New FO Jan 2012



NewFO2012

I LOVE this idea.  Stop over at Cat patches to see what this is all about  Here's a brief intro  from Cat Patches today:

"This being the last day of January, it's time to show off your NewFO projects.  Remember, you don't have to finish your NewFO's this month, this year, or EVER, if you're feeling so bold.  The idea with the NewFO Challenge is to have fun and to start something new.  And honestly, who wrote the rule that every project has to be completed, no matter how ugly, boring, challenging, frightening, tedious, or distasteful?  So shake off those old sewing projects that bind and be audacious!"

I don't have a  lot of UFOs so I don't get to participate in all the UFO challenges.  But I do LOVE to start a new project.  Sometime it will take me a while to finish, sometimes they get done very quickly.  But this is a great way to track what's been done a monthly basis.  I think I may actually combine this with my stash report and do that on a monthly basis as well. 

Here's the Jan new projects started (not necessarily finished).  Jan and Feb are generally my most productive months.  I think I get like 50% of my sewing for the entire year completed in Dec - Feb :)
