I've been working on a list of my personal UFOs and it always scares me when I do this. I think of the money invested, and the time invested, and the space invested. Yikes!!
Here is what I've come up with in the last few evenings of contemplation:
- Cream block set (blocks are done, I like them, but what to make?)
- Snowman table runner (top is done, needs quilting)
- Boxed Squares (blocks are half done)
- Rail fence (20" squares are done, needs to become something)
- X-Blocks (blocks are done, needs to become something)
- Flannel sampler (blocks are done, partially put together with the sashing)
- Red, white, black sampler (needs more blocks)
- Count On It monthly mini quilts (need to finish Dec., Feb., Aug.)
- Purple Dresden plates (too much purple involved in this one, maybe add some golds?)
- Dr. Seuss baby quilt (cut out and ready to sew)
Every one of these projects has been set aside with a reason. In some cases I finished the blocks but don't know what to use them for. In others (purple Dresden plates) I decided I didn't like it as I worked on it. In the case of the flannel sampler, I just hate sewing on flannel.
Adding these projects onto my WIP list is really overwhelming! So . . . now what? I need to pick something from this list that I feel would be easy to finish and JUST DO IT. How about alternating my projects - finish a WIP, then work on a UFO. A girl needs a plan, right?
