UFOs & WIPs

December 31/13 - In light of my 2014 Word of the Year, FINISH, it is time to update and prioritize my UFO and WIP list.  As usual, I have moved my finished projects to the bottom, but soon they will have their own page!

****************************

April 15/13 - Judy of Patchwork Times is hosting a UFO parade today so I figured it was time to update my list.  I have failed on my commitment to not start any new projects until I finish at least five on my original list, so I've added more since my last update - as of today I have 48 unfinished objects!

**************************** 

December 22/12 - Since I had already made up my mind to finish 2 projects before I start a new one, I've decided that I'm joining the 2013: Year of the Finished Project as well as continuing working on UFOs on Sunday afternoons.

****************************

August 27/12 - As I was getting ready for a garage sale, Leah Day of The Free Motion Project announced a new challenge, a weekly UFO day.  Starting August 27, she has designated Sundays as "Work on your UFO day" and she will have a Linky Party for what we have all accomplished.  Perfect timing!

****************************
I'm setting up this page (if I can figure it out!) so I can list all my UFOs (UnFinished Objects) and WIPs (Works in Progress) in one place, have links to their related posts, thereby tracking my progress and celebrate my finishes.


Eventually, I want to have links on each name so I can go back and just see the posts related to that quilt.  I think I need to learn more about blogger before I do that!

Here it is - in no particular order until I review the project and determine where I am at.  As I pull each project, I'll add a photo of its current state, what needs to be done next or what is stopping me from moving forward, and put it in the order I'd like to get it done.  I am also committing to no new projects until I finish at least five on this list.   Big fat fail - I've added my newest UFOs just before the Finished Projects list - at this point, nothing is a Work-in-Progress!  Finished projects will appear at the bottom for the time being, I'm contemplating another page for those if I get enough done.
