Two months of the year are over … but that leaves 10 more months to complete everything! Lots of time! Well, I hope that’s lots of time!
I haven’t finished any more UFOs since my last report, but one is close. A couple more hours of quilting and then trimming and binding. It is close … sew close …
I did have 2 new starts since the mid-Feb report. “Dust off your Book” was started and is now finished. I’ll be posting about it on March 2. And, I did start the March Island Batik project. I’m loving it! But it has a ways to go before completion!
I just realized that I did a few embroidery projects that were not on the “Starts in 2020” list! But they did get finished!
In previous posts, I’ve talked about various stratigies to helping you manage your UFOs …

Today … Be Selective
One of the major reasons we have UFOs is that we are excited about starting something new! Face it, we LOVE to create and starting something new is exciting and can be totally DISTRACTING!!! When starting a new project, we need to assess our own situation.
I’ve said this before,Raewyn from StitchingFarmGirl told me that when she’s tempted to start a new project she “look(s) at my big list of things to achieve that’s hanging on the wall (in full view) – it’s easy then to sigh and say ‘next time’…!”
Having your list in plain sight helps to remind you of what you need to do. Now, also remember, this is a list that YOU have chosen. You didn’t give any of those projects away, so we assume that YOU want to finish them. Right?
SEW, when starting a new project, be selective. Of course, if you’re doing the PHD in 2020, then you need to assess if you can finish it this year. If it’s a new technique you want to try, consider making a table runner instead of a queen or king size quilt!
