Every once in awhile I like to get out all the ziplock bags of cut-out projects to see what there is and to, hopefully, spark the mojo.

Age of oldest UFO? Well, the truth is lost in the mists of time, but maybe 15 years.
Age of newest UFO? One hour
This week I am going to finish up the black/white/red top for M (ziplock in bottom right corner) and then I will remove the white thread from the machine and finish up the gray shirt for A. I had quite a length of fleece left after the blue print vest, so I tried cutting another one out to see if I could squeeze a vest out of 1 1/2 yards of fabric. Yes, I can. It takes a little fudging but it can be done. The next one I sew will have buttons instead of a zipper just to see if that will work. I hope it does because there are colors of fleece for which it would be impossible to find matching zippers. It will be interesting to see if I can make buttonholes on fleece.
