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.

I had  3 Kenmore sewing machines and I think I had one that ressembles the one you will be working on.  I know you are familiar with cleaning and oiling a machine so you should get this one working well.  I really like the Sweet Surrender Quilt!    I am not buying a new project or starting one -  I can always start one of my own with my fabrics on hand if the urge really gets to me.  But I am content working on my UFOs.

OMG, what a gorgeous quilt, Riana! I'm sure your rendition will be beautiful!!!

Liz, Sweet surrender is triangles of patchwork divided by triangles of applique.Here is the picture. I won't have a pattern, but can do a convincing version , l'm sure.

This is the machine my dd's friend kindly lent us...old school, but still works. Just needed oil after a 5 yr. retirement.'60's Kenmore.

Riana, what does the Sweet Surrender Quilt look like?  I am going to try and sandwich my two wheelchair quilts today.  I have at least 5 tops handing in my closet.  The wheelchair quilts are the easiest because I need just a little over a yard to back them.

Yesterday my son and DIL had dinner with me.  They brought Swiss Chalet - the dinner for 4 so I have enough for tonight too.  They told me how proud they were of all I have accomplished - all the things I am doing independently and enumerated them.  I felt so good!  Such a nice feeling when your family acknowledges your progress.  I really got a lot out of my grief support group yesterday.  The other 3 participants were really nice people and had gone through such difficult times with the terminal illness and death of their spouses.  I shed a few tears just listening.  There were 2 volunteers and the moderator.  The volunteers were people, one young and one younger than I am, who were so helpful at summarizing what we were going through.  I really recommend to those of you  who  are going through the illness and passing of a loved one to reach out for group support.  It is more effective than one on one grief counselling.

I may get to borrow a sewing machine from my daughter's friend! Today l cut out a top and skirt to make for grandd after we pick it up. Then l ordered some pieces of fabric so l can start a quilt while here.,lt'll be applique hand work so l can do it evenings. When l get home, l'll make the patchwork sections. The design l chose will be my version of the " sweet surrender" quilt.

Riana, he couldn't jump to the top of the railing.  It is round and I don't give him much leash.  I watch for him to try and squeeze under it.  I don't think his body would get through.  He's a full grown cat and quite heavy when I pick him up.

Glad you got the harness, Liz. You still must be vigilant if the leash reaches long enough for him to jump to top of railing. There may be some tangling around chair legs until he learns which way to " unwind " it himself, :-)) Snowball knows, but Jackie will never figure it out,lol.

Linda, I got Macska a harness and leash yesterday but the harness was too small so I took it back and got one for a small dog and it fits nicely.  We sat out on the balcony today together.  I feel so much safer that he won't jump this way.  While I was writing this, Macska jumped into my lap and wanted to be cuddled so I had to stop until he heard a dog outside and ran to look.  Now I'll go back to my quilting.
