Biscornus and humbugs

I've been sidetracked again from my UFO's, but not for long. The Australian sampler is waiting on my sewing table, not in the basket on the floor. That is a good sign, because the basket on the floor is where I toss things that won't be looked at in the near future, whereas if a project is on the table, it is in my face, so to speak.
What have I been doing? Putting together the biscornu from Pam Kellogg's pattern, and starting a Humbug, which I will be swapping with Jane in England. These little ornies are just right to have as a distraction from wading through the UFOs, which are not my choice of stitching as you will understand. But having made a commitment to myself for this year, I will keep plodding along with them. And it does feel good when another one is finished, and the guilt factor is very slightly reduced each time.
