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.

You are trulyblessed, Barbara:-))

Gail, l too hand quilted everything...until l realized l wanted to make more quilts than l would ever live long enough to actually quilt. So now, l hand quilt " special quilts for special people", and l've bit the bullet and learned to machine quilt ( kicking & fighting the whole way). But now l really enjoy all the actual quilting best. I use my domestic Janome ( 91/2" throat) to fmq. In Fla. I use my little travel Singer, with 7" throat; but mostly, l enjoy  quilting with my 15" midarm Bailey ( no feed dogs). I've used it as a sitdown and l also use it in a frame. It comes south with me. Luckiky, l get to sew nearly everyday, either planning, constructing, or quilting. It sure speeds things up.

Barbara, everyone looks happy with their lovely gifts. So happy you were able to all get together for Christmas.

Christmas at the Webb home. Nate and his Packer Pillow, TJ who made a wonderful Christmas Dinner. His apron reads Kiss the Cook, His three daughters who all love to cook. They are happier then they seem to appear!! ha ha!! Kaylee the youngest, her apron reads "This Little Light of Mine", Makani the oldest reads " Let it Shine till Jesus comes" and Rowena the middle daughter reads, "I'm going to let it shine." They all received cookbooks to go with their aprons. The kitchen wall art was for our daughter RIta. Of course they had all kinds of other gifts from each other. It was a fun day. This is the first Christmas we've had together since Nathaniel graduated from High School. He is 40 now. We have been together at other times. But this is the first Christmas we were all able to get together.

Up date on the attic windows.  Finished except for the binding, son is thrilled with it so and understands.  Will get the binding, label and sleeve on it this week.  He has decided to hang it.

Now it will be back to the grindstone for me and all these UFOs.  My problem is I am a hand quilter and every thing takes forever.  I usually have one on the frame and another in a hoop.  I have about, lets just say a bunch of tops in the closet just hanging around waiting to be real quilts.  I just keep making more and more, I love the whole process.

I hope that everyone is having a nice Boxing Day!  We are going to celebrate Christmas this afternoon.
