Sew have you finished it!

 How is your Sewing projects from this year going...
 Are they gone?
Have you finished all those items that you wanted to do
Well I can answer that for me NO NO NO NO
 I had big plans but I saw another item..LOL
that I just had to make and I almost made it and.....
 I put all my other UFO's on the back burner again...
 Are you like that????
Always trying to finish but 
something else catches your eye that you have to make,
 and the cycle starts again... 
almost finish it then another one... so on and so on
 Wendy and I had been chatting about trying to finish our UFO's
 and having a challenge...
 Well here's the challenge
 Make a list and Prioritise the items...
 Easy!
 Umm... maybe?
 But we thought as a way of encouraging one another 
we would start a BLOG for those who want to join us.
We have called it
'Sew its Finished'
 2011 UFO Challenge.
 and if you leave a comment here or on Wendy's blog
 and we'll email you with the details.
 You will need to be able to do blog posts
 so an idea of blogging would be good!

 The blog is open to the first 100 people.
 More can join in, but you will only go on to a blog roll
 and  not be able to do posts on our new blog of your finishes.
 Sorry this is a blogger rule not ours...
 Have a think??? Do you want to finish some UFO's
and have some help and encouragment along the way.
 Start writing that list.

 Then come join us in this challenge!

 Happy New Year
 Sweet Cinnamon-y Hugs

I'd be interested in joining. I already have all my wips listed on my side bar.... so I guess I at least know the damage! I did start the Vignette quilt yesterday too... oops!!!!

Maria said...

Would love to join you in the UFO challenge because who has not got HEAPS of them.
Did pop over to Wendy's. She has already finished her first Block in the Redwork BOM.I was strong and did not sign up for that.

I would love to definitely be in. I have UFO's coming out my ears and have "sort of" organised what I want to finish, but need major encouragement (by prodding me and saying "you will not start anything new until you finish things! LOL)

bettsylyn said...

I need to finish some UFOs and would like to join in. I even have one planned for this year to finish that I think I started in about 1994 or 1995 - that's a real priority. I'm also good a cheering others on.

sunny said...

I would certainly welcome some encouragement to get some UFO's finished! Please sign me up.

Wickedly Divine Creations said...

I know I could use some gentle nudging...or big old booted butt kick...to get someof my UFO's done! I'll join in :)

Lyn said...

Gosh I need help! Like the other comments I have so many things that I need to work on and finish( or even start which is far worse!!) trouble is that there is always something new coming out that I like the look of -perhaps I need willpower!(at least until I get some of my UFO's finished) I don't have my own blog so would it be necessary to start one of my own as well or can I just take part in this one? Any advice would be most welcome!

Chris H said...

That is an excellent idea, luckily for me I have been working on all my UFO's lately and only have a few left!
yaaaaa.
HAPPY NEW YEAR Chick.

Susan said...

Please count me in - I already have a list - well I probably have a few of them as well - but I will consolidate and achieve!!! (well I say that now!!)

Erin said...

I already have a list as part of another 2011 UFO challenge, but I would love to be part of the blog - will help keep me motivated!!! :)
I just want to finish one thing a month...surely I can do that... ;)

Celine said...

That's such a great idea. Making a list, which means admitting to my ever-growing list of UFOs. When I first started quilting I couldn't understand how people could have UFOs... ah ah ah. Anyway I have a few projects that I would be delighted to finish in 2011, maybe this is the puch I need. Happy New Year

A Girl said...

What a great idea! I would love to join your challenge. I have more that a few items in the works. :)

Melody said...

I identify with you completely. I vowed I would not start anything new till I finished all my unfinished projects in 2010. This lasted about 5 days and then I started a whole lot of new projects. I'd love to be part of this group. I think it's a great idea.
Have a happy new year's day and a wonderful 2011

Allie said...

I think I'm just going to have fun watching, Dawn - I don't have many ufo's, but tons of new patterns I need to get out of my head, onto paper, and into fabric! Maybe I'll "catch" some of your energy!

Christine said...

great idea...love to be encouraged to finish my projects started!!

Doris said...

You must have read my mind. Please count me in as I'm planning to finish heaps of UFO's this year!!

Diana said...

I would like to join, i've started too many projects the last two years. This could keep me focused on those projects!
Diana

Phyllis said...

Happy New Year, Dawn.

Add me to the list. I have several projects I really need to finish!!

I've added this to my blog.

Narelle said...

Hi Dawn,
I've commented over at Wendy's and already have a 'UFOs for 2011' list on my blog.
Happy New Year!

Jude said...

i would love to join and we all need encouragement to finish those projects that have lost the initial excitement.

Farm Girl said...

Hi Dawn, I'd like to be a part of your UFO plan. I do have a couple of things I'm planning on starting soon, but would also love to get a few things finished and off my conscience too!

Stephanie said...

I managed to be satisfied with the handmade gifts I was able to complete. They were loved and that's what matters. I'll be watching your UFO progress. Best of luck to everyone "playing" along.

BubzRugz said...

Jo in TAS said...

Hi Dawn,
Count me in if there's still room, I think it may take me a week to get a list in order!

Lyn said...
