UFOs . . . and other unfinished objects.

No, not flying saucers. Also known as Unfinished Objects. You know the ones; those projects that sit lurking in the shadows of your creative space, mocking you every time you reach for new materials to begin new projects, “Please finish me,” or “Just hack me up and use my parts for something else!”

They collect dust and sit in canasters and baskets with other UFOs. Maybe you’re like me when you catch a glimpse of a UFO. You shiver and make a mental note to rid of it soon. But then you’re humming away happily as you weave or string or wire your next project. Oh, how quickly we put those nasty creatures out of our minds.

Well, I couldn’t take it anymore. It was time to face these creatures head on! One by one I scissored and clipped and reorganized the materials. I even accomplished completing a UFO. I now feel a sense of serenity and peace.
