If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

Good girl, Riana!

Just adopted "Dizzy" from the deceased owner's brother(he already had 5 dogs).  He knew little of her background, except she was loved and spoiled from puppyhood, 16 years ago. He couldn't bear to put her in jail.  We will have to start from scratch with a vet.  She fit into the pack within hours.  Now we are back to 6 animals. Yeah?

I had the pillow panel for ages in my " animal" bin...couldn't decide on a quilt for it, though l knew it would end up a fundraiser. When l still had fabric left over from my " Floppy ear puppy" quilt, l just improvised and came up with this 34" wall hanging ( with sleeve" for Humane Soc. 's sale.

i'm glad that i posted those words, then elizabeth. i hesitated fil is now doing so well that he is even maintaining w/o help for household chores. he finally gave up driving yr before last and had a woman who came in to fx meals, clean house, take him shopping etcetcetc, but she had a massive stroke last summer and he is now basically alone w all his own needs to care for. he has a woman that does his grocery shopping when she does her own, but that,s all. we are worried. he lives alone in his own home. so of course we worry. almost 94, alone ..we worry. tell your hubby it's amazing the benefit resulting from that simple valve replacement. without it, i don't think my fil would be able to do what he does now so successfully.

Hi Rogue,

I read your posting to my Hubby and he said that it was good to hear that it works so well for someone.  Yesterday I tired myself out with chores and reorganizing my sewing room.  Today I am machine quilting and doing some work in between on my room.

Hubby and I are watching Ken Burns' series on the Vietnam War.  On Monday an outstanding series is starting on Canadian T.V. - Margaret Atwood's Alias Grace.  It is going to be on Netflix too.  I read the book - every Chapter is named after a quilt block.  Her books are part of the golden age of Can.Lit.  All the people who worked significantly on the series are women.

good news then! my fil had the pacemaker installed years ago and then last winter they did a valve replacement, which amazed me. he is 94, 95 in november. he is off of supplemental oxygen, walking and getting around almost as well as he did five yrs ago before his health started to fail. i have high hopes that the prognosis for your beloved hubby will be that he does as well as my fil. good luck blessings to you both.

and it's sooo nice to be back! :))

Hi Rogue,

So glad that you are back with us.  Hubby had a deluxe pacemaker installed 2 weeks ago.  I've been looking after him.  But Hubby always did so much around our home that I am run ragged picking up all his chores! LOL  He is doing fine.  We go back to see the Dr. next week.  After that, we are waiting for an artificial valve installation in mid October.  He should be as good as new.

elizabeth, not only did i miss visiting w everyone here @ mqp, i seem to have missed a lot of what's going in everyone's personal worlds. for instance ..nurse for your hubby!?! i am so sorry to hear that he isn't doing well. so glad that he has someone like you to see that he prperly cared for. my hubby & i are like that. and my son has been telling me for years, as my arthritis & back worsen, that i never need worry ..he'll always have a spot for me in his home. as we age & age does its thing to us it's good to know we have a loved one nearby to help. your hubby is blessed. and i do hope that whatever sils him is reversible.
