The UFO


The UFO....no, not that kind. The UnFinished Object kind. I don't know about you but I have some many craft projects stacked up waiting to be finished. I have a jacket that i started sewing several years ago. it's a pretty plum wool. I just need to sew the lining and put it in. Then there is the sweater I am making for my mom. It was supposed to be for last Xmas. Luckily, she is a clam and patient woman. I can say all i have left to do for the sweater is finished knitting the wide collar for it. 100 and some odd stitched in a knit 1, purl 1 ribbing. I also have some socks, fingerless, gloves, and a hat to knit for myself. Only the socks were kind of started.
Then to make things worse. I easily have a half dozen pendants that need to be finished so I can sell them.
Each of these items will make me feel very proud when I finish them and yet....I haven't. Does anyone have tips on how to pick up forgotten craft projects to get them done and finished and no longer haunting me from their storage boxes or bags?
