still counting

Not much has happened in regards to my optimistic UFO plans, but we do wanna start the new year with a good laugh, right? So here is one that definitely belongs in the category what-was-I-thinking.
Beautiful super soft yarn, though...
It sits next to the couch ready to be frogged.

This dress top for the girlie in my favorite orange is done, ends woven in, straps attached.

Skirt fabric is picked (the one on the right), still needs to be attached. You see my good excuse why I could not get to work on that - ironing board occupied!

This vest should have never ended up in a box. But it did. I finished it in two hours. TWO!

It is awesome, long, fuzzy and soft.
Comes with the perfect vintage button, too.

Last but not least these coasters, that are meant to be a gift for a friend. Not really UFOs since I have not been working on them for long.

I had originally meant to use leftover noodles, but in the end that did not work. My selection did not have enough variety, and some of the colors I stripped specifically for this.

For twenty-twelve I wish all of you lots of time with color, fabric, string or whatever makes you tick, for creativity, with your art.
And I wish you love in your lives, lots of it!
