WIPs: UFO Priorities

I don't know if I've ever mentioned before that I am VERY new to quilting.  I only started quilting after I started my blog and started following a lot of other wonderful ladies (and a couple of guys) and saw their amazing creations.  My focus had always been on purses and accessories with a few kids things and random things thrown in. 
 
Once I discovered the wonders of quilting everything else got put on the back burner.  BUT since I am in the process of signing up for the craft shows that I want to participate in this year, its time to get back to the business end of things :(.  I will still be working on my quilts, but they will not be my priority.
 
I had previously cut a LOT of earbud pouches and keyring clutches with the intention of getting them ready and listing them in my Etsy shop.  Somehow they got put into the closet and forgotten about.  With everyone posting about UFOs the last couple of weeks I decided to dig them out.

 
BTW, is anyone else having problems uploading photos?!
 
This is my stack of precut projects earbud pouches and keyring clutches.  The first step is to order zippers...yay shopping!  (Yes, I even get excited about shopping for zippers.)  There are several other purse that I have already cut but those will have to wait...
 
Linking up with WIP Wednesday.

  1. That's a lot of precut fabric! I can't stand when something gets lost like that, good luck with the craft show prep.

  2. Looks like you have your work cut out for you. At least you will be able to finish them now.

    I agree on the shopping aspect. Who doesn't like shopping, even if it is for zippers.
