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.

It sounds like several of us got the message from "Rebecca". phishing for sure.

there is a status posted on main page re: it. so i made my comment "report it"

then cause i am still mending, & the repair guys gone (along w thier gloomy prognosis regarding the impending demise of my heat pump unit :(( )am playing a sorta "hmmmmm ....wonder..." so..going to random pages of people in the featured quilters thing, people commenting on main page and some of the recent newbies...really strange spread of contactees...ooh that's an idea...naw...i am "r" you are "d" so it is not by alphabet that this is spreading and can't be by frequency of posting ie- the newbies. this is very strange. my main worry is that newbies targeted by this person might not know it is probbably spammer or worse, and contact that email address posted. that's my next game i search for that email domain...i think it is bogus...which would really be bad and connect one to a bad site that hacks your pc or mobile ...sigh..think i'll fix another cup of tea first :)) slay dragons w the help of a nice stout cup of green tea!

hi deanna,
down at the bottom right hand corner of every page on mqp are three links. the one in the middle "report an issue" click on that. it takes you to another page w comment box. buttons describing your issue or just "other", i used that this a.m. and in past w difficulties w site function etc. response is usually quite rapid. you will get a note in your email from the site w what to do. on my page she gave me her personal email address and asked i contact her privately...i don't post my private email on web ever. especially a social networking site such as mqp. we have excellent contact via the "friends" thing that i see no reason to post more.

that said, i do have a note on my page from "rebecca" asking that i send her a privat note to her personal email address on my page. and have seen it on some other pages. if you go to "rebecca's" home page it says she lives senegal. going to the webb address she has posted takes you to the blog of a longarm quilter in michigan. with this type of situation, i understand, we should contact the site overseers and report it. very easy to do...i have already done it and i think that all that have recieved this note on thier home pages should report it. i think that that will let the site security managers know how pervasive this is. i think it is probably a "phishing" scheme.

Has anyone gotten a wierd post on their main page from a Rebecca trying to get you to email her personally to get to know 'you better' ???  Pretty suspicious .. who do we contact ?

Speaking of left over pieces .. you guys will appreciate this ... one year hubby and I took my carriage apart to refinish it. After giving it a good once over with marine varnish and about 4 coats, he came to me after he put it back together. Honey, he says, I don't know where I screwed up but I have these 2 pieces left .. all I could think of was the list of things we had taken apart (and he had put it back together while I was at work). Well,  I took the pieces and laughed -- they were the footman's loops, which go underneath the shafts. They should be the last pieces to put back on .. phew !

Hmmmm...maybe THAT'S why our men glance at the instruction sheet AFTER finishing a project.( 'specially if there are little left over pieces lol).

Man do I know what it's like to throw a project in the corner from not getting it especially when I was making Civil War gowns. Those patterns come with next to no instructions. Then all of a sudden (I forget which of you said it) an ephiany hits you and all of a sudden everything falls right into place. And sometimes as I love to say  "patterns are only suggestions" and I do it my way and I get done a lot faster and end up with the same results. The same with quilting "patterns are only suggestions".

@Riana, thanx for asking. It's getting closer. Doug was sent to Kansas this week to start having work done on the building. Now this weekend he's gotta start winterizing the camper as it should not be full of water in these temps. HR and big boss are s'posed to get together for salary / relocation package and we should know something this coming week. We'll see what they propose. I am not looking forward to packing up my projects, (and the rest of the house) so trying to finish a few more so they can get out the door before I do. The less I can take the better !

i agree...dee, doing it "your" way makes it "your"quilt. not one like dozens of others w slight differences in fabrics. i made most of my own cloths in high school and on into adulthood. my response to the inevitable "why" i don't see a dozen "me's" coming down the street towards me w the same outfit from wards penny's sears ....... and "your" way on this civil war project will result in as fantastic a quilt as "your" other quilts.

riana ....what an intriguing thought. that scenario has bugged me forever....but i think you have pegged it good! i know that that theory has a lot to do w our dreams.
