another challenge!

Oh how I love a good challenge!  Jacquie is hosting another UFO (Unfinished Objects) challenge!  She is the mastermind behind this past April's Spring to Finish challenge.

How many UFO's do you have that you can finish before January 1?  Go to that link, comment on her post and tell her.

I counted mine up and there are a whopping 14.  And that's not all I have unfinished just the ones that need to get done soon!  It's a good number though, because I figure that's one project per week until the end of the year.  Which means one Sew & Tell post per week!!!  Oh yeah, I love it when stuff like that works out.   Edited:  Thanks Sue for getting me out of denial!  I blame it on placenta brain - there are really only about SEVEN weeks left, so that more like TWO Sew & Tells per week.  Sheesh.   I'd better get busy!!

Here is my list:
Dress for the ball (see one down already!)
4 bags
Bird quilt
A quilt for my daughters birthday
a wallhanging to go with above quilt
my emmaline apron
pillows for my bed
put the zipper in my duvet cover (that I made LAST fall)
tablerunner for Christmas present
2 birthday presents

I had to be vague on some of these, as they are gifts.  Wish me luck!  But better yet, why don't you join in? And then share your progress on Sew & Tell!

Oh yes, and I did I mention there are prizes?  We will all report back on Jan. 1 on how many we each completed - and that's how many entries you'll have in the drawing!  Oh yea!

By the way - you guys are so nice and generous with your compliments on my photos from the ball.  You made me feel much better than before I posted them.  :)

14? Wowzers...that's not a lot! LOL

It's great to have motivation...expecially when the holidays are right around the corner.

Don't forget to take care of yourself and those who love you and want to see you happy and healthy!

Good luck with the challenge! My goal is to finish next year with less UFOs than this year :) I'm hopeless.

SueWis said...

Wow, you are ambitious! Looks like a fun and varied list, too.

Um, I hate to rain on your parade but I don't see 14 weeks left in the year on my calendar. More like 1/2 that many.

SueWis said...

Ha! I was pretty excited to think there were that many weeks left until the calendar ruined it for me. :)

I have a long list myself but most of them have to remain a secret for awhile.

Seriously?! Fourteen projects before January 1st? You. Are. Crazy. Everything is going on the back burner until I finish a queen size double wedding ring quilt (it's a Christmas present). Can that project count for 10? Sigh.

You can totally do it! I can't wait to see them all :)

Nothing like prizes to give you a push! Good luck and can't wait to see your wonderful finished creations!

This is a great idea, I love it. I only have 6, maybe 7 UFO's, but, I will do my best to get them finished by Jan. 1, 2010. WOW, 2010, that really sounds weird. Anyway, good luck.
