This month"s Question is what makes you pick up a long abandoned UFO instead of starting a new project?
Actually looking at the number of new starts I have had this year I don't think I do. However, I do look at my WIP (UFOs if you prefer) list at the begging of the year and make a plan about which ones I want to finish and what projects from my stash I want to start. Then I try not to buy new projects but this year I have had started two long term projects that create a lot of new starts. One is to make Christmas ornaments for my MIL, children and grandchildren each year and the other is to make a bag tag for each state my husband plays golf in at the rate of two per month. By year end this will result in 6 ornaments and 14 bag tags which will all be started and finished this year as well as trying complete 8 of the WIPs I started the year with. So far I have finished 2 of the ornaments, 3 bag tags and 3 of the WIPs. I better stitch faster.
