UFO’s – #APQResolution – 2017 & 2018

All in all it was a good year.  I completed 9 of 13 projects.  A few were carry overs from last year and a few will be carried into next year.  There were a couple of projects that got done that weren’t on the list, and a little later in the month I’ll do a reprise of 2017 finishes.  It was a year in which we decided to put our house on the market – it had been in the back of our minds  – but it became real.  Honestly, I didn’t sew much for 3 months.  Things are in a better place, so 2018 should be good!

I am pleased to keep doing this as it really helps keep me focused. I do move around projects as the year goes on so they finish when I like.  A few would not have been done, had they not been on the list.  I am making headway on the projects I have and would like to speed up to 2 a month, but much depends on a secret commitment – if it happens I don’t think I will be doing 2 a month.   

I am excited to begin this year and think that I will start where I left off, finishing the Petal Play Loon…

Best wishes for a terrific 2018!

      Thanks, Paige. I sure do hope it is too, and since we aren't moving it should be much better!

    You did a great 2017, 9 out of 13 is quite good considering you were moving. Looks like you're going to have a great 2018.

    It's awesome you got 9 completed last year; it sounds like it's a good tool for you to use and I look forward to seeing more finishes for you in 2018! 🙂

      Yes, that is a great accomplishment! I think it will be a more productive year and there are a few that I don't think made it onto official lists, but I think it is time to move forward!
