OK, I'm actually joining in with Joy this month to show that I am finishing a few UFO's & stash busting too.
First finish photo.

Second and third.
I know these have both been on recently. They both now have binding & are finished.
They come from my stash busting efforts. One jelly roll, white background fabric, a beautiful rose fabric I purchased as I loved it, and plenty of black leftover scraps.
I'm trying to be creative with the photos. Have I been successful? Not too sure about that, as I can't seem to find anywhere to photograph them.

The cupcake crochet rug from Attic 24 finally finished. DD bought me the pack of wool, last Mother's Day & when it arrived all the way from Wool Warehouse in UK, I was so excited, I nearly hugged the parcel delivery man. (I didn't). It came along slowly until the hot weather hit, then I slowed to halt at the border. Just too hot over the lap, but as our nights have cooled, it came out and, yes, it is done. Closeup so you can see the dainty striped edging.
Hubby made this little sign (trying to tell me something I don't do well), & I said I would paint it. Oh dear, it languished colourless for a couple of months till last Wednesday, when out came my paints & now sits proudly above a photo collage frame of my blogging friends who keep watch over me whilst sewing. Thank you all for being here for me.
Well sort of a finish!!!!!
They were made this morning, using a combination of 2 recipes, due to lack of buttermilk & vegetable oil. We tried one each this afternoon & Hubby announced they were yummy & light, so I'll write the recipe down, so I can use it again.
Maybe not all stitching, but definitely all waiting to be done.
I am having a little giveaway to anyone who comments on my blog between now and Sunday 9th April. I will draw a winner on the 10th (grandson B2's 11th birthday). It is to celebrate my 4th blog anniversary,(Jan this year), 40th wedding anniversary & also my first quilt made 40 years ago too.
Whilst sitting here composing this, there has been more news of the devastation cyclone Debbie has left in her wake as she now travels down the coast of New South Wales. Definitely a big storm which has hurt so much Queensland & NSW.
I'll leave it there for now.
Take care all, Susan.
