UFO Challenge 2012

OK, I'm going to give this another try - blogging and UFO busting, that is. Where did I get the idea that "empty nest" meant empty life. We dropped Patrick off at Notre Dame a little over 4 months ago and I don't think I have had a busier 4 months since the boys were very little. It's been a wonderful busy but crazy busy.

But the New Year means a new resolution to tackle these dang UFOs so I will make the list and resolve to blog.

2012 UFOs

1. Crayon Box
2. Christmas Pineapple Blossom
3. Twister
4. Blue and White Checkerboard
5. I Spy
6. Sister's Choice
7. Homespun Bear Paw
8. Green Color Challenge

8. Red Four Patch
9. Batik Log Cabin
10. Batik Spendid Stars
11. TLC Juvenile Crumbs
12. 1930s Cobblestone

The terribly embarrassing thing is that only 4 of these are different from last years list. The good thing, most of the UFOs made some form of progress last year and I only have one new UFO. I finished 6 UFOs, made many tote bags, 15 casserole totes, and many baby outfits. Pretty unimpressive but that makes it easy to do better this year. :)

Me too! I have to make at least two baby quilts this year, so I have a reason to use up some of the juveniles again! I also need to get a few of my UFOs finished. Gotta catch up with my long arm paid projects first...

You just send that batik log cabin this way and then you will have 1 less UFO - deal? Glad you are all back to blogging!!

I almost gave up on seeing any postings from you this year. Glad to see that you are going to work on those dang ufos-but hey at least most of them are into tops. Not so lucky here.
