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.

Liz, l think you should also call your reg. doctor. The eye problem may be a symptom of something else...please don't leave it any longer. I don't blame you for avoiding emerg. It's wonderful that you had some relief today.

It hasn't snowed here yet either, Barbara.  My daughter's property in B.C. has been a Winter Wonderland.  She is further north and at a higher elevation.

My eye is a little better today.  So I sewed this morning.  All 15 of the 6x21 sections of Seeing Stars are done.  And I worked on sewing scraps into 12" scrappy squares.  (I may end up with more backs and tops).  And I'm back to sewing the rows of Fun With Bricks together.

I watched the episode of Poirot's last case on T.V. last night in which Poirot dies.  It was so poignant and sad.

Riana is right about our autumn having lots of colour.  I heard the weatherman say that the temperatures at night have been perfect for bringing out a lot of red in the leaves.

My son wants to take me to emergency for my eye today, but I would like to put it off until I try to get an appt. tomorrow.  I'm really scared to go to emergency because of the covid and because I would go crazy waiting there for hours and hours.

No Barbara, we're enjoying bright sunny autumn with lots of colour...but it's only 58°f.

Liz, Hope your eye will recover quickly.  Prayers.

Riana, great airplane quilt.

Snow was on the radar but it passed us up and went north. I am supposing you Canadians have it by now.

Very nice, Riana.  I've slept the day away while resting my eyes, but needed to get on here for a little while.  Funny we want to do what we can't do.

I've had the pattern for the little pieced + a bit of applique airplane for a long , long time...just never got around to making it. But when l saw it again in my older magazine when straightening my " sewing" bookcase, l decided now is the time. Blocks are only 7" fin., so needed a big border. Pinterest to the rescue! The top now is 42" sq. and l've made a partially pieced back for it. Got it on the frame today.

So sorry to hear that Elizabeth. I hope it won't take too long. My hubby's been waiting for joint specialist appointment for 4 mo. But there's only one in Eastern Ont., and he can't schedule " elective" surgery while covid protocols in place in Kingston area. Your situation seems more of an emergency.

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!
