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.

Just popping in quick to say HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all of you folks in the US! I hope that you all have a warm and wonderful day together with your friends and families! OH - and have a little extra turkey for Elizabeth and I :)

Have a great day everyone! I will pop in again soon!

Elizabeth, I have that problem with folks from my church. They will not take me anywhere with Indy. I also cannot attend any church functions with Indy...not even the church picnic. The law doesn't seem to matter...or they just don't care. I try not to say too much because if it weren't for their support I would not be back in my home after the nightmare of the past 2-3 years. However, I find I attend less church functions as a result. After Indy and I were separated for those few months when I first got sick, we now both have separation anxiety.

Good job finding a sewing table, they make such a difference Barbara.

Riana, Glad you have enough electricity to press that much.  I have to really watch when and how much I use my iron.

Got a call from the animal shelter we work with.  They thought we should be ready for a new old dog.  They were amazed that two from there were still alive (we are too good to them, they said) and pleased that we had taken on two local old dogs in need.  They will call again in a few years. 

I have a achy head cold, and made Paul go do my library hours yesterday.  He needs the outside contacts and as a former Literature teacher, comes home so happy, but, I can't talk him into getting on the regular work schedule.

Both GDs have long hair so am knitting hats with holes for their ponytails.  Hope they turn out.  May have to grow my hair again.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!  Riana gets to celebrate twice but Carol and I have to wait for Christmas for more turkey.

I just spent 2 hours this morning sewing Churn Dashes.  I just love the colours I am using.  I had a nightmare last night that my Bernina wasn't working.  Someone in Grade school with me took part of it and wouldn't give it back. Haha!  I'm glad I woke up.  I put a new needle and thread in my machine to start the day right.

Linda, you are doing a fine job talking to people about service dogs.  We had an incident in Ottawa where Uber did not let a service dog into a car.

Happy Thanksgiving to all !! Hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving day with family and friends.

It's kinda fun, Riana. It has also given me a platform to talk about rescues and fostering. At one fundraiser event, a group of teenagers fell in love with Indy. So much so they went home and brought their mom back to meet him. Turned out she was one of the school teachers, but her son was home schooled (don't remember the reason why...think a medical reason). They were so interested in fostering a puppy. We talked extensively and she called me that evening to continue our talk. I gave her a flyer and contact information. I don't know if they ended up fostering thru our group or the local shelter.

Saturday I had to go to Verizon because my phone wasn't working properly. There were 2 small children ages 3 and 5 that were really misbehaving. The father was beside himself. It was crowded and taking forever. So Indy and I went over and I asked the kids if they would like to pet the puppy. It did quiet the 5 year old down and I was able to educate her about service dogs. The 3 year old...I don't think anything was going to quiet that kid down and he started upsetting Indy. My friend who took me finally came over and made me go sit down as I'm still having some vertigo from the sinus infection and he noticed Indy getting upset too.

Every where we go I educate people about service dogs, rescues, and fostering. We even educated the fire department about separating service dogs from their humans. They decided they were going to have to look into some training about that. They had no idea how traumatic it was for both the dog and human to be separated. I was speaking from personal experience. We were invited to come anytime to visit the fire dept. which we will do when the weather gets nice and we are walking up that way again.

Riana, I  hope she is able to lift her walking foot....LOL!

Thank you Barbara. You've seen Indy at his best. He remembers you and Colin so well. He even remembers your puppets! I just mention your names and he wags his tail.

Linda, how does it feel being a pet parent of a celebrity?!                                                    Not sure she can lift more than her presser foot, but l could've used some help lifting 4 bolts of dark solid backing fabric that l somehow volunteered to prewash, press & cut for our group's preemie isolette covers,lol
