project of yours. :biggrin:

Turn In
All done? Reply here with your before and after photo(s), why this project got put aside for a while, and whether you'll be continuing it next month or putting it away again.

If you did this quest back in May 2020 on the discord feel free to re-submit the piece you did then, stitch a new one, or both!

Once you've turned in your project, please wait patiently. A council member will assign you the appropriate item soon. :)

Example! I originally stitched this in 2020 as part of this quest when the RPG was still done mostly on the discord server.

This is the HAED pattern 'Rainforest Fairy', original art by Linda Ravenscroft. It doesn't seem to be available on the site anymore though.

I started it... oh, nearly 20 years ago and it lies untouched for 5+ years at a time.
I immediately put it back away after this. I pick it up every few years just to be reminded of how much I dislike linen, confetti, and full coverage stitches. :biggrin:
Luckily I did this on 28 count with tent stitches, so it goes by much faster. But still. This small bit took SIX HOURS, and believe it or not used 5 colors. (no that beige is not one solid block. it's like... checkerboarded. But not even consistently. Just... speckled. Bleh.

See you again in 2 years, I guess. When I can get into some of the fun bits.

Farming Magic SAL by Flossy Fox Shop

It takes me like 3 days tops to do a Farming Magic part usually but unfortunately Baldur's Gate 3 came out. And I'm moving house. I'll probably finish it after that but right now it sits next to my bed judging me.

This is my second oldest WIP, started October 2020, forgotten for a few years, and I only started working on it again a few weeks ago. I FINALLY got to COLOR and now I just want to keep going to find more COLOR. (HAED Castle View by Alexandra Gavrilova)

This was a little over 2 leisurely hours: 276 stitches for a total of 4.78%

I finished my one and only UFO! At least, the embroidery part… I still need to trim the ends, iron the heck out of it, apply a backing, and sew it onto my coat.

This is a kit from Etsy seller BlackbirdsandRabbits.

This is so lovely! Congrats on your finish! :)

And don't worry, Finishing and Fully Finishing are very different things. :biggrin:
