What this group is about

I don’t know about you, but I have too many things started. Join me in my quest to get finish what I’ve started. The deal is, for every 2 projects I finish, I get to reward myself by starting something new. You can make your own rules, or give the group ideas for new rules as we go. I think it’ll be fun to ask this group for advice on what project to wrap up next, show my progress with photo’s, get motivation from each other when I want to break my own agreement (trust me, I am weak willed when it comes to new projects).

TUFO - means Tuesday UFO - those of us interested try to make a small dent in whatever UFO we are working on. Tuesday is simply the day the Connecting Threads gals get together to sew and craft...you can make it any day you like, but we got a kick out of the title. Once in awhile we can't make it on Tuesday so we move it to Wednesday - yup WUFO. Report here what you are planning to work on, then the next day, let us all know how you did. Nothing is required, it's just for fun.

Thanks Judy & Karen.  I'm trying my best to finish up all of my older projects, but it is so easy to get side tracked!

I have some quilts that I'm hoping to sell so I need to get better pics taken of them & posted to a local sales group.

Cute, Janet!  Why do we all do that?  I do it all the time, even though I really want to work on a project, I get out of sync with it somehow and it takes a act of will to get back to it. Guess that's why we have this group!

Very cute Janet!

Thanks Donna.  It was a fun project to work on.  Don't really know why I put it away for several months before finishing it!  I have to stop doing that.

Cute, I love owls!  I also love doing machine embroidery.

While looking for a ruler that I never did find I ran across a project I had started, but never finished.  It was a freebie I found online that I knew would be a good one to practice machine applique with.  So I got it out and finished it yesterday and it is now hanging on my office wall.  The name is HootnNanny.

Donna, it seems like every list is very quiet. I have been busy working on a Christmas/winter quilt made up of redwork embroidery blocks made on my embroidery machine. It is not a UFO at this time & I hope it doesn't turn in to one.

Hello!  Anybody home?  Haven't heard from anyone for a while and just want to check in and see how everyone is doing.

I'm sure the person who receives this will love it Sherri.

I have found the inspiration for tackling.  I have quite a few as I am sure many of you on this group do.  I love to piece.  I do not love to quilt so much.... those UFO's.  I need a birthday gift by Saturday.   My spouse suggested a quilt.   With this short notice,  I couldn't piece and quilt one in time so I went to my pile of UFO's.  This person is "lap quilt" worthy.   My categories are   "table runner",  "pot holder"   "mug rug"  "lap quilt"  "bed sized"  The only people that are worthy or a bed size, are my children BTW.  So anywho.... I looked through my stash and found this one.  When I made it I was not even sure why I was making it,  other than I wanted to use up some of my green and yellow scraps.  When I finished the top, I thought.. ok not bad,  but I don't know where I would use this one.   So now it will be gifted.   This has inspired me to go through my UFO pile and find other potential gifts, so that I am not caught short, and have to stay in the sewing room all week to get it finished...
