2017 UFO Challenge

I am joining in on the UFO Challenge posted online at All People Quilt.  We'll see how this goes, as I seem to be too easily distracted these days. Maybe I need to resurrect my 2015 word of the year, which was FOCUS, or my 2016 word SIMPLIFY.

As I worked on an inventory of UFOs, WIPs, and PIGS Sunday morning I tried to determine which projects I wanted finished the most. This little list of 12 projects is a drop in the bucket of things in my overall inventory.  But it's a start, right?  And since 6 was the first number drawn, I will work on the 2 identical Easter Sunrise runners I am making for my daughters. That will be in between working on the Bonnie Hunter mystery, my Saturday Sampler, Farm Girl Vintage, and whatever else strikes my fancy. 

In 2015 and 2016 I did finish a lot of UFO projects, but I like to start new things even more than I like finishing old things I guess. So, as a blog friend said in her recent post, I need to remember that "it's the process that I love".  So true Lori - thanks for the reminder.  So, I plan to embrace 2017 with some enthusiasm.

  1. Looks like a manageable list. I have confidence you'll finish these and other UFOs during the year.

    I saw the BHmystery reveal photo. It's a gorgeous quilt.

  2. I just finished my list and I need to get working, since my 6 is still in the beginning stages.
