I have been able to complete two of my five identified UFOs. One was the teaching piece from last year's ANG Seminar in Chicago. I changed the color a bit, it has a hint of pink, rather than the hint of beige that the teacher planned. Shortly after finishing the piece, we learned that Pat Donaldson, the teacher, had died. I also changed several of the drawn thread rows.. I had set it aside with all the stitching done except for the needleweaving column on the left, that was new to me and for some reason I thought it would take a long time. Once I picked the piece back up and started needleweaving, it only took about six hours to complete the piece. Here it is in all its glory!

And now for something completely different: the second piece I've completed so far this year. Can you guess the designer's name without reading the caption?

In between those two big pieces, I stitched a bookmark. I picked up the kit in the gift shop at Westminster Abbey on our 2011 cruise.
