UFO = UnFinished Object

At what point does a project go from "in-progress" to "unfinished object"? I have this basket of items that are in various stages, which I consider to be UFO's.

UFO Pile

This is how I would define it... for me projects become UFO's when they are neglected for awhile and I've just lost the drive to finish it. On the other hand, I also have some in-progress projects that are taking me a little longer to complete just because other more urgent projects come up (i.e. Mother's Day gifts, etc.). These projects to me would not be considered UFO's; however, the likelihood of these eventually becoming UFO's are high.

Miss Lulu announced that she was going to bust her UFO stash and has already posted her first bust here! I'm going to join her in her UFO Busting mission. I also have lots of items that need mending (i.e. hemming, attached buttons, etc.) so in addition to busting my UFO stash I'm going to bust my MEND pile.

I, Angela, have a UFO stash and a MEND pile. I pledge to bust at least one UFO a month and mend three garment each month for at least the next 3 months.

As I write this I've already busted my stash and pile for June! :)


  1. Yay, so glad you jumped on this little bandwagon. This'll motivate me to keep going. That's a great definition for a UFO btw, but it does pose a great philosophical question - at which point does it go from WIP to UFO?

    1. That's what we're here for... to keep each other in check. :) It's a great questions, right? ;)

  2. For me, it's the moment I start a different project. The truth is that if I've set it aside to begin something else, it will be a UFO! Ad thanks for reminding me that I'm supposed to be resolving these with y'all... Oops :)

    1. Hehe... get on it, girl! (said in the most loving tone) :)
