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.

Barbara, I was on the phone when I read your response and I had a hard time containing my laughter ! I know I even said that too ! Then I thought, will 2021 is not here yet, so it is okay ! lol

I will see what I have left over should anyone want some, this will be a dizzy quilt, but full of fun neat patterns that will keep me awake should I need that

Linda, so many of the stations I have not heard of, guess I need to start checking the TV out more.  

I have plans to a bunny quilt for an older friend and on this fun fabric find, I was able to get the backing for it for 1/2 off ! It is pretty with rabbits in a field.

Darn, I still have two ufo's on the board, one in the closet, and now two more new ones.. and this does not include the several kits I have in the closet it too. If we get snowed in ( Florida) then I will have lots to keep me busy !

Oh to have PBS again! However, between Pluto, Raku, Acorn tv and YouTube I still get my fix of Poirot, Agatha Christie, and Sherlock Holmes. Pluto just added British TV....yipee! Altho some of it, I'm not thrilled with. They also added 007....oh YES!! Haven't started bingeing on those

Interesting fabrics, Zoe. I haven't been on that type of fabric shopping binge in forever!

Oh, Barbara, I look at all the fabric I have and sayI NEED TO USE THIS UP BEFORE I BUY MORE, but than I decide I need another piece because I just NEED IT.  I must say that this Covid has pretty much put a stop o some of this behavior.  I have finished up a lot of smaller projects, throws, palens and table runners.  I love doing things I can do in my lap because I love to hand quilt and of course lots of bindings.

Aoe, I just love those Australian fabrics, very unusual and pretty.

I love the Aboriginal fabrics! So novel and unexpected and colorful! Any pattern that has large pieces in the blocks would be good - this woven pattern is a good one, Snowball is another. A large scale 4 patch, rail fence...lots of possiblities! I am jealous of the deal you found!

Barbara, I do take breaks and days off, I just keep trying to get things in order so that I can keep things up without too much trouble.

Today I went to the fabric store for 2 fabrics, they cost me $225.00 ! Okay, when I got there they were having 50% off of any fabric dated 2018 or earlier, 30% off of 2019... so I found these for me. Most 50% off. Australian Aboriginal fabrics.

When I got involved in the Fire Tree blocks for Australia, I saw this fabric and fell in love with them. I saw this pattern that someone else made with their stash and I might be good for one quilt. What is this pattern ?    Image   I did find the fabrics I went for, and then also got fabric for a yet to start quilt for the backing.  If you all have any other ideas on a quilt for these fabrics, let me know. I decided to buy a few more that I really love online

Score - last two quilts to the quilter yesterday, and she texted me today and one of the three is done. Now she will do boy quilt #2 as the sheet that is the back will also provide the binding for both as I got a queen sheet - I know, it's cheating, but I did finish 9 quilts. Working on binding on small table runner now.  I will have to upload pix to an album instead of inserting as they are on my phone at the moment. I need to update my album big time. 

First day back to work and I only have 3 days this week, another victory. I think I only worked 14 days this month .. not retirement, but pretty good I think  

Stitch on ~

Riana, that was a nice touch.

We are suppose to get snow/rain mix tomorrow. 

Gail, I think we will try that out one of these days.

Comment by Riana Noyes on November 23, 2020 at 5:46pm

We had a huge snowstorm! We lost internet, then power. Thankfully all back now, with  milder temps.

Barbara, those birds are thread painted. The lighthouse block is not quilted. 

Liz, l hope the owners don't mind me adding a porch on the back,lol. Who'd live in such a scenic spot and not have a place to sit outdoors? Isn't it nice to get fabric for Christmas?

Gail, on Saturday evenings we watch 2 hours of Poirot on PBS.  Then, on Sunday another 2 hours of Masterpiece Theatre on PBS.  The British have such talented character actors that we love to watch.  We haven't watched The Windsors yet.

We have about 6 inches of snow on the ground.  And it's cold here.  Hubby and I are hibernating like 2 sleepy bears.
