When I came across the 31 Days website and challenge, I thought, hmmmm… that sounds like fun… and hmmm… that sounds totally crazy! I am not a regular blogger at the moment, so how would I be able to do 31 days straight? And on top of it being a crazy idea in a “normal” world, my world is about to change with yet another international move…. I had many thoughts of quitting before I even started, but then I thought even though it seems like the worst time to do a challenge like this, I am going to give it a go!
The topic I have chosen for the 31 Day challenge is Quilting UFOs. I think I should be able to write a bit about this because I do believe I am the Queen of UFOs! In a few days I will reveal exactly how many UFOs I have, or for those who have no idea what I am talking about, Unfinished Objects. They consist of patchwork, flimsies, crochet, knitting and other sewing projects like aprons and non-quilted table runners.
With all my moving around I seem to drag them with me wherever I go, and when you look at the list that I made HERE, I have actually finished very few since I wrote and posted that. AND I also acquired
some more heaps more since then, so by the end of this month I will update that list.
For this series I am going to concentrate on my quilting and patchwork UFOs. My yarn treasures I will ignore for now 🙂 There are not so many of them, and they are just things I pick up every now and then.
During this 31 Day challenge I will not only be writing about UFOs, but I will also be working on a few and giving you weekly “Show and Tell” updates on a Friday. I hope that by the end of the month I will be able get some UFOs finished and also motivate you to start organizing and finishing your own UFOs.
You can come here for links to each day of the series:
Day 1 – this post you are reading 🙂
So here’s to a busy but fun month! Now I am curious… how many UFOs do you have?
