I’m all up for starting afresh at the beginning of each year…believe me, I need every incentive I can get to finish that ever-growing list of UFOs, so I was excited when I read Fee’s post about the APQ’s UFO Challenge 2015.
It’s so logical and seems so easy….It’s one of those, ‘why didn’t I think of that’ moments… Simply….
1. Download the chart.
2. Fill in twelve projects that you want to finish this year. You can choose from any of your UFOs. If you have a kit you bought but never opened or fabric you've been holding on to for too long, add using it up to the list. Embroidery, knitting, crochet, scrapbooking, and painting can count toward your list, too!
3. On the first Monday of each month, they'll randomly draw a number 1--12. That number will correspond with which number project you work on throughout the month. Fill in the description of where you were in the project before you start.
4. At the end of the month, fill in your progress and post pictures
5. By the end of the year, you'll have 12 finished projects! Or you'll at least have made a significant dent in your stack of UFOs.
So I’ve downloaded my list from here, and completed it with just ‘some’ of the many UFOs tucked away.
Believe me, I’ve tried to write all of them down and work my way through them but it always seems so overwhelming that I don’t even start, so this is one way to at least get 12 on the list done…..and knowing me (the procrastinator that I am), once I’ve starting and had some success, there might actually be MORE than 12 that get completed, because we all know starting is the hardest part! (don’t we?……Or is it just me?)
This month number 4 was randomly chosen, so that means I’m working on the Christmas Blessings Quilt, so I did a little more last night, adding some stitching to one of the blocks.
I have high hopes. Will you join me?
