I told you last night I would tell you the difference in a WIP, PHD's, and UFO's as I understand them.   

According to Myra's PHD Challenge a PhD stands for Project Half Done.  A half done project is not a finished project.  A finished Phd is a fully finished project, quilted, bound, and ready to use. 

A UFO stands for UnFinished object and most cases is done at whatever stage you want to call it done.  I have to admit, I call a UFO done when it is ready to quilt.  I think I like PhD's better.  Cuz I don't want to have to deal with it again unless it's to admire the finished work. 

WIP's are just Works in Progress and again its done at whatever stage you want to call it done. 

I've already posted my UFO List and am ready to "get er done"!  Two of my good friends and I are getting together tomorrow afternoon and I'm taking my first UFO to work on.  I know it's not 2012 yet but it's close enough.  I'm taking the "Let's Play" quilt to work on... Of course that's after I make my granddaughter Raleigh a pillow and pillowcase for her baby doll and a "love-y" blanket for her baby doll just like her "love-y" I made for her.  For those who don't know our lingo, a "love-y" blanket is simply a 12 patch top made from minkie with a satin backing.  I made her a small one (18" x 24") when she was born 3 1/2 years ago and it is her favorite still today. 

Do you have your UFO/PhD list made?  Are you ready to work on them in 2012?
