No More than 3 UFO's in the house!

Unfinished Objects (UFO's) litter my house. As I have posted before, I love to start projects but I have a really hard time finishing them. I am making a new vow for this fall (when knitting kicks into high gear), I am trying to cut down my UFO's to 3 projects at a time, and this includes knitting, crochet, quilting, cross-stitch and sewing. Will this be possible? Probably not at first, but I am going to try my hardest. My very first project is to finish the many UFO's I already have in my house. I am giving myself this next month to work only on these half finished projects. ~If I can help it~

To start with, I finished my daughters biscuit quilt and I didn't even start another project the whole time I was working on her quilt. That is very impressive for me. Of course it will be a long time before I ever do a biscuit quilt again, but that is beside the point! :) Biscuit quilts are not as easy as they look (a definite 9.5 out of 10 on the old frustration meter).

Next I am going to work on some of the knitting & crochet projects that I have abandoned over this warm summer season. Knitting in the summer sucks, but as the season is starting to change, knitting will be a welcome warm diversion.

This is my least until the next cute pattern comes out! :)

The quilt definitely gets (at least) 9.5/10 for it's finish. No matter what you said, it looks great! I hope the Little One comes to appreciate it as time goes by.

And good call on limiting the projects!

Thanks! She seems to be enjoying the quilt so far :)

I actually worked on one of my UFO's last night and didn't even start a new project! I really wanted to, but I didn't!

Yay for me!!
