100 UFOS Challenge

Well I moved in the past six months, so there was that fun* thing of figuring out how everything is going to fit and shedding unneeded things. In the figuring I was astounded by the number of UFOs I have. They’ve been hiding in shoe boxes, regular boxes, and some in a plastic bin and I’m afraid that there are near twenty. Off the top of my head one or two have just a few more steps to completion.


I’m going to list them, but take no photos (a certain laziness that gives me more time to do other things, like sew!)

In no specific order:

  1. Denim Butterick 5295
  2. Red and Blue cotton homespun modified Sorbetto dress (meant for the Mad Men Challenge)
  3. Turquoise and white check poly-cotton Butterick 5526

Oh crap. I did not know that it is this bad! But now I know they exist. So I’m planning to try to work through these projects, figuring out what to do with them: whether to finish them, recycle/ upcycle, or toss somehow. I also want to work on the various scraps lying around.

And let’s see if I can go through them before the year ends!

0 down, 61 to go!

(I’m afraid that I missed some UFOs, so I popped the UFO challenge count to 100).
