The last day in April - challenge ending


I feel like I am on a Use or Lose mission this year, throughout my house actually, but especially in my sewing corner and sewing room.
As a result of that I have been participating in a 5 before 5 / 15 before 5 challenge on the Scandinavian quilt list Quilt Skandinavia.

I enjoy challenges, and I have actually finished 15 Ufos, which also includes some of the care quilts this spring.
So, when I say I have finished 15 Ufos and 15 care quilts, they total less than 30 finishes, but more than 20. I have not kept a list, but reported to the challenge mom as I have moved along, so it is a guesstimate right now. Who cares anyway, as long as 15 care quilts can warm 15 sick children and the Ufo / Wisp ( Work In Slow Progress) pile is shrunk by 15 ?


The 15th Ufo finished:


I see that many of my Wisps are Christmas related and that has given me food for thoughts.
Conclusion: Do not start that many Christmas projects in 2011!

5 before 5 / 15 before 5 challenge finished for this year :-)
