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.

Barbara, it was very sad to hear of Nancy Zieman's cancer returning. I think she has a strong faith to see her thru this. I do hope her caregiver talked her into a therapy dog after they stopped Indy and I at the quilt show last fall. A therapy dog could be such a comfort right now.

Elizabeth, I'm so sorry to hear this. I know how hard this must be for you. Praying for you too.

Riana, glad you can hear again!

Hi Linda,

Thank you so very much!  I phoned my son last week but he was suffering so much he did not want to talk to me.  He has no positive memories of me.

Yesterday, I was disappointed in Craftsy's free class day.  I could only find a choice of 4 classes so I watched Kimberly Einmo's Magical Jelly Roll Quilts.  She did Jacob's Ladder, Chain Saw, Lonestar, Easy Charm Cathedral Windows and Flying Geese Crossing.  The problem was that the course materials were not available  and not all the information was given during the program.  I took copious notes and drew pictures.  She is an excellent teacher and I did learn stuff.

Riana, I got my hearing tested after a woman at the Church quilting told me I was hard of hearing.  But I'm not!    I'm glad that you have hearing aids now.  Hubby has 2 powerful ones but he still can't hear me well.

Sad to see Nancy Zieman is retiring due to another bout with cancer. We are praying. The Lord is still full of compassion and tender mercies. Nothing is impossible with Him. Psalm 30.

Mary, fun story!

Elizabeth, continued prayers for your son.

Elizabeth, a pacemaker these days is so much better and reliable than the early ones like my mom needed. I'm sure all will go well. Sad, though, to hear your son is still ill...he sure is a fighter. That is what's so hard on you, l think.

I got my hearing aids last week. I can now hear the rustle of fabric, and all the little clicks & whirs of my sewings and other appliances...and hubby no longer needs to repeat himself 2 or 3 times!

Years ago I was talking to an Hopi Gentleman about the Museum of Northern Arizona.  He had spent many summers growing up at the Museum while his father did art demonstrations.  At that time Ted Danson (of the TV Show, Cheers) was also a kid there as his Dad was one of the curators.  My Hopi friend was the larger of the when they played Cowboys and Indians He was the cowboy and Ted had to be the Indian.  Aren't kids great?

Elizabeth and Mary, Flagstaff is a very nice place. I use to go up there several times a year when I lived in Arizona either on my way to the Grand Canyon and  Williams or on my way to Farmington, NM by way of the Navajo Reservation. The Museum of Northern Arizona is well worth the time. Their exhibits are so interesting. I especially liked the pottery and Navajo weaving. You have to stay in Hotel Monte Vista. They say it's haunted, but I've stayed there a few times and never once experienced anything. I think Jim's service dog Indie protected us. lol The university also has a planetarium but never got there. It's suppose to be one of the best places in the world to see the planets and stars. Flagstaff also has an Amtrak station so sometimes I go to Flagstaff and then take the bus or shuttle down to Phoenix.

And, my daughter-in-law and 2 grandchildren live just north of San Francisco in San Rafael.

Hi Mary,

What is your grandson going to study?  You must be proud of him.  I have been to Flagstaff once on our way to and from the Grand Canyon.  The van tour guide stopped and we looked at the sky to identify the stars etc.  It must be a nice university town.

Riana, we have all sorts of things in common.  My grand daughter lives in San Francisco.  I didn't know it was so hot there.  She gave me a nice tote bag from there for Christmas, along with a quilt book.

Hubby is having a 3-wire pacemaker installed this week on Thursday.  It is not even considered surgery at the Heart Institute just a procedure.  So we are not nervous - just as well.  My son is very sick and we do not know if he will ever recover.  I have seen a psychologist and she is helping me.

Just wanted to remind those who may not have heard.  Craftsy on-line classes are free on Labour Day Monday.

Our eldest daughter lives near San Fran. and couldn't believe the's usually much more temperate there. They are renovating a house in Santa Cruz and moving there next week. I hope it cools off for them...they have a 1 yr. old baby.

Yes, it's likely global warming .One day in the not too far future, we'll pass the point of no return. Many scientists have warned us. But unfortunately , your commander and chief doesn't agree.
