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.

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.

Dayleen, your quilt top is beautiful!

Comment by Dayleen on January 2, 2009 at 8:41pm
I added 2 pics of the top that I finished to my photos, but I don't know how to get them to this page. I'll work on it. Anyway, I love this quilt. A friend and I designed the pattern and it is the first time I've worked with batiks - and I LOVE them! Dayleen

I made that resolution last year since I'm trying to use up my old stash. While I didn't buy a ton, I found that even if you are working down a stash or finishing a UFO, that there are times when you need a coordinating piece or two of fabric. So other than a couple of new projects this year, I am going to try to keep my purchases to a minimum. Ok....scratch that! lol I just remembered that I got a ton of gift cards for my birthday and Christmas that I need to spend by the end of October to be safe from fees. lol

I hear lots of gals say they aren't going to buy anymore material until they complete their UFOs or whittle down their stash. OH MY will the fabric shops go out of business LOL (no fear of that) The trick is to try and stay out of the shops, perhaps going into one could be a reward for having finished a UFO.

Here are comments to Rosarita and Vicky N and Dayleen:

You can count anything you want in this group. Personally, I'd be horribly embarrassed to include my USO's (too many to count and growing ever so rapidly!), so I'm limiting it to UFO's and rewarding myself with USO's :)

Vicky, I think everyone should post their finished work in their own photo album AND here so all members can see them, but our group can applaud!

Dayleen, congrats! Show us what you did!

I'm headed to my mom's in a few hours for a sewing weekend - Fri afternoon and Saturday all day with nothing but sewing (and some time with my dad during breaks). I'm taking my appliqued tablerunner that's well over 3 years old and I'm going to quilt and bind it. I just finished the hand applique a few weeks ago. Of course, ever the optimist, I'm also taking another UFO with high hopes of making progress on two things, but I'll be happy with completing the tablerunner.

I have a lot of USO (un-started objects) does that qualify as UFO, if so, count me in.
Comment by Vicky N. on January 2, 2009 at 7:11am
Sounds like some of you have taken ACTION...will there be a photo gallery of completed UFO's??? That could be very inspiring!!
Comment by Dayleen on January 2, 2009 at 6:15am
You all inspired me to get busy! I was up till midnight, but last night I finished a quilt top that has been pushed aside since October. I also finished a set of 8 coasters for myself (I made a zillion last Christmas for everyone buy me!). Now I need to tackle my 3 unbound quilts, and a tree skirt from 2 years ago that just needs the applique stitching done. My fingers hate to hand stitch - I'm trying to get over that. I also have 8 or 10 'kits' all bagged up and ready to be started. I need to get to those as well and not buy anymore fabric until I get a few of them done. Sew many projects, sew little time! Dayleen

I spent New Year's Day digging out all my UFO's thanks to joining this group. I, too, put them in the 2 gal. ziplok bags. I can see at a glance what is in it and they stack well on my shelves. A friend called while I was doing this and asked if I'd like to go to a quilt retreat in a couple of weeks. Would I!!!! It's at a beautiful retreat center in southern Minnesota and they had 2 cancellations. I just can't wait! I'm not going to take ANY new projects along - UFO's only. Yippee!!!!!
