    15 UFO of all kinds found

    I was organizing my cabinets and found all this different stuff I have not finished. I need to get with it. Forgot about these items. They were hidden real good.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I can relate to that. When I reorganized I found lots of surprises.

    My children just shake their head when they come into my sewing room. They say, "Mom, when you go to heaven, how many unfinished quilts will we find?" I just say, "just wait and see".

    It is amazing the treasures we find when we go through things. I was glad to see when I opened this shoe box with a label on rail fence strips 2 x 6 1/2 that it was full. Thought it just had a few. Plan to make a soldier quilt with those. How nice that the strips are all cut.

    It is fun to "find" those UFOs and think about what to do with them ... that's what quilting is all about.

    Look them over, you may be ready to work on them now. If not you can always put the pattern with the project and gift it to a charity shop.

    Whats scary tho, is when you realize how long some of these "treasures" have been hidden.

    I have about a dozen. I keep thinking that I will finish them this year. So far I've just made a few more. Most need borders and I have the backing for many of them. I need to get busy I guess. I have finished a couple this year already, so I guess I just need to keep going.

    I try to convince myself that they are Works Half Done.
    What I make with my hands, I give with my heart.
