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.

Kris, love that quilt! When we stayed in motorhome in Tx., l tried outdoors sewing...but since we were on Mustang Is. and just yards from the gulf, the wind kept shigting my patterns and fabric pieces. One day hubby laughed as l sat with a small rock or large shell on each thing on table!

Kris, I really like your red and white quilt.  What is the name of the pattern?  It looks like a quilt I might like to try.

I did decide to take the May row of my temperature quilt apart and fix it after all. 

My son phoned me from the trailer and told me not to delete a photo ever!  I have been deleting them since I got to use a computer in the 90s.  

Barbara, my sewing room has a/c but only when Hubby decides to turn it on.

Kris it must be nice to have an aircontioned sewing room this time of year.

Oh Elizabeth, the fun is just beginning!!!

Riana and Chris, you congratulated me too soon!  Haha!  I managed to screw up again!  It is funny how an ordinary old lady like me can get up to such mischief. 

And I hate to tell you the worse part, after telling you I was using an easy pattern for my temperature quilt, I see when I sewed May and June together that I made a MAJOR mistake in the middle of May.  The temperatures are accurate but the sewing is not.  I'm not taking it apart and redoing half a month at this stage!

Linda, I've only had the computer for days and I was up in the middle of last night playing with connections on the back of it.  My son plugged in the External Hard Drive to the OneDrive and my computer was showing as full!  So I started deleting my photos and storybooks of our vacations, not realizing until a day later that I had sent the contents of my External Hard Drive (all the things I wanted to keep) to the recycle bin.  OneDrive sent me a facebook telling me I could restore the recycle bin for 30 days (how the heck did it know what I was doing?)  but now I don't which of 2 flat outliets to use to reconnect the External Hard Drive.  I also bought a book called Windows 10 for Seniors (it was meant for Seniors with the I.Q. of Einstein.)

Oh no Barbara! That is such a nice shop!

Elizabeth, I've been struggling with Windows 10 for a couple years now. Would love to go back to XP7; however, Microsoft no longer supports it. I miss my old PrintShop program. The Windows 10 version stinks and doesn't do nearly as much as the old version.

Kris, love your sewing room! Let the creative juices flow!!

This is a sad day in Wisconsin.  Nancy's Notions is closing their (Beaver Dam) doors for good.  They are having a hugh liquidation sale. The place was so crowded the check out line weaved in and out around the store. There was hardly enough room to shop. We decided to go home. It would have taken an hour or more just to go throught the check out. So far we can still order on line. I really enjoyed that shop. One good thing,  I was able to get the phone# of the Baby Lock repair man, for future use. This first day of the sale was only 30% off. Not the best sale ever.

Elizabeth, sounds like you are all set. My old laptop which was our primary use also needs to remain plugged in, or it starts getting alzheimers...hubby has replaced with new. But l know how old one works, even though slow , so l now get to keep it all to myself for embroidery files. I don't use embroidery machine often, but l like having it available when l need it especially for labels.l use my tablet daily for it's camera.
