another project i have to complete! UFO"S everywhere

while packing up I found a few UFO's (unfinished objects), but this one i really should finish. I started a scraps quilt about a month ago, i gathered all my scraps, bits and pieces and cut them into strips, to make a single bed strip quilt for the angel/monster... but... i had so many scraps (don't tell anyone), I just kept sewing and it kept growing, the top 2 were my first 2 squares, and i got sort of.. well ... addicted to sewing them together and with in 3 days i had created a monster! (and i haven't touched it since, im actually a little scared and overwhelmed by the size of it) It will now fit on our king size bed!. I have the middle strip fabric and the border and back fabric, i even have the cotton bamboo filling to go in, i just have to put the whole thing together then try and tackle quilting it!, I think i will have if professionally done, I don't think there is any way i can manoeuvre something that big around my singer sewing machine!
soon....soon..
And then there is this gorgeous bag of bamboo cotton i bought, a bargain a ball at just $1.00 each, i had all the intentions of knitting a cute bright cushion for the lounge, but, it never got done!, so now i have handed it on to my mum, hopefully when it is all knitted she will give it back! ... ah one can hope!
