It isn’t too early to start thinking about your UFO list for 2012. Some time towards the end of December, I’ll post a link box where participants can link back to their list. The way it works is that you list 12 (or more) UFOs that you’d like to complete. You number them 1 – 12. Each month I draw a number and that’s the UFO we all complete. Obviously, no one is checking to be sure we work on the right UFO or making sure we finish the UFO.
When I posted my 2011 UFO list on December 15, 2010, I had no idea what 2011 held in store for us. Yes, I know there are folks who have had homes repossessed, folks who have been in serious accidents and folks with life threatening illnesses and compared to those folks, my year has been a dream year but . . 2011 will go down in my history book as a difficult year.
As I review my 2011 list, I finished 1, 4, 6, 8, 9 and 10. So, in 10 months, that’s six quilts finished. Not too bad . . considering! 🙂
By the end of this year, 2, 5, 11 and 12 will be all done except for the quilting. Not bad either, right?
No progress at all on 3 or 7. I don’t even know why I put 7 on the list because that’s one of the quilts I still teach in a workshop and it’s so much easier to see the blocks in an unquilted top and I need the pieces to show how to put the border together.
To start my list for next year, I’ll put on 2, 5, 11 and 12 that need to be quilted. I’ll add 3 which didn’t get worked on at all in 2011. I’ll add these three
Vince’s quilt that I had hoped to have finished by the time we move into the house but it’s doubtful that will happen. I do hope to get the top finished and all it will need is to be quilted.
This one is all pieced and just needs to be quilted. Then I’ll add the Halloween quilt. The top will be done soon but it will not be quilted any time soon.
That’s 8. No doubt there are four more UFOs that are “do-able” that I will add to my 2012 list so that I’ll have all projects that have at least a 50/50 chance of getting finished.
Have you started thinking about your UFO list for next year yet?
