    I know what the ufo is but not what the letters stand for and some of the letters used when talking about people. Do you have a list or is this something I am way too old to get.

    UFO= UnFinished Objects. This catagory can include any project that has been cut out, started, in need of quilting or any form inbetween.

    WIP= Work In Progress. A project that has some sort of ongoing activity will fit in here.

    PIGS= Project In Grocery Sack. This is my largest catagory. I include intended projects in this group. If I purchase fabric for a specific project to be done at some point, the fabric and pattern go into a plastic sack usually provided by the quilt shop. Sometimes my PIGS also include something I have cut but not begun to actually assemble.
