1& 2 are at Carries to be quilted. Hopefully they will be back by the time we  return from our trip to Cabo  Sept. 6-13th.  Then they will need to be bound and labelled.  #3 needs some hand embroidery, then quilting and binding.  It is a small project.  I will take it to Cabo and hopefully finish the embroidery.  #4 is partly done as the blocks I won are made.  Have to choose a setting and then do all the rest.  #5 the owls are partly made.  They are good-size and a child's top should sew up quickly, not as quick as Patty does hem but shouldn't be too bad.

it will be a challenge but not too bad(I hope)

Sure, start something new and add it to the list :D

I cannot imagine having no UFOs

Yup I think you got it right, Dee does not have any UFO'S  so she will need to create something to join this.

For me I seem to have a very steady stream of customer quilts so I will try to get some UFO'S to the finishline but don't want any pressure right now. I have done 3 very old UFO'S so far and the wedding quilt is almost done as well so that will be 4. I have not started any new projects so have made progress.

Ha!  I keep finding orphans that people give me, now that county fair is over, I have to get going doing orphans!!

well, not exactly.  I have a 7 I spy tops hanging in the closet but since I just quilted 8 last month and 4 of those are still stacked up waiting to go somewhere, I don't really don't want to quilt any more right now as they take more space quilted.  And I have a EPP hand work project that I'm not sure how or even if I even want to finish it.  I guess I think of UFO's as things that have been sitting around for a  long time that make me feel guilty.  And I really don't have any of those right now - the really old ones I forced myself to finish last year.  I guess I feel "caught up" right now.

Ok I got my two projects:

Miniature 30's Pansy quilt: quilt, bind, label and hanging sleeve. Well aged UFO begun 1998 or 1999. I got stuck on how to quilt it. Loaded on the 14 foot longarm table and marked with a tiny baptist fan. Handquilting this would be a nightmare with all the tiny seams 

2. Honey bee block pillow. Begun around 1984 or 1985 and my second quilt project and oldest UFO!!! Need to finish handquilting and sew into pillow cover. Label. This one is way overdue and will be displayed on the bed.
