Boy, quilters sure seem to rack up the UFOs.
I don't have any. I had one for a year or so but now it's done.
I always sew from stash -- well, almost always.

I keep most of my fabric on bolts and I have half a dozen empty ones in the corner!! Gotta fill em!!

OK count me in again. I don't really have any UFO's unless you count the pj's that I cut out while waiting for the sweater to block. I like to get one project done at a time, it's the only part of my life where I can actually see something through to completion, everything else, like work, is never done. So, last time I set a goal of 20 yards of fabric & came just short. This time I'll shoot for 25, hopefully I won't be sidelined for a month like the last challenge. I have 2 cabinet doors that don't close quite right, this should reduce enough to allow them to close. Move out the old to make room for the new.

Last night I had typed up a nice long reply to this post and my keyboard locked up! Sheesh.
Anyway, I have to do some serious thinking about what my goals will be. I'm terrible about setting goals- it feels like a death warrant or something.
I'm going to see if I can count all my ufo's. At first I didn't think I had any, but ahem, now I'm guessing that there are about 10.
My goals will probably have something about sewing a garment for me! I'm terrible about that.
And of course the stash...Maybe to get it whittled down to where it all fits into the dresser that I have???? Hmmmmm....

OK, count me in, this should be interesting.

My goal to complete between now and March -

My patriotic quilt (uses july's red-white-blue swap fabric)
2 bom quilts (this was last winters goal)
Finish repairing Mom's Snowman quilt
I also have a couple of roman shades and throw pillows to make and I just bought a new bag pattern book so I'm going to say 15 yards of stash.

So that makes my goal 4 UFO's (and yes there are more partially done quilt tops up there), and 15 yards of fabric.

Since you said if we buy fabric and use it we don't have to deduct, I should be ok since I have to buy backing for 2 of the 4 quilts.

Have fun everyone. And good luck.

Pudge is off and running, not only does she start the challenge, but she finishes the first ufo's. Of course her goal is large.

Well I didn't get the iron-ons printed. The printer ran out of yellow. Also I opted to go to bed rather than sew. So nothing new just yet but I do have an evening at home tonight. Who knows what I can accomplish.

My goal redone

New postby pucktricks on Fri Jan 11, 2008 7:30 pm

Okay, here goes, keeping an eye on time for the noodles I'm cooking.

To sew:
15 receiving blankets
petticoat and dress for my new hoop skirt (I'll have to buy the fabric for the dress, but I think I have fabric for parts of it)
diaper bag for upcoming baby shower How's this for a cool diaper bag idea: http://shop.rowdyproducts.com/product.sc?categoryId=2&productId=7
I love the idea of a detachable smaller bag for Mom to be able to go out and not be still lugging the big diaper bag. I want to fiddle around with that some.

To do:
I want to get my stash and various stuff organized enough to find stuff again. This is a never ending problem.

Okay, dinner is actually eaten now and kids are in bed, so I'm off to play WOW with some friends.
