Eight Eight Oh Eight

Back in February 06, Melissa needed help finishing a project so we decided to become one at a time stitchers for the duration of the winter games. She's doing it again. I thought this may be my opportunity to finally bead the Toy Gatherer. The last time we saw Toy Gatherer back in May 2006 I had finished the stitching, a mere 11 years after I started it. (Talk about a UFO.) So two years later and I still haven't beaded the stupid thing. But beginning 08.08.08 I will work on this until the last medal is handed out in Beijing.

Good luck! I'm joining in too - haven't decided which UFO yet, there are rather a number to choose from...

Great idea for goal setting, good luck!

Good for you! Can't wait to see it finished. Maybe one of these days I too will stitch.

Love the design but eww--beading. I hate beading. I'd have lost all the parts by now (my old UFOs seem to be missing a lot of stuff).

Maybe I should join this movement and make a push at finishing Celtic Christmas? Would be nice to have her off the scroll frames that she's been on since, what?, 1998? Oh my. I guess she's the one.

You go, girl. I shall sit back and be directed by my muse. (This is my excuse for having absolutely no self discipline. It's my story, and I'm sticking to it!)

What a great idea! I wish I had A/C, I would totally do this.

Good luck! I know you can finish this one up for good and knock it off of your list.
