Finishes and UFO's

I finished all the quilts for the fair. Judging was last evening and I received first place ribbons on all five entries. There were very few entries and that is sad. Next year I will try to bring something for every catagory. I always follow the rules and only bring things finished since last fair. However, I was able to finish more than I had anticipated and have two ready to go for next year. I have the storm at sea wallhanging and the almost amish piece earmarked for next fair.
I am trying to finish all my UFO's before I start anything new. It is a struggle to stay on course sometimes. I brought down a pineapple I started years ago using the pineapple ruler from Possibilities. Beth gave me the instruction sheet she had for it and it called for 2 1/2" strips. I had planned on making 30 blocks apparently, that was the pieces and parts I found. They all don't measure the same and it has lost its luster. I just can't get back into it. I made a pineapple quilt with the Quilt in a day series book. It is done and quilted. I have decided this one is just never going to get any more of my time.
I will get the moring glory out that I started sooooooooooo long ago. I have one more block to applique'.
