Resolution

36 days to go - and a (maybe quixotic, doubtless
backbreaking) resolution: I´m going to finish
all UFOs, WIPs and half forgotten projects before
the end of the year...













Shown here: just the tip of the iceberg...
After a lot of trying and exploring ,
spending considerable time on spur-of-the-moment
projects (and deeming myself still a stitching novice),
next year I plan to approach things with some more
purpose...













Already ticked off: long-term UFO quilted
pillowcase, named (for reasons long forgotten)
State of Mind, and...













Strange growth, the second...

























"The truth will set you free. But first, it
will piss you off."

(Gloria Steinem, born Nov. 25, 1935)

That quote is perfect for UFO's too :} Brave woman to set such a goal--mine are slowly disappearing by being cannabalized for other things!

Now fly away, fly away,
Fly away all!

I don't know why that came to mind - it was something about the Steinem quote and your resolve.

A worthy goal...It would take me a year to finish everything I'm working on!

I've been pissed off at least once or twice ... LOL... Not sure if I'm free yet.... =-)

Puuh, now all the world knows about it... +, no big surprise, the first obstacles + fatigue fits show their ugly faces... but I´m determined (not too much, though, for nothing would happen if I don´t succeed, nothing at all... okay, I might be a trifle pissed off :)

Admiral resolution, hope you get somewhere near your goal, it's quite a task you have set yourself. All the pieces look absolutely wonderful. It makes me wish I were more focused!

Your UFOs are lovely and offer good inspiration to finish them. My UFOs are usually things that turned out to be bad ideas and are better left alone!

oh what a beautiful and familiar scene. i often hold a tea ceremony so they can all get together and give each other, and me... new purpose.

ger hat gesagt…

Thank you all... - the shown UFOs I have to admit are those unlikely to be bad-idea-ones (the deeper down in the basket, the worse it gets...) going to adopt the tea ceremony... more focus is what I try to gain (fine to be a butterfly, but confusion tends to clot the wings...)
