In addition to tracking my new starts for the year as shown in yesterday’s post, I also track progress on my UFOs. Anything not finished by Jan 1 rolls over from the New Start list to the UFO list and the goal is to see that number go down each year although I haven’t managed that in recent years. Once the Patriotic Rail Fence is bound, I will have completed 18 UFOs this year… my goal is finishing a minimum of 12 each year.
The number of UFOs will go down next year — not as far as I’d like but at least most of the UFOs continue to be finished tops. I don’t do well with UFOs in pieces and you can see my oldest UFO from 2009 still isn’t a finished top!
EDIT: Another reason I like my lists, is that I learn things about how I work by looking at them. I just realized other than the one kitted project that hasn’t been started, the other three UFOs that aren’t finished tops are all hand pieced projects … that tells me that maybe I shouldn’t start any more piecing projects by hand because however much I like the idea of doing them, they don’t seem to get finished up.
