    I am in the midst of it now myself with 7 ufo's! I finished one today and am determined to get 3 more done in the next month I hope. It feels so good to get them done doesn't it? Then I can start the process over again Hang in there and keep pushing forward... they will get done then

    I've always tried to not have any UFO's, but i'm beginning to be just like the rest of you.....One quilt needs a binding and another needs to be quilted. I'm not starting anything else....I'm not starting anything else......

    I have 3 wall hangings and a table runner all partially done. Have you ever experienced this situation?
    Yes, and it gets to the point where I am so SICK of looking at them that I power out and finish them, just to get them off the table!

    yes, every now and then, i pull the ufo's out of storage and see if any of them excite me enough to finish... most often, they go back into storage

    It just comes down to saying "Today, I finish one! " once that first one gets done you're on a roll and go for it!

    Love your UFO's. They are all beautiful. Wish I had a sewing room to walk into!! My kitchen table is my sewing room and every meal it is clean up time.

    Nice projects. I have to put everything away before I start something else or I wouldn't have enough room.

    Ah, so you too have a PhD in quilting -- Projects Half Done.

    Oh, I am loving all the reply's How fun! I actually finished the two heart wall hanging just now. Been plowing into the UFO tasks to get them out of my sewing room. It is great to know I am not the only one who starts a project and then I get excited to start another one. I also have two tubs full of quilt tops and blocks to get done. I tell ya, the UFO's are just piling up in there.

    I don't have a pattern, I just made it up as I went. Not hard really. Just draw straight lines for the birdhouse and a circle for the hole. The bird is a free pattern you can just google it and find it.

    Hilarious!!! I will have to remember those. I don't have any pigs, I have a very nice shelf system in the closet for my fabric.
