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.

Ah, Mary, l once did a strandwork 2 colour Norwegian design on a sweater, and learned the hard way about pulling the threads too tight on the sweater's back ( knitted first) didn't show up until l'd completed many more inches of the back, sigh. The xmas stocking idea is brilliant.

Just finished one of the contest socks a two color stranded...wasn't really thinking is beautiful purples and lilacs with snowflakes randomly falling.  It won't go over my heel.  They are letting me compete it along with a larger one(which I need to finish by Sunday Night) as it did follow the directions.  I have been so sleep deprived that I pulled all the strands really tight.  I have enough yarn to make a third larger sock.  The small one will make the world's most elegant Christmas sock.

I need to get a camera out so you can all laugh with me.

Thank you for all the input about piecing backing!

Riana ,  you have a good point. That you all for your thoughts on using that. I will find another table.

Thank you, Riana.

I'm working on my Bees Quilt now.  Monday I am going to have 2 boo-boos removed by my dermatologist at the Montfort Hospital.    I don't think it will hurt.

Carla, l longarm ( midarm on a frame, actually) for our group in Fla. I get pieced backs all the time...even two sided pieced quilts. They all quilt up well. I prefer to press open piecec backs... but if l forget, it doesn't make any difference in the stitches.

Mary, maybe they'd let you knit while you listen? Or just act biased when they ask if you have preconceived notion as to guilt,lol.

Zoe, the antique has knee hole on left, which means no place to support the quilts & other projects that will fall off end to left while sewing. Besides, that finish is pristine...hate to think what pins & scissors, etc. would do to it. A nice low utility table would be those with enamel tops you sometimes find at thrift store...if there are wooden legs, even better, as you can cut those down to get a perfect height.

Elizabeth, the r'r quilt is FANTASTIC! Worth the time you spent for so long putting it together. I'm sure your grandson will cherish it as an hwirloom. I especially love the background fabric you chose...makes the others pop.

Thank you, Gail.  I sent a photo to Debbie and she e-mailed me back.  I am working on her Signs of Spring quilt.  What you have to get used to with her patterns is she cuts everything a little bigger and then trims to make the units EXACT.  I'm kind of a hit and miss person and I have to adapt to her extra trimming step.
