Hey all….I’ve worked and gotten myself into a bit of a rut. I’m sure some of you can relate. I’ve been regularly working on UFOs for over a year now. I’ve done good and completed lots. I do have more to do but not an amount that is bothering me. What is bothering me is the new projects I’ve bought and not started. What else that is bothering me is that there are things in the house I want to do….I have this mirror in the bathroom that is calling to me.
I bought the mirror at the thrift store when we were remodeling. We were out of money and there was none left for a fancy mirror for the bathroom. I ended up at the thrift store and this vintage mirror was there. It was the wrong color…but the right price- $2… and an okay style so I bought it. Our intention was that we would replace it as soon as the money thing figured itself out…but we haven’t replaced it. About two months ago when we were at Lowe’s I looked for what I thought would be my idea mirror. Then after looking I realized I already had my perfect mirror….it was just the wrong color. I need it to be white. So my plan was to paint it…..but, things get in my way…things like needing to work on a UFO so that I have something to post for the UFO linky party on Wednesdays. It looks terrible if I am the hostess but not participating in my own challenge.
I was lamenting about this to Hubby and he laughed. He told me well change your challenge and don’t do a UFO. I said, “Well some people still want to work on their UFOs”. That’s when we figured out a way to do it all. Keep reading and I’ll share the plan….I’m changing the UFO linky to a “Whatever (you want to share) Wednesday” linky party. The best part about it is that you can work on ANYTHING and EVERYTHING you like and this is your chance to show it off. If you are a crocheter…show off your latest project. If your daughter just won the spelling bee and you want to show off her award….share it. As much as I love quilting, life is really about than quilting 24/7. BUT if you are still wanting to work on your UFOs (and I will want to be some days) you can tell us about your UFO.
So no more excuses for me about not getting some of the things done I’ve been wanting to do. After the mirror, I think I’m going to tackle a wool project that I have here….I’m so excited about the change. I hope you are too.
