One More!

Cleaning up in the New Year is always a good feeling.  Whether you are cleaning up your sewing room, closets, or project baskets - it feels good to clean out the old and reorganize.  I think we all do this periodically and I found myself doing a bit of this yesterday... and of course, guess what I found.  More UFOs!!!!!  It's not that I forgot about these projects, I just wasn't thinking of them when I made my 2014 UFO list. :-).  By the way,  I loved Elita's comment on my last post about calling them PhDs (Projects Half Done) rather than UFOs.  I agree that it has a much better ring to it!
 So I am adding this table runner to my 2014 UFO list.  I started this in 2010 ( I think) and it is called Uncle Sam's Hat and it is based on a hooked rug design by Polly Minick.  I would really like to get this one done!
I need to finish the applique, quilt it and bind it. 
However, I think I will be spending my Slow Sunday Stitching working on the Hospitality Table block from the Bountiful Life quilt.  Thanks again to Kathy's Quilts for her weekly linky party.
Our eldest cat, Miss Suzi, is feeling poorly, so it's a good day to stay close by and stitch!

Happy Stitching!

  1. I think it is nice to have choices of projects to work on. Keeps everything fresh! Your blocks look wonderful, and if you keep slow stitching they will all eventually get finished.

  2. I know what you mean about finding UFOs you have forgotten about. I saw my first quilt which I never finished in a tub in the garage the other day and it is 19 years old! Yikes! Enjoy Slow Stitching Sunday!

  6. I like the idea of PhDs instead of UFOs. It doesn't matter what we call them because that doesn't get them done. I hope you get lots of stitching done. I keep a list of all my finishes each year. I do get lots done but not always lots of PhDs.

    1. Yes, I thought the PhDs was very clever! It is good to look back at our accomplishments each year as well as our UFOs. I need to do that this year!

  10. Oh, I totally agree! A PhD makes you sound smart. And a UFO makes you sound crazy! Ha, ha! What a lovely stash of Works in Progress you have accumulated, Debra. Looking forward to seeing your finishes this year!
