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.

Score - last two quilts to the quilter yesterday, and she texted me today and one of the three is done. Now she will do boy quilt #2 as the sheet that is the back will also provide the binding for both as I got a queen sheet - I know, it's cheating, but I did finish 9 quilts. Working on binding on small table runner now.  I will have to upload pix to an album instead of inserting as they are on my phone at the moment. I need to update my album big time. 

First day back to work and I only have 3 days this week, another victory. I think I only worked 14 days this month .. not retirement, but pretty good I think  

Stitch on ~

Riana, that was a nice touch.

We are suppose to get snow/rain mix tomorrow. 

Gail, I think we will try that out one of these days.

Comment by Riana Noyes yesterday

We had a huge snowstorm! We lost internet, then power. Thankfully all back now, with  milder temps.

Barbara, those birds are thread painted. The lighthouse block is not quilted. 

Liz, l hope the owners don't mind me adding a porch on the back,lol. Who'd live in such a scenic spot and not have a place to sit outdoors? Isn't it nice to get fabric for Christmas?

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips yesterday

Gail, on Saturday evenings we watch 2 hours of Poirot on PBS.  Then, on Sunday another 2 hours of Masterpiece Theatre on PBS.  The British have such talented character actors that we love to watch.  We haven't watched The Windsors yet.

We have about 6 inches of snow on the ground.  And it's cold here.  Hubby and I are hibernating like 2 sleepy bears.

Comment by Gail Brown yesterday

Barbara, If you like documentries you might want to try The Windsors.  It's pretty interesting, starts pretty much with The present Queen's grandfather up to the present day.  The historical part of it is especially interesting.  It kind of lets you see why so many of the royals in the past had some mental problems since they were all married to people they were related to.  All the royals in Europe inter-married their cousins.  Like you I do like documenteries, also like British mysteries, especially anything by Agatha Christie.

Elizabeth, you are so right about the news, very frightening and sadly somewhat crazy.  This will be our first Thanksgiving without children, grands, and greats around our table.  We all need to have some distractions in our life right now.  I'm loving the fabric in your fusible circles, very cute.  that's going to be really nice when finishd, nice cheerful colors.

We agree, Liz. The news can be very dark and nice to turn it off and put on some beautiful music.

Barbara, our newspaper had an article today about "The Crown" and all the fictional events the writer has added and the consensus is that Netflix should add a disclaimer about the fiction because viewers think the events were reality.  Hubby and I watch a lot of PBS documentaries also.

T.V. brings so much sadness into our homes with the news.  It is good that there are distracting, interesting programs to take our minds away from reality.  I can't read now as I used to with my eye problem.  Sewing scraps keep me busy and I don't have to worry if the seam is straight or not.

Zoe, sorry to hear that you are not well.  But I'm amazed at how much you tackle and how hard you work at things.

Comment by Barbara Hughes yesterday

Zoe, so sorry for the suffering you have been in. You're a worker bee. It must be hard to keep you down,

Liz, I have watched a few documentaries of Lady Jane Grey. And Some of Henry the 8th's wives. THe Holocaust, Hitler, and some other countries that also  had great distruction. There has been a lot of evil in this world. I also am intrigued by the monarchy but don't spend a lot of time on it. Love the hats they wear at every great occasion. Did read a book about Golda Meir one of the  Zionist. I've forgotten much of what I read and should read it again. Just remember it was most interesting. I'm not as knowledgeable as I would like to be I guess that is why I like watching historic documentaries.The "Crown" sounds to be something very interesting. Looks like a nice quilt is coming soon.

Hi All,

I have been trying to get caught up on all that I have been putting off. Last week I got a pressure washer and I along with another helper did all of the driveway and the walkway in the back yard. It was way more work than I realized, we did it all in 2 days and 4 gallons of gas. They county was about to read the water for the next few months to average the sewer rate. The day I was almost done, my EOE acted up and I could not get food or water down for 10 hours. I ate soft foods for a few days and added more medication and so far fine. The next day was my mom's birthday and a few neighbors took her a few things, it was nice but I had really hoped that they would have called her up and just talked with her.  

I have been busy getting Christmas gifts sent off, postage is crazy !!  The the past few days I have been making pillow cases for kids, some I told them about and some I don't know them , just a family member told me of their situation, so we are adding to their Christmas this year.

I am enjoying seeing all that you all are making, I am just not on here much right now.
