Wonnie, I'm not sure I understand your question's application. If you mean for it to count as a finished UFO, you can finish it any way you want. We are a very relaxed and supportive group, and our only purpose is to cheer and encourage one another in getting those UFO's out and finished.
Some have even "finished" a project by giving it away as they no longer cared for it. It still counts, because it is no longer in their pile of UFOs.
So you see, we are very open and accepting in our interpretations of all things related to this thread. Basically, it's you make your own rules and we support and encourage you. Some of us set goals, but it's not required, and if you set them, and don't meet them, we will give you hugs and urge you to try again next month.
Welcome to our thread, huggggggggs and smiles
PS: If your question was in reference to something else, please let us know more so we can give you a more proper answer.
