Thanks for all the good wishes yesterday and your hugs. It was a late night last night, reading condolence cards with Liz, and helping her milk the cow in the dark!! We had quite a few laughs when we also slipped in the mud outside the milking pen, with fresh eggs in our pockets from where the chooks have been laying outside their boxes! We figured Graham would be watching us and hoping we’d fall and scramble those eggs 🙂
So on to organizing UFOs! My first step is to hunt them all up – in boxes, tubs, cupboards, suitcases (oh no! I forgot I have a suitcase out in the caravan… I hope there aren’t any more UFOs out there!!!) and then lay them all out on the biggest table I have….
This pic was taken the last time I attempted to get my UFOs organized, and I’m pleased to say that quite a few of those projects on the table have been completed, but there are a lot that are still UFOs today.
I laid them all out in my studio last month and as the table got too full, I started putting them in tubs:
I also divided them into different types of tubs, like the one above is obviously my Christmas one. The other specific tub that I put UFOs straight into as I sorted was the tub for Flimsies. As much as possible, I put the flimsies in with some backing so that I don’t have to go hunting for that when I go to quilt them.
I tried to make sure I kept patterns with the UFOs, any extra fabric needed, special thread or rulers, and even binding with the flimsies that I had already cut out so that it means there will be less hunting and organizing to do when I actually work on the project.
Once I had them all organized into piles, I … oh, that will be for tomorrow’s post, otherwise I won’t have anything left to write about for the rest of the month!
Hope you are all having a great day,
