Update on a UFO

Here is a small update on Gathering Eggs from Mirabilia. I pulled this out of my UFO tote and decided that I needed some bright colors. I have been stitching smalls and samplers so much lately that this project is just what I need to cure the boredom I have been feeling. I have enjoyed putting these few stitches in and can't wait to keep going. We'll see how long I can last. Maybe I just need to start a rotation, AND STICK WITH IT. Hope to have some more updates later in the week. The first pic was how it looked when I picked it back up, the second pic is a couple days of stitching. Stitching time is severely limited these days with another baby in the house. I have been stitching mostly at nap time (I should be napping too...), and a little at night (I should be sleeping then too).
Hope you've all have a great day.
Happy Stitching,


  1. you have made great progress on it. It is really looking good. Love the bright colors! I can totally relate to the feelings of 'should be napping or sleeping when the baby sleeps. We just got done with 12 days of our triplet grandsons being here. (11 months)I ended up using nap time to stitch myself!

  2. Hi Hillery! Love your blog and your UFO. I happen to have Gathering Eggs in a UFO drawer somewhere. It is such a beautiful piece...maybe your stitching will inspire me :)thanks for sharing,

  3. You're making progress! I love this design and have it hanging in my upstairs hallway :o)

  4. I love your UFO. It would definitely be a fun one to stitch with those cheery colors. Hope that you can find a rotation that works for you. I try and always fail. I'm more of one of those people that works on a project for a while and drops it - not good.

  5. Hi, I've just discovered your blog. You've made some good progress on your UFO, I'm looking forward to watching it grow. I've never been very good with rotations, just stitch on whatever takes my fancy from the vast number of WIP's and UFO's that I have.
