2012 - The Year of the UFO

The finished UFO, that is!  Yes, this year I am joining Judy's 2012 UFO Challenge.  The only thing is, I have soooo many UFOs and kits that I can't narrow it down to a list of 12.  That, and the fact that I have control issues.  I'm thinking it's a residual side-effect of OCD!  LOL! 

Check out my UFO/kit craziness below.  The UFOs are in the smaller storage boxes and the kits are in the large bins.

So, what I'm going to do is choose a UFO or kit each month to work on and hopefully complete.  That way I can also gauge what my real life plans are each month and choose it to correspond with how busy or non-busy I will be that month.  Then I won't be stressed with having a UFO that needs a lot done to it during a month where I won't have as much time to dedicate to it as I would need.

Sounds like a plan to me,

Sounds like a great plan to me! I can't commit to the challenge, but I'm hoping to finish a few of my own this coming year! Of course, that won't stop me from starting many more, too! lol

Have a great Christmas, Suzy!

Wow, what a lot of UFO's. One a month is a really nice goal. Hope it helps!

Sounds like a good plan to me!! I did Judy's UFO Challenge last year and just figured I would work that month on the bigger projects and allow them to be UFO for the following year. That worked for me last year. But this year I just hope to get er done! Good luck and have fun working on your quilts. I'll be cheering you on!

We all have the big list of UFOs and WIP and I'm sure that your list of 12 are on your computer somewhere and when Judy tells us the number, you'll show it to us (wink, wink).

I think there were one or two that I subbed in during the year because on that day, it's what appealed to me.

But, glad you are joining the crew.. look forward to seeing some of the stuff done.

Holy cow that's organized...are you sure you're a quilter?! That tidiness makes me just want to come over and start sewing and make a BIG mess for you! I look forward to seeing what those boxes contain as you link up each month...
