Last January, I posted a list of UFOs that I found in my sewing room. It was not all inclusive, I found a few more throughout the year. But it was a list of UFOs that I wanted to eventually finish. I did want to take time to look at this list and see how I did before creating a new list for this year.
1. My envelope blocks.
Done! And sold in the local Habitat for Humanity Quilt Auction.
Still not done! I did add the borders but the quilting has me stumped. I need to give myself a deadline for this!
The blocks are now all done. Finally! But sadly, it is still a UFO.
Done! I will share finish pics soon.
7. The more I worked on these album blocks, the less I liked them. I need to make something and get them out of my life. Done! Or perhaps I should say GONE! I passed these off on a bloggy friend, Kathy. So they are off my list!
8. This is another very long standing UFO. The prints were purchased in Amsterdam in 1998! I started piecing this not long after. I have a very limited supply of these fabrics and have never been able to figure out where to go from here. It is too long and narrow. I am loathe to take this apart but it might be the only answer. Not done. I haven’t even touched this.
9. Another hexie hand pieced project. I have worked on this in fits and spurts over the last year or so. I have been stopped by the fact that I feel it needs an infusion of new scraps. Not done, although I have made some progress on this. Now it looks like this:
10. A little black and white project that I set aside because it was so darn tedious! Maybe I will get back to this. Not done. Although, I have a reason for not finishing this. I hope to get back to it this year and when I do, you will understand why I was hesitant to move ahead with it. How’s that for cryptic?
…..turned into Calamity Jane…. But she is done!
15. These gorgeous blocks were gifted to me by a bloggy friend last year. I haven’t forgotten them, Jan! They will become a quilt for ME this year. They are not all the same size, not even close. So that is likely why the original maker never finished the quilt. I want to take a weeks vacation and do nothing but work on these. Sigh. Not done.
So out of 16 items on this list, I was able to cross off 8. Without this list, some of those would not have gotten done. So I would say, not bad. But I hope to do better next year. Time to create a new list. Undoubtedly, some items will look familiar! But that is another blog post.
Thanks for sharing the journey with me. I enjoy blogging and it is gratifying to know that so many of you enjoy following my quilty adventures.
