I am starting the year with 43 UFOs. I bought two at an estate sale and I was given two by a friend. So I had lots of help to increase my UFO count.
I have been thinking about my goals for 2017 and the main thing that comes to mind is that I want to be a finisher. That means I'd like to finish UFOs but I'd also like to finish new starts and not have things carryover from year-to-year.
With that said, if I complete one UFO per week then I can finish all of my UFOs this year. I doubt that will happen and I'm sure I would become bored with that plan as well.
There are several things that I would like to try. I would like to make postcards and art quilts. I would like to participate in the RSC too. Then let's add to that all the great sew along's that are hosted all over the internet. Then there are the scraps…Oh the scraps. I have recently been asked to do some commission work as well. Let's face it the universe does not want me to only work on UFOs.
To summarize I want to FINISH, I want to learn, I want to participate, and I want to get a handle on my stash whether it be scraps or yardage.
I will aim for 24 UFO finishes. 0 new starts carrying over into 2018. More fabric going out than coming in.
Here's to 2017!
