Tiny Town a funtastic place for UFO group members to live.

Tiny Town  is our safe haven when life gets crazy. We are all healthy and happy here, because we know our neighbours and friends living here are quilters too. To buy a small house in Tiny Town, you must perform one random act of kindness , and to buy a larger home ( 2 chimnies), you'll be performing 2 random acts of kindness. All houses have large sewing rooms, and have been built to last.Large homes have storage for more stash, but smaller homes have bigger yards.  Here you can have housemates from your past, alive or otherwise, your present spouce ( only if you wish,lol) as well as pets from past or present. I know you will be responsible pet owers and thoughtfull neighbours, because this is just that kind of place.  Only houses on the back are for sale.

We are down to one tapestry!!! Will post the latest finish after I get it hemmed, lined, and sleeved.  The last tapestry is only using fingering and smaller yarn so I brought home all the larger leftovers.  I will sort and weigh them, and then figure out what to pay for all those partial skeins.  Though I somehow remember I bought a lot of yarn for the project in the first place.  But we need money to work on the book project to describe the tapestries.

For The Halloween party I am thinking of knitting stuff with the bigger yarns, as prizes for costumes and games.

I shared with the girls the virtual town and the up comming party. They are thinking of what they will dress up as.

Welcome Anna! You're moving in just in time for the Halloween party! The girls will love it! Too bad they missed the tea party but you can go back thru the pages and show them.

Welcome to the neighbourhood, Anna! I'm sure you and your family will feel right at home here in Tiny Town. Your girls can safely go to our village school...no pandemic here! There's a dog park ,(part of the main park at the bottom of quilt front , beyond the white fence). A swimming pool, playground and other fun attractions as well. An old style dry goods store is stocked with plenty of lovely quilt fabrics and notions.

Welcome to Tiny Town, Anna.  Riana is our Mayor. It is a peaceful town. We had a tea party last week. We all had to wear fancy dresses and hats. We played games and had a good look at Lind's (our hostess) tea sets on pinterest. We all sampled Mary's rum balls and maybe some of us had one to many. LOL!! Marys husband did some square dance calling and the whole neighborhood showed up on the street.  Lots of sweet treets were served and Linda was  the perfect hostess. Only 2 good deeds buys you a house.

So I am a bit slow. Never mind I forgot my info to log back in to this website for some time. So at first I thought this was a thread to do a house blocks swap, then I thought it was a place to work on your own UFOs but now houses are sold off. Baha I want in on the fun. Anna

Riana, most of the wall hangings were made from scraps and/or fat quarters. The leaves and pumpkin are from scraps of batiks.

Comment by Riana Noyes on September 14, 2020 at 11:58am

Linda, love the varigated oak leaves

Our Hallowe'ens often included heavy sweaters beneath costumes, or rain gear over them...for some reason, Hallowe'ens were often a cold,rainy day, sigh. Indoor safer parties are the norm for my grandkids these days, and treats inspected carefully for tampering...a whole scary new world for them, l'm afraid. Still, the decorations in yards and adorning school classroom windows always make me smile.

Comment by Linda Koller on September 14, 2020 at 11:07am

Since my boys are now men, I haven't done anything for Halloween. They never involved me with their children. However, when they (my boys) were little, the husbands took the kids trick or treating and we wives sat on one of the front porches and passed out candy while drinking warmed peach schnapps with cinnamon sticks. The fire department set up hot cider, chocolate and donuts just down the street. So hubbies and kids got warmed up too! It was not uncommon to maybe have a dusting of snow on Halloween in NE Ohio.

Made one of the DIL's block of the month mini wall hangings. Here's October...

Comment by Mary Moore on September 14, 2020 at 10:20am

I have quilt to hang that is over in my gallery.

Comment by Riana Noyes on September 13, 2020 at 9:07pm

Let's help Mary decorate for the party! Post your photos of Hallowe'en outdoor and indoor decorations. How about Hallowe'en treat recipes, or punch? I'm curious about what your family does.

Linda, I am so glad to here that your kidney funciton is improving. Please take good care concerning the dieting you're doing. Eat lots of good healthy foods. 

Comment by Linda Koller on September 9, 2020 at 10:43pm

Come on over any time Ginny! There's always scones and shortbread in my pantry. Thank goodness, we don't have asthma or allergies in Tiny Town! I couldn't have so many roses otherwise...inside or outside!!! Also, thankfully we don't gain weight here either!!

After this past week, I have to stick like glue to my kidney/IBS diet! Just got my lab work done last week and I've been cheating ever since. I haven't cheated this much since I found out I had kidney disease. Fortunately, I have 3 months to turn it back around. Saw the kidney doctor today and my kidney function is improving since I first saw him a year ago. But it means strict adherence to the diet.

I just read that there was 60 degree drop in temps. in Denver , and they got snow! Today was a cloudy 66 f here. I went golfing after 4pm with lady's league...we were all putting on and taking off our light jackets as wind came up then died down & it was humid. 

Mary l doubt your Tiny Town house will get that dirty...no big fires, just backyard campfires in safe fire rings. The air is nice and clean here.

Ginny, we saved you some scones...just pop over to Linda's . I think she has then in her pantry.l just love the roses growing all over Linda's house, don't you? 

Comment by Linda Koller on September 9, 2020 at 7:39pm

Oh quiet, Barbara!  (LOL) We cooled down to 90 and have lots of smoke from the California fires. I'm sure it's not as bad as what Mary and others are experiencing. But it's bad enough when one has respiratory problems. I have a granddaughter just north of San Francisco with asthma. We all would appreciate some cooler weather, no wind, and some rain. Please pray for Oregon, Colorado, and California.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on September 9, 2020 at 7:11pm

I really hate to tell you this Mary but our temp today in Oshkosh is 54 I had to put the furnace on tonight.
