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.

On my design wall...a storybook panel used for fussy cut blocks alternating with 4 patch blocks. Simple...just making sure Celine is ready for action ,lol. Borders yet to be added. My Bailey's not running yet...needs thorough oiling, wheels on carriage cleaned & this season, adding regulator.

Deanna, your gnomes are great!  I finished my QYAG String Quilt and took pictures of the front and back.  But I made a mistake after I printed them I deleted them,  so I won't bother to resurrect them.  I posted the photos on facebook and a friend bought the quilt so it will be picked up on Nov. 6.  She buys almost everything I make.  So I'll have to start sewing...

Thinking of you Gail … so thought I'd post a happy pic or two .. 

Once upon a time I had a pool on my deck at the farm. When we left, we packed up everything, and we used those interlocking mats under the pool on top of the deck boards. My feet have been dying lately, and it's because there is a slab under the floor and I can't stand up. So I had this idea about putting the mats down in my sewing room under the rugs. Well, sew in was today @ Hobby Lobby and I went for a few hours, but left early to come home and help Doug put the mats down. When I got home they were already done … so naturally I had to sweep and clean and reorganize .. and the weather is cooling early here, feels like December and it's only October, so it's getting close to bringing my hanging plants in etc.  So, just had to make the window area easier to get to  lol 

And working on gnomes too .. skipped a few of the ones with a lot of stitching and did the presents, tree and one with stars .. will go back to the other two and get all caught up before the last block comes out Nov 1st...

Children will be here in Jacksonville on Sunday afternoon.  Early Monday morning we will return to Lynn Haven to pack up what we can.  Meeting with insurance company late Mon. afternoon and Fema Tues. Morning.  After meeting with Fema we will leave to come to Jacksonville.  Wednesday morning we will leave for Virginia.  They had reserved a pod to be delivered and then picked up.  Company called this morning saying they would not bring pods into hurricane area.  All will be well, deep breaths, close eyes and relax.  I  would like to go o bed tonight and wake up in the morning in Virginia, more deep breaths.

I can't thank all of you enough for all the love and thoughtfulness you have a

shown me during this horrible time.

Just arrived at Lady Lake, but no internet 'til Mon. I'm at the clubhouse checking in.

Gail, once settled in your new place, let us know what you could use...we'll all help. If you get too cold in Jan., you can always take a 6 wk. vacation in Fla., and not worry about owning there.

Zoe,  We are in Jacksonville at GDs house right now.  Children from Virginia are coming here  sunday night, we will go back to Lynn Haven on Monday.  They have arranged for a large storage pod to be there Monday afternoon and we will pack up and move to Virginia.  They have several places in mind for us and we have been looking on computer as well.  They have told us that we are no longer in charge of anything for the next month, and that we should just "chill".  We are trying to obey their instructions.  Thanks to every one that has thought of us or prayed for us, we are very grateful.

Gail, Will you plan to go back to Florida, or are you done? I am so sorry that you lost your apartment. I have been to Lynn Havan about 2 years ago so I know how small and close the community is.  If I have an opportunity I will go volunteer when the opportunity arrives. I am in Pensacola and we only got light rain and wind.  Having 4 dog that do not get along, I don't know how we would get out if a storm came this way. Mom said that the traffic is so bad you can get stuck on the hwy trying to get away. I have noticed I10 is only 2 lanes getting out- that is crazy ! I was used to Texas with 10 lanes one direction. I am glad you all are safe.  Let us know what you lost and need, we all might have extras... esp, fabric.

Passing on message from Linda :

Once again my computer is down. I can't post to the UFO group from my phone.  Would you please post a message for me to Gail and all our friends in Michael's path that they are in my prayers. 

We are experiencing some rain and slightly cooler weather from the hurricanes from the Pacific but it's minor. I'll take it over the NE Ohio weather any day. Indy is still adjusting to hearing coyotes all night. His safe place is the middle of our bed.

I'm beginning to see floor space so maybe can think about setting up my sewing room. One of two cabinets I ordered arrived yesterday. The pullouts for kitchen cabinets were ordered yesterday and will be in in 2 weeks.


<and I am working! hahaha>
