I HAD to go to a store and buy binding. Yes, binding. I found the perfect binding. And while I was in the store, I looked and looked and looked around. The lady cutting fabric was busy with a lady having tons cut … so, I looked around some more and there was absolutely NOTHING that said, “Buy me!” or “take me home” except for the 1/2 yard of binding fabric. I’m afraid that I might be getting sick. Seriously. Is there something called fabric anorexia?

Another OH NO!!!
As I was searching through my stash looking for something I know I have. I found another UFO. Probably from 2008 or 2009. It was started at a murder mystery retreat. The quilt was a mystery and there was a murder mystery at the same time. It was sort of fun. One of the owners of the quilt shop / retreat centre was “killed” with a wavy rotary cutter. The evidence was clear: The “murder” weapon was near the “victim” with the red rick-rack circling his neck and a piece of red fabric (indicating blood) by his head. We were given clues throughout the weekend. Unfortunately, at the end, the rational for “who” the murderer was included a lot of clues that we were not given. So that part was frustrating! And the quilt … yes, the quilt! I finished the top with grandiose ideas to piece the back … and so it has sat and sat and sat … languishing … ignored and totally forgotten – until today! That brings my total UFOs at the start of 2018 up to 60. I’m still going to stick with finishing 28 for my PHD.
PHD in 2018 // UFO tally
With my latest UFO find – the number of UFOs left to complete has increased by 1. I certainly hope I do not find any more UFOs. If I do … I might just pretend that I didn’t find them.
