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.

My eye has been hurting for ages.  Finally today, it is so sore I can't read the newspaper nor sew.  Monday I am making an appt. to see the eye Dr. and start from there.  I think I need surgery like I had on my other eye.  So nothing to report on progress.

I've put together a " baby boy" quilt with airplanes. I'll post acphoto later, my internet's on " slow" until hubby gets it fixed, sigh.

Riana, you did so well with those placemats!  They are so nice!  I have been doing a lot of sewing lately.  I have 15 6x21 sections to do for my Seeing Stars Quilt.  And I  cut the next day's sewing in the evening while we are watching T.V.  They are coming along well - I have 9 done.

My daughter has a layer of the white stuff on her farm in B.C. already.  She decided to pick the last of the tomatoes yesterday.  She received her Christmas Tree wall hanging yesterday.  Canada Post delivered the package in 8 days!

What a sweet idea for Christmas shut-ins.

Thank you for the kind words. They mean so much ! I realized one day the stress was just so much and that if I could just get some weight off then, maybe my foot would not hurt so much so that I can go for walks, or workout with my treadmill. It frightens me of what will come and I really need to be spending the time with my mom now- not in the yard. I was going to sew today, and I ended up pulling another two bags of weeds up. These have little seeds under their leaves that when they fall or you mow over them, they spread. So, I plan to hire a company to help  treat the yard, and I think I will redo the flower beds to make them easier, I might hire someone to help with that if I can afford to.


But, yes.. I must get to getting my nephews quilt done.


Wilma, You are so very right about how hard it is to get the weight off. I am now 56 years of age. What I can say that I have learned is that as we age we lose our muscle a lot faster, so it is important to do two things.. eat more protein ( this does not have to be from meat) and do weight bearing exercises. From helping my mom, I have learned how important it is to do squats and balance exercises.  When I was working out a lot more with the weights, I learned that if one does a full body workout 2-3 times a week, in 3 months you can have the muscle of a 30 year old .. the sad part about this, if we don't keep it up we lose it a lot quicker. But, I still will do it.. I just got to get back to doing it.

Kris, your mystery quilt is beautiful.  I joined a Murder Mystery Quilt a couple of years ago.  Made about 6 blocks and when it got into intense paper piecing, I put it on the back burner.  Sure glad I did.  The finished project would have ended up in the scrap heap for me.  Did not join the next year as I was afraid of another bad design.  
Zoe, sure glad you and your mom were spared.  Yes, weight loss is definitely not for faint of heart at our ages...seems post 50 the pounds do not come off easily.

Beautiful mystery quilt, Kris.

Zoe, so glad you've made it through the storm.

Kris, I love mystery quilts!  Your top is so beautiful!  Riana, in mysteries, the instructions usually include colour recipe hints so you can't can't go too wrong about where the lts. meds. and darks should go.

Hubby and I watched an old horror film called "The Ghoul" with Boris Karloff last night.  It was so entertaining, not scary at all, the acting was awful and we enjoyed it immensely.  Back to "Fun With Bricks" today.
