How many UFOs does a girl need?

As I have been tidying and sorting my sewing room I have taken photos of (some of) my UFOs, with a view to finishing as many as I can for this year's Sew Its Finished.

So far I have reached 18 - but that's not all.  I have all the photos in the UFOs 2013 page, and will add to it as I keep photographing.  It is a worry when you think how many new projects will be started throughout the year, but at least I will see the progress.

Now I am trying to decide which of them I should start with.  I think it will be the cot quilt, so it can be used while Vicki is still using her cot.  I have put the borders on it now, so am up to sandwiching and binding it. 
Following that will be quilting the Batman quilt for Kai.  (No pic yet, but the top and a pieced backing are made.)

Following that - well there is plenty of choice.

Sammy is always keen to help out Mum or Dad with the yard work on their acreage property.  So we gave him a new wheelbarrow to replace the very tiny plastic one he had been using.  Now he can take a bigger load each time.  Here he is helping to move the bark mulch.

Oh dear, I think most of us can relate to the UFO's hidden away in containers and cupboards. My promise to myself last year was to quilt some of the tops I have completed. I think I got one done. Not game to photograph them as they are too numerous to mention. Hope you get lots of your UFO's done. Show and Tell at the next blog meet? Hugs....

I don't want to think about UFO's, lol. That's going to be a lovely quilt! Sammy looks so cute with his wheelbarrow, what a great kid!

I try not to think about UFO's even going so far as to call them PHD's :)
You have made a great start to the year.

The cot quilt is very pretty, Marilyn. My UFO'S are too embarrassing to mention in public! Quietly trying to work out which one to finish first. Will have to prioritise. Good luck to you.
