Let's S.E.W. Link Up: Let's Check Off Those WIPs/UFOs

Let's S.E.W. Link Up: Let's Check Off Those WIPs/UFOs

So I wanted to check in with all my amazing followers to see if you would like to start a Let's Sew Link Up each month to 1: Leave a comment here on my blog, sharing a WIP/UFO at the end of this month (May) that you want to finish and 2: Link up a finish with the Let's S.E.W. (fingers crossed) at the end of the next month (June) and share your next WIP and 3: Repeat!! 

This would be a personal challenge, to put out there....saying what you want to accomplish in that month, hopefully encouraging you to accomplish it, so you can show it off at the end of the month! I know I work better when I challenge myself with goals....but, no pressure at all. The link ups don't combine...so no-one but you will know it you complete your task on time, but I figure any progress is worth celebrating at the end of the month....how about you?

I'll post the Let's S.E.W. Link up the last week of each month (staying live for 3 weeks) for you to share your finishes with all of us! You will find a Let's S.E.W. page in the drop down menu on my new blog, making it easy to find each months posts!!

And if you didn't share a WIP or you don't want to accept the challenge...no worries just share something! That's what it's all about...Sharing, Encouraging so we all Win in the end!!

Here are 9 of the 10 (one is missing from the shot) tops still to quit! Plus on on the long arm and 2 that I am hand stitching the bindings on!! So that means I have finished 10/23 so far!! I am so happy with that!

I'll start....Here is my guilty quilty confession....I get bored! Working on one project at a time will never be an option for me...I get so bored, especially on longer projects, but saying that, my unfinished project piles, or WIPs and lets be honest UFO piles, have gotten way out of control. So I have declared this to be my "Year of the Finish! Not allowing myself any new projects (ha)...                ok, mostly.....lol, till the WIPs are completed! I do have some obligations that will need to be started and finished, no matter where my list is at before the end of the year...but for the most part finishing is my ultimate goal....and so far so good! 

So who's with me? Who dares to look through their piles and take stock of what needs to be finished? I have chosen to list all my unfinished quilt tops as WIPs, but am not adding in my UFOs, which I deem to be blocks and started projects that have not been assembled. Full disclosure for your eyes only, no judgement here, right? I started with 23 unfinished quilt tops this year...yikes and I have 14 UFOs, ridiculous I know....

I store my UFOs in clear plastic Scrapbooking storage units! They work great, for storage, but not at modivating me to finish...lol. (Some just have fabric in them if you are counting....lol)

But it's the truth....

Also, some of you may remember the Sew Along I had mentioned after the One Block Wonders finished, I wanted to share this year on my blog...well it's being put on the back burner....because I just can't think straight and my sewing mojo has been seriously affected by the build up of projects that are calling out to me to be finished.....

But don't worry I will keep working on the Original pattern and hopefully we can start that sew along in January of 2018...

So see you back here June 24 th for the first Let's S.E.W. link up! 

Can't wait to hear what you are up to in your sewing spaces!!

Have a great week everyone!
