This is one of my "oldest UFO". I think I started a few stitches about 8 - 10 years ago. I can't remember exact year but it was a gift to me from my mother. I decided to join Evaline's "Oldest UFO" challenge 2012 to encourage me to finish this lovely design. The designer is Tom Taylor.
I just finished stitching the dinosaur from World of Cross-Stitching magazine to "finish" as a pajama bag for my youngest grandson. The fabric is a collection of dinosaurs. The drawstring has lining inside which I follow the tutorial from the internet.

I am starting to enjoy my sewing machine and making coasters is a good way to get back into the groove. This is a coaster with dog's paws. The left photo is the back of the coaster and the right photo is the front. Jolihen, from the Stitcher's Village is teaching me how to make coasters.

A long time ago, I joined Helga Mendal's Mystery SAL and when I finished stitching her design, I put it in my drawer to decide what finishing I wanted to do. I finally decided to make it into a pajama bag for my RV since we travel during the summer. The bag says "back on the road again". I made another pajama bag for my DH using travel signs fabric in the States.
I am stitching motifs for 3 wicker baskets. My grandson is almost 3 years old so I needed to stitch motifs of what is inside the wicker basket. This one will have mittens only inside. (Photo on the right) The second one will have a scarves only motif and the third one will have toques only motif. He will be able to take the basket from the shelves to get what he wants without taking all of the basket down and dump them on the floor to find what he wants.
