WORD for 2014 - FINISH IT UP

I've been a member of the StashBuster group for years, but had not been involved the last couple of years.  After finishing up the Christmas Holiday orders I turned the emails back on and jumped in with both feet.  Instead of a piddle little 15 projects  (see previous post)  that my Bee had us list, I started going through ALL of my projects (past & present) and while I keep adding more to the list, right now, I've got 47 (read FORTY SEVEN) UFO's that I would like to finish.

The list have been discussing the WORD for 2014.  Mine is more of a phrase... FINISH it up!

So, to that end, since the beginning of 2014 I have been quilting (and piecing) like crazy working on that list of UFO's   8 Finishes already, and it is only half way through the month!  Can I get a WHOOP?

Will list the new list - am adding pictures and sizes.  Figured that would help me get them under control.  We have an FML Retreat at the end of February, so am preparing UFO's that need piecing to work on at that retreat.  Other than that, have to get back to work piecing T-Shirt Quilts  and doing longarm quilting for my regulars.

OK, here it is ---  The lines drawn through the title are the ones I've already finished.   When I post it to the side margin, I will add links to photos!.
