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.

Riana, I'm sure that the people who receive these beautiful quilts will be proud to have them.

Since the atari came out in the 80's. I've given up on all the changes in technology. I can't keep up with it.

Beautiful quilts, Riana.

Love the basket quilt especially, Riana.

Comment by Riana Noyes on Monday

The latest 3 nursing home quilts. The orange is using some exotic prints l brought home from Fla. At the center, l used 4 pp crescents someone gave me that were left over from a quilt they'd made...l got out my pineapple octagon ruler to add a center. The redbird one is also a wheelchair lap quilt made of donated larger scraps plus some of my own strips. The basket quilt is made of 6 orphan blocks and clamshell fabric donated for use. I again added scraps to blend...l enjoy finding ways to use odd leftovers.Backings for these are flannel. The orange has bright orange l bought for $2 m and had to wash many times to stop bleed. The others have pieces of flannel that were donated ( l 'm finding ways to arrange in larger blocks/ strips).

Linda, I am getting a webcam for my desktop on Tuesday.  My son is going to install it and teach me how to use it.  I am so looking forward to talking to some friends and family.

The photo of the person who is talking automatically enlarges, Riana. Since I  have to use my iphone, I do not see everyone only the one talking. I need to get a new webcam so I can use my computer again. Using my iphone makes it harder to read lips.

Linda, maybe you can find someone who would do just those basic tasks you find difficult in exchange for preparing/freezing  some meals for them to take home?  Try posting on the community bulletin board at the grocery store. 

At Zoom meetings, I'm wondering how you can all find/ focus on who is speaking when having an overall discussion between you. I know there are little windows showing participants... do you " select" the one you want enlarged?

Wilma, our Bible study group does zoom meetings every Monday morning for those who don't feel comfortable meeting in person. We've been meeting on zoom since covid started. We also do a "Jesus Calling" devotional 2x a week via zoom. I think it would be great for us to get together once in a while on zoom. You get the first 40 minutes free. Our Bible study takes more than 40 minutes. We get cut off at the 40 minute mark. We all just sign back in and get another 40 minutes free!

I've had a cleaning lady while recovering from my back surgery. However, her husband passed away and she just sold her house. So I'm back to cleaning my own house again. I'm just taking it very slow. The hardest part for me is cleaning the bathrooms and floors. I struggled the other day tucking the sheets and blankets in at the foot of the bed when I put clean bedding on. Didn't do much the rest of the day.

Linda, I am glad you are getting your puppy soon.

For others thinking about moving or not moving to be closer to your kids, it is a hard decision. Most of you know after my mom's husband died, I sold my home in two months and moved 3 states over and in with her to help her. At the time she was walking out front and driving. After the first fall, or maybe the 5th fall.. not sure, but she is not driving anymore.. mostly due to her not being able to get her walker out of the car, she does miss driving. Sometimes it is hard, many of you took care of your parents and you know the work and do not want to be a burden to your children, but the fact is that they want to spend time with you, they want more memories. I will say having your own place still can be very nice, but you might consider both you and your child of buying a place that you both can enjoy.  I am just giving my perspective.
