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.

Really cute quilt, Carla!

Happy New Year's everyone!  Been away for awhile with family issues!  Finished out the year with a hip replacement so have been working on wool applique until I can get back downstairs.  

This is one I got done:

Barbara, our son grew up a sweetheart too.  He is the son who looks after us now that his older brother is sick and his older sister is so far away.

I love your words of sewing wisdom.  I think I'll borrow it and post it on my facebook.

Elizabeth, we had a problem with our son when he was a boy also. We caught him three times. Thank God he stopped. Boys will be boys. He grew up to be sweet, fun and respectful to us. Lives near his sister but keeps more in tough then his sister does. But I can't blame her. She is a busy working mom.

Ginny, I wish I had had some smaller candles in the center. They are to big for such little girls. The oldest one is the one that loves to cook. They may fit better in a few years.

Word of Sewing Wisdom: ha ha!!

Some where recently I read that irony is the opposite of wrinkly!! ha ha!! 

Happy New Year Again!

Happy New Year!  I'm so gung ho to start off the year well.  Hubby and I are taking son and family out for lunch to East Side Mario's.  Son and grandson are avid fishermen - I wish that I had made them the fishing lure quilt.

When my son is a little guy in day care, the women had to search his pockets every day before I took him home to empty them of little cars, crayons etc.  Well, the habit stuck when he was a little older we took a week-end trip to Watertown and in Woolworth's he put a Mork doll in his pocket.  My older son noticed the bulge and it was safely removed.  But in Ames he was wandering by himself while I picked out winter clothes for the boys.  Just as we neared the exit after I paid for our purchases, we were stopped and taken to the Manager's office.  His pocket had fishing lures!  I cried and cried in the office while we were admonished and banned from the store  and I bawled him out all the way home.  It must have worked because he has refrained from stealing since.

Hope everyone had a safe New Year celebration. It's damp & chilly this morning...perfect sewing day indoors.

Resolution: My sewing machine will get a good cleanout under the bobbin today and EVERY MONDAY this year. It was a workroom rule when l had my drapery shop, but l've gotten a bit lax since, and my machine has dropped a couple of hints,lol.

Well Carla, I think you were trying to say “so much better”.   I get the gist of it.  I have bookmarked the site and will look for information soon.  So,e of the fishing lure quilts were really cute.

Happy New Year everyone.  Looking forward to making lots of progress in 2018.

Barbara, you must have a family of cooks! Great aprons! 

Happy New Year, Everyone!

I'm so glad I got my sewing room cleaned up before the end of the year. Now I can start out the new year without clutter. I have 20 irons in the fire right now.

Carla, I'd love to do it, but maybe next time.

Happy New Year Everyone!
