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.

Does anyone know how to choose a file for posting a pic. For some reason I can't post a pic. It tells me I have to choose a file. How do I choose a file?? I don't know why this is happening. I've posted pics many times. When I click on choose a file nothing happens.

Linda, thank you.  My mom said I am " unusual" I think much of it is because my best friend was murdered when I was 14, My grand dad died when I was 15 my dad died when I was 17, and five more people died when I was in my teens.  So, I am here right now- if I can do something to help someone- I will.  Mary, I am not real close to my Ex SIL, but the young girl ( 20) means much to my niece, and as I stated before, since she lost her own mom, I think it is important to help her as I would my own niece. My younger niece and I made her quilt together, so if she recalls what we did she can help her. I did send her a sewing book and a " How to quilt" book.  Everything I got her was purple !  Thank you all. I did not tell my mom ( whom I live with now ) She would just not understand- I am not sure I do, but I just felt a calling to do this.

Zoe, It sounds like you are still close to your sister in law also, which is really nice.  How neat you are an aunt again.  Maybe the two nieces can work on the quilt kit together.

Zoe, from personal experience, I know you to be one of the most generous people I have ever known.

Oops, I meant " Love of quilting" no Low

Ladies I went broke today. My ex sister in law married a man with a daughter who is now 20. Her mom died a few years back, I think from Brest cancer. I realized that my youngest niece is close to her and has accepted her as a sister. Each of my nieces I have given a sewing machine- so 3 of them- only the youngest one will sew some. I tried. So, I bought this young lady a sewing machine and everything she needs, and I just happened to have a quilt kit that I had bought to make for someone else, but decided not to later... and will I hope I can pass on the low of quilting, sewing, or fun.

First snow last night.  I can't believe how relaxed I feel now that the fire season is over till Spring.

I am almost caught up with the Murder Mystery BOM, last block posting on the second Wednesday.  It was so fun until Facebook wouldn't let me play anymore in the discussion group(I chose not to give them my cell phone number).  I hope this year to work on original designs and not get hooked by the fun BOMs.  I'm thinking of black silhouettes on the last of my snow dyed fabrics.

I need to make sleeves for the bottoms of all the tapestries so they will hang better.

Thank you Riana and Linda,

I will have to send the quilt with instructions and hope that the guy will follow my advice. If noting else, I can get a friend to pick up two dowel rods and drop those off at his home.

Riana, that is a lovely quilt.  All mine are hand quilted, thus the long line of tops hanging in the closet.  Finally signed lease today for new apartment, can't wait to get in there. It will probably be tuesday since Hubby has appointment with eye doctor on Monday, a consultation for cataract surgery.  We will try to get our kitchen stuff moved tomorrow and some clothes and things we can just carry in the car.  I'm so far behind on my Christmas sewing, I'll be living on sandwiches and chocolate in my sewing room until late Christmas Eve.  It wouldn't e the first time a binding was going on at midnight on  Christmas Eve.
