I think I Luv 2 Cre8te tooooooooooooooooooo many UFOs!!!!!!!!
This is box number 1. I will share box number 2 in the next post.
I counted up today what UFOs I have.
I have a total of 35 UFOs. I think this is a bit serious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now so I don't overwhelm myself and fall off my perch and have a relapse, I am going to
group them into lots of 5 and list the group on my blog and work through that and keep adding.
I think this challenge is great for me as I can work at my own pace. I have tried other challenges but felt the time frame/commitment wasn't working for me. My life can be so erractic that I think I can manage it then I have a spanner in the works to stuff it all up. Which makes me stress which is not a good situation.
I really want to succeed this time in getting these UFOs finished once and for all.
I would like to change my habit from having multiple UFOs to working on only one thing at a time and finishing it.
I hope this challenge can help me achieve this.
My UFOs vary from some just needing a binding stitched down, quilt tops in the flimsy state and others where the blocks are all completed and just needing to be sewn together and quilted etc.
So some shouldn't take long to complete at all once I set my mind to them. I'm sure I could knock quite a few over in a weekend. Just have to stay focussed.
Now my list will begin with:
- Wish Quilt by Bronwyn Hayes. I have one stitchery block to complete and then I can put it altogether and finish it. I started this 2 years ago and I would like to hang for this Christmas.
- Valentines Quilt. Stitcheries from Stina's blog. Lovely little hearts. All stitcheries are complete just need to put it together and finish. Would like to complete this for Valentines day.
- Botanical Re-Birth Quilt. This is so close to being finished it is ridiculous. This was to be for an exhibition but I lost the plot at the end. I don't think I am good at working to deadlines. Too much pressure.
- Various table runners which are all close to completion.
- Dresdan Plates. I wanted to have a go using the wedge tool to make dresdans and designed the layout for this quilt. Have four blocks done.
So that is my pledge and plan and I hope with the encouragement of this blog I will achieve this.
And become a recoverd UFOlic.
Bye for now and happy cre8ting, from Liz
