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.

Dee, We have been looking around for a bigger car. One that would pull our trailer (pop up) and room to take things to the dump and thrift stores. We saw a 1999 Toyota Sienna for $3,999.00. It was clean inside and out like new and road nicely. It had 149,000 miles on it. They must not have had kids or pets or smoked. We were really interested in it but wanted him to come down to the blue book price. It slipped through our fingers, someone else got it. I have to say it was nice, but maybe there is something better down the road. It was almost 20 years old. But those cars can go a long way. However If we were in an accident I think the insurance co. would only give us blue book price.

Dee it's hard to survive without two bathrooms!!!! Do think you made the right choice. Not getting stuck with the other house was smart. Sounds like you may have had to put tons of money into it.

Thanks all, just a quick note to sort the confusion.  I did make an offer on a house a couple months ago, but terminated the contract due to review of the inspection .. just felt like they were hiding something by dressing it up and it was a very bad DIY.  So I terminated it.  I found this house last week, even is listed by my RE agent, so he is on both sides. I found it on Zillow, he didn't think to tell me as it only had 1 bath and he knew we wanted 2, but it is well kept, a bit of a larger feel, and the backyard backs up to an open area of a church.  Doesn't feel like I am hemmed in .. may have to prune some of the trees as they are mature and shade the yard / house well, but I do a bit of sun time :)  Now off to church for a meeting ~ hope everyone enjoyed the Mother's Day .. the dogs vac'd the house for me  hee hee and boy, were they tired !!

Linda thank you for telling me about all the wonderful sites to see. I have never been to Wisconsin... might have to go there sometime in the summer.

Very nice for your niece and family. Door County is a super place to go. I watched how they pick cherries with a small tractor that opens an umbrella type thing under the tree then shakes it till all the cherries fall off. It's may be hard to believe it but it's true. LOL!!

Zoe, Oshkosh is a fun place. I've been there for the EAA and Barbara and I have gone to the quilt show there. My brother lives in neighboring Neenah which is also a fun place. They are located on the shores of Lake Winnebago. There are some really nice quilt shops up there. The air museum is very interesting as well. From there it's not that long of a ride to other places of interest like the Cedarburg quilt museum, Nancy Zieman's store, Madison, Green Bay, and I'm sure other places I haven't been to yet. My brother has taken me to the races and car shows. I have friends in Milwaukee that have taken me to the botanical gardens, more quilt shops, lots of good places to eat, to the Taste of Home store. My niece and her family (who currently live in Appleton)  may be moving to Door County to take over her husband's parent's B&B. Another place to visit!! I love visiting Wisconsin!!!
