quick question for y'all

dan_the_mailmanFebruary 18, 2012

okay, my 8th grade science teacher used to tell us that there is no such thing as a stupid question, though I kind of feel like this might be one. what exactly is a UFO? I'm thinking it's an unfinished ___________ __________.

anyone else have any questions we can get answered in this thread?

UFO - Un Finished Object.

There are also WIPs - works in progress.

And my favorite WISPs - works in slow progress, LOL.

It's interesting that on this forum a UFO stands for Unfinished Object.

In the daylily world, UFO or UFo stands for Unusual Form (flowers).

thanks everyone! I don't know why that's been on my mind lately, but I hate not knowing something that's being talked about, don't you?
all I can say now is, someone call project bluebook, because there are too many ufos around my sewing desk!

...now, to get some sleep and start turning those WIPs into quilts!

Love the PIGS. Especially since I just had placed my paper pieced wall hanging in a grocery sack. LOL
