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.

Welcome Josette....I didn't realize I hadn't been on here for several days. They do seem to fly by! I'm hoping to get in the sewing room today...finally. I might even get my challenge projects for August finished before the end of the month!

Judy and Karen...have fun at the retreat! I love them.....have already signed up for one in January.

Comment by Josette Nanda on Sunday

Comment by Vilma/AR on Saturday

Judy,  another retreat?  Okay, go ahead and start new projects.   Enjoy your time away with Karen.

Comment by Judy/WA on Saturday

Marguerite (Peggy) - A round robin is such a big commitment but so much fun! I am still resting and getting over my last one that ended a long time ago. I do love my finished quilt.

Josette - Now that you joined you will probably always be here like the rest of us. Once we check in here we never leave.

Karen and I are going to a retreat next week. I am starting not 1 new projects... I'm starting 3!!! I can justify it because I have finished and given away several UFOs this year.

Comment by Janet/MO on Saturday

I have found that some times when I run in to a snag, I'll put the project up for a while.  Then when I pick it back up again, it goes together like clockwork.  Don't exactly understand why that is, but so long as it works, that is what counts.

You are very welcome Josette.

Welcome Josette!  

Trevi, I start new things all the time too.  New patterns and fabric just keep calling my name and I am hypnotized by it!  I have not heard of Perfect Circles either and need to get some too!  I have a lot of projects that I can use them with, especially applique patterns.

Comment by Marge/WA on Friday

Connie/KS - don't feel alone!  I hadn't heard of the Perfect Circles before but thanks to the gals here I now have.  I also have them coming to me and I think this is the first time I have ever ordered from CT and have not had any fabric in the order.  That really is a good thing!
