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).

1. No purchase necessary

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.

I agree Cornworm. WIP sounds like I'm working on it which is not the case for most of my projects. Guess I could call what is on the work top currently as a WIP and the rest UFO's. Kinda gradually go from UFO to WIP to FINISHED.

I'd call mine WIP, but that would be false advertising since there's nothing progressing about them at all. lol

Well, over the past week I've nearly completed the top for my "temptation" quilt kit that I got for Christmas. I haven't had a chance to work on it since about Saturday or Sunday because there's been too much non-quilty stuff going on.

Also, yesterday morning was my guild's class/workshop for January and I am proud to say that for the very first time ever I completed a project that I started in a guild class/workshop!! That's definitely a step in the right direction. I've posted pictures of the hand quilting organizer in my "Projects" album for those who'd like to see.

WIP, I Like that.

I love the thought of renaming UFO's to WIP's...sounds like I'm accomplishing something!! My project for today is to hem some pants for my father. Nothing exciting and definitely not quilting but it needs to be done...

Sounds like fun and I need a challange. Wow if I stay with it I might be out of UFO's in ten years. LOL's Lori

This wil be my first on line group, so should be fun. As for UFO'S, I don't have any all of mine are in the WIP (works in progress) category. First time I said I had no UFO'S to a friend she about fainted, then I confessed I had renamed them. I just finished a project that I had started back in the mid 90's. It was a small pinwheel wallhanging kit. Boy, has my taste in fabrics changed. Plan to donate it to a fund raiser for a group I belong to. Anyway, I'm looking forward to sharing a new experience with online quiltig. Have a great day.

Yay, I quilted three of the wall hanging UFOs I had pinned. I have to repin the other one as I don't have enough room for a border on one side, but to repin it I will. I felt so good doing the quilting on the machine for the other three. Now all I need to do on them is to trim and put a binding on them and they will be ready to hand on the wall. They really look neat. I will post a picture of them when I can get the whole roll of film shot. Thanks for everyone's encouragement of each other. Yay. Mr. G.

Hooray - sewing machine tech. just called, my machine is ready to bring back home! Got lots of cutting, layering, and basting done while my machine was gone. Maybe I should periodically declare a "no machine day" and work on UFO's that need to be cut, layered, bound, labeled - I surprised myself at how much I got done without my machine.

I am actually making progress on the UFO or at least the unquilted ones. Have finished quilting 3 Quilts of Valor tops for our guild and have them back to be bound. I also completed several of the table runners I had started before Christmas though there are about 6 left to do the simple quilting on, maybe this afternoon. Have been working on listing all the projects - tops to be quilted both mine and charity, projects in progress (UFO) mostly mine but have a couple of charity tops to complete. Then there are the kits and planned projects which I have not even touched yet; I have to get those at least listed so I can decide which ones I no longer want to do and either use the fabric elsewhere or give to someone who will enjoy them. Sew many fabrics, sew little time. Have a great day everyone. Off to clean the snow off the driveway with the hope that we don't get anymore through the weekend - I AM SICK OF SNOW!!! Actually I love it; I just prefer to visit it and not have it in my driveway to clean. LOL

I am back on the sewing machine and quilted one UFO, with 3 more lined up to do today. I don't know what I am going to use for binding but I will hopefully know by today so that I can put the binding on and then finish them with hand sewing. They have been getting a free ride on my back for some time now, and now they will have to ride on a wall somewhere or in my closet when they are finished. Yay. Thanks to all for being here. Mr. G.
