A Year for Completion of Projects (COP)!

Good Morning and Happy New Year – Again!  In my last post Happy 2021, I listed all the quilts that I want to quilt this year.  Now I am going to list my UFO’s by Technique that are PHD (Piled High and Deeper) waiting to become completed projects.

As far as goals go, I have THREE!   Number One is to Be Happy and No Negative Thoughts (BHNNT).(Maybe)  Number Two is to QUIT BUYING FABRIC AND PATTERNS (QBFAP)!  FOR SURE THIS TIME.  NUMBER THREE is to limit the time on the computer!  This is why I am calling it  a year for Completion of Projects (COP)!

Applique Projects:  In Various Stages of Completions:

    • Jacobean Lights – 4 blocks remaining – 95% complete
    • Stars Around the Garden Medallion –  90% complete waiting on Medallion
    • Dresden Plates – Applique Plates to background fabric – 75% complete
    • Stonefields – Finish Sections 6-10 – 60% complete
    • Celebrating Mary Brown – Continue making a block a month – 10% complete
    • A Bountiful Life  – Decision on doing a Border or make more blocks – ??

Pieced Projects:  In Various Stages:

    • OMIGOSH – 10 Blocks Completed – Working on 12 more.
    • The Arrowhead Block project – This will be a new project.  NEW
    • Sweet Stitches – All blocks completed – Need to decide on setting.
    • Antique Blue and White Quilt – Started in 2019 – Restart this year.  NEW
    • Eleanor Burns Egg Money Quilt – 1930 Fabric!  NEW
    • RSC Challenge 2021 – NEW

Embroidery Projects:  Prepared in 2019 – New Projects

    • Happy Little Things –  NEW
    • Aunt Bea’s Parlor – NEW

Sashiko: Pre printed panels

Knitting:

    • Knit more dish cloths – NEW
    • Work on re-learning how to knit socks – NEW

New Techniques/Hobbies:

    • Lap Weaving – I have all the materials just need to DO IT!
    • Cross Stitch – I tried it in early 2000 but did not stay with it.

I will start the year with To-Do Tuesdays with Roseanne to get me back in the groove.  I will attempt to join One Monthly Goal in February.

I am really trying to finish up these projects and getting finish the 30 quilts that require quilting.  I want to finish the hand applique projects first and then start on my embroidery along with the one hand quilted, Indian Summer quilt that needs to be completed.  A lot of work but it either “finish them” or give them away for someone else to complete!  We shall see how I do.  I should not be bored with any aspect of my hobbies this year!

Have a great 2021!

  1. Hurray for a great list! The cool thing about the UFO projects is that you can change your focus whenever you need a boost, but you are still making progress toward 100%!

  2. I like your top 3 the best…there is so much temptation ‘out there’, that it becomes difficult to enjoy what I already have!

    I see that Aunt Bea’s Parlor is on the list! 🙂

  3. Hi Nanette! I’ll be here, encouraging you on each week. It sounds like you have oodles of techniques to keep boredom away, and your UFO list will also help keep you focused. Here’s to a great 2021! and {{hugs}}. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Yes I do. I really like the To-Do Tuesday – I would rather go with things that are doable in a week rather than saying “oh I have to have this by the end of the month”. Now that one is a good one for the quilting of all those quilts! I know I could do 2 a month and may, but I have to be in the mood! Hugs – See you Next Tuesday!
