    Like the rest of you, I'm trying to decrease the number of UFO's I have. Then, when I saw that some people were keeping track of the number of UFO's they have and subtracting when they complete them, I decided that this was a good idea. A good idea, yes, but I have made some discoveries.
    1. I have entirely too many UFO's!
    2. When I was going through and counting, I realized that I have at least two projects that I only have a picture for, and no instructions. This should be interesting.
    3. I've had some of these UFO's so long that when I went back and looked at them, I thought, "What was I thinking?" Colors that are no longer in style, etc.
    4. I took a project out to start today and realized that I must have been asleep when I cut out the pieces, because what the instructions say I need and what I actually cut out are two different things. The worst part? It's been in my "to do" pile for so long that the fabrics are no longer available, necessitating extra time to figure out how to adapt it to work with what I have.

    Do you think, after discovering all of this, that in the future I might not procrastinate so much on getting these projects started? It's possible, but I'll think about it tomorrow...

    Michelleoc, all four points well taken. Hi everyone I'm just an ole lurker from the 'Vintage' scene but, I do love to stop and lurk around here a minute. I have a UFO that a cousin gave to me a few years back and I am still wrestling with it. Last week I took it to the community center where a few ladies go and quilt and do what we do. Their opinion on this UFO was to replace some fabric pieces and keep going. I keep wrestling with it. Say a little pray for me while I struggle with this one.

    Great finishes everyone, but Linda how in the world did you quilt that giant T-shirt quilt? I have never seen a quilt as large as that one, geeze I thought I did large quilts because mine are always over 100 x 100!

    You all inspire me! I need to get back into my sewing room, but I have been riding everyday I can, horse camping too! Which means I haven't finished a UFO since May's finish! I had all these big plans of finishing one UFO a month when I joined this thread in January! My bad!

    @michelleoc: "think about it tomorrow"

    This group really could be called Procrastinators Are Us. Ugh! I can't remember my last finish.

    Sorry it's so blurry, it didn't look so bad in smaller size. L.
    Wow! That's huge. I really like it.

    I think this group is a great idea! Lot's of people getting those UFO's done! The rest of us just need to get on the band wagon! But, yes there are those of us who are Procrastinators for sure, hence the "challenge' part of this thread!

    I just joined QB but I already had the goal to finish 12 UFOs this year--I'm up to 5 so I'm a bit behind. I hope to finish 2 when I go on a retreat at the end of the month. I made a spreadsheet and counted 67 projects...but I'm working on them.

    Shari welcome aboard! I also finished 5 - I did really good until May! I am also still working on them and hope to finished 12 before the end of the year, but I am just glad I got those first 5 done! I also have a list, but only about 14 to start with! Happy sewing!

    Ok ladies, I am in need of some encouragement. I have this QAYG that I MUST FINISH by Wednesday evening. I really don't have that much to do, just finishing off 6 rows and then binding. But I am having an AWFUL time getting motivated. Here's a pic of the little monster: Name:  2013-07-17_10.25.38.jpg
