UFOs. Nothing to do with science fiction or outer space but Unfinished Objects or projects. MJ had so many bins of started-but-not-finished undertakings that one of the bins fell off and hit her in the head! Roxie came up with idea of a new group to meet and finish off crocheting, knitting, cross stitch and even woodworking it turned out. Few rules and a place to meet with some snacks started them off and a year later there were at least five additional groups and hundreds of projects that had been happily completed.

But this is not just about a group of women and men who have fun getting together and accomplishing something they thought would hang around their closets for year. No, this is about a group of friends who live their lives to the fullest, depending on the Lord and being open (at least most times) to the many changes that occur as we get a little older. New friendships, new ideas, some sadness, too, of course, all make up Half Finished by Lauraine Snelling.
