I have tons of fuppies. You know, those stitched projects where the stitching is completed but not yet framed, ornamented, or otherwise finished with a capital “F”.
Finished Unfinished Projects. FUPs. Only I say “fuppies” because it sounds way nicer than “fups” or “fuppers”, which can be easily misunderstood. Like if you have a particularly wide piece and call it a “fat fup”, or when there’s a bunch of “little fuppers” to take care of. You know.
I keep them all in my Fuppie Box– a big, flat cardboard box about 2″ tall that slides completely under my computer desk so I can easily forget about how many projects there are that I meant to do something with…
The ones above need to be framed. I have the frames for them but I need to find the time to make myself actually do the framing. I hate framing. I’d almost rather pick hair out of the bathtub drain. Almost.
These are going in my stitching scrapbook:
I have some from exchanges, too. I’m thinking about starting a new scrapbook for those. Of course, I’ve been thinking about that for years so who knows if I’ll ever follow through on it?
I have to admit I was surprised when I pulled these out the other day… I didn’t realize there were so many! I sorted them into stacks on the kitchen table and planned some finishes for them, and let them sit there for a day while I planned more finishes, and let them sit there for yet another day, and so on, until almost 4 days had gone by and nothing had been finished at all. They’re all back in the box now.
