    A big train whistle welcome to those who recently climbed aboard!! How great to have you with us. Looking forward to seeing your UFO's turn into FOs! Printing " UFO Donation Center" on my forehead for Corky. LOL

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

Is there, perhaps, some magic powder or potent you sprinkle on them that keeps them from multiplying in the night? Or even maybe shrinks or dissolves a few each day?
    I even changed the container I kept mine in, fearing it might have had the powers of the Stone Soup kettle, but apparently the container is not the problem.
    Please share your secrets with us as I am sure there are many who would benefit.
    Oh, it isn't that simple I am afraid. Let me explain. I have a large trash can that I throw in all the tiny and ubber smaller pieces of scraps. Anything less than a 2" goes in there. That is what I use for stuffing for the doggie beds that goes to the humane society. Anything bigger than that goes in my super large ziploc bags, they are my big scrappy pieces (anything bigger than 2"). I am trying to tame them, but it just seems the more I try to use those up the more they mutiply. I guess I get some satisfaction to know at least I get rid of the little bitty scraps. No magic yet for the bigger ones.
    P.s. two doggie beds are done

    And a closeup of some of my quilting. I did stitch in the ditch around the stars, after this picture was taken.

    I didn't give up on the challenge. I just worked late til midnight. I did get some sewing done, and another dog bed completed. That takes care of the uber bitty scraps for now. Today, I will finish that little baby quilt. Just a little scraper it is.

    UFOs #5 & #6 are done. Both are Warm Wishes quilts... the pink one is Ballerina Cats and the other is Animal Pairs. Both will be donated to Project Linus.
