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.

Today l finished quilting Tiny Town, and am busy binding it. Next l finished piecing top of a ufo project Liz sent me. This is a nice pattern for novelty prints. I'll be doing variations on it later. Here's the top...thinking about backing.

Thank you Ginny  !

the numbers for the Ferritin was 6 years back when I found out I have celiac, it has since gone back up and gotten normal, but  the last time the doctor ran it, it seemed like it was going low again. I just don't want to overdue it on iron if not needed. Thank you for the concerned. I ran B12 too, just to be sure.

Zoe, Here is a pattern for the Attic Window pattern-just don't split up your panel and do it all in the large size.

Do you take a iron supplement or eat more iron rich foods? That # is awfully low. I would definitely keep an eye on it.

Can anyone advise me on a pattern for a picture window. I don't want the small blocks. The fabric I got for my mom's room. The panel is about 44" wide and 22" long. So the picture is more or less like a panoramic.  I have never done one.

I had best spend my time working on the nephews quilt.. wedding is now set Sept 26th. Time to keep the midnight oil going and stop working in the yard.  We had had 4 bushes pulled out and I will be putting in 3 white crape Myrtles that will go behind some coral pink azaleas in the front yard. But, now some plants that are in the back yard are not located right.  Some decisions have to done right away so we don't lose the plants.

The dog that lost the 5 teeth is doing well, and the other one is doing okay, it will take some time to figure out the best pain medications for him. 

I am not keeping up with the conversations as I should. I have been very tired lately and not sure if it is just the heat. I decided to go run some labs today. I told one of my mom's doctor's about ordering labs online, she had no clue but wanted the information. About 6 years back I had discovered my ferritin was at 13, it should have been close to 65. So, I decided to run that again just to see.  But my mom keeps the home warm too and that might be the issue.

I am now busy quilting Tiny Town and have begun 2 new easy cute baby quilt that Liz supplied pattern & pieces for ( she didn't want me twiddling my thumbs!), and a more challenging one l'm putting together for a lovely lady who does a great deal for her church. Sadly, she had to curtail her monthly visits due covid and mobility problems. She always was driven by a nice young woman ,as she's too old to drive safely herself. l'm keeping out of mischief as much as possible. :-))

Riana, thank you for sharing your memories with us, especially your MIL and your FIL.  How lovely that they had such fulfilling long lives.  My sympathy to Dave on the loss of his mother.

You sparked my memory too.  I remember having a wooden frame for hand quilting individual blocks too and the seam allowance was 1/2" where we left off quilting so we could QAYG.

Glad that you are back, Deanna.  The baby quilt that you showed us in progress is looking very nice - such soothing colours!

Riana, here in Ottawa everything was closed yesterday except the grocery stores.  Today I have to go out to buy Doug a battery for his watch and we have a contribution to drop off at Value Village - all our clothes that are too big for us.

Riana, Tiny Town it is!! It fits just fine.

Dee, I meant "hear" how you are getting along.

I have been missing out !

Riana #4 for me, as we painted our home green. For over 30 years the home was brown and looked like a hunted home. When we painted it green and white, the neighbors just raved ! One even said, " you added a second story too". I had to laugh and said, nope, you just could not see it with the trees and all the brown.  Two acts of kindness... easy to do, that is in my genes.
