By the numbers....

I can happily say "there are a lot less UFOs in Blogland! Back in October, 28 stitchers decided to challenge themselves to finishing up some "old business", aka UFOs. 
28 of us stitched and stuffed and cut and ripped, working against the clock and the calendar. By January 1, 2011, there were 81 less UFOs in our closets, drawers and bins. And 46 additional projects got finished up as well! That gives the NYE UFO Countdown Challenge stitchers a grand total of 127 finished projects!! That makes Finn very happy! Every finish is a victory, and is such a good feeling when you can cross it OFF your "to do" list. I'm marching(or limping) forward into 2011 with Myra and her challenge to complete more projects half finished. I hope those of you who still have "miles to go before you sleep" find the mojo, or whatever it is, to keep 'keepin' on' with old projects. Hugs and thanks for the memories of another successful NYE UFO Challenge!

Thanks for the incentive, Finn! It was just what I needed. I also enjoyed "meeting" all the bloggers on the challenge list. I hope you do this again next year. I know I'll have plenty of UFOs still stacked up on the shelf.

Hurray for us! And a big bouquet of flowers for our cheerleader :- )

I'm ready to start the new year fresh. One remaining UFO from my list has to be completed in a few days; the other one will get done when it gets done. I'm ready for something new!!!

I agree, a big bouquet goes to our fearless leader. Thanks for challenging us to get those UFO's done. Your the best!! Hugs

Quite an accomplishment.

This was a lot of fun! Although there's still some UfO's on the shelf, I feel more relaxed about working on them while I get started on new projects. For this month, the priority will be to finish up on that last UFO!
Thank you so much Finn!
hugs,

My own thanks for giving me an incentive for 2011 -- No UFO's at the end of the year! I'll be seeing you over at Myra's toot sweet!!

This was a great challenge and even if I only finished one project, well, that would be a good thing too.

Thanks for hosting and providing the incentive and I look forward to later in the year when I will join another of your challenges.
