My UFO Abduction

This is my UFO face.  Grumpy, huffy with a twitch in one eye. 

UFO’s, better known as Unfinished Objects, mess with my brain.  They are Elf on a Shelf for quilters, silently watching and judging us.  

I have UFO’s missing binding, not quilted, half quilted, in plastic tubs and bags partially cut up and randomly shoved into drawers, closets, cubby holes and sometimes just out in the open.   

To help finish something in 2021, I’m joining Quilting Gail and her PHD program, Projects Half Done.  Made a list and Kanban.  Wish me luck.
