Iron Craft #22: UFOs

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.

I know, I love this challenge because it does make you do something you already have. You'll have to show it to us when it's done.
