    Okay, so what is the difference in Unfinished, work in progess, and projects half done? How do you differentiate the difference between them? I have all my current projects in separate boxes, working on each of them intermittently. So what are they?! I call them *to be completed*! Not to mention the tops finished but not quilted!

    The only difference I see is which you term you prefer to use. LOL

    In my mind UFO is one that I'm not actively working on, haven't worked on in quite awhile and have no definite plans to resume work on it in the near future.

    A WIP is one(s) that I'm currently working on.

    A PhD is one that got interrupted for a more urgent project and will be resumed reasonably quickly.
