    Okay,
    So every month I will make a gift for someone out of my stash and give it to them right when it's done instead of waiting for a birthday or holiday. Of course, I can plan on certain projects for upcoming birthdays if I wish.
    This will help me start to use what I've already invested in. And, at this time of year, by the time I get motivated to make Christmas gifts, it's too late to get them finished in time.
    I think I'll have to come up with something catchy to include referring to my New Year's Resolution when I pass the gift along.
    What do you think?

    What ever works! Mine is to try to take a couple hours to actually clean the house! I wake up each day with good intentions, but my intentions are always sabotaged by either my computer (like for the past 2 hours!) or my sewing machine!

    its not Christmas
    nor is it your birthday
    I was thinking of you
    as I do each day

    I found this fabric
    and without delay
    I made you this gift
    you can open today

    who needs a reason
    I just want to say
    enjoy this gift
    on this un-holiday

    :D:D:D

    I think you'll get lots done that way! :-) Hope it works for you!
    The most successful "stash of UFO's" buster I had was the year we moved, when I packed a box of 12 "do it or dump it" UFO's and managed to stick to that rule for the next 12 months. (It hasn't worked since!)
    2011 - hmm... 11 projects? Or think binary -- that's just 3 UFO's. :lol: :lol: :lol:
