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.

Riana, I have the same cart in my sewing room, but I use it for the iron and starch and basting spray, water spray bottles etc... It's pretty handy. I got mine from Sam's club.

Riana, I am so sorry thar you and hubby are under the weather, but you still managed to get something done.  Getting scraps under control is really a major project.  Love the cart and it's so great to get such a good deal.  I love it when something is a BOGO and I have a coupon for 2 and it's senior day.  I do love a really good bargain.  My Grand daughters tell every one "Grandmas favorite word that starts with C is clearance."

Elizabeth it sounds like you're really rolling right along.  You seem to get a lot finished, well, compared to me any way.  I keep reminding myself that "finished is better than perfect".  

Linda you're ahead of me,  I still have a lot of empty walls.  My Daughter is a designer and she really intimidates me.  She put things up in my kitchen and dining room and they both look great.  I'm having trouble deciding where I want things.  I have boxes of "stuff" and can't make up my mind, that's one of my UFOs for this week.  I hope that counts.

So sorry that you and your Hubby are sick.  I started working on the sashing and cornerstones of a Sampler Quilt when I got my batting ready.

Hubby & l both down with a nasty bug :-(( l can't concentrate for long, and my head hurts too much to stand the sounds of midarm/ hopper foot. So yesterday and today l've been working quietly, organizing my scraps , strips in the sunroom where l use my design board ( the light's fantastic here!) My larger pieces remain in the sewing cupboard, along with ufo projects l've bagged in ziplocks.Got the cart on sale 1/2 price less 20% off ( senior's day). Sew handy!

Today's the day to get the batting ready and I'll do a little work before like Riana suggested.

Riana that is the most sound advise i have ever "heard" considering your own UFO fabric as free fabric. I love that. Seems like many of us have finish up goals for 2019. Even reading all of you girls comments about finishing up is encouraging. So keep up the posting!

Thank you all for your advise. As soon as I get the house settled in, I will get started. I have 2 projects sitting by my machine....a round robin to complete and fabric I just bought to recover the cushion and arms of my armchair and pillows on my sofa. As I was unpacking the last of the boxes, I found more sewing things that need putting away. I've finally hung all my quilts and now hanging artwork and photos. It's beginning to look like home.
