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
2. Timeframe: this is an ongoing group with no defined end time.

4. Post questions, project feedback, and pictures of your progress.

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.

Awhile ago I told myself that I was not buying any more fabric until I finished at least one UFO. I think I originally promised that I would not buy anything from the quilt store until I finished a UFO, but I just couldn't help myself and bought a few books. Well today I visited the quilt store and did not buy anything! I think that is the first time I've ever done that! I returned home and spent three hours cutting fabric for one of my UFOs and I think I can get it done over the next couple of weekends. Happy, happy, joy, joy!!

Elaine, that little dress is gorgeous! You'll have to post a picture of her wearing it.

I don't know whether cleaning and/or organizing your sewing room counts as sewing but when needed, is just as important. However, I'm pretty sure 30 Rock doesn't count. lol

I got my quilting room done and have posted about it in my blog along with pictures. The rest of the pictures of the room are in my photo albumns.

Does drinking coffee and watching recorded 30Rock count as time spent sewing? Can't seem to get moving today.

does organizing your room count as time spent sewing? (trying to sew at least an hour every day)

Sitting next to me is a baby quilt that needs it's binding finished. I am determined to finish this quilt tonight, Ha Ha. I'll try. Then I can press pieces for two others I'm working on.

My New Year's resolution is to get binding on all those quilts stacked up in my sewing room! I also have many projects to finish.Hopefully, this group will help keep me on task.

What a beautiful smocked dress by Elanie! I used to smock dresses for my daughter years ago! but I haven't smocked in a long time, I am hoping for grandchildren eventually to make things for, hopefully I will have the incentive to finish things then!

Today I'm going to work on my Libby Lehman project. I still have lot's of enthusiasm for it (the class was just this past week), so I want to keep going while I still have momentum. I'll post a pic as soon as it's worthy.

Cheri, I love the handwork because I can do it while watching a movie, but I hate the prep that I have to do in the sewing room before I can sew by hand. But if that's all that's left on many of your projects, you might just have to bite the bullet, so to speak and force yourself to do that little bit.....I'll bet it won't take very long. Reward yourself with something for every step you get accomplished.

Congratulations Elaine! The dress is adorable and your smocking is beautiful! Doesn't it feel great to get something done?!
