We have been cleaning the room upstairs so we can have the carpet which we removed laid up there and, low & behold!!  I found a whole container of UFOs not previously listed!!!!
I have started four fall placemats -- don't know when -- but I do like them a lot.  One is pieced and ready to quilt.  Now only 3 more to go.  Easy-peasy, right????

And I have this snowman through the year quilt which is ready to sew all the rows together, decide whether or not it needs a border, and quilt it. 

The two bottom rows are sewn together.  Just need to sew the top two to them.
And I found this one that my mom had started hand piecing. 
I think I will just square it off and quilt it in her memory.
And then two projects:  One for a carnation topper shown above.  And one for a manly throw.

And one more that needs some machine stitching around the appliques and then ready to quilt:

And one that I started quilting years ago -- I hope I have improved since starting this one!! --

I really want to take out what I've quilted and start over.  It is so wrinkled.  I don't think I'll ever be able to get the wrinkles out!! 
So add 6  more to my list!!  All in good time, right????


  1. Oh, wow! LOL I had the same thing happen a couple of months ago when I found some UFOs from ages ago that I didn't even remember. One quilt even sandwiched and everything! Must've been in that closet for at least 15 years. . .

    The Poor Forgotten Orphans you found (that's what I called mine) look really neat, and I'm just LOVING the quilt you took the photos on. :D

  2. P.S. Glad I'm not the only one with a monster UFO list. You're in good company. ;D The whole reason I started my blog was to motivate myself to work through those as quickly as I can around my family's needs and my studies (back in college for a history masters).

  3. I love all your lost projects, especially the Snowmen. With 31 we might be equal.
