    OK - I found what I had started on this quilt and pressed all the pieces. I literally got so frustrated I just put everything in a box and put it away - took me a little while to find it. Now that I look at it again, I'm not sure what frustrated me so much! Maybe when I get into sewing it again it will come back to me, but it doesn't seem so overwhelming now as when I put it away. Everything is laid out on the table ready to go - hopefully I'll have a little time this evening to work on it. Promised the boys lasagna for supper and I have a couple of loads of laundry to finish first.

      Just try to keep at it. The inspiration and determination to finish it will come.

      Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

      Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

        I find that when I get frustrated it is best I walk away for a couple of days. When I return my head is clear and things work better for me.

          Thanks for posting your list and joining the group this year. I see you have a NCW on your list. That is something that I would like to make this year, too. I am looking forward to seeing your projects.

            Finished is Better Than Perfect

            About this Group

            Do you have some UFOs (UnFinished Objects) that you want to finish? Are you having a hard time choosing what to finish next, or are you just not feeling motivated? Do you have some specific goals you want to complete in 2018? This group is for you! We have a fun way to get those projects done in 2018.

            Here is how it works.

            First, you create a list, numbered from 1 - 12, of 1) things you want to finish; 2) OR projects you want to do; 3) OR a combination of 1 and 2. Then, you post your list to this group. (You can edit and change your list at any time.)

            Every month, this group will publish a random number between 1 - 12. We will each work on that number from our list. If you prefer to do your list in a particular order, you can certainly do it that way as well. When you have finished your project, please post a picture here as well.

            We’re here to support each other. It’s amazing how knowing what project to tackle helps to motivate us to finish what we start.
