UFO Sunday - Celebrate Your Progress

It's UFO Sunday and time to celebrate our progress! How many quilts have you finished since we started? Here's my list:

I also have two major UFOs being finished up right now, but they are not quilts, but a book and DVD! Yes, UFOs come in all shapes and sizes and I have no lack of business UFOs I'm working through this year on top of many quilt projects.

I will say it feels wonderful to work through and finish ANY project, no matter how bogged down and difficult. It's definitely making me learn and live the KISS principle because the more complicated something is, the more difficult it will be to finish.

So remember no matter how many UFOs you have left to finish, it's good to stop and look back at what has been accomplished and pat yourself on the back for getting through the tough projects.

So how am I celebrating today? I'm treating myself to a WIP rather than a UFO - Duchess Reigns:

She's marked (finally) and I'm working on the first layer of trapunto on the surface. It's so nice to be cuddled up with her on the machine, slowly stitching out beautiful feathers.

So what are you working on today? What can you celebrate finishing since we got started blasting through our UFOs in September?

Instead of looking at all that's left to finish, make sure to take a day to take stock of all that you have accomplished. It may just give you a boost to keep on working through many more UFOs before the year is out.

Now let's link up and see how you've Kept it Stupidly Simple this week!

Simple rules for UFO Sunday link up:

1. Post about a UFO you've been working on this week. A UFO is any project that you started and shelved at some point in the process. Projects from any craft (not just quilting) are welcome!

2. Make sure to share a link back to this UFO Sunday post or grab a button below to share.

3. Comment on at least 2 other linked up blogs. Help your fellow quilters work through a tricky part of their UFO by sharing your opinion and advice!

  1. I did finish my pinwheel quilt finally, so yay!

    I also finished a purse for my BFF, but I had to hurry the last bits and leave to go see her, so no post. :-/ I did take a couple pics but haven;t uploaded them yet.

  2. Congratulations on all of your finishes!! Glald to see you getting going on your goddess quilt!

  3. Happy Dance on your FO's, great progress and doesn't it feel good? I'm moving very slowly due to other stuff happening, but hoping to get pushing again on the Compass.

  4. Gracias Leah. Terminé de unir los bloques que corrian por casa un poco desorientados.
