Shelly has a challenge going on: The 2010 Final Countdown.
I am up for a challenge.
Find your oldest UFO and do something about it
2010 has been a very good year for me as far as finishing UFO’s goes. As a result, my oldest UFO is a jewel box quilt I started two years ago. I actually blogged about it a while back.
So, I got the quilt out and looked it over (AGAIN!) and have officially placed it in my Project Staging Area. Regardless of what challenge Shelly throws at us tomorrow, I am going to make A LIST. An OFFICIAL LIST. A 2011 PROJECT LIST. And, this quilt will be on it.
Clear off a flat surface in your sewing area
Now, if I were a really good woman, I would attack this area
The Project Staging Area mentioned above, but that is tomorrow’s job (plus whatever Shelly gives us).
So, instead I worked on this pile (which has flat elements)
Yes, it is. The dreaded Ironing and Mending pile.
It now looks like this
Ironing and mending are mundane sewing tasks, but they satisfy the objective which was to “start the new year off with a fresh clean place to work.” Getting mending and ironing out of the way gives me a fresh place to work, even if only in my mind.
Thanks for the challenge, Shelly. I look forward to tomorrow.
