I declare that 2014 is going to be THE Year to finish up all/most/some of my UFOs! (…am I wavering ALREADY??) This is NOT a resolution…I always feel bad when I fail my New Years’ resolution…This is going to be my GOAL…huge difference. A goal can be long term…yup… I’m already wavering…my UFOs are doomed….
First up to the plate is ‘Midnight Harvest’, a Primitive Gathering pattern. I cut up the fabric and wool a few YEARS ago…I think when I discovered that the stars were finishing up at a wee, itty bitty 3 1/2” I put the fabric and wool into a tote and quietly slid it into a closet…to forget-about-it…until NOW!!
This past week I have been busy…sewing those little guys together…AND now that they are together… they are sweet and scrappy!!
Excuse the wrinkles…it happens to the best of us!! The topper is back in that tote waiting for the pumpkins to be hand stitched!
My ‘GOAL’ is to have this on my kitchen table for the Fall of 2014!!
Totally do-able, don’t you think? (just nod your head…)
Sew…onto the next UFO…yup, I already have it out of the tote and onto the table!! Stay tuned…this one is a REAL OLDIE…but it is also a GOODIE!
What about YOU? Have you got a UFO hanging around…or do you have several….? The Decease Quilter’s…the one who had several HUNDRED…maybe even a thousand UFOs, REALLY made me sit up and take notice!! I do not want my family opening the closet door to see THAT stack of totes!! Yowzers! (BUT man what a Garage Sale THAT would make!:o) I can see Sandy clicking her heels as she leaves my driveway yelling “Start the CAR!! Start the Car!!” ) Now HOW did we get HERE and on the first day of the year!! Sheesh…!!
So there you have it…my GOAL is to finish as many UFOs as I can…with a sprinkling of new quilts in the mix…because we all have to have a little bit of FUN along the way!
I hope you rang in the New Year with a blast…and are now all prepared to do some UFO busting of your own…!! Come on bring’em on…
Thanks for stopping by…and all the best to you and yours!~P
PS… I said yesterday that I was going to tell you about the WORSE tool of 2013…but then I started thinking that was just too negative! We need to start the New Year off with a good vib…a positive outlook…like finishing off UFOs…huh?
