Do you have other creative hobbies?: Scrapbooking, crochet 

What’s your oldest UFO? Any tips on how you keep them from piling up?: Quilt I designed and bought material for about 22 years ago. Picked it back up recently, and now I have all pieces cut out! I don’t necessarily have a lot of ufo’s right now, but I guess it’s because I’m usually making things for a certain occasion. Anything that piles up is because it’s for me, which is this one I’m working on now. I’m very excited about getting to it!
