Fabriholics Anonymous Linky Party: WIP List

It is time to acknowledge that there are only 23 days until my fabric fast begins.
There are currently fourteen other brave souls who have signed up and pledged to also join in our fast.  After receiving a emails asking how we are all going to band together and hold each other accountable we've agreed upon some periodic linky parties wherein we will show each other how we are doing and what we are doing to cope, I mean, persevere with the fast!
Welcome to Linky Party Number 1: Work In Progress List
 Ladies, it is time to lay it all out there...that's right...time to admit to all of the UFOs or other projects you have every intention of making but haven't yet.  I for one always buy fabric with a project in mind, unfortunately, my ideas are far more plentiful than my time!  I am hoping this fabric fast will help me stop dreaming and motivate me to start making.  This is not your regular old WIP List with a list of projects I've started, meaning I've begun cutting/sewing/quilting.  No, no, no, this WIP List encompasses all the projects for which I have fabric for and have intended to create!  I am hoping that similar to a Finish-A-Long this will help me stay on task.

Fabriholics, I encourage you to create your own list.  If you are so brave as to post it online (blog, flickr, facebook) please add your link to the party below...

Good Luck!

WOW Rebecca WHAT A LIST!!!!!
You are one brave soul to set these out for all to see.
Now I need a full day possibly to put a list together and post on my blog and then link up. LOL

Ella said...

Haven't started my list, but I'm pretty sure (just based on a brief attempt to clean/tidy/organize the sewing storage area a bit) that my list is AT LEAST as long as yours. I'll try to get to it tomorrow.

Trudi said...

Oh I think I could match your list, I know my quilting list is at least 22 long, and haven't even looked! Good luck in your challenge! I'll be cheering on!

Erin @ Missy Mac Creations said...

Hmm, I don't know whether to laugh at you or cry for you. Seriously?! Of course, I say that without even wanting to stop and think what my list would include. ;)

#1 should, of course, be to quilt that bloody Flight Across already. Sheesh girl. ;)

Erin Quinn said...

That is definitely a list! I did my crazy list the other week and came up with 32 projects!! And I know I have fabric for more :-). But I am not brave enough to fast with you, so I will sit here and wish you luck.

Hannlib said...

Ha, I call these WNQIPs - works not quite in progress! I don't have a blog to link but I am planning on joining this fast, 2014 will be the year of sewing. I'm trying not to think about wnqips till I finish my actual wips but it's a looooooooong list!

Marija said...

wow, wow and WOW!!!
I DID IT!!!! I pledged to the Fabricoholics Annonimus! I did!!!
It is the right thing to do and I will do it!! :)
besides, now I get to do a pun part of inventorying my UFOs and listing them? Now that will be hilarious, I can promise you....but will do! :)

suemac said...

Wow that is an ambitious list. I need to join in. I just purchased backing fabric for most of my WIP's so I can get them done and out of the way. I have a lot on my WNIP list also. I really am going to start my Marcelle Medallion.

Archie the wonder dog said...

Crikey, that's some list you've got there, pet! Makes me feel a little ill to see it all written down like that so maybe I shouldn't do mine - it might tip me over the edge ;o) I shall be cheering you all on from the sidelines as I'm almost on a fabric fast every day as it is but don't want to make it official! I'm going to go and get my pompoms out, ready for the cheering! Good luck!!!

Lisa said...

I look at your list and see what I should be doing!

hydeeannsews said...

holy cow, what a list! I only listed the projects I thunk I actually have a shot at making in the next 6 months. once I get those done, i'll compile my true wip list that corresponds to all my purchases. maybe we need a new term rather than 'work in progress' like 'work purchased for' or 'scathingly brilliant project I already invested in'? I don't know. I can't coin anything amazing at the moment! you smarty pants girls think of something. =)

Anne Anderson said...

Can't wait to see pictures of stuff as it moves off the list. Go, Rebecca, Go!!

Jodi @ Tickle and Hide said...

I love this list! SO honest! It was exactly one of the motivators to fast this year for me - I kept buying for a project in mind and then not doing the projects! Good on you!


I couldnt even write mine down,, My kids keep giving me those precious grandkids and my list gets on hold. But I will have fun watching yours.

Rahul Kesharwani said...

Great publish . It needs me almost Half an hour to research the whole publish. Definitely this one of the useful and useful publish to me. Thanks for the talk about.

garden log cabins - Over 10 years experience of selling cheap log cabins to share and offer advise in purchasing log cabins for your garden.

Pam @ Quilting Fun said...

I am in! Though whenever I make a commitment to not buy fabric it seems I purchase even more! So therefore have even more projects to complete. I will do up a link with pictures...soon. Pam @quilting fun

Melanie said...

Yikes, I wasn't brave enough to list all of the projects I want to do! So far I've just made a list of UFOs. Maybe later I'll do a list of future projects. Thanks for hosting!

Newbie Jen said...

I've joined the fabric fast, but I am not really creating a UFO list. Part of the rest of my quilty New Year's resolutions is to create without guilt, so the UFO list had to go. I still plan on making loads of stuff, just more on a whim.

I hope that is ok.

Pauline said...

Rebecca, you are a life-saver! I no longer feel overwhelmed and embarrassed by my own WIP list. hehehe

Can't wait to see you and everyone else blast through their own lists!
