How many UFOs is too Many?
I like to think I don't have any UFOs, just lots of WIPs (works in progress). I like having something in each of the different stages of completion so that I can work on what I am in the mood for; appliqué or hand quilting in front of the TV, serious chain piecing if I have time in front of the machine.... you get the idea. But I have trouble justifying so many things left undone. Starting something new is always more fun than finishing. I have finished the blocks for three quilts that sit as blocks in baggies! That may not seem like a lot to some of you, but I only finished 8 quilts all of last year! So, in order to satisfy my need for variety, without becoming overwhelmed with guilt about projects not finished, I'm going to try to have only one quilt in each stage at a time.
Now I just have to assess my WIPs list and see where I stand.
