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.

Linda, what perfect companion fabrics you found for the puppies!

Ginny and Elizabeth, I would love to have you in the classes...we could do all sorts of silly knitting.

Good on you Elizabeth for being diligent with your dermatologist.

The library took this week off.  The tapestry folk still met today.  I actually got to sit with them and be in on all the gossip and jokes.  One of the faithful stitchers is trying to buy a woolen mill that makes batts and cleans and straightens wool for spinners.  I hope it works for him as I love to use wool batts.

Linda, your quilt top is so cute!  And I love your pieced backing.  It will be fun to quilt it.

I completed my #11 block of the R&R civil war sampler.  I get excited every Monday when the new block comes.  My friends told me that I lead an exciting life.  I went to my annual follow-up with my dermatologist today.  She sprayed one  growth and did a biopsy of the growth between my nose and mouth which she said is probably a basal cell cancer and she did a biopsy of one on my back at my waist.  Now I have to see a plastic surgeon that she will arrange.  But there is a wait.

Here's the front and back of the puppies quilt. Now to sandwich and quilt as soon as I make up my mind how I'm going to quilt.

Oh, what a fun time teaching young ones, Mary! Your subjects sound very interesting! Wish I could sit in!

Your classes sound like such fun!  I think that I would like to attend the camp too, Mary.  I did Block#11 of the R&R civil war quilt this morning.  I like her technique for doing hourglass patches.

  1. Am teaching four afternoons at the local art camp at the end of the month.  I thought I would have one group for the 8 hours and I got pretty ambitious.  Turns out, I will have only 4 hours with two different groups ages 5 to 11!  Maybe ten to a class.  Back to the drawing board.  The theme is Scandinavia..I'm half Norwegian...and there are so many possibilities.  I'm calling my class,"Loop to Loop", including lucet and tube knitting,  wire weaving to make a small torc, and a knitted bunny with a built in ski sweater (the bunny made out of a square). If I ever get it under control I will demo Nalbinding- the pre-knitting technique.  I thought we could read Mythology as we work.  I wish I could teach as well as I enjoy planning.

Riana, the duck quilt is really adorable!

Now that the dog quilts are with my younger son I can breathe easier.  I did some scrapbooking this morning after breakfast with my son and passing on the quilts.

But, on no!  I printed Block 1 of Grandma's Kitchen Challenge with Pat Sloan.  Anyone else did the same?
