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.

A dear elderly friend in Milwaukee is in hospital with pneumonia and covid. They took him off oxygen today and he seems to be holding on his own. They were going to try sitting him up this afternoon.

One of my PT therapists has covid symptoms. Waiting to hear what her tests results are. My PT has been canceled until then. So far I have not had any symptoms. My doctor does not want to test me unless I have symptoms or her test results are positive.

Checkin' in on everyone on this gorgeous weekend. Getting a bit frosty here in mid-central - going to have really low temps here, flannel sheets are my savior. Have slowed down on the sewing room, cleaning and dusting and continuing the organization of the chaos.  Quilter has the last 3 and she's working on the two boy quilts that are using blankets and sheets so I can use the excess of the sheet on one for the binding on both, so my room has to be ready to trim and make binding.  I am working on mending my spring quilt that has popped stitching - then off to the laundromat to wash and dry. We all know how we avoid this stuff .. 

Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy - it seems that the numbers in my area are creeping ever higher and closer .. today my boss texted me to let me know that a referee at a HS basketball game from 2 weeks ago has shared it with the 2 teams - of course her son was a player and our manager has a son on the other team .. oh joy .. 

Stitch on ~

Riana, I'm just taking walks and visit with the fur babies along the way. Walks around here usually take an hour because of all the visiting...LOL!!

Gail, it took a pandemic to get you out of cooking the big meal...l would see that as a  silver lining( lol...can you tell l hate to cook?) Sorry you will be missing the family...l hope you can skype or facetime. 

Linda, the whole holiday season is tough on those living alone. Perhaps you can arrange to have a neighbour's dog over once in a while? Maybe you could " dogsit" while they go get groceries or keep an appointment.

Riana, that will be fun to see what you come up with with those pretty fabrics. 

Linda, I have Roku on one TV, I have not explored all it has to offer.

Happy Thanksgiving! This holiday season is hard without my Indy but God will see me thru it. I'm sure Indy will receive lots of turkey today!

Zoe, I have a Roku tv with those channels. Acorn is a paid subscription. I dropped my Hallmark subscription which is fine...I don't miss it. Pluto has a two Christmas movie channels and a romance movie channel besides 007 and British TV....all for free! Plus I can binge watch some of the older programs I love like Walker, Texas Ranger, MacGuyver, Leverage, Jag, and others.

Riana, love that turquoise fabric!

Happy Thanksgiving to eveyone and your families.  We are having a quiet one here at home, just Hubby and I.  It will be very different from what we are used to, but just to be safe and still be here to celebrate next years holidays it's what we need to do.  It does seem kind of strange since it's the first time in 60+ years that I haven't cooked a big meal with all the trimmings.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families. Have a wonderful day together.

Zoe, love those prints. I think you can use some of the ideas quilters have on pinterest for the Kaffe Fawcette prints...those are large and colourful too.

I bought some fabric 2 weeks ago, and except for fleece to back daughter's housewarming quilt, it's the first purchase since l got home from Fla. in late March! It was on sale for $5/m, and l spent less than $80. on the lot. I've sewn the entire scrap contents from bins shown in photo plus many strips from other bins, trying to take it easy on my stash of larger size pieces, which have always been somewhat limited.
