Sew Weekly: Unfinished Business!

My week:

1. Dig around in the old Sewing Room for that UFO (AKA Unfinished Object) for the Sew Weekly Theme Week.

 2. Find the dress and material all tidily cut out, and folded up into little pieces around a bodice that is almost finished! Thank you old me!

3. Discover ANOTHER UFO, cut out by Old Me (she now has a sentence case status) because Old Me thought that New Me needed an extra project... but it's a really simple project, so Old Me knew that New Me is kinda time poor. But needed to use up that extra fabric of the Fruit Salad Tablecloth!

4. Old Me forgot to set aside a zipper though, so luckily New Me found one in the stash that totally matches and is the right size!

Confused? Old Me would be, but not New Me.


Do you have UFOs? This is probably my only one, so I'm very glad for it this week. I tend to complete a garment all the way through, but cut corners on the buttons or hems, so they could be considered UFO, but are kinda wearable, so who knows.


  1. I haven't been to visit for a while so I just wanted to say hello.

    I think I'm going to start sewing because I still can't knit. Once I do, I'll be going through your archives for inspiration!


  2. I have four, two of which I don't think I can finish due to my skill level. I'm working on one as I write and have finished two this Spring. Finishing UFOs and using my stash is my project for the Spring.

  3. I've got 2 UFOs - both button-down shirts that would be very cute finished. I've just let them languish in a drawer - must get some enthusiasm to finish!!

  4. Yes, I have UFO, my boyfriend shirt, I never finished it till now, and The Fruit Salad is lovely! :)

  5. You are so funny! My Old Me was enormously selfish,and only left MASSIVE ufo's like whole quilts that need quilting (one year, minimum) and petit point embroideries that take more patience than I have nowadays...!
    Can't wait to see your fruit salad dress, sounds promising!


Thanks for being awesome and a total darling, leave a message!
