Didn't get much sewing done this weekend. I spent most of the weekend taking down Christmas decorations and trying to organize my basement. I did manage to take some time yesterday to enjoy the crazy weather we are having here in Kansas. High 60's in January is unheard of, but very nice. I wouldn't complain if the rest of the winter was a nice, but I know that won't be the case. Miss Grace and I went with friends to the barn to visit their horses. A good time was had by all.
Onto my Monday topic... I mentioned the other day that I picked up a copy of Quilter's Home because of an article on the cover that caught my eye. When to Declare a UFO DOA. You can really declare a project dead and not finish it??? What a novel concept, why didn't I think of it sooner????
According to the article, here are some UFO Guidelines to think about:
- Lose it -
- Rethink it - Rethink your project - could it be a table runner instead of a lap quilt? Could it be a wall hanging instead of a baby quilt?
- Forget it - If you can't rethink or "repurpose" the project, then maybe you should just forget it. It's OK to move on and not finish the project.
- Chop it - Use what has been completed to practice a technique that you've always wanted to try or need practice with.
- Scrap it - Turn your project into a scrap quilt. Take the pieces that are completed and make something that looks completely different in effort to finish the project.
