UFO Challenge 2011

Anyone up for the UFO Challenge for 2011? I'm glad to host it and I think some of you actually got stuff done... unlike me LOL

The object is simple....

1. You choose 10 UFOs and make a list; numbering them 1-10.
2. Each month (January through October) I will post a number chosen at random and that is the UFO you work on and hopefully complete for that month.
3. By the end of the year you will have 10 UFOs completed and off your conscience LOL.

So, if you are interested, please leave a comment and make sure I can link to your blog so that I can put you on the list on my sidebar. You can join at anytime... this is a totally no pressure activity.

And again, thanks to Lost In Space and the picture of the Jupiter 2.

Quilty Hugs!

Quilty Conscience said...

I have to admit that I didn't do nearly as well on my UFO's this year as last, I'm willing to give it a go again though. Thanks for hosting again.

Trudi said...

I'm in! I didn't achieve as much as I would have liked so far this year, so in the spirit of optomism I'll aim to do better for 2011. Thanks for hosting agian Nancy, it's always fun!

Pauline said...

hi mate, think this might motivate me to finish some stuff? who knows..be nice to be in touch a bit more often too...count me in Nancy..love to all
cheers

Darlene said...

Thanks for hosting the challenge. I certainly need it, so count me in!

Gari said...

I think I will join this year. I seem to have increased my UFOs this year rather than decreasing them, as I did in 2009. I am almost dreading making my list. ;-)

Susan said...

I made a list a few weeks ago when I cleaned up my sewing room and I have way more than 12 projects in the works. So I'm in on this!

Liz said...

While I have failed miserably this year at finishing anything on my list, I am game to try again. I will admit, that my best friend getting pregnant put the kink in most of my UFO timelines...it's hard to work on anything else when you're desperately trying to complete gifts for an imminent arrival!

Wendy said...

What a great idea this is. Now to go and start my list.

pajudie said...

Sure, why not...I can just repeat my list from LAST year (with a few new additions). I only got one off of my list :o( Maybe I'll be more organized this year (LOL). Thanks for hosting, Nancy :o)

Tracy said...

Ok...count me in! This will maybe keep me on track!

Quilty Conscience said...

Okay! I've gone through my UFO's and am embarassed by how many I have! I've picked out ten to finish (with high hopes!)this next year and also have decided there are three from the '80ies that I won't spend any time on. You are helping me to get organized. Love it! Toni

Hi Nancy,

I tried this one time & deadlines got in the way of me getting any of my UFO's done.

I'd like to sign up again so that perhaps with my Stashbusters group & your encouragement I might actually get some of my projects done.

There won't be ANY problem coming up with a list. . . .the problem will come in from trying to just pick TEN projects.

Thank you,

Sherry V.

I'm in for another round -- I couldn't miss your little monthly videos of the cards being shuffled! I finished 8 out of 10 this year, but I'm planning to get the 9th one done soon. (I'm mad at the 10th one and it's been banished to the closet for a while!) Thanks for doing this.

Melinda said...

I didn't do very well this year but I want to try again in 2011.

orchidlover said...

Can you add me to the list. I've done fairly well in getting my UFO pile down to a manageable number but any help will be appreciated

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Linda said...

Ok, I got almost all of my list done from last year and this really helped to inspire me...please count me in again.

KatieQ said...

Please sign me up! My good intentions for 2010 didn't quite work out. I only completed 3 UFOs. Maybe if I was forced to work on a specific one it would help.
Thanks for hosting.

SheilaC said...

Me too! I did meet some of my goals, but I need this group to help me again in 2011 :)

Erin O. said...

I'd like to play again!

Kim West said...

I will try again this year. Maybe I will get something accomplished. I did get a few off my 2010 list completed - just not in the months it was supposed to be done according to my list.

Michelle said...

That sounds like fun! Do we have to FINISH the UFO for the month, or just work on it?

Becky said...

I would love a bit of motivation to finish some UFO's in 2011. It will be a great year for sewing!

Kare said...

Oh Nancy - This may be the only way I can do this as my UFO list is a little overwhelming . . . Thanks for doing this!

Joanne said...

I need something to keep me focused and this just might be it - at least I'm hoping it is! Thanks for hosting this!

Miss 376 said...

I'd love to join in, as soon as I've got over the lurgy, I shall make my list. Thanks

Jackie said...

I'll take the plunge - sign me up!

Tennye said...

I want to join this, I am not sure how long it will take me to make the list, but I will get at it as soon as I can.

CJ said...

Oh, I really need this nudge (kick), please count me in. I can even recycle some of my 2010 UFO list. (recycling is good, right!?)

Nancy, Near Philadelphia said...

sign me up, please!

Irene Onderweegs said...

WIP - UFO - TTBD - you could come up with anything: I sure do have it! Would be wise to focus: so count me in!
The number for january would be 3? Didn't get the list yet! Arghhh...
But: this year finished at least three quilts, have a lot more hidden in the closet ;^}
I'll make a list, and let my DH give the numbers for the first one.

jsm said...

Can't wait to be part. I've been working on a few so this will be some added incentive.

Blue Ridge Mountains said...

This sounds like a splendid idea. I am going to sleep on it. I have thirty years of UFO's tucked away. This would be a good time for me to get some of them done. Time flies.

Lynn said...

i hope i can still get on the list. i wuold like to finish many things this year.

Rose Anne said...

I am ready to give this a try. I'll make up my list tomorrow and post it on my blog.

Brenda said...

I am late getting to this. I did it last year and made some progres, will work harder this year.

Carol said...

Please add me to your list.What a wonderful idea. I need motivation! Glad I stumbled in to this:)

Dee J. said...

Ah, what motivation. Add me to the list.
