UFO’s & WIP’s

UFO’s and WIP’s. If you belong to any craft related groups you probably see these acronyms a lot! UFO stands for UnFinished Objects and WIP stands for Works In Progress. Personally, I have literally dozens of these!!

Here is my current list:

4 quilt projects in progress; a paper pieced project, a cathedral window project, a machine pieced project and a set of appliqued wall hangings for the studio. Also, three more full size quilts that I have purchased the fabric for but have not yet started.

6 Crochet projects in progress; a sweater, a bunny and a baby toy. These have probably been untouched WIP’s long enough now to be relegated to UFO’s. Also molly flowers I plan to turn into a clutch; Misc. flowers I plan to use to create a garden on canvas; and a gorgeous floral crocheted table runner.

2 cross-stitch projects in progress; a gorgeous set of nutcrackers and a beautiful store front. I also have one for the studio that I have completed the stitching but is still waiting to be washed and blocked! Oh and 2 embroidery projects on the back burner that I have purchased the supplies for but have not yet started.

3 jewelry projects; 2 beaded bracelets and a crocheted wrist cuff.

Painted Christmas Ornaments that have been started but not yet finished.

A stack of vintage patterns that I plan to frame.

And a barn quilt that has been finished for months but needs to be sealed before delivering to my mother.

And let’s be honest. I’m sure there are many, many more that are hiding out somewhere in my craft room!

And you know what…..???? I am ok with it! lol At least I am not going to be bored!

I must say, though, I am determined to finish some of these up soon. I mean, there are about 20,000 more projects just waiting for me to start!

Speaking of projects, I have created a new Craft Group on Facebook.
Lavender Crossings Crafts Group
