This week's Iron Craft challenge:
"With the holidays with all its projects and commitments are looming, so this seems like a good time for a UFO challenge. Scary I know! But we all have them hidden away in our craft room, shoved behind a couch or tucked away in a closet. (cue ominous music) Those Unfinished Objects!!!!" (Courtesy of Just Crafty Enough)
I have several of these unfinished projects lurking around my house. But Logan has been bugging me and bugging me about one in particular.
So I took it up and made a decent sized dent in finishing it.
It all started after I finished Lane's scrap rug. Logan wanted one too. One with his name on it.
I made an OK start on it.
I started filling in the letters.
But then I stopped. Like for a year....
Until this challenge came along. I worked on it A LOT these past two weeks. I mean 14 or 15 hours worth at least. Phew!
And this is how far I've gotten.
Cutting and tying each individual square is a lot of work. But it's starting to look really good! :D
And I'm totally going to keep going. Until it's finished.
I think I just needed this challenge to light a fire under me and get me going again.
