Last week’s task was a good one for me. I’m an expert list maker — it was right up my alley!
And boy, did I make lists!
I went through all my current lists and got them all updated. I made a new list of things I need and want to get done during July. And I got my Finished Quilts and UFO lists updated.
I feel like I’m getting a fresh start for the second half of the year.
I knew it had been awhile, but apparently, it’s been even longer than I thought since I updated my lists. My Finished Quilts list is at 309. Over half of those have been made for someone else, sold, or given away over the years. Whew! Where in my house would I store over 300 quilts? I still think I need to get rid of some more . . .
My UFOs list? Well . . . it grew . . . and I’m not sure I’ve found them all yet. Right now it stands at 91 (cringe) — but to my credit, 20 of those are simply waiting to be quilted. That helps a little, but not much. And I’m not done organizing, so that number may yet grow. I have some work to do . . .
Which leads me to this week’s task:
If you don’t have too many, this will be easy, but if you’re like me, you won’t even get all done with this in just one week!
I try to keep my UFOs in tubs, but I’m here to tell you — I don’t even own 91 tubs, so when the tubs are all full, I resort to boxes, sacks, drawers, and piles. Some piles probably have pieces for more than one UFO all mixed together in them — that’s not a good thing. I’m not real proud of that fact!
It’s my ultimate goal to get down to a respectable number of easily stored tubs — say, no more than 20 tops — 10 or 15 would be even better. Even better than that would be to only have that many UFOs or less! Ah, such a wonderful dream.
Like I said, I have work to do. And I’m beginning this week.
How about you?
Are your UFOs getting out of control? Or do you already have them all neatly stored and labelled?
Can you pick up a UFO and work on it without any issues?
Or does it need something in order for you to finish it?
Is it missing parts and pieces?
Now is the time to go through them and decide what needs done to either get rid of them, finish them, or re-think what you want to do with them (make it smaller? change the borders? different setting? anything to move it along).
I hope to finish at least 4 of mine this week. I’ll let you know how that goes. Let me know what you’re working on!
