    Projects I Did in January 2015

    Hi,

    Back at the beginning of January I said I had a goal to complete UFO's in 2015. In order to keep myself on target I started a journal of everything I do each month. Here is my accounting for January:

    UFO completed-small quilt top from estate sale quilted and bound. It will go into my newly started stockpile for "when I need a quilt quick".

    New-In December I started a quilt top for my DB's DGD. It is a Braid in a Day done in scrappy pinks and purples. It is completed and ready to mail.

    New-Crocheted 2 headbands with flowers for 2 granddaughters.

    UFO-finished up headband w/flower to go with bootcuffs and fingerless gloves given to niece in Dec.

    New-created 2 Christmas ornaments. I plan to make at least 1 new ornament a month for my sewing room Christmas tree I plan to put up this coming December.

    New-crocheted pink hat for cancer patient.

    UFO-Quilted and bound cowboy quilt for grandson's birthday in January.

    New-knitted 12 dishcloths

    UFO-Scooby Doo children's quilt top quilted and bound. Ready for gifting.

    UFO-40 little banners completed and mailed to quilting friends.

    New-started Civil War quilt.

    Time to start a new month and new page in my journal!

    Wow, you have been busy. This sounds like a great way to tackle those UFOs and feel like you are making progress.

    I like your system. Since my UFOs require more than a month worth of work, how do you document that you have worked on a UFO but didn't finish it this month?

    Humm I haven't run across that yet. Great question! I will probably label it as ongoing and document the month it was started. That would give me UFO's, New, and Ongoing.

    I started out January with a bang, too. Still going fairly strong. I want to get some things made up for gifts for when I need them and in the process, use up some of my scraps.....have 12 placemats almost finished. Have finished up a couple UFO's and have some other things in the works. Hope both of us can keep up the momentum....!

    Thanks everyone. Here are a few pics. Remember some of these were tops that were already to quilt and small at that...also the crochet projects were fast and easy. I was off work until 1/5 and again on the 19th so was able to spend that full day quilting since the hubs had to work...

    For Feb I hope to have the following done:

    1. Finish Civil War quilt top
    2. Put borders on Christmas quilt top (I decided it's too narrow) quilt and bind
    3. Quilt and bind car quilt for friend from church (it's huge!)
    4. Quilt and bind brother-in-laws quilt top (semi UFO...I finished the top in Dec but didn't like my backing so waited for my order from Joanns to get in
    5. Continue knitting dish cloths
    6. Prepare tax paper work for Accountant...double yuck!

    Wow you have been very busy... I need to really get to work on quilts but the rest of Feb and March are dedicated to finish up crochet projects before I begin the big projects.

    I have finished up several crochet projects (hats, headbands, fingerless gloves, dishclothes, towel holders-the kind that go around the stove handle) for the granddaughters/daughters for Xmas 2015. I still have a way to go on boot cuffs, quilting each grand (3) and one for each daughter (2). I have to make afghans (5 total) for all. Then a very good friend wants an afghan in red .. So add one more on .. LOL good thing I have 11 more months to finish stuff ...

    I had the same idea, using up my yarn, I crocheted about 30 neck scarves, I say about because As the grand kids showed up I let them pick out as many as they wanted. Now I have less yarn, so I made squares of all sizes, and sewed 2 together for hot pads to put hot food on the table. Yarn pile is getting smaller. Then I checked my kit pile, WOW. So far I beaded a picture, Embroiderd Some pillow cases, but have many kits to do. Sometimes I get gifts from my kids and they think I can do anything. I really must get at some of them before I`m too old to learn. Last winter I used up all material that was here for Baby blankets About 15 quilts worth, And 10 Baby shawls . This year I must finish a T-shirt Quilt (or else) and Be sure to post your Civil War Quilt, as I have to make one for the NAVY.
