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.

That is beautiful Deanna! 

We had cold and wind with some rain/snow mix.  Today, the sun is out the skies are clear and supposed to be a bit warmer.  I have lettuce coming up, radishes, and now the potatoes sprung their little heads out.  The rhubarb is ready to pick I think by Sunday for some yummy punch.

healing up good.  I am trying to be still, but driving me crazy.  when I get going to much, it tells me so.  Wedding was nice.  Brother may be mad at me because I did not let my girls and family end up doing all the work of set up and tear down.  So new SIL is not liking me and that is just fine.  My girls are not white slaves to her little .......Ok, quit laughing at me.  I so do not like disappointing people, but the bridesmaids did not even lift a finger to set up or clean up as well as the matron of honor.  We helped cook, set up, serve cake, run music, photograph and video the whole wedding and after photos, so when I could not get to the bathroom by myself, I said enough and we left.    Afterall, I even booked their honeymoon and got all the arrangements for that done and paid for a portion of it.  Come on now, enough please and all without a thank you from her.  Ok, enough venting.

I think I might finally get a ufo done this coming summer.  I am getting some help with the applique part which will get it finished.    I am thrilled.  Only started it about 8 years ago.  So glad someone offered to assist. 

How is everyone else doing?  I know spring is here and we all want to be outside having some fun in the yard.  Waiting for my other flowers to get here in the mail so I can plant all my bulbs.  the dahlias and glads are sprouting in their compost mulch.

Weather must be breaking all over if no one has posted a thing since the 20th !  We've had 2 straight days of rain (aka mud from ear to ear) and today the sun finally came out .. I'm changing sheets, and planting / weeding .. did take out the log cabin and put it on the wall so I could put the border up against the side to see how I liked it .. I do !

My daughter's best friend's mom was a supply teacher. Once in a while, she was called in to teach her own daughter's class. The standing instructions she told her daughter was to call her Mrs.--- while addressing her in class. Poor kid forgot, and called Mrs. Mom:))

We arrived in Myrtle Beach S.C.,just in time for big thunderstorm. So sorry to hear of bexplotion in Texas at fertilizer plant. Such a small town...everyone effected.

Dawn -- cool idea !!!  Will have to keep that in mind  LOL

2nd quilt (improved 9 patch) has made a full recovery -- phew ! I used an entire bottle of hydrogen peroxide .. wine out -- and shout .. and resoaked it and rinsed .. and hung to dry .. checked it before I went to school today -- woo hoo !!!

Now to get these two ironed carefully and see what I've got to work with  ..

Had 4th grade today .. testing .. kids .. Mrs. Davis, there's an open response question, do we have to answer that ? 

Me: this is a TEST, is the open response attached to the test ?

Them:  Yes ..

Me:  I repeat, this is a TEST ..

Beth, so glad you got thru it ok :)))

Fabric conservors use a net bag to get quilts from tub to flat area to dry w/o tearing delicate stitches. Just stopped at Flying J in Brunswick Ga. & thought l'd check in  to see what's up:)
