Just words

I have decided to join Carrie's Nothing but UFO'S in 2013' challenge. That does not mean that I won't be starting anything new this year. It means that I will be spending lots of time on UFO's, hoping to get some finished. Yesterday, I started counting and stopped at 19, mainly unfinished quilt (tops).
I thought I had one or two Schnibbles to finish. Seams I have 6 ... Ugh )o:
But with this challenge, I am sure I will finish some, if not all.

In January I will try to:
1. Finish Adrienne's FQS BOM 2011 quilt - binding
2. Finish Thijme's Stained Glass quilt - quilting and binding
3. Work on (hopefully finish) the stocking Advent's Calendar I started in November

If you want to learn more about this challenge, please visit Carrie's blog. Each month you also have the chance to win a price, when finishing a project from A to Z. A great price for January has already been announced here.


Ik heb besloten, mee te doen aan Carrie's 'Nothing but UFO'S in 2013' challenge. Dat betekent natuurlijk niet dat ik niet met iets nieuws zal beginnen dit jaar. Maar, het is wel de bedoeling dat ik heel veel tijd ga besteden aan vooral quilts die ik ooit begonnen ben, in de hoop heel wat af te kunnen maken. Gisteren ben ik met tellen begonnen, maar ben bij 19 opgehouden. Het zijn vooral quilt(tops).
Ik dacht dat ik slechts 2 Schnibbles had om af te maken. Blijken het er 6 te zijn ... jeetje ...
Maar, met deze uitdaging hoop ik er toch heel wat af te krijgen in 2013.

In januari ga ik proberen:

1. Adrienne's FQS BOM 2011 quilt af te maken - binding
2. Thijme's Stained Glass quilt af te maken - quilten en binding
3. Aan de  Stocking Advent's Calendar werken en hopelijk afmaken.

Als je meer over deze uitdaging wilt weten, ga dan naar Carrie's blog. Iedere maand heb je ook de kans een prijs te winnen, als je een project van A tot Z hebt afgemaakt. Voor januari heeft ze al een heel mooie prijs. Kijk maar eens.

Fabulous idea. At 2 or 3 UFO's a month that is 24 to 36 items. I only have a few quilty UFO's but I feel this is a year to get things done so I might join in.

Lynn zei

Good luck, I've already started on my first ufo finish. It's a good way to start the new year.

Great idea, Simone! I have joined Carrie's challenge too. And I see that you joined Terry's quilt along. I did too. Two great minds think alike!

You know I'm looking forward to seeing your finish the Stained Glass quilt!!!

(I need to finish some things too but I'm not counting how many!)

Sharon zei

I'm going to join in as well. I have no idea how many UFOs I have, so I'll need to go count them up and pick three to start on. ;-)

Ulla zei

I'm joining you in spirit but will not take the challenge. I do hope to finish some UFOs anyway. Good luck!

Tracy zei

GREAT start to a creative new year, Simone--focusing on UFO's. I've got a couple of those--yarn and cloth projects. This year I also hope to use up more of my stash...also yarn and cloth related. ;o) Happy Days, my friend ((HUGS))
