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.

I really love going up to my sewing room. It's quiet and peaceful and I turn on some good music or listen to the radio. I just don't get up there enough. To many things keep calling.

Beth, you give us the strength an encouragement to continue.  If you can do it, we all can :) 

Working on elephant tonight, outlining Cooper and his date of birth .. slow and steady. Then I will pick a design to float up from top to bottom to anchor the sandwich .. something easy but maybe not FMQ .. must get a slider I think...

And back to it :)

Ah shucks Barbara, thanks.  It is totally a God thing in my opinion.  I do have that QPAD (OCD according to doctors) that I use quilting to deal with it.  Hubby sometimes can't cope, but heck it keeps me out of bad places both physically and mentally. LOL  It is what I do.  I figure once I get these done, I can than do my kits which are not cut up and not started at all, just waiting there for me.  Plus I have all those scraps to work with, I am definitely good for a few years yet on not buying lots of new stuff.  Good thing I have a job, how many I could get done then.

Barbara, It is not just the machine.  You pick the best fabrics and shapes for the designs.
