    Let's see.... I have my Betty Boop Quilt. (I am still piecing all of the blocks.), BOM (4 LQS), Boxer shorts for my middle son (5 pairs), 1 block (betty cotton's-Cotton Theory Quilting), 4 paper piecing books, 101 Fun potholders to make, Landscape quilting with Nancy Zieman & Natalie Sewell & two outfits for my niece back in NY. Plus an enormous amount in the planning stages. Well I should be busy for the next couple of years. :lol: :lol: If not I will be back to BUG all of you for more ideas. Wish me luck.

    Thanks.

    I'm not even going to start counting. It could be very stressful.

    Oh my goodness, to many to count, now I'm busy doing craft shows, so always building inventory, but new ideas constantly pop in my head, I have at least 35 UFO's, that I know of.

    I'm down to two. I finished a carpenter's star today from a weekend manic must do. I still have the quilting to do on the rack and one I'm piecing on the sewing machine.

    I don't know if it matters but I don't zip my 2 gal. bags all the way so the fabric can breathe. I don't know how long before I get around to making the project. I have a wicker laundry basket and when it gets full and bags start falling out of it I figure it is time to pull a couple out and make them up. I love buying new fabric and have a hard time saying no to myself!!

    I can agree with you on that last part, Val. I hate working against a close deadline! I wind up getting really cranky, and there's no joy in working on the project...only finishing it and getting it gone out of my sight. If I have the luxury of time, I like to rotate about 3 quilting projects at a time. That way, I can keep quilting and not get tired of any one of them.

    on that note, I go to pizza shops and get their boxes to use for my kits. My dd once asked if they were used boxes. lol Just tell them your a customer, or buy a pizza to keep you going during quilty time.

    I do one at a time and have never had a UFO.

    I don't allow myself to start another one until the last one is finished.

    I try not to have more than 3-4 or I get overwhelmed. I also end up with too many UFOs. Currently:

    1. Witch quilt (quilting)
    2. Zig Zag quilt (piecing)
    3. Lady of the lake Quilt (Piecing)
    4. Apple core quilt (take a long hand project).
