Fully Finished February

An FFO is a “Fully Finished Object!” This means that our stitchy projects have been completely finished, whether they are framed, decorated, and ready to be put on display! Finishing your stitched art can take some time, and it is definitely going the extra mile. Sometimes life gets so busy that our UFO’s (Un-finished Objects) never become FFO’s!

Well for February 2021, we are trying to stay on top of all our cross stitch projects and Fully Finish them…ALL! This month we compiled our Top 5 Finishing Videos that you can use to finish all those stitched pieces you have! You can also find more of our cross stitch finishing videos on our Fat Quarter Shop FlossTube Channel. Make February the month to FFO your UFO’s!
