3" Nine Patches!?!?!?!?! And, More!
Remember my 3" nine patches? Here's one of the blocks with the cutie in the center. I finished the blocks on Friday and they sit waiting. It should be finished but I need to lay them out on the floor and I've been too lazy to do it. Yes, I need a design wall so that I don't have to crawl all over the floor! Note to self - figure out where to put a design wall.
What's a UFO???? Thanks so much for posting your opinions and definitions. This question came up because last week my DH was with me at one of our local quilt stores and the owner was telling one her employees about me and how much I sew. They asked me how many UFOs I had and I said, "none". My DH started laughing and I realized that his definition and mine were not the same. A UFO to me is a project that's been started but has been set aside. The fabric has been cut and I've started sewing. I try very hard not to do that - yes, I prefer to work on one project at a time and it makes me crazy when I hop from project to project. Now, I have a ton of PIGS (projects in grocery sacks, as Patti calls them) but I don't think of those as UFOs. Speaking of Patti - she provided "food for thought" - I have a large (read very large) pile of quilt tops and never thought of those as UFOs. Now, I have to decide whether or not those are UFOs in my mind or just quilt tops. LOL Nancy says they are just quilt tops. HMMMM - something to ponder. I'm truly a "processor" so I'm sure that I will always have a lot of quilt tops waiting to be quilted so I'm not sure I want to call them UFOs - LOL. This is definitely something to ponder! :-) Again, thank you for sharing your opinions and definitions.
GRRRRRRRRRRRRR - need to vent!!!! I realized yesterday that I'm too addicted to this computer. Way to addicted. Why? Our cable company was experiencing an outage and I couldn't do anything on the computer until last night. My world was tilted on its axis - crazy I know! LOL My DH looked at me later in the evening and said "we're back up" and I felt such a sense of relief when I was able to log on. I really need a life!
