So did you find your oldest UFO?
I found mine.
I also found the backing.
And what’s even more surprising? The binding fabric was with it, too!
Who knew I was so organized? I sure didn’t!
Here’s a sneak peek. Lovely 80’s colors, huh?
I still have hope that it will be a really lovely quilt in spite of its age. We shall see. Those colors are actually coming back around!
My next task is to measure it and see if I have the proper batting for it, and then see where in the longarm schedule I can fit it in. Probably not for awhile, I’m guessing, since I’m still running behind from last year.
But it’s already time for the next task, so here we go!
I say “work on”, because if yours are like mine, you can’t do the entire thing in just one week!
And if yours are already all neat and organized, just look through them and make sure that you still want them all. If not, you could get rid of the ones you don’t want or need, and make way for more.
My goal for this task is to go through some of the magazines and make sure I still want to keep them, and if I do, find a good spot to put them, and if I don’t, find them a new home.
I also want to clean out the bookcase in my office, and get the books unpacked and on the shelves. Right now, the bookcase is a messy catchall . . .
. . . and most of the books are still in boxes:
Just to have this much more stuff organized will make a huge difference around here.
So how about you? Are your books and magazines in need of organizing? Or do you already have them right where you want them?
