Kickin' it....

into gear that is. I'm an older model(lol)and I start up slow...*VBS* There are a few more questions about the New Years Eve Challenge, so here goes!I'm "getting started" with this UFO. The next time I show it, it will be a Q.U.I.L.T. Clare asked about listing your projects on the sidebar, and I think that is a wonderful idea! I'm not going to because I change mind very, very often! I will, however, post a picture of each UFO as I get started on it, and again when it's "Finished", then I'll list it on my side bar!
Another question from Paula and Sweet Pea, "does finished mean a finished quilt or is a finished flimsey finished"? Good question..excellent in fact, LOL, but only YOU know the answer to that one. As I said on the 26th, "finished" means different things to different people. You need to fill in the blank on that one yourself, and I'll give a clue "there are NO wrong answers" *vbs* I've put link to everyone who is participating so far. I checked and they all work, altho they won't take you to the exact post except for Clare's. Apparently I haven't mastered doing tha as yet!

I'm not a deadline or goal person but I need to be. I really have a lot of UFOs that need finished so I'm going all out and saying 8 finished quilts. I just laid them out on my audition bed. First step is to make borders for those that need them. It's that quilting the flimsy that I am so bad about getting to so that is big on my goal. I'm also not very realistic about how long it takes me to do things so....

I admire all of you who are going to get so many items finished this year. I am afraid of the "Gods of Fate". If I said I would finish whatever by the end of the year, I feel that I would very shortly fall and break both of my arms. I had to correct the previous sentence. It sounded really weird when there was a "d" on the end of the word break.

I am goin' to try!! You know why? Because I have THE VERY Same Ufo in your picture! The very same blocks!!

I like that idea to post a list of the *finished* UFO's rather than all the ones waiting for attention!

MYRA said...

I love that block Finn! A must make in my future... 8-)
Does the quilt I finished today count? hehehehehe... devilish grin...
I'll answer my own question... NO!!! hehehehe...
From this point forward! Finn's Challenge!
Happy stitchings people! 8-)

I like the idea of listing the finished quilts in the side bar. Well finished as in what we think is finished.

BTW I've bound Crumbs!

Hi Finn! Here I am the Challenge Glutton! I can't pass on a challenge. someone throws the gauntlet and I have to pick it up. Just got back from the Jersey shore and i'm playing catch up.

I am jumping in for the New Year's Challenge. I have two really "well aged" quilts that I think I can finish before January 1 so add me to your list..

Love your blog's "makeover"!

Hi Finn,
Revamping my blog I lost a lot of my blog links. Finally found yours again. Good to see you are busy as ever. Have a nice weekend

Cher said...

I like listing my finishes too! thanks for the feedback on the questions.

Hi Finn,
I'd like to join your challenge to push myself into some finishes. I have two tops to complete, one wall hanging half quilted and a small quilt basted ready for quilting. So that's 4 finishes for me. I won't include projects that I already need to finish for swaps etc.

My August 31st post shows a green/pink quilt. This can be #1. Looking forward to the challenge. Thanks
