As I was sorting through my UFOs last month, I came across a few that I completely forgot I had. Even worse, I had no idea what I was making! Two thoughts crossed my mind at this stage:
1. Oh my goodness, I really am getting old!!!!
2. I need to start making notes with all my projects!
It really is ridiculous that this can happen! I’m sure it has never happened to you 🙂 I mean these quilts I started were ones that I probably thought were going to be brilliant and possibly the next quilt to go viral on the internet…. And a few years later I totally forgot what I was making….
I showed you a pic of one of them in yesterday’s post, the 10″ squares and half square triangles. Here is another one, made from a honey bun and I assume meant to be for a baby or cot quilt:
It looks like I made 5 stratas, and then… what I was going to do next is anyone’s guess!
So what to do with these UFOs that I have no memory of even starting, or perhaps just a vague one, and that have no notes, no accompanying pattern…. no clues as to what it was meant to be?
1. Phone a friend
In my case, Alice, who usually knows what I am doing, but then again, sometimes she has also forgotten so then we are back to square one…
2. Make it up as you go along
Which is probably what I was doing in the first place since there was no clear pattern or instructions attached.
3. Just finish it somehow
In other words, it really doesn’t matter what it was supposed to be, it is now going to be something totally different and unique and I am still going to love it… or give it away and someone else will love it.
And wouldn’t it be funny if I finished it and it actually turned out to be what I originally meant it to be? Of course I will never know because I forgot…. Sigh….
Please tell me you have some of these UFOs in your house???
