While checking out at Fabric Depot the other day, I got to chatting with the cashier about our UFOs (UnFinished Objects). She mentioned that she has a modular shelving unit with eight slots, and each has a UFO: she doesn't allow herself to start a new project unless there's an open slot, so she never has more than eight projects going at a time. It made me wonder exactly how many UFOs I have sitting around my place! I've organized them roughly by how much work needs to be done to finish them, so I can get the easy stuff off my plate first. So here's my list of UnFinished Objects, not including things on my to-do list which I haven't started:
SPARE TIME PROJECTS
I think it's safe to say I have plenty to work on without starting new projects!
The FabDep cashier has a limit of eight UFOs at any one time, but I think I would be better off with six. I figure that quilting is the most arduous category, because I have to set my machine up differently, and it's hard on my hands, so I'll give quilting one slot. Then needlelace, which involves lots of tiny little details and takes a long time to finish, should get one slot. That leaves four open slots for clothing projects, which ordinarily make the bulk of my personal sewing.
Then of course there is commissioned work, which is a separate thing!
Quilting, dressmaking, and history plied with the needle...
