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.

No Liz, I just have the pattern. But they are such cute little doggies.

Love the winter quilt, Riana. You do lovely work all the time.

Riana, your primitive winter quilt is lovely!  Barbara, did your pattern come with fabric too for the dogs?  I love doggie quilts!

Riana, I made a lighthouse quilt a long time ago.  Ann Bird, the famous Canadian quilter gave a course on how to translate a picture to a grid and do colour wash and then cut out and machine applique.  Sounds strange but it really worked, however, I never pursued the technique again.  Now, last Fall, I bought a lighthouse panel at Fabricland and it is waiting for borders to make it bigger.

Welcome RA! We talk about ufos and a lot of other topics! We encourage each other when someone's project has them " stuck"

Remember my primitive winter quilt l was working on? I finished the borders!

Hey Linda, Guess what??? I was just looking through a box of patterns and I have: drum roll................. The Whole Country Caboodle of Gone to the Dogs. But it doesn't have the dog that looks like Indy but there is a little dog that is similar. Hurray!! It makes a 35 X 35 Wall Hanging. With 6 dogs on it.

I've finished quilting the top my granddaughter made, and tomorrow l'll be starting my lighthouse applique. I bought that pattern 5 yr ago on a trip to the east coast. Not sure l know what l'll do with it, but leaning toward door hanging or wall quilt.

Well, I guess, Linda, Drs. Liz and Riana weren't too helpful!  But we do have good bedside manners! LOL  Take care, Linda, we don't want to hear that you are under the weather.

I don't put salt in my diet, Liz. Haven't for years. The only sodium I get is from what few prepackaged foods I eat. Most of my food is natural. I do get some sodium intake from meds I've learned. Just had labwork and my sodium levels were excellent! Actually the kidney doctor said all my labs were excellent and my kidney function is improving. I only cheat on the diet the week after the labwork and I don't really cheat that much. Can't remember the last time I had chocolate!! This time I had 4 french fries...not an order...4 fries and a cheeseburger with mayo.

My edema is a result of the car accident. I had a blood clot in the left abdominal aorta and have neuropathy in my feet also from the accident. I haven't been able to wear my compression hose since the back surgery because I can't bend to get them on. I wear the 20-30 compression which are very difficult to get on. I had to go out and get a pair of 15-20 compression and order some online to get me thru this episode until I can bend properly to get the others on. I  had difficulty getting the lighter ones on.

Received a notice we have a new UFO name, just ra57. Welcome whoever you are!!

Thanks for sharing, Ginny. Take care, Linda.

Riana, my mom too had bad edema in her ankles and it was diagnosed as poor circulation of the blood that could lead to congestive heart failure.  I'm sure that Linda will tell her Dr. about it.  Then, again it could be something related to her salt intake.  I once had very swollen ankles when I was at a quilt conference and my friend was a nurse and she told me the institutional food we were eating was too salty and I was walking lots too lugging around my sewing machine across a big campus.  My friend told me to rest lots with my legs elevated on a pillow and watch what I was eating in the cafeteria.  And I was O.K.  in a couple of days.
