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.

I follow "I Found a Quilted Heart" too Wilma. Once I'm caught up on some projects when I'm really sewing again, I want to make them. If I was making them now, I could leave them at PT and all the doctor offices. It's the only places I get to anymore. The only socializing I get is at the pool where I do some of my therapy. We are limited to 10 people. Quite often there are only 4 or 5 of us. I quit going to water aerobics because too many people (17) and I'm high risk.

I look forward to volunteering at the wildlife sanctuary, Riana! Well, maybe not with the black bears tho...LOL I'd love to work in the nursery! I'm sure they can use some of my kennel quilts.

Gail, our Fla group of sewers had a " zoom meeting". It's a bit like a video chat. You can see a variety of people in tiny frames, when you " select" their small video picture ,it pops up full size. I think the limit is 12 or similar. It was fun.

Comment by Riana Noyes on August 11, 2020 at 12:55pm

Mary, of course you can volunteer here in Tiny Town! There's a wildlife sanctuary near town that rescues everything from hawks to geese , ferel cats are trapped/ vaccinated/ neutered and released, and even little black bears, deer and other larger creatures. The vets all pitch in, but careworkers are needed in the nursery ( would you like to bottle feed an orphan fawn?) as well as cage / enclosure maintenance for injured birds while healing. Then there's the library outreach mobile bus for residents who are so busy sewing they have no time to get to library during regular hours. We have no need of Meals on Wheels, as everyone is healthy, and neighbours look out for the older frailer in our town.

Mary and Wilma, I'm with you on the isolation feelings.  I'm having these problems with my back as well and can't stay as busy as I would like to and that makes it worse.  I miss th socializing with people the most, volunteer groups and such.  Not much socializing at the grocery store and pharmacy and that's the only places we go.  I am so ready for this to be over with.  I told my hubby at the age I am, 81, I can't afford to give of this time in isolation.

Comment by Wilma Schirra-Kays on August 11, 2020 at 12:29pm

Yes, Mary, this isolation is very hard.  I miss being with my sewing and knitting friends and doing fun stuff for local groups.  Also miss, probably most of all, in person visits with my mom.  Hope this is over soon.

Comment by Mary Moore on August 11, 2020 at 12:26pm

Find isolation so hard, and I am missing volunteer work the most.  What opportunities will Tiny Town have for that?

Comment by Wilma Schirra-Kays on August 11, 2020 at 11:06am

Barbara, that sounds like fun.  I have been following a group Postcards 2020 on FB and Instagram.  Never heard about it, but they create fabric postcards and send out to a person each month. Some are so cute.  A put a picture below.  I also have been making hearts and following I Found A Quilted Heart group.  They make hearts from leftover fabric and leave them for people to find.  I have 60 made so far, once we can move around more, I will leave them in places for people to find.

We're glad to have you in Tiny Town, Carla! I'll mark #30 as " sold".

Comment by Riana Noyes on August 11, 2020 at 9:40am

Barbara that might be a splendid idea for the future, but will have to be put to a vote...many here are up to their necks in projects...adding more would be stressful.Let's wait. 

Comment by Barbara Hughes on August 11, 2020 at 8:37am

Wecome to the neigborhood, Carla. Your right next door. 

Comment by Barbara Hughes on August 11, 2020 at 8:33am

I had a thought that each month we could each take turns at hosting a project that we could all do and vote on the best. Like book covers, mug rugs, book markers, door know messages or maybe something like painted stones etc... Some great ideas on pinterest. Just a thought.

Comment by Wilma Schirra-Kays on August 11, 2020 at 1:18am

Oh Carla, you are just 3 doors away.  We will have to plan some innovative quilts.  I just signed up for the new Mystery Quilt ... doesn’t start until September.  Perhaps we can share a few quilting stories too.  This should be a fun neighborhood....dropped off another 50 ear savers for delivery to our local hospital.  

Barbara, isn’t it nice to have your house paid for?  Looking forward to our first big neighborhood function...a BBQ perhaps!  Also thinking I should buy a small house for my mom.  Maybe close to me.  She fell today and looks terrible, we cannot get in to see her.  Hospice nurse said she would check on her again tomorrow...we will do a window visit.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on August 10, 2020 at 6:40pm

I did my two deed of kindness. So my house is paid for. However that seems so small I think I should do two more deeds of kindness to make sure I've have fully paid my due.

Comment by carla j walton on August 10, 2020 at 11:03am

I would like to buy house number 30 if its not taken.

I will call it " The cabin of the piney woods"

Comment by carla j walton on August 10, 2020 at 11:01am

Hi Barbara, I have been hiding out like everyone else. Lol

Just decided to keep focused on my projects and trying not to get too distracted. I have been able to finish 2 or 3 quilt tops and all 7 of my neice and nephew quilts and get them delivered! 

Plus I was having major issues with my phone and this web site. It was irritating me very badly. This new phone seems to connect much better. I will post my finishes. 

Comment by Barbara Hughes on August 9, 2020 at 10:31pm

Carla where have you been? Nice to see you again. Maybe you've been on and I haven't seen you. I'm glad you haven't disappeared. Buy a house you have some fun.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on August 9, 2020 at 10:16pm

Mary you are hilarious!! Good idea, Deanna! Sure thing,Linda. I better not be the baker, it's too tempting. Melanie, I'm glad you like my house. Pretty nice I think!!

Comment by carla j walton on August 9, 2020 at 9:50pm

This looks interesting! Lol 

Comment by Riana Noyes on August 9, 2020 at 7:32pm

Mary, Tiny Town is in a very protected area. We do have 4 seasons, but not extreme weather, no droughts, bad storms, or blizzards. There's a dog park in with the " people park" ( located beyond fence on bottom front of quilt!)

Comment by Riana Noyes on August 9, 2020 at 7:28pm

Dee, the houses taken so far are...#4 , 18, 27, 31, 37, 41, 44, 47, 48, 49 ...all the rest are available at this moment. Houses are numbered from top row left to right 1 thru 7, second row left to right 8-14 and so on.  One act of random kindness buys a small house with large lot, and 2 acts buys a big 2 chimney  house. All have very large bright sewing rooms, heating, ac etc. The big ones have more storage space but smaller gardens. You don't have to report what your acts of kindness are(only if you want to), but they must be current or near future.
