    Okay, I think I am going to give in and let you all corrupt me! I have waited patiently for the white flannel to finish Levi's quilt and they haven't got any more in yet! We don't have a variety of stores around here so I am stuck in the waiting game. Anyway I am itching to sew and against my better judgment of having UFO's I think I am succumbing to the bad side and am going to start something else......UGH there I said it. I am going to attempt the BOM first and check again before I actually start something else but if they don't have it by tomorrow I am moving on!!

    This is all the fault of my quilting friends on here you know! I didn't want to do this UFO thing because I am afraid it will be compulsive and there won't be any looking back..... :) I hope you are all happy!! :D

    You are not a true quilter until you have a pile of UFO's and a stash of fabric. Now you can say you are a true quilter.

    It was going to happen sooner or later. You can't be a true quilter without UFOs.

    So glad we could help :!: :thumbup:
    Now at least you will know how it is to have a gazillion UFO's. :lol: I say gazillion because UFOism is contagious :!: :lol: :lol: :lol: Kind of like chicken pox or the easles. Once you have one you are bound to end up with more and no idea how they got there. :lol:

    Hey Toni,
    Glad we could be of help in convincing you that UFO's are necessary!!!! You are not a quilter until you have all kinds of UFO's in your stash. They help create fun and stress at the same time. They help build your stash and give you an excuse to buy more fabric. Join the rest of us who have UFO's. HEHEHE!!! Welcome to the world of quilting!!!

    Bebe

    Ok, Toni, I'm going to the quilt side with you. I have a table runner I made from the leftover strips of a charity quilt...fabric not chosen by me...that I am going to purposely not finish. According to a consensus on this site, you can't be a true quilter without a UFO or two. This will be my designated UFO, and I promise it has nothing to do with the fact that the fabric is kind of ugly. Really! :) :twisted: :wink:

    Well, I don't know about the rest of you, but not only do I have UFO's, I also have LPP's ( a list of Projects Pending). That also seems to grow too. Now which would my Patchwork Party blocks bought summer of 06 be called, I think be considered a UFO, I would guess? Although it is also a project pending, that I have on my list, Uah! Never enough time! Need to eat and sleep less then perhaps I would thin myself as well as the stash/list. :lol: :lol:

    Glad to hear you are coming to the dark side Toni. :lol:
    I was one of those who never had a UFO either - now I have 2 and another in the works. Happy sewing.

    It isn't a UFO until you've cut your strips. it goes like this:

    PIMM - Project in My Mind
    POD - Project On [the] Drawing-Board
    PWAP - Project With a Pattern
    PIGS - Project in Grocery Sack (any kind of storage device makes suitable PIG skin. Just means you have it in your mind, have a pattern and fabric gathered together but haven't made your first cut.)
    WIP - Work in Progress
    UFO - A WIP that's almost, but not quite, done

    R E L I E F - Really! Everybody, Look! I Even Finished!!!!!!!!

    :lol:
