    I am in the process of getting ready to move in 3.5 weeks, I really need to start packing! However I'm taking this time to go through all my fabrics and make a complete UFO LIST. I'm already at 10 projects and I haven't even started really going through the closet! I keep finding things I forgot I even had!

    I'm just wondering if anyone else has a UFO list that seems to never end??


    On the plus side I can keep the list and hand it in at my guild and they have a UFO program for each UFO you finish you get a ballad for a prize at the end of the year. I'm already done 2 in the last month.

    Our guild has a monthly UFO challenge. You pay $1.00 and show the item that you plan to finish, but it had to have been started at least a year ago. Then you bring the finished project to the next business meeting. Anyone who finishes a UFO gets their name in the hat for a drawing for all the UFO money for that month. If you don't finish your project, you can put in another dollar for the next month.

    If you have been quilting very long you have UFO's. My problem is I get a new magazine or visit a quilt shop and get excited about a new project and start on it. I also have 6 tops to be quilted and at least that many quilt top almost finished not to talk abut the ones I have ready to sew. the up side of UFO's is I will never run out of project! LOL

    I know that UFO stands for UnFinished Object. But what is the term (acronym) for projects not started yet. I have bunches of those.

    If you are working on them, don't you get to call them WIPs now? :) :) Got to take credit where it's due! LOL

    I don't have any UFO'S at the moment but I am working on 2 projects. I don't have the room to keep any UFO's.
