Dee, my oldest has gone back to school also and he agrees!  He has observations to do...but with Covid most places either are not in person, or will not allow extra persons in.

so, they watch hours of videos, along with your online in person classes, Ali g with Hours online doing homework stuff!  Many days he comes out of his room all dazed! And crazy .

Patti,    Will plan to make even more kits up and bring them to retreat!  My ladies loved tieing the alphabet tops you made.

I am trying to make a dent on my UFO tops though. I am trying to pull out tops and get backs made and quilt them.

Yup .. before I was hit with the heritage scrapbooking urge, I was doing 2/3rds of that.   I was concentrating on finishing up UFOs, matching them with backings and bindings.   But then, I parted ways with you .... I have hung all those pairing on hangers and they are in a closet, waiting to be quilted.  I can piece and make tops easily and quickly (if I don't decide on something intricate) but the quilting is another story.

Besides, I know that my girls can always "quilt by check" if they really want them done but if they find boxes of UFOs, they won't have a clue what to do! My goal is to get everything quilted, eventually, but initially I want to complete the UFOs.

**After** the scrapbooks!  :-)

Jo the way I decide what quilt to do is I go thru them and pull out the one I am most excited about finishing, likely because I can envision a plan on what to do. Sometimes I pull out an old one and other times it is a recent finished top. I have to have inspiration or I don't want to work on it. I know some will never be completed by me and that is ok too.

Great!  And I found another box of orphan blocks--sigh--am putting together some scrappy tops now!!

Shelley i really don't have that many UFOs left. Some years back I made a big push to make up all my block swaps into tops. I don't swap blocks any more so I usually am able to work on new projects and complete them. I have a few things not finished but am making slow progress on them.

I share your sigh!  I just spent a day sorting others yarn, mess of fabrics, and filling the trash.  I could have been doing something more fun.

Exactly what I have been doing.  All my UFOs are completed tops that can be easily quilted.  I don't have any ufo partial projects--only what I'm currently working on.  One of these days I'll get to quilting on them....

DD had me do the Ancestry DNA and I have been having so much fun working on my ancestors' history,  It can really suck several hours out of the day.

I may have stolen Teresa's idea as I have a clear glass table lamp almost full of wooden spools of thread. Cris in MT

Very nice Chris!  I thought it was such a clever idea, plus it's useful.  :)
