    welcome from Michigan! Here's my best advice (for what it's worth!) Finish what you start! And that's because most of us have so many UFOs (unfinished objects!) that plague us and not enough time to finish them! We get excited about that next new project and jump right in before finishing the one we're working on! Most of my quilting friends are constantly trying to get to those darned UFOs. My resolution this year is to finish as many as I can. I've completed 4 (almost 5) quilt tops. I think I have 27 more tops to finish, about the same number of quilt tops ready to be quilted, and numerous table runners, pillows, tote bags, purses, placemats, xmas tree skirts, etc. I think in total, over 100 UFOs! I'd better get busy!!!!
