Sew It’s Finished

  Another year is almost over, and it’s the time for making resolutions…..not the “I must lose enough weight to turn into a supermodel” type resolutions, but ones you want to AND know you CAN stick to (with a bit of encouragement and support)….you know…the crafty ones!!! But before you can do that, you really need to take stock of what you have to get finished….which is what Dawn and I have been talking about for the past couple of weeks. We’ve discovered we are both the type to start projects, fully intent on getting them done…..until another one that JUST HAS to be made is begun!!!!   Hence, a never-ending pile of UFO’s. 002 So we’ve made a pact and we would like you to come along and join us for the challenge…… The challenge is: image 1  Make a list of all your UFO’s   (and if you’re anything like me….this isn’t as easy as it sounds!!!!) 2 Prioritise them 3. Add them to your sidebar What do you get out of it???? Encouragement and support from crafty like-minded people….and the satisfaction of knowing you’re getting things done! How do you join in???? We thought the best way around it was to start a blog for those who want to join us.  We have called it: “Sew It’s Finished” 2011 UFO Challenge So….if you leave a comment either here, or on Dawn’s blog, we’ll email you with the details.  This is open to the first 100 people.  More can join in, but you will only go on to a blog roll
and  not be able to do posts on our new blog of your finishes.
Sorry this is a Blogger rule not ours... Have a think??? Do you want to finish some UFO's and have some help and encouragement along the way? Start writing that list! If you’re making new year’s resolutions…..now’s the time!!!!!!   Have the Best New Year Celebrations and may your bobbins always be full in 2011 Sugary hugs Wendy  8O) image Don’t forget….It’s your last chance to go here and leave a comment  to go into the draw to win a free 12 month subscription to the Quilt Pattern Magazine before we turn into pumpkins at midnight tonight!!! Fingers crossed!!!!     Good luck!
