Tuesday's Tally....

yes, the days are getting shorter. That doesn't necessarily change the amount of time we have to sew, quilt and bind...but it's good to pause for a tally of how we are coming on our New Years Eve UFO Challenge. You gals are doing super well! We began on September 18th, and as of Oct. 20th we have managed to finish 39 of aging UFOs!! I think that is marvelous since each finish is a victory we couldn't quite manage to meet before. There certainly is strength in numbers!! So stitch on brave challengers...stitch on. And if you find a few minutes pop in and see what the gals are up to. I'm nearly the finish on my project #3. I had hoped to have it done last week,but....well, you know how that story goes..*VBS*

Just thought I'd leave a note to say... "I popped in on a couple of new Bloggers - What fun!!!"

I have actually finished 2 projects, but neither one of them was an aging UFO. But I keep going onward. I killed an iron, but pulled another one from the stash. Ever heard of anyone with a stash of irons? Me. I need to get the 2 Project Linus quilts bound and then you can mark 2 of the 3 off my list. I'll let you know when that happens.

Holy UFOs, Batman, I totally forgot to count mine, blog about it and get myself on the list!

Well, in my defense, things have been a tad busy in Scrapsville.

I didn't keep up with this challenge as well as I should have but I've finished 10 UFO's this year.

Thanks for inspiring us!

I have totally forgotten about this challenge! I have started and finished several projects in the last few weeks - two crocheted scarves, two Trick or Treat bags, four Stitcher's Angel projects. I haven't touched any of my UFOs. Maybe I'll get some done for Christmas. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Good for all the ladies taking part you your challenge this year Finn!!!
You'll have #3 done in not time I am sure! 8-)

I too have many UFOs to complete, but am not up to a challenge this year... soon though, I hope! 8-)

Happy stitchings!
