An accounting of sorts...

I have finished 12 projects so far this year! Although I finished these three mug rugs (on 8/31/16), I'm only going to count them as one project since they were all squirreled away together in the UFO pile. I'm giving myself a huge pat on the back for getting this much done already this year.

These two will be in the shop soon...

 And, this one I'm giving to a friend!

Of course, my UFO list is still quite long and, for sure, will carry over into 2017 and possibly 2018, but that doesn't matter to me because I'm making progress. As the saying goes, I "can see light at the end of the tunnel". Admittedly, it's a very long tunnel!! :)

Here's the accounting:

Started the year with UFO projects: 38
Found YTD:  +13 more
Started YTD:  +1 new
Gave away YTD: -3
Trashed YTD: -3
Sold YTD: -2
Finished YTD: -12 (I don't have a specific yearly goal other than to finish as many as possible)

Remaining total YTD = 32 as of today!! By doing the math, you realize that I was up to 51 UFOs at one time, don't you? Who knows how many more I will find along the way. Apparently, I've hidden them away all over the house. :)

Linking up with Colorways by Vicki!

Take care,

Luscious is the only word I can use to describe these place mats Terri - I absolutely love them! So very cheerful and wonderful to sit and have a cuppa and home baked biscuit on one of these.

These are so bright and delightful, you've inspired me, I think I'll just make them a little bigger and make some colourful pot holders.
