Hi All,

As it’s the beginning of the month, and the days are apparently getting longer from here on in, here’s a competition to hopefully encourage you all to get on with some UFO busting!

Time to dig up all those long-forgotten projects which are languishing sadly in corners and complete them. If they have been abandoned because you are tired of looking at them, think in terms of gifting them to someone who will see them with fresh eyes (that’s always my incentive on projects I’ve managed to cast aside in favour of a shiny new one).

There will be two prizes for this competition! One will go to the person who completes the most amount of projects, and the other will go to the person who completes the most complicated – perhaps a full size quilt or similar. Simply take before and after photo’s and post them up by the 28th and the winners will be announced!

Good luck everyone and happy Finishing!

Emma x

Good idea Emma.

My New Year's Resolution is to try and zap a UFO a month. January's is completed. It was started sometime before 2009, but I don't think I have a before photo.

February's is a Birthday Club 2011 set of blocks.

Here are my Birthday Club 2011 blocks. The neutral background ones have been joined into a top, though not in this layout. Now need to sandwich and quilt.

Well, you certainly have your work cut out Rosemary. They're such a varied mix of projects, I bet you'll enjoy revisiting them!

Margaret, I love your quilt! It's so bright and cheerful. Will you keep it for yourself?
