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.

@Beth  No I don't think you are hogging it.  I thought that was what this was for.  I really enjoy seeing everyone's accomplishments,

Here is my other accomplishment just a few minutes ago.  i know, I am a busy body on this wall.  If I am hogging all the space, let me know.  I just get excited about finishing things because I will be meeting my goal.  I have two more WIP for this UFO for 10 finished for month. Ahhh, the system is working. Now back to work till lunch.  I do have a couple of things to do.  Oh darn.

You have done a marvelous job Lois. I know you are really going to enjoy sewing in there after you get better. Have a wonderful visit with your girlfriend. So glad you have someone to come and stay with you.

Thanks Rebecca.  It doesn't alway look this organized. I put everything up because I am having knee replacement surgery next week and I'm not going to be working in it for awhile. Also, my girlfriend from VA who is also a quilter is coming to help me out while I am recuperating.  For so many years I have had all my stuff in so many places and always having to search for what I wanted.  I live alone so was able to dedicate this room for sewing only.  Now that I am retired I wanted everything organized so I could enjoy my quilting better.  I am also making items to sell at craft shows.   I couldn't afford finished furniture so bought everything in boxes and put them together.

Lois, your sewing/quilting room is so organized.  I should hire you to come and help me with mine.

Beth, like your Kleenex cabin, but agree the roof could be sturdier and the chimney needs something, but so cute. I can hardly wait to see the next one you make.

Comment by Beth A. North on February 29, 2012 at 11:09am

I finished my kleenex cabin, but do not like it that much.  i followed the pattern but as you can see, it needs some major adjustments.  I think on the roof eaves, I am going to put in some pentex to make it sturdier than the batting it says and then I am going to take off the chimney and sew it at an angle so is in proportion with the roof.  i think they should have you use pentex in the roof as well instead of batting.  it is my first one so the next will be better I am sure.  I still have some leftovers so I can change it and i just may so it does not bother me.  I bought this so many years ago and now I know why I did not want to finish it, vague instructions.

I appreciated everyones kind comments.  I will post pictures after I recuperate from my knee surgery and can get around better to hang them to photograph.  I am enjoying reading everyones posts on the group.
