I can’t sleep, and whilst watching DVDs of Stargate SG-1 I’m also reading blog posts that pop up in google reader.
I can’t be the only sewist that doesn’t have any UFOs! This week’s The Sew Weekly Challenge is UFOs (unfinished objects AIUI). I’ve been sewing for about six years and have never had a UFO. If I am sewing something then I am either happy about the idea of wearing it once it is finished, or I know that I’m never going to wear it so there is no point in finishing it.
UFOs just make no sense to me, unless they are very short term and just waiting for the right buttons or trim, etc.
As an example, the tunic I sewed could perhaps have become a UFO, but what’s the point? I suppose I could have put it in a drawer somewhere (but in my small flat that would be difficult), but it was far easier to alter it so that I like it. I still may not wear it, but if I’d left the neckline as it was I know I would never wear it.
I am going to make a bet here – I bet that at least 90% of the Sew Weekly contributers who finished their UFOs because of this week’s challenge never wear their UFO garments again.
Maybe it’s because I live in a small flat with limited storage, but I will never understand UFOs.
