January Resolutions Beginning
On one of the quilt lists I belong to we're doing a sewing room cleanup, which started today -- just a bit at a time til it's done -- doesn't take much time out of the day, and you still accomplish something. Today's goal was to make a space to contain your ufo's and wips so that you have a place to gather them as you clean the rest of the area. I have two drawers in a dresser that I have ufos packaged in bags -- I took them all out, inventoried and put them back. Total is 36 (there may be more in other areas, but I haven't pulled them yet!). A lot of them are tops waiting to be quilted, at least 7 of them are kits I made up myself, pieces all cut to size and ready to be pieced or appliqued into a quilt. My goal is to finish at least 1 ufo each month for 2006. I hope to finish a lot more, but don't see a point in making myself crazy!
Anyway, to that end, I managed to get my Scrappy Pineapple Blossom on the HQ this afternoon. I hope to start quilting it later this week. And yes, I count this top as a ufo, because I count anything I have started and not completely finished as a ufo - they don't have to be aged.
Also -- two days down and no fabric purchased! And, the backing for the quilt on the frame is pieced from stash, the label is made and so is the binding!
