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.

Hey Dee,  Did you ever post a picture of your new sewing room?  I remember being jealous of the two big windows.

Went back to work with week, missed my afternoon nap.  Will try to get pictures of new carpeting in the library.  We smell so much better!

Trying to catch up on all the goings on .. I feel like all I do is work, swim, sleep, repeat  lol  I have been trying to get some sewing done, honest!  I am cutting kits for QOV Sew Day, and Riana, I just did THAT one  lol  That is the Three Tours design that was done by a designer and then published by Fons & Porter in their Patriotric Designs magazine. Was designed for a family member than had done 3 tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.  

If I haven't already, welcome to the new quilters, Wilma and Holly .. 

Karen, speedy recovery for you, I may be looking at a new knee this year .. any advice for me?  Linda and I are really enjoying the WOTB study, altho' she is the one making the quilt :)  

Carla, you may have me on this gnome for Christmas 2018!! 

<back to work, yesterday was my day off!>

Riana,  you can make anything look good in a quilt!  Yesterday, I found a quilt top called "Hopscotch" from Quiltmaker magazine 1995.  I gave it a pressing and started working on a backing from 3 pieces of unusual fabric I bought at QOV.  Everyone had looked at it and decided they didn't know what to do with it so it was still unsold in the afternoon when leftovers went at half-price.  You can all guess that I bought it - can't pass up a bargain.  I'm still working at it to make it the right size for Hopscotch.

This morning I'm going to sandwich Churn Dash 2.

On my design board now. The paper pieced doll rectangle that got ousted from grandd's quilt ( " l don't like the dollies, gramma") a cutout left from a panel, plus some old ufo/ orphan blocks from the group's box. Making another collage quilt to teach fmq quilting to my class here in coming weeks.

I'm looking forward to a fun year, Linda.

Comment by Linda Koller on Tuesday

Thanks Barbara. 

I think we'll have a better Secret Santa group this year. Unfortunately 3 people didn't uphold their end last year and ruined it for their Secret Pals...altho my angel and I did make sure they got a package. This year there are better rules and everyone must sign them prior to being admitted. Hopefully, that will help eliminate this happening again. I hope we don't lose too many from last year.

Beautifiul Pic Linda.

I joined the Secret Santa for this year. Looking forward to some good times together.

Thank you Ginny! Actually that photo is 2 years old. I just kept forgetting to change it. Indy is so very happy when he gets to go bye-bye with me. I've quit going to church functions because those who drive me there will not allow Indy to come along. I guess they think ADA laws don't apply to them and don't understand that I have problems when separated from Indy. We have become advocates of educating people of what service/therapy dogs do and why they are so important for people with PTSD. People are so surprised when they learn that he is a rescue that was trained to be a service/therapy dog. There is so much misconception out there...not only about service dogs but about PTSD too. I'm always asked if I'm not a vet how can I possibly have PTSD? Most people don't realize that any traumatic experience can cause it. OK...I'll get off my soap box now.

Love my local quilt shop, but love Joanns best.  Just keep those coupons coming in. I got a slew of them for Christmas and am trying to be frugal with them.  Found I was a yard short on backing for Grand Daughters quilt because I used a directional fabric.  I know better than that. Lucky it was still there because  it was on clearance when I bought it originally.  Trying not to buy fabric that I don't have a specific use for.  Probably will use cards for batting, blades, etc.

Really like your new Avatar, Linda! Indie and you look so happy!
