UFO Busting #86

It's like I can almost hear the sleigh bells!  The Christmas holiday is right around the corner but for today we are talking UFO busting, project distractions, project finishes and how are we going into the new year.  It's going to be 2020 and I think we need clear vision (20/20).  I myself have been working on what my goals will be for the upcoming year.  I will be joining a few linky parties and other bloggers in their keep me on track efforts.  First up is Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl and her 2020 Planning Party.

You have until Dec 31st to link up a post about your next year goals.  If you do, there are prizes to be had!  But forget that fact, it's a great way to start the year off and keep yourself on track so those piles of UFOs possibly do not get any bigger.

Next I'll be joining Gail at Quilting Gail and her PhD in 2020.  Wanna whittle down that pile of UFOs while making sure to not let it get any bigger?  Gail's year long party will help you do just that.

The rules are pretty simple.  Pick 12 UFO's to work on and attempt to finish everything you start in 2020.  Easy peasy right?  If you are interested in joining in, pop over to Quilting Gail and check it out.

To keep on track with my yearly goals, it might be a good idea to keep the months in check.  That's where Patty at Elm Street Quilts steps in with her OMG (one monthly goal) party. 

Again the party is pretty simple, at the beginning of the month, link up a post about what your one goal for the month will be.  Complete (or maybe don't) your goal.  Link up a post at the end of the month to celebrate your accomplishment.  There is a random drawing at the end of the month for those that link up.  What a great way to get through that PhD list and finish your new projects!  I love a prize carrot dangled in front of my face!

And if you need a little bit of help getting through that one month goal, there is a weekly linky that is pretty much brand spanking new to get us looking at what we need to get done for the week.  Enter Roseanne and Sue over at Home Sewn By Us and their To-Do Tuesday linky party.

The rules are again pretty simple.  Link up a post on Tuesday that recaps how you did with your goals from the previous week.  Were you able to check that item off your list or is it still hanging out there waiting for your attention.  Then (in the same post) let us know what you plan to work on for the current week.  Repeat the next Tuesday.  Although the party is pretty new (19 so far) Roseanne and Sue have been posting their to do lists for 139 weeks!  Let me tell you, those two know how to stay on track.  So let's join in with them and completely crush 2020!!

I will be posting next week before ol' Chris Kringle pays a visit to list my yearly goals and what I hope to accomplish.  Now in the party that's like bust UFO's or ignore them I don't care, let's see what you were up to last week. 

First up we have Yvonne over at Sew Yummy and her Funky Churn Dash finish.

I just love how those bright colors pop against the neutral gray background!  This quilt is so much fun!  Make sure you pop over and congratulate Yvonne on this super fun finish.

Next up we have Maggie over at Making A Lather who had some social sewing going on while working on her scrap rainbow challenge quilt.

Maggie has a sewing group that meets and they work on projects and I'm guessing have sewww much fun while doing it.  Make sure you pop over to check out everything they worked on.  I'm guessing the thread was flying!

Now it's your turn, link up below and tell us what you've been up to last week...and remember Santa is watching, or possible your own version of Uno, Elf on the Shelf.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Speaking of social sewing.  I'm super excited because today as you read this, I have made a new quilty friend and she is coming over to the house for a sew date!  I can't wait to tell you about all the fun we had.  I also think she's going to make a great in person quilting accountability partner.

Merry Christmas, Tish! Thanks for hosting this linky this past year -- I haven't always had a finish, but it has helped me move at least a few of my UFOs to finishes! Here's to a more productive 2020! I'm going to post my little tree today (Hope that's okay).

Delightful post, Tish. I had to go visit both your featured blogs because I loved their work. Thank you for sharing. Have fun with your new Quilty friend. Merry Christmas!

Hi Tish! Aren't you just the sweetest thing, giving us a shout out?!! Thank you so much. I really do love all those accountability tools you've listed for the week, month (thank heavens for Patty!), and even yearly (thank you, Yvonne). I started on a 2020 list but it's nowhere near complete yet. Geez, that's a cute churn dash quilt top, and Maggie's crayons are adorable. Merry Christmas to you and your family, my friend. I think 2020 is going to BE your year. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

I'm in on the PhD too! I do have a lot to do and try to do OMG so I think this should work too. Maybe we'll get a lot of the UFOs gone!!! I am writing my goals too, but most will happen after the to see family then return to the quiet of an island in Maine to recuperate. Merry Christmas to you and see you around the hood.

I love both of your featured picks! Sounds like there is some major UFO busting planned for the new year!

Happy Holidays!
