UFO or PFP?

The former being Unfinished Object and the latter being Partly Finished Project. I think I like PFP - it's a little more positive, more like a WIP (Work in Progress) and less like a FTF (Failure to Finish).

Whatever you choose to label it, I have 13 of them! Now, I know I'm not alone on this, and probably like me you avoid the fact that you have so many projects on the go at one time. It's your little secret, am I right?

As finances are a bit tight at the moment and I can't indulge in new materials I'm finding it a perfect time to finish off a few of those projects that had just been "put aside later" AKA "I've lost motivation and can't be bothered".

Here are a few things I'm working on:


Baby gowns and blankets for the Bonnie Babes Foundation. Some finished, many unfinished!




A cute waldorf softie doll (needs hair)



Embroidering vintage pieces (pure joy!)




Baby Mary Janes (need snaps).

So, how about you share your little secret? How many PFP's do you currently have?

Too scary to contemplate. I did recently make a list and it is NOT PRETTY. I have itemised the list with a few projects to finish each month. Got my May projects done ahead of time but June is looking dangerous LOL. Next on the unfinished list is my son's quilt.

Never fear, you are not alone!! I am too scared to even count them. This week I did focus on finishing a couple...and I did get two finished (another 105054042 to go). Whoo Hooo.

Good luck with yours.

Definitly not alone. I have a box under the bed and it is full of UFO's - really should pull in out and do something about finishing them.
