    Great suggestion! I'll just have to do that. Hopefully, I get something done this weekend.
    Be sure to give us a progress report.

    If you feel guilty about leaving them, pick the one closest to finished and try to get it done while you're starting your next project. It's always encouraging to finish something, and maybe that charge will help you "start finishing" the others.

    Darren,
    My oldest WIP (or should it be UFO) is about 5 years old. I started this top before my child was born. yikes.

    :shock:

    uh oh... you're holding me accountable for it. I guess that's a good thing. Now I should be motivated to get a move on it so that I would disappoint you.

    :D :D

    I only have three ladies and waiting. I can not make up my mind on what to so next. :? So they set and I set looking for my next undertaking.I think I will try my hand at a bow tuck tote. I will have to go to the fabric store and buy fabric spray. I maybe way over my head, we will see. I am having to work to shifts for the next two weeks. I bet when I start sewing it will be happy days. :wink:

    I have the same problem. I have a number of quilt tops in totes that just need to be quilted. But there is always another project that catches my eye.

    No, sometimes I am pulled in different directions too. Just make a decision and go with that and you will feel better once you get going on something.

    I got so tired of having WIP and nothing done that I went to Wal Mart purchased some fabric and made a little quilt start to finish. Got the fabric Tuesday and finished machine quilting it yesterday. It's my first FMQ project so it is not the best in looks but it is a finished project!

    Now I have all those WIP laying around waiting for me and I am starting a new project instead of working on those. Sigh
