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.

Liz, how fantastic.  Congratulations on their engagement.

Mary, hang in there.  Hopefully all these stresses will end soon.  I will end up donating some fabrics to the sewing group.  Have lots of scraps so maybe I can work on quilts.

Wow, Zoe, you were a night owl.  Hopefully that doesn’t happen often.

Mary, I feel so badly that you are having such a terrible time trying to get the house sorted out.  But don't turn to drink (I limit myself to 1 small glass of wine per day).  I grew up in a house where my father and my grandmother were alcoholics.  It was too hard for them to cope with the vagaries of life.  Turn instead to your Hawaiian quilt.  We need to be sober to quilt nice little stitches and sew a straight line! LOL

Count me in, Riana, I want to go buy some of Mary's fabric at the thrift shop.  My daughter and I are planning to visit the local thrift shops.  There are lots within walking distance of my condo.  You know, I haven't finished ironing that great stack of fabric that I bought a few weeks ago.  And then, I added to it.

Mary, you are on such a roller coaster ride! At least there's hope for your aging solar generating system. Your house should be refurbished by Christmas if everyone shows up as promptly as your wonderful painter , (though that might make it all the more difficult to leave.) Now l want to go shopping at your local thrift shop < grin>!

So, the generator can be fixed??

Will, maybe that is good that the painter found dry rot, never a good thing. In some areas on the home I had them put up hardy Board.

Mary if you need a night cap right now, that is okay. Just try not to do it every night.

My lower back and hips hurt from lifting the one container I have the Christmas fabric in, I take this as a hint.

 after many phone calls = ampc

Late Wed. the broken wire was found deep in the generator.

Thursday the batteries were not charging, nor were  the solar panels talking to the house.  ampc  it looked like the batteries were charging. Painter found lots of dry rot.

This morning no batteries or solar...had to run the generator all day so painter could bleach and power wash more of the house. Only one leaky window. ampc  Builder here today to estimate his needs for replacing some batten boards and the dry rot repair.  Appointment for inverter guy tomorrow.  I know what emergency calls cost..wonder about emergency week end calls.

Many years ago the neighborhood voted for no electricity.  The company would not put it underground...though the telephone people had.

Knitting between phone calls.  Set up little quilt frame with Hawaiian Quilt.

Paul delivered the car load of  presorted fabric  to the thrift store.  They were so excited.

Drank too much last night to relax....can't do that again tonight, though I am tempted.

Maybe rain coming next week.

Elizabeth,  As I find time I will start making scrape quilts, most will be simple patterns. I was really shocked as I went though the fabrics at seeing all that I have. I fabrics for "Beach", fabrics for " Nature" , fabrics for " I-spy", etc. So., yes.. no more buying fabrics. I have a cousin who this year told me she does not want to exchange gifts anymore, will that would have been nice had she said something last year because I bought fabric to make her a flamingo quilt, I had planned to make me one too, so I have enough for two. I might need to sell some items on the site to sell quilt related items, Quilters Classified on FB.

Zoe, you can never have too much fabric.  You just need to figure out where to put it.  I have the same problem with finished quilts.  But Christmas is coming and some of my new family are going to get a quilt!  My almost grandson-in-law is going to get one for his birthday.  I have to find one that is "manly" in my stack.  And he has twin 7 year old nieces who are going to be at his birthday party and I am going to give them each one.
