As the start of a new year nears. I think it is time to tidy my sewing room and revisit my unfinished projects. I have to admit to having many !.
First I will write a list of my UFO projects . Next I stop to think if I will actually want to finish each UFO. I will never finish my very first quilt as I hand pieced each of the 24 10 inch -ish blocks and decided I needed to hand quilt the quilt because it was hand pieced. I now dislike the colours that I used way back in 1993, mostly as my eye for colour has changed so much. So this is one UFO I will never finish.
I have decided that 2013 will be the year I finish a project that I have worked on for the past 9 years. Yes, 9 years !! in my defence I only worked on the project at a yearly quilt camp. I have done all the applique and some section are joined together as the appliqué over laps. I only have hand embroidery to finish and the blocks will be finished and waiting for the boarders to be added .I just love this project with handsome reindeers and cute penguins.
Back to my UFO's I then number them in a priority to finish. I will look at this list again same time this next year. I will no doubt have more ( new) UFO's to add to the list ! ..... but the hope is that I will be able to cross off more projects number I have to add on !
I am also hoping to find time in the new year to design another quilt and some stitchery designs too!. I can feel a christmas stitchery and maybe another a little William Morris inspired .
I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year and more time to stitch !
