A few BFF's and I have decided that with the new year coming that we need to finish up some old UFO's.
Of course, if you go back to my December posts of previous years you'll see that I pretty much do this every year but I don't always manage to accomplish the goal :) HOWEVER, this year the word "Obscene" has cropped up in my conversations not only with my friends but in my head...you know those conversations "WOW, this has been sitting here since when? 2007? Oh my....and you have how much red fabric? WHAT? it fills a 10 gallon rubbermaid bin? OH lordy!" You know those kinds of conversations!
So, hence comes the 2013 UFO challenge to myself!
I pulled out the 2 bins of projects, pulled the 20 or so projects and put 9 on the list. I had to be realistic and not pull out 1 for each month....I have a wedding shower to plan, my daughter's wedding on April 27th, hopefully a small vacation with hubby, I have monthly BOM's and "want to do" projects (not only UFO's), and oh yeah, I have a full time job, kids to feed, laundry to do and sleep. I know, I know, sleep is over rated but I seem to need a few hours each night :)
I'll be posting my UFO list on my sidebar and marking when each one gets done. The list is in no particular order but I can tell you that # 1 will be my "Snow Days" project. I've been talking about finishing it for weeks or has it been months? WHATEVER...It's getting done 1st! I will show pictures of the projects before and when it becomes a finished UFO....I'm keeping it real and keeping myself accountable!!!
I'll take a picture of my SNOW DAYS after I get my design wall cleaned off. I'm working on a quilt right now that will be for the "2013 Autism Week" in school. I donate one quilt a year in school that our multiply handicapped children walk around and sell tickets for one lucky recipient. This year I bought the cute Autism fabric and I'm in the process of assembling the blocks for that.....Show and tell on that in a day or two.
