Quilters have UFOs and WIPs. It is part of our culture. Start the project, get well into it with the project spread over half your house, then abandon it for a new project. UFOs are un-finished objects! WIPs are a little more gentler, they are works in progress!
I have UFOs, many UFOs. Every now and then I do finish something so it is not like I totally abandon a project. I started it because it was something I wanted to make, therefore, it is something I do want to finish, right? Right, all will get finished someday. Except for the failed projects, they get re-cycled into another project. But, still these unfinished projects bug me. They call out to me, and sometimes they fuss at me for not completing one project at a time.
But I found out at the quilt festival that Martha Washington (yes, George's spouse) had unfinished quilts. Or at least one anyway. I attended a lecture luncheon with a well known quilt teacher, designer, publisher, etc. The lecture was titled "Why We Quilt". It was light hearted and fun, but the best part was when she showed a picture of a quilt that Martha had pieced but never quilted. The room roared when the speaker pointed out that even back then there were UFOs! Now I feel better about my bad habit!
