When I pack to go south for the winter, I often throw in a few UFOs to work on. I usually have a short attention span so a whole big project probably wouldn't keep my interest but UFOs usually only have a little bit left to finish.
I unearthed this needlepoint project last year and did a lot of work on it.
I bought 3 of these seasonal Heart in Hand kits at Judy's Stitchery in Harlingen last year or the year before and puttered away on them. I am missing one of the floss colours which I'll pick up next shopping trip. There are little charms and buttons with each kit. I brought two others to finish. I like to hang the finished pieces in my front hall and swap them out with the changing seasons.
