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.

Sorry, don't know how that picture showed up twice.  The town of Celina is full of old fashioned buildings  I'd love to live in this one.

Linda!  I found your quilt shop!

There is another one in town a couple blocks away.  Sew and So fixes and sells machines, and has a lot of notions.  Quilterie has fabric, books and patterns, and offers long arm service.  

These are both in the town of Celina, OH, which is full of old fash...

Kris, I finished "The Ghost Tree" and started "House of Shadows" by Nicola Cornick.  I haven't read any of her books and just barely started.  I am making a chapter summary because it has started to jump around in time from 1662 to1596, then another time in the Prologue and first 2 chapters.

Thank you everyone!  I'm glad that you liked the quilt.  Hubby doesn't like navy and green together.

Linda, I like your checkerboard little quilt.  Really nice for your grandchildren's visit.

I had a lot of those HSTs leftover from 2 quilts  where you make 2 sewing lines 1/2" apart and have smaller HSTs as a bonus.  I have enough, I think, for a quilt.  I have been trimming them to 2 1/2" HSTs and sewing Georgia Barns blocks.

I want a tiny house to clean and a big storage container for our stuff.

I love those tiny homes although I don't think I could survive in one. lol!! I'm sure your family was blessed by your coming. And Moms are always blessed by being able to bless them.

I am sad that we missed an opportunity to meet, Mary, BUT if it happened once, maybe it will happen again! I would love that! Laughing Yoga?! Rock Skipping?! This camp sounds like it was a really good time! It's been years since I square danced! 

I had lots of Gramma time with my DD boys. The older one is 6 already! Where did the time go? The new little guy is such a little peanut and so adorable!

Spent a few days with my 2nd son, too, and we worked on his house a bit, making it more homey. Minot had a devastating flood in 2011 and he lost everything. He purchased a Fema mobile home, which is literally a "tiny house" and we have slowly been working to make it more efficient and comfortable for's a process but he is so proud of his home.

What a bummer, Mary. So close and yet so far. Ginny and Beth would have loved it, I'm sure. The camp sounded like lots of fun for everyone. I'd like to see you do the laughing Yoga!!  and the drumming. LOL!!

Paul was teaching square dance at a camp for leaders of recreation who can't afford corporate type leadership conferences. There were the expected workshops of fundraising to people managing and sample activities to do.  I helped Paul with his and also took Drumming, Laughter Yoga, Spanish Immersion, and Rock Skipping.  MY assigned group also did Flag raising, dining room, and a night time program like in a proper camp.  It was such a safe and happy bunch of people. There was a quilt class going that I avoided as she seemed to be a "one way to do things" sort of teacher.

On the way home we stayed in a 2 star motel, shabby but clean.  I was so tickled to see a giant brown 70's log cabin quilt on our bed (washed almost to death) but so comfy to sleep under.

I confess we passed thru Ginny and Beth territory and I couldn't remember my password for here to try to meet in person.

Elizabeth, there is a waiting list for The Ghost Tree, so I checked out Sleeper's Castle by Erskine.  So far I like it a lot.  

Riana, your orphan quilts are the best!  Love how you always manage to tie everything together.  

Linda, I am in central western Ohio, not far over the border from Indiana, and didn't know anything of the earthquakes.  We had some flooding here at Hecht's Landing, but all is well now.  

So far I have pieced and quilted two pillow tops, just need to put the pillow back on them.  I have 6 of 10 rows done on a new quilt called Square Dance.  I've done over half of the applique on 6 blocks for a baby quilt, and I made the last strip for my French Braid quilt.  I love being retired, and love being on the road in an RV.  So much less housework!!!!
