FO and UFO

This is the finished object. My mother has given me an early birthday present and finished quilting my Carolina Cross Roads quilt. As a matter of fact she enjoyed the pattern so much that she made a baby quilt with it and is thinking about offering it as a mystery in Bonnie's sense to her quilt group.

This is the UFO, the first of my cross stitch projects I want to finish for the UFO challenge at Stitching Fingers. I have finished the ground yesterday, so now the tree can grow. Maybe I can get this finished in time for fall. I have the magazine with the companion fall tree, but will need a break in between. Among other things this is just one of my UFOs.

Wonderful! Well done both of you on your lovely CC!

Wunderschöner Quilt!
Und danke für den Tip mit dem auf Papier nähen. Darauf bin ich gar nicht gekommen!
Dein Ufo wird sicher bald keins mehr sein.
Ich habe ja schon etwas Angst, dass ich mich auf diese Ufo-Sache eingelassen habe. Jetzt muß ich tatsächlich an diese Gardine ran ;-)

The quilt is amazing. The cross stitch is coming on too. Look forward to seeing the progress. I have got as far as finding mine!
