Thinking about this make me a bit overwhelmed..lol. I have one top done ready to be quilted for granddaughter. One top ready for applique for other granddaughter's first birthday and one quilt with the Ohio stars done and ready to be put together. I have 12 sets of snowmen without heads that need to be finsihed and mailed by friday and 12 sets of snowman who need to have accessories by friday so I can have them for a bazarr.
It's a normal day at the Norris home....lol

1. Carpenter's Wheel - double - top done
2. Snowman BOM - twin - pinned and waiting to be quilted
3. Grandmother's Flower Garden - 8 out of 20 blocks done - waiting until Christmas projects are done.
4. Candle wall hanging - piecing
5. Christmas tree place mats - needs binding put on
6. Santa wall hanging - cut out and laughing at me
7. Lily stained glass wall hanging - cut out and just scoffing me
8. Two spring table runners - need to put blanket stitch around the edges - I'll leave you to guess how long I've been working on these.
9. Three fabric bowls - cut out.

I think that's it. At least it's all that I can think of. If there's anything else, I really don't want to know about it.

This was chosen from Random topics and I see the date is rather old. I do want to reintroduce this. It is so true !

The F-word. Just like in girl scouts. No one was to say the R word. Rain. I cannot for some reason finish this baby quilt. The edging is so difficult, my Parkinson's hands are NOT cooperating !

How many other projects are you all juggling?

Card Trick, half pieced. Started in 2004 and in the UFO box.
3 Bean Salad, blocks done but need to applique chili peppers in 1/2 of them and find backing I love.
2 patriotic quilts started and they are in shoe boxes now.
Black and pink cat print quilt for sis. Sashing doesn't line up, so that got thrown in a bin for someday.
2 unquilted baby quilts, 1 partially pieced baby quilt.
1 with most of the pieces cut but no piecing.
1 almost [email protected]*&ed!

Chairjogger.. just like Patrice.. I too had to give up counting as there are so many one of these days I will be caught in an avalanche of UFOs and other projects ready to be "Finished"!! :) and I don't help matters either when I add more to the pile!! LOL

I too am just doing a little random topic lurking.. I have 10 more minutes to quitting time! :)

I love to read this and think that I am not alone. My kids think I'm crazy because I have 9 quilts that are sandwiched and ready to quilt sitting on my son's bed. (he left in Nov with the Navy) I did work on 3 of those this weekend, but they still need the binding finished and labels because they are wedding gifts. I have 5 more that are tops without boarders, 2 ready to be sandwiched, and a collection of 11 different block of the month, or block exchanges that need to be put together. There is another 4 sets of blocks that I made that need joining. I am not going to count the rest of the grouped with patterns PITS (projects in tubs) It is way too embarrassing.

i have discovered one advantage to having a pile of UFOs.

when an unexpected occassion comes up for which i need a special gift in a hurry, i can WIP a UFO out of the pile, polish it off, and hand it over. one less UFO; somebody gets something they will treasure; everybody thinks your some kinda genius super-quilter because you "just found out about it" and were able to deliver a quilt in a "jiffy".
