Projects-not completed!!!!

I came across some projects that I have all good intentions on finishing. Well....what is my problem. One thing, I did just find them and here Peg's challenge is almost over. Some I had from teaching quilt classes at the shop.

But I ask the question. Is anyone else like me. Do you start so many and put them aside? Am I the only one? There are a lot of us that joined the challenge. Maybe that's the answer to my question.

I am determined to finish things I've started. I've been doing some reading to help me with this, if I just finish the book.

Here are just some of them....

This is a 4th of July project and a picture frame with an old quilt in it that I'm doing handwork on.This is a purse in the works.... Cute Cowboys...



Christmas runner, "Jesus Is The Reason For The Season" only needs the handwork on the binding.... I guess I kinda had doubts on this one, Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus being snowmen.

And last a baby quilt, needs quilting. I have to stop looking for stuff.

So cute it has the prayer embroidered with Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.

I am afraid I suffer from that same compunction.... can't seem to not want to start the things I see others doing! Maybe its a virus...and we just can't help it.

Bonnie you've got some cute stuff going there! I just put a list of UFOs on my sidebar today and I didn't even list them all so I feel you're pain. :) I'm determined to work on them, one at a time, until they are finished. I'm holding myself accountable - want to join me? And I love that puppy enbroidery and your guest towels? What are those patterns from? Blessings, marlene

You're not alone...many of us quilters have several things going at once, some to be finished eventually and some not. I don't worry about it anymore, I want quilting to be fun and no guilt. If I finish, I finish.

I have enjoyed Peg's challenge and it is nice to get things finished....although I have things that will never be finished and I am fine with that.....I'm with Connie...No guilt here either!!

Hi Bonnie, Well it looks like this virus has spread to other art forms as well because I'm the Queen of UFO's. I have projects that are smothered in 10 year old dust bunny fuzz so thick I don't think I'll ever be able to shake it off..... Lovely unfinished good intentions you have started, even in their un-finished state they are amazing, I can't wait to see them in their complete form.
Take care Hugs Deborah

You are not alone, I´m sure. A few weeks ago I did something unusual for me, I finished a quilt. That´s because it was a gift for a special occasion. But feel no guilt, you must have fun!

Hi Bonnie,
Of course, I'm pretty sure that we/I have projects that need to be completed. You are NOT alone. Just love the little Dog with a prayer:) Is it for sale??The cards that I make, are always a project to "finish" and put away.Take care. Warmly, Deb

Lol yes... I do the same thing! Glad to see it isn't just me. Peg's challenge has helped me clear out my cupboard!

LOVE your UFOs! (UnFinished Objects....) When we moved, I found three gorgeous quilt tops that I had made in the previous years and never quilted - 2 of which were hand applique!! DUH. That was 14 months ago. I just bought batting and backing last week.......

Maybe if I get my UFOs out and photograph them, then commit publicly (bloggily) to finishing them, I might actually FINISH them!

You do not travel alone. :-)))

YES! I have my package!!! THANK YOU!! I haven't opened it yet -- I want to photograph the Big Reveal.
