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.

Barbara, love the pillow .. black and pink rock! 

I have been busy @ work, coming home and just veggin' - training due to admin leaving and we have to learn how to do everything she does, and she leaves next Tuesday.  The home inspection was eye opening, we knew the house was built in '68, but there are some updates that can be compensated for due to age and replacements that will be needed within the next year.  The electric panel is a big concern as it will need replacing, but I will need to have a certified electrician look @ it to see what it would cost to bring it up to code / update.  It may not be an issue really.  The roof was done sometime in the last 10 years, and poorly.  They just reshingled the roof over the other shingles and the nails used don't go thru the to the sheeting, so in wind storms, the shingles are coming up.  In severe storms (like the one we are  having tonight), this would be a concern.  So, the time to go look at it would be tomorrow to see if there are any leaks anywhere in the attic / ceiling areas (the sellers did mention one area where it would leak behind the carport on a disclosure form).  So, I still like the house, updates for baths / walls / floors can come over the next year + .. lots to talk about.  I am still the only one working, Doug will now officially retire and try to find something else. So priorities are going to change drastically. And I just want to sew ..

So tonight, a friend came over and we sorted scraps in the bags I got from a friend ~ two bags done and into a box.  Trmw is QOV day so I will do a lot of thinking while I am sewing ~ storm is s'posed to continue through the morning .. 2 dogs don't care, 3rd one is having panic attack due to thunder. 

Will keep you posted and I will continue to dismantle the room so I can be ready :)

Thank you for all the kind remarks ladies. Not to many have been posted yet. They did have some very nice ones. We will find out April 4th who the winners are.

Barbara, I have to agree with Mary's comments. The pillow is beautiful.

Dee, how did the house inspection go?

Comment by Riana Noyes yesterday

Beautifully finished, Barbara. lt deserves to be a winner.

Dee, l don't envy you having to pack most of your sewing gear. When l move,next to kitchen items, mines it's the last thing packed & the first out,lol.

Comment by Mary Moore yesterday

This combination of embroidery and fabrics looks very high end professional.  Are you a secret interior design person, Barbara?

Comment by Barbara Hughes yesterday

So here is the pillow I finished it and entered it today at NZ 2017 Pillow Challenge.

Good luck, Dee, on the house inspection. Look forward to seeing photos of your Easter and elephant banners.

When do you head back home, Riana?

Comment by Deanna Davis on Monday

Spent most of the daylight hours repacking my sewing room, aka things I am not using at this very moment.  I may have made more of a mess I'm afraid  lol  Now I am stacking boxes against my design wall, but I have to reach that... hmmm .. maybe not such a good idea.  My table is much cleaner, so I can size the elephant wallhanging and add the borders, did the math and have got my final sizes.  Then it's spray baste and quilt, bind.  AND I am making a banner for Church for Easter .. and the fabric arrived Friday at work.  So I need table top to cut the background, and of course must do the interfacing/fusible thing for the other pieces.  Piece o'cake  hahaha

Still have not procured someone to do a home inspection .. what is the deal??  I know it's spring break, but hey, answering phone calls is primary to any 'business'.  

<and it is going to be hard to work today>

Way to go, Linda & friends. The animals need something homey in their ( hopefully) temporary environment.

I'm binding my last 2 projects. The rest of my time here in Fla. will be spent top stitching Honor Flight quilts made by group members here at Water Oak.
