So I was thinking.....here is where Dear Hubby rolls his eyes and mutters something about hurting my brain too much.....what does UFO really mean? For most of us crafters and quilters, it means UnFinished Object. Or to some it is WIPs (Works In Progress) and some even use PIGS (Projects In Grocery Sacks).
But isn't just about everything covered under UFO's.....including patterns, books, a magazine picture, random ideas rolling in the muddy mess of my brain? When I look at a picture magazine and say to myself (cause nobody else in my house listens to my ramblings). "Boy, I'd like to make that soon", doesn't it then become a UFO? It's unfinished, it's an object that I want. But it hasn't been started yet. Something started is a WIP.
I'm going somewhere with this....hang in there.... So what the heck was I thinking the other day when I chose a WIP AND a project that I hadn't even started yet for Kelly's challenge? I have at least 15 WIPs already started. Why didn't I just pick one of those to FINISH instead of starting something new?
Well, choose them I did so shut up, Cathi, and move on.
I finished cutting out the 20 something blocks for the Hidden Stars quilt and I cut out all the pieces for the Cheri Christmas quilt.
But so I don't fool myself again into thinking a UFO is the same as a WIP, I am erasing UFO from my vocabulary....and from my sidebar. From now on, they are all Works In Progress. And if they aren't, they are just piles of fabric and stacks of papers waiting.
