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.

This is our WONDERFUL new quilting room at the main clubhouse at Water Oak  in Lady Lake Fla. The clubhouse was closed for renovation for 2 seasons,( satelite clubhouse with single craftroom for all was pressed into overtime ). But when it was done, it sure was worth the wait! Foreground table ( 104" long x 48" wide ) has a green cuttingmat on entire top , complete with grids. Second table is covered with a type of bulletin board material, and is usec for pin basting & sandwiching quilts. Little one at far end is " planning" table. All have cupboards & drawers. Drawers have dividers for fabric strops, rulers etc. Along one wall are hanging racks w/ dowels and a small designboard ( for teaching demos), and on opposite wall is a bulletinboard encased in glass. There's also a roomy closet with shelves for our stash, ironingboard, machines etc. Now you all know why l love it here!

Linda, bacchi ball is a bit like lawn bowling, only on astro turf, so coursts are narrow or have narrow lanes. Pickleball is a bit like tennis, only the ball is weird ( bumps like pickles) and the rackets look more like pingpong paddles. Court is similar to tennis ,with net, but much shorter ( so less running).

We have I think a place to live.  It is a two bedroom handicap access apartment in a lovely area.  We will know in a day or two and will be able to move in next week if everything goes as we hope.  We were very fortunate to be able to salvage almost every thing of importance to us.  We had experienced hurricanes before and thought we had seen massive damage, but, this was the gran daddy of them  all put together.   All our family in Florida are safe, most of them relocating to Virginia or Jacksonville.

Linda, I was so glad to see that you made it okay.  It looks like a really lovely place.  Indy looked like he had a big smile on his face.

Wilma you are so right about the bureaucracy.  Renters insurance disallows so much it is crazy and fema won't pay until the insurance does because they won't pay foranything the insurance has already paid for.  The management company that manage our apartments are in an area well out of the hurricane area are "proccessing" everything about security refunds and the balance of the pro rated  rent amount since the day of the "event"      They said it takes about 3 weeks.  I asked them 3 weeks from when, today, the day of the "event" or somewhere in between.  No one seems to know the answer, but, it takes 3 weeks from some time. We're just so much luckier than a lot of people. I  shouldn't be griping!!!

How exciting Mary! I'm sure if there is to be a documentary and book, a secure future will be found.

Gail, glad you are settling in and taking time to find a place.  Imagine the "waiting" for bureaucracy to work can be a pain.  

Linda, place looks wonderful.  We are in Sun City Anthem in NV (also a 55+ community).  It is nice having lots of activities to keep our minds and bodies moving.

Linda, Lovely pictures of the desert landscape.

Good news is coming slowly Gail.  Maybe there is a perfect place that isn't available yet.

Spent all of today with my buddy Marsha being interviewed and filmed by two Art Professors from the Art School in Oakland.  I knew the fabric arts woman was the real thing when she spotted a stray basting thread we hadn't clipped yet on the very first tapestry.  It was fun to see all 8 of the finished ones out on display, and the color cartoons of the last four that we are still working on.  I have no voice left.  There may be a documentary and a book about the if we find it a secure future??

They tell me that is a pickleball court. Is that the same as bocchi ball? There is horseshoes next to it. The swimming pool is over behind it. There is a shuffleboard court on the other side of the pool too. Inside the clubhouse is a billiard room, library, craft room, large hall, conference rooms, plus the offices. There are also a couple picnic pavilions too. Beautiful facilities.

Yes, Ginny, different climate than the Midwest!!!!!!! We are loving it!!!

Elizabeth, haven't gone up the "A" mountain yet but go past it quite a lot. We are in the Tucson mountain range and Saguaro forest by the Saguaro National Monument. The western restaurant with the staged gunfights was probably at the Old Tucson movie studios which are right around the corner from me.

Gail good to hear you are getting on with life and Fema, life insurance, etc. is coming thru for you. I'm so glad you have family to help out. Were you able to salvage much? Please, please let us know if you need fabric or anything else. I'm sure we can all pitch in. You continue to be in my prayers.
