    Projects bought and waiting..........

    I took my friend out for a birthday lunch today, which included visiting quilting stores that we had never been too! It was fun, but I didn't buy much because I have so many promised patterns, materials and such waiting for me at home. I came home and counted 21 at least. Time for me to get serious. What about everyone else? How many do you have if any?

    Well, let's see...these are the ones staring at me from their bins-
    4 small camping/RVing theme pillows (12x16ish) 2 for DD & 2 for DS's camper
    "Spruce It Up" Christmas quilt for DD
    Aprons & potholders (Christmas gifts) for sisters, nieces, DD, friend, church ladies...(just finished a set tonight)
    Pillowcases
    Totes
    Postage stamp quilt - blocks just need sashing
    "Tools" quilt for DGS & "Manly" quilt for DS

    Now I'm embarrased. I'm not a slacker...just a busy girl.

    Ah, just spent an hour and a half de-cluttering and found 5 WIP quilts (didn't know I had that many started) plus 4 quilts with fabrics lined up to start. Then there are the microwave bowl mitts I want to make for Christmas gifts and the fleece dog mats I need to make for trophies for a show. Many more patterns sitting around that I want to do. I guess I should get busy this weekend and try to finish off the WIPs. Then I can have some fun with the new stuff.

    I feel like getting myself shocked this evening. So I'll play along and make a list. Here we go:

    WIPS (To be finished piecing): Party mix. What a Bunch of Squares. Daiwabo BOM from 2003(?) Topsy-Turvy. 2011Thangles Series 7 Buck-A-Block.
    Quilts to be sandwiched & quilted: What a Bunch of Squares (Yellow). Christmas Tree. Paisley Squares.
    New projects: Rainbow blocks. Daiwabo Crosswalk. Daiwabo zig-zag. Civil War spools. Crow on a Pumpkin.

    7 actual WIPS, 5 on deck. Not as bad as I thought it would be. This is also taking into consideration that in the past year I have completed 4 quilts (all of them new, no WIPS), and some mug rugs. I would like to get some of the projects that have been hanging around for a few years cleared out so that I can start getting into some wool applique projects. Now, if only my husband would agree to take himself, our kidlet, and the dog off for a nice long holiday, hire a cleaner to come in a couple of weeks a month, and someone to stock the fridge with a few tasty tidbits I could get to work!

    I enjoy making a quilt, if I start to check on what I haven't finished I'll get upset. Most do get done, but applique and the small detail ones take quite some time, I have to feel like doing it.

    let me think, 2 shelving units of projects with patterns and fabric all neatly stacked in their containers, at least 50 quilt tops to be quilted and we won't go into the "want to do" list

    I am afraid to count them - I just figure I have years ahead of me because I have so many projects in the works. When my shoulder stops hurting then I will be back to normal (have a pinched nerve in my neck - causing shooting pains in left shoulder blade - left arm - no fun at all). I need to finish two quilts for christmas and its coming fast.

    Since I've only been quilting a little over a year, I don't have a lot of projects but do have a few. My sister and I went on a quilting cruise in August--visited 4 different quilt shops. Now have material and patterns for 7 projects (already started one so that would have been 8).

    I have LOT AND LOTS AND LOTS MORE projects and collections going that I can list but that would take too much time. I'm thinking No More Buying in 2012 and Lots More Completing in 2012.

    Do they have an organization for people like us? UFO Anonymous? Quilters Anonymous?
    How about "UFO CAT 2012" - UFOs Controlled And Tackled 2012"
    Or "UFO TAC 2012 - UFOs Tackled and Completed 2012"
    If you like it, I can start a thread, we can make a detailed list, and get these UFOs DONE!
    Maybe we can have prizes each month (maybe send the 'winner' one of our UFOs that we don't want to finish LOL)

    Maybe that is just what we need in 2012! Might really encourage us to get moving, I spend too much time on here, but I enjoy it!

    Oh my! I have too many to finish in my lifetime. I am addicted to quilt kits. And put together fabric with patterns that I just have to make and put together my own quilt kit. I am addicted to crumb quilting, and have a huge stash now. In 2011, I have been avoiding my LQS, as I am like a gambler at slot machines and a pocket full of quarters when I get within 20 yards of fabric. For 2012 my goal is to sell some of my stash and kits, (???), if I can let some of them go.

    I have lots of projects waiting, a pile of tops and runners needing quilting, a pile needing binding, and a pile that needs the handsewing done on the binding. I usually do the handsewing at night. When I get a lot of things that need binding I spend a day doing that, I always have one on the frame being quilted which I do for at least an hour a day, the rest of my time I spend piecing.

    I'm on board with that. I have too many things to finish. No more starts with the only exception being swaps. And, I'm not involved with too many of those. I used to be such a good little quilter. Start to Finish. I have 5 quilt tops waiting to be sandwiched and quilted and numerous small projects. And some are several years old. Time to finish. I will be looking to see if you've started a thread. Being held accountable not such a bad thing.

    Let's see:

    Waiting to quilt - white on white swans, 2003 scrappy BOM, NY beauty
    Quilts in process - quilted diamonds, dear Jane, GFG, pickled clamshell, 2009 BOM, affairs of the heart, undercover in Houston
    Purchased fabric - Amish bride, feathered star, Hawaiian appliqué, 2001 BOM, Willowberry calendar quilt, mariners compass, lone star, r Pandolph Christmas, willowberry christmas, jinny Beyer journey quilt kit

    Officially embarrassed by this confession.

    I should be able to move three projects from "in process" to the quilting pile by the end of the year

    I have too many to count. Need to get busy and finish some of them instead of adding more.
