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.

Hey Mary, I accept full responsibility for twisting your arm LOL.  I will be right in there with you when the Tour de Sock starts....I am finishing up a KAL sock, a pair of short socks and have “Mariam” cuff done.  Maybe tonight I will start the leg.  Here is one I finished for hubby, and he loves them; and another pair for the gift box.

I confess, I've been knitting -getting ready for the tour de sock.  It is Wilma's fault, as she mentioned the contest. 6 pairs of socks in six weeks!

The picture is of the warm up socks prior to the contest beginning next month.  The mitts were made earlier of the same variegated yarn that is in the socks.  I have really tall snow boots to wear the sock inside as those colors are terrible.

Hi Riana,

Great quilts!  And your yard is a nice place to display them for us.

Wilma, I see that you are keeping very busy too.

I just sewed on the final border on one side of my Rest & Refreshing Quilt.  3 more to go!

I bought Hubby tickets to see and hear the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra when it comes to Ottawa in October.  It will be a tribute to Frank Sinatra.  Hubby loved the big band era.  That is his Father's Day gift.  This evening we are invited to my son's for dinner.

I am reading "trigger Mortis" by Anthony Horowitz in the style of Ian Fleming about James Bond.  Easy reading!

Wow, Riana.  You have been very business.  Such easy patterns for some.  Good ideas for my stash.  I have about 5 more BIG quilts to finish (3 of which are for QOV for our Veterans Club here in Sun City Anthem).  Once those are finished, and the last 2 finished are bound, I am off to smaller quilts.  Have a few ready to take to clubhouse to quilt (we have a longarm in our sewing room).  Need to get 3 of them done for upcoming baby showers (2 boys due in October and a girl in August).  You have been a busy lady.

I haven't received any notifications lately!

Belated Happy Birthday Mary! Sounds like you had a wonderful birthday. I'd take homemade apple pie over birthday cake any day.

I'll miss you too Barbara. But Indy and I love to travel...and who knows? We might end up in Wisconsin for a summer vacation sometime. Indy loves visiting you and Colin. So do I!!! Besides I want to go back to Cedarburg!

Riana, I will miss my garden. I have been taking photos as it blossoms.

Barbara, thanks for the info on hypertension. However, some of that stuff I can't eat because of intestinal problems. I do eat celery and garlic but can't on a daily basis. Onions are a huge NO NO. I've watched salt and sodium I think my whole life. Never been one for much salt anyway. When I do use salt, I use sea salt. I season foods with herbs rather than salt. I eat everything preservatives or prepackaged foods. The doctor feels the hypertension was brought on by all the stress, but is also hereditary. So far the medication doesn't seem to be helping. See the doctor tomorrow. Maybe she will switch meds. I've started listening to Indy's relaxation music that I play during thunderstorms or when I can't take him with me to keep him calm. It's helping me sleep a little better. I'm still up a lot but getting more sleep than before.

Dee, You are amazing. Can't wait to see your latest creations.

Riana and Mary, I wish I could quilt. I've done crochet but haven't done any of that for a long period of time. I didn't know it could help arthritis. Surprise!! Surpirse!! 

Thanks for all your kinds words and thoughts and prayers for my brother.

I've been working on a few ufo projects sent to me by friends. They know on completion, they'll go to charity. I'm also working thru my projects that have been in planning stages far too long. Check photos on my page.
