End of January Eve Already?

Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
Marilyn Monroe

Wow can you believe that it is almost the end of January today? For my second day in blogland I decided I would share what I am up to.

Last summer my DH decided that I needed a place for all of my "stuff" after all he has a huge barn full of his tractors and cars.  So the old "sick room" which is on the main level of the house was emptied and painted, and my stuff was moved in.  Oh I am taking forever to get to the point.....Anyway when moving my "stuff" into my room I started counting my UFOs.  I had tons, in fact I don't remember having a finish of anything forever yet I was adding fabric to my stash.  I decided at that time that I needed to finish up my UFOs and while I can start a new project or two for holidays, gifts, etc.  I must complete a quilt before I start more.  To help me along Carrie P over at A Passion for Applique has a nothing but UFO party going on.  

Um yeah when I figure out how to do the linky gadgety thing it will be here.

Hi there! I've got a lot of UFOs, too, and even more kits and sets of fabric that I haven't even touched yet. Cracking down on that! Good luck with your list. These are some nice quilts you've finished so far!

Thanks Carrie I did the one last month but my blog was through My Quilt Place. I decided to expand my horizons and do a new blog. You have inspired me to get some things done.
