Judy L's UFO Challenge

Sunday, January 28, 2007

Focusing on my priorities. I joined a group on yahoo last year dedicated to finishing UFOs and using up stash by not buying more. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/stashbuster/?yguid=192166788 . Last year I managed 3 finishes and many new, and completed, projects. As a natural progression I quite buying new fabric unless it was to complete a UFO or work on that new project for the most part. I set a goal this year to finish all my UFOs. There are 10 of them in all. I have one out being quilted by a friend now and another that I have about 3/4 quilted.

There have been so many temptations this year already. I have been asked to join in swaps and challenges but really feel the need to stay focused. There have been two new mystery quilts that I turned my back on. I have a couple items that I plan to start this year so I am not concerned about burning out on my UFOs. My plan isn't quite THAT strict. So now when you see me with my blinders on you will know it is me trying to avoid temptation!

I hope you get your UFOs finished too. I have my blinders on - and am resisting swaps and new projects - although some of them are right in front of me, the blinders don't help much!
