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 have been working at getting some of my UFO's finished.  Just can't hand quilt them all.  This one is Civil War Chronicles started in January 2011.  Our daughter and 2 grandsons moved in with us in 2012 and are still here!!   This was machine pieced by me, long arm quilted in Shipshewana, Ind.  108 inch square  It is a gift for our son and daughter-in-law.

I come home all enthused, but it doesn't last long. It seems there are always other things that need doing at home, then by the time the chores are finished, I'm out of the mood. I always think when my husband goes fishing for a few days, I will stay up late at night (like we do at a retreat) and sew, sew, sew.......doesn't happen! LOL Oh well, we have good intentions and the UFO's  just keep hollering "Pick Me" "Pick Me" !!!

Connie, I'm with you on the quilting with friends.  I had the joy of a 3 night quilting retreat last weekend and I was VERY productive.  Pics to follow.  I don't know why, but quilting with friends is so motivating.  Wish I could convert that energy remotely.

It's now Labor Day weekend and I've just unpacked my retreat mess so I could try to continue the pace.  We'll see.  I probably need to get off the computer if I want to sew.  Haha!

I have a list also and try to keep up with BOM, but that in itself is a challenge.  :D  

I have given myself a deadline of 5 years to finish all UFOs as an incentive, but still have to finish anything yet.  LOL!   So far I have 44 UFOs in various stages.  This doesn't count the ones that I am dreaming of making or that running around in my mind.

I still keep monthly lists of projects that I'd like to work on each month.  I'm following 3 block of the week sites and I try to get those done each week.

I think that boot helped me get my motivation back even if it took several weeks. LOL

Really, I think what helped me the most was getting together with friends for a sewing weekend last weekend.

I do miss our monthly challenges though. I still make a list of what I want to do each month, but don't have that "have to get something done" feeling. LOL

I haven't been here in a while and the first thing I saw is...........The Boot.  I needed it and will use it this week.

Karen, I love your wall hanging!  So colorful and bright!

Connie, when you finish with the boot, send it over to me!  I need some motivation here too!

Gotta love and respect the boot.
