2013 UFO List Progession


I know things have been extremely quiet around here lately. Life got a bit overwhelming for a while and I couldn’t seem to get a grip on everything at once. The only thing I knew to cure this was to focus on one thing at a time. Through the course of this progression, I decided the blogs date would be Jan.1 – so here I am! I have to be honest and tell you, I have missed y’all!!

Oddly, it seems sewing just isn’t as much fun without showing it off here at some point. Don’t get me wrong there hasn’t much to show off. A couple projects but not too much! If I got pictures (I can’t even remember the last 3 months are such a blur), I might go back and blog about a couple of them.

BUT, I decided today was a good day to look at my 2013 UFO list – from January to December. This is what my list looked like January 1:

  33. #swoon2013 – 5 blocks to go

First thing you probably notice is there are a couple projects added – this shouldn’t be a surprise. I will always start new projects!! The important thing is to look at all of the completed projects! Well, they may not all have been completed – one was donated, one was ditched, a couple given away as they were. Regardless they are not in my sewing room!!

Theoretically, I am moving into 2014 with this list:

  1. Batik Nature BOM – Top complete/back done
  2. Spring Time  – basted
  3. Red & White – Top & Back Done
  4. Penquin Quilt – Pieces cut
  5. Row By Row – Top Done, needs borders, back ready
  6. #swoon2013 – 5 blocks to go
  7. Sugar Block Club  (had to move it up from the monthlys – time to make a top)

And then there are the “Monthlys” that are ongoing:

  1. Toes in the Sand BOM- Nov x Dec x Jan 0 Feb 0 Mar 0
  2. MSBee Blocks – Jan x Feb o Mar 0 Apr 0 May 0 Jun 0

Of course we all know there is a hidden project somewhere! Its the time of year when I find them, log them, and share them….

So, I’ll be back tomorrow with a good 2014 UFO list – with pictures!!

  1. You have been doing so well, when you have a chance show us some pictures.

  2. You had a great year, I think you probably did a lot more than I did as regards finishes! Now if only you knew someone that ran a competition for finishes… 😉

  3. Amazing amount of crossing off you’ve got there – I agree, sharing pictures makes it way more fun. Happy New Year

  4. Rhonda! I missed you. I hope things have settled down and you are gradually getting back into a routine. Your list of finishes for 2013 is impressive. Good luck with everything in 2014.

  5. Wow, I’m exhausted just looking at your lists!!! Have a great 2014 !
