    Ok, I am cheating just a bit since it isn't 2012 yet, but honestly I didn't think I would get this finished in 2011...I figured this would be my January post but TA-DA! This is the needlepoint Christmas stocking that I started this summer for my tiny baby grandson Rainn who was born in July at 1 pound 4 ounces. It was very scary for all of us and there are quite a few tears sewn into this as well, but he is doing AWESOME, is 5 months old and now weighs over 7 pounds...

    Congratulations - your grandson is so alert and must be the delight of everyone. I love his stocking, what a lovely way to celebrate the holiday season - new grandson, new stocking. Life must be good. See you in the new year.

    I'm in! First thing I guess I should finish is the tote bag my sister should have gotten for Christmas but didn't. Then I've got a Christmas wall hanging that I started for my own but that didn't get finished because Christmas gifts took precedence. I've got a couple of flannel receiving blankets to complete by the end of January for a baby shower too. There's a few to get me started and then I'll look into my piles and see what else I can finish.

    I'm in! I want to end the questions like, "Mom what ever happened to that great ....(insert description) you were working on?" I am doing the mystery Orca Bay quilt but maybe if I start with the closest to done ones I can keep to the schedule. Even if I only complete one with you guys as inspiration its better than none.

    Sherry that stocking is sooo cute, I love the pom pom on the hat. But, I have to say that Rainn is even cuter.

    Count me in too. Just off the top of my head I can count a log cabin/lone star combination, a snow white quite, a grape vine wall hanging. a cross stitched quilt, and a couple of other quilts. If I really starts looking into the different totes, I would scare myself with what I would actually find in the way of UFO's.

    You go, girl!! We'll be your inspiration! Or your task-masters?
    I need it too. And I think starting with the closest-to-done ones will be my best bet, too. I give you permission to ask me how I'm doing on my UFOs! -Ann

    Well, I am up to 14 UFO's, they are like gremlins, they multiply. I also realize that somewhere along the yellow quilting road I collected 27 quilt kits!!! My 2012 goal is to shop from stash. And start on those quilt kits. I hope the economy doesn't collapse without me shopping.

    I finally finished my DGD's fleece blanket. It was supposed to be for her B-day
    Here's the thread about why I had a hard time with this.

    Almost Jan. Yikes! I got started on rearranging my sewing area & have a 3" binder now full of patterns that I have printed off with dreams of doing on that elusive 'someday'. Next is deciding which of the UFO's to do first. Wish me luck. Happy New Year!
    Every day's a blessing.

    Well I spent the last two days organizing my fabric. I have two more projects to complete before the new year then I will tackle my first UFO. I promised my daughter it would be my first to work on in the new year. Little more organization and I am ready to go.

    well I dug out one of those UFOs I started on a BOM with the LQS and was astonished at myself. Why did I not finish it? I have the blocks done because you had to to get the next month's then I found that I had all the applique pieces cut out and ready to apply and the center already sewed down. Then I realized why I quit, I hit a snag on the borders. They want you to frame the outside borders then put your applique peices on, then sew to the center when done. Now there is no way i am going to do that. So last night I decided that I was going to finish this my way. I now have the borders sewn on the center, all the blocks assembled and now to do the applique. I have to remember how to do the vines for the applique. I may have changed this pattern if I was really wanting to add to it, but I do have my own longarm and quilting in the big 80" x 9.5 space will be a fun challenge. That is where the work will be. Hope to post a photo at the beginning of the new year when it is done. And yes, to get it completely done, I am going to sew the border down with my sewing machine. The only thing that may change this is if the quilting is so stunning that I have to put it in a show, then i will do by hand which may take me all of six months to do. (LOL)

    Where do I sign up? I want to do this. I don't know how many I will get done but I need this challenge to keep me focused. I am going to go down to my sewing area right now and start making a list.

    There is no way I could do one UFO a month. Maybe one a year, lol. I have a millenium quilt project that I started in the year 2000 after the sudden craze for "2000" everything including fabric. I did manage to complete a fancy millenium dress. I completed exactly six blocks of the quilt project. So I will drag this out after completing all my WIPs.

    I have a couple just waiting for the long cold winter and time on the couch to handquilt them. I am in, if you are still accepting entries. And if you aren't - I'm likely to try to finish them anyway! Just a few days ago (read - before Christmas) I managed to finish a little cross stitch that I had started for my daughter many, many moons ago. Found it while looking for something else. And gifted it to her son for the nursery. That was really rewarding!

    Ok... I got my first one for January finished a few days early. Had all these extra blocks sitting around and wanted to practice the 10 minute block. I just machine quilted it and used some leftover flannel for back and binding. I used one of my kids (read 37 years ago) old baby blankets (freshly washed) for the batting. Now I just need to find a litle baby or small one to give it to.I won't do the one a month thing either but every UFO I finish is one more useful thing instead of a bunch of fabric. :-)
