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.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on Sunday

How long have you been without power now, Mary?  Is it to prevent forest fires?

We see the awful damage the forest fires and high winds are doing in Southern California on the news.  It is so sad to see people being interviewed who have been left with nothing.

The restoration times posted on the PG&E outage maps were generated by their system automatically and do not reflect reality.

The above is a quote about the electric company that turned most of Northern Calif. off from Wed. night thru Sat. Noon.

Happy Thanksgiving belatedly.

Happy Thanksgiving to you Canadian Gals!

Elizabeth, both the Kitty quilt and  the Prints Charming quilt are wonderful! Is the Charming quilt the Arkansas Crossroads pattern? Your colors are just lovely together and the Kitties are very pettable! Love the quilting on the frames! 

Riana, you look  "Just Fabulous, Dahling!" in your fascinator! Please explain what the long dark thing is...a feather?

Hubby and I had a delicious feast of ham, pineapple. mashed potatoes and salad at my son's place yesterday.  Vegans had vegan "turkey" and gravy and vegan potatoes.  We had 4 berry pie for dessert.

Riana, we have a pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room in our condo.  I've only used the sauna once but everything else I use frequently.  I don't like saunas because of that scene in James Bond where someone gets fried in one.  Hubby only uses the exercise room because he does not like to get wet. LOL

Jim wants me to use superheroes fabric in his friends' baby quilt.  I guess I could for the backing.

Elizabeth, hope all goes well with birth of your friend's ggrandson. Your gift will be much appreciated, l'm sure. And a pool? You never mentioned your building has one...lucky you ( l take it that's indoors, lol, considering our climate).

Beth, so soon all of your children will be married? And l'm chuckling when you think that your life will be your own afterwards...because soon there will be grandchildren! After that, anything goes...they'll have 1 800 GRANDMA set in the speed dial on their phones!

Today I prepared batting for a throw size |Autumn quilt that I'd like to sandwich this coming week.  I also sewed a backing for a quilt panel 36 x 42 for a baby quilt.  I exercised in the pool this morning and got ready to go to my son and Daughter-in-law's for Thanksgiving. We're leaving around 3:00 P.M.

Hi Beth!  Nice to hear from you.  This baby boy quilt is for the great grandson of my friend, Deanna.  She helps me so much when I sandwich my quilts that I offered to make this quilt when I saw that her grand daughter was pregnant.

well howdy ladies.  a little bird told me about the quest going on here.  I like the idea of earning a PHD.  would that be able to be put on a resume? LOL Not sure what you really want me to decide on.  Points are used in judging, but don't apply to size.  Maybe I could join in this.  I still have a few to be finished.  Right now I am working on one more wedding to be done.  We do flowers on Sunday.  Daughter found a dress to wear so won't be making another wedding dress.  I do have two wedding quilts to geet done.  One for the wedding that just happened and one for the wedding quilt coming up.  After that, my life is free to enjoy what I want to do.  Could you believe I have not made a quilt since June.

Most fully packed freezers keep food 2 or 3 days if one doesn't peek. A simple test...before power goes off, put ice cubes in a sandwich bag in freezer. After outage is over, check the bag...if ice is NOT in cubes, chances are great that food is no longer safe. If cubes still , all should be fine. When we lived " up north", l always kept a bag of frozen cubes in our power outages were common, and my freezer often half empty.
