I'm in! I have been trying to finish UFO as one of my main goals for awhile now. I have put a good dent in it but this list will help me keep on going. I do find that if I have a few at the ready I can pick them up and do a little on them each time I am sewing it moves them along. Often if I say I'll give you fifteen minutes now....once started I stay with it longer than that, it's good!

I also have started writing on my calendar in the sewing room what I was working on for that month. It makes a great diary when you look at the calendar later. It also helps if I'm playing catch up on making labels and can't remember when I finished. I try to remember to honor a finished job rather than beat myself up over all the unfinished ones! More positive! Most of the finished ones go to my kids or grandkids and I forget all the things I have done until I visit their house! What I see at home are things I was working on for me - those get shoved aside when something with a deadline hits the plans. Food for thought! Start your engines!

I'm in. I didn't get 12 lst year, but I did do 8 and that's 8 more than i would have w/o this challenge. as for which UFO to start first-I would go with an easy one for that feeling of accomplishment right off the bat. I'm all about instant gratification!!

Count me in I have 4 tops that need quilted, and I keep setting them aside to start new quilts. I vow to finish them. I have a long arm quilt shop here that rents out time on 2 machines for $15 an hour, I love that shop, I can finish them myself instead of sending them away, and the average twin takes me about 3 hours because I like to quilt very dense.

I have been reading the message boards for quite a while now and have enjoyed them immensely, but until now I have not written anything or replied to any topics.
With this challenge, however, I too want to join in the hope that all those UFO's that are lurking in the various parts of the house will finally be put to rest!! So you can count me in too!

Thank you for the idea...Iris :-D

I am drowning in UFO's. This will be a great challenge for me. I also need to learn how to take and send photos.

I'm in. I'm going to take baby steps so my system isn't shocked by the unusual feelings of finishing. I just remembered (as I was adding up a mental list of UFOs), a little project I started for my DMinLaw. It's a window for every month. So that gives me 12 mini projects to start with. Sure would love to get them made for her to enjoy in her nursing home room.
Thanks for starting this!
