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 going to town...5 UFOs in one month!! I have 2 in 6 months. Could you bottle some of that energy and send to me please??? The purse is lovely. I just got some photos of my grandson in his new jammies I made him. I still have to make a couple outfits for his other sister Hanna and for my grandson in California Joshua. Then I'm done with grandchildren for a while and I can go back to some UFOs and church projects that need to be done sooooon. I also need to start on Christmas presents soon. How soon do you think you can send that energy????

What I have to do sometimes is take a photo with my camera, send it to my email, download it, size it, then upload to site.  Long process, but when I don't have the camera, next best thing.

Lovely purse ,Beth. I am spending this week working to finish some small WIP's. Today I completed a set of 4 Christmas placemats that will be a gift. Feels good! :)

Yes, I cut this up three years ago when the kids bought me my pattern.  I got over zealous when i was making my other one and thought I would make two, well, you know the story, got put on the wayside.  But is done and nice.  I was due for a new one anyway.

Oh so excited, I finished a project this am.  My new purse is finally done.This is No. 5 for June.  Yes, I am not at my usual 10 yet, have them lined up at the Longarm.  Hopefully will get three done tonight and the other two before Saturday end of day.

I've never written a pattern for anything I created. I guess I just figure it's one of a kind and no one has ever expressed that much of an  interest anyway. I'm so impressed with quilters who also create patterns of their work.

Been in the SE and that humidity is a killer! I wanted to move to either Savannah or Charlotte. I love it there. The doctors told me I'd be jumping from the frying pan into the fire because of the humidity. Instead I moved to Arizona where I knew no one. At least in Georgia and South Carolina I knew 1 or 2 people. Talk about a step of faith!!

I'm ready for a nap. It's been a busy week so far. Take care. Can't wait to see your log cabin quilt finished.

@Linda, congrats on a finish!  I am in mid-central Arkansas .. would much rather be in AZ with no humidity. It's not humid today, just H>O>T>!

I got distracted by an egg delivery after my last post, so redid my quilt class flyer, some cards and got invited to lunch. 3 hours later I'm back to check the flock again, let the dogs out and as I'm dripping, may have to take a dip in the pool, which could be just as hot as the air. Then I will get back to my quilt ..and a bit of picking up in the sewing room so I can write that pattern for this log cabin. Helps to be able to sew it to edit the pattern if I need to  LOL

Welcome Joyce! I've hand quilted a full size but not a queen. You go girl! Be sure to take a pic and post it! We have to see this.

Deanna, are you in Arizona by any chance? My friends there are complaining of the same temps! I lived there for 11 years before I returned to Ohio. We are in the 90s but around 70% humidity. We sure could use some of that rain, Beth. I like the heat of AZ because there is no humidity. Humidity is not my friend.

This morning I finished a UFO....WOOO HOOO!!! I had a t-shirt quilt that I had started for a family function last fall but circumstances happened. Last summer at the family reunion I volunteered a quilt for the raffle to help defray some of the costs of the reunion. Here it is 1 month before the reunion and I need a quilt. So I finished the t-shirt quilt---ta-dah. It's meant for a child (46x46") and has a circus theme. I'll post a picture as soon as I take one....Have to unload the digital card first.

I've been a bit slowed down recently due to health issues. I need to get back in my sewing room and crack the whip. Just need the energy to get a move on. Maybe a nap right now would help.
