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.

I am loving all of the different houses everyone has made. So cute! 

I am so glad to hear that you are having some good family time with your kids, Elizabeth. 

Looking forward to seeing your newest creation, Barbara!

Riana - same thing here.  Grandkids are learning to make quilts, neither daughter does any kind of handwork though I tried to teach them knitting, crochet, sewing and quilting, and embroidery.  

Waiting until the Arizona grandkids grow up a bit to see if any of them (5 boys and 1 girl) are interested in learning.

Zoe - the post office says my blocks should reach you on Saturday, but that doesn't factor in the bad weather currently happening between here and there.

Barbara - I can see 9 patches and houses going together.  Can't wait to see what you make of them.

Elizabeth - my son in law recently bought some salmon which none of them had ever eaten or cooked.  I fixed it with an oriental style sauce and they tried it.  They both like oriental style foods but my daughter quit after one bite of the salmon.  Son in law ate all of his, but said it wasn't his favorite and he didn't think he'd be buying it again.  I took the leftovers home with me and enjoyed every bite!

Barbara, isn't it wonderful when serendipity alights from somewhere and inspiration hits!? Save the result for your midarm's return :-))

Liz, l think some talents must skip a generation, lol. My mom could bake the most wonderful bread, and so can my dd...but neither ever cared to sew a stitch. I had to wait for grandgirls for that gene to resurface,lol.

I was working on a 9 patch quilt and happened to lay one of my houses next to the 9 patch and the colors matched beautifully. I decided this 9 patch would look nice with 5 of these house blocks added to the quilt. The 9 patches make a 14 1/2 in block. So this house block will fit in perfectly. Thanks for the pattern, Ginny.

Hi Zoe, Jail Island Salmon is Japanese, I believe.  It was a frozen salmon, but Suzalie cooked it to perfection.

Jim and Lisa visited last night even though the roads were not cleared well.  We had Jim's lasagna with seven different cheeses and his secret spices, including fennel seed.  He looked at several cooking shows on UTube and then made his own recipe.  Looks like both of my kids are excellent cooks, what happened to me?

Thank you Linda !

I know the weather is not being kind for so many, no rush on any ones part. I will try to make a list of all that are on the way, just so I can plan out the design.

You all just be safe. Many of my friends in Texas have no heat, 3 days for some.

I finally got to the post office today just as it was closing, Zoe.

Kris, I love your blocks and it is fine not to have hearts on the blocks, I agree it is fun to have different looks. It is going to be fun figuring how to put these all in to the quilt. I am excited !!
