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.

Beautiful Lone Star Carol. Looks like another fun quilt Riana.                             Riana has some good ideas. So sorry for those who have lost everything. It seems every year something very hard hits. Please be careful and prepared It's hurricane season. Our prayers are with you.

Mary, my heart goes out to you...l can't begin to imagine the insecurity let alone the air pollution.Our daughter with her baby & hubby are safely settled recently in Santa Cruz...but they almost bought a home in Santa Rosa. What if you parcelled up your favorite quilts ( and what about the tapestries?) and UPS them to a safe location with a friend? You could get them sent back afterwards... As far as your pets are concerned, l'm sure if you hook up your trailer to your vehicle " at the ready", so to speak, you could quickly put them in & leave; have it packed & ready with food, water, litter.

What a terrible cloud hanging over you all there in CA. Vent all you want, Mary! We can't do much but pray and keep good thoughts for you. Maybe a little preventative storing at a safe location of special quilts and personal treasures, for a time, rather than having to pick only bare bones articles in an emergency situation?

Good news Elizabeth.

Fun projects Carol and Riana.

Feeling depressed by the fire news, the slowness of help for many of the Hurricane victims, and my limited ways to help.  One of the recent fires almost caused the local animal shelter to evacuate-we were on the wrong side to help if needed.  Friends getting on Facebook talk about their evacuations.  Waking up in the night to another dry wind starting and wondering when-not if we will be asked to leave our home. The constant smell of smoke keeps your mind there. How to pack up the dogs and cats.  What one quilt to take??  Sorry to vent like this.  People here try not to discuss what is on all our minds.

Love your Halloween quilt, Riana! The softer colors are very appealing to me!

What a lovely Lone Star, Carol! That is quite an accomplishment to finish the top so fast! 

So thankful to hear your husband is doing well, Elizabeth. It is such a blessing to have a facility so close for you. 

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canada members!

Elizabeth, good news! Happy to hear your hubby is doing well.

Carol, beautiful quilt! The touches of (pink (or red?)) make it sparkle.

Riana, love your quilt too! I love anything fall.

Thank you, Carol and Deanna.  Last night was my first night alone for a long time and I was a little uneasy that the balcony door would not lock.  I called our Sup this morning and he adjusted it and it is working well.  He doesn't have to do chores like that because this is a condo but he is so good to all the residents, especially helpless old ladies! LOL

Yes, Carol Hubby is in the Heart Institute.  It is a world class medical centre and we are so lucky it is here in Ottawa.  When did your Mom have her valve replaced?  Did she have a TAVI, the new procedure where the Drs. go in through the groin or side of the chest?

I love your Lone Star!  Where did you take the course?  Do you do your own machine or hand quilting?  Or do you send your quilts to the LLAQ?

Comment by Riana Noyes on October 11, 2017 at 8:21am

Wow, Carol, l LOVE those border prints you so aptly used in those borders. A very rich mixture of blues.

Elizabeth, l'll bet you're relieved that they finally went ahead with the operation, it must've been nerve wracking getting bumped twice...glad he's now recovering. 

Comment by Carol Johnson on October 11, 2017 at 5:32am

Hi everyone!

That is a fun quilt Riana!!

Mary, that tapestry sounds like it is going to be amazing!

Happy to hear that your hubby is doing well Elizabeth! Is he at the Heart Institute? That is where my Mom had her valve done and they took really good care of her :)

So, is it ok to add another project to my UFO pile? This is one that was started at a workshop on Friday, taught by Patty Carey from Northcott Fabrics. It was finished up at home between Friday night and early Saturday morning. Now it needs the quilting...
