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.

Liz, maybe you'll find that expensive batik you lost track of! I really, really, could never even imagine starting over 30 quilts! Well, yes l could, but l'd have 3 in the works, and finish then finished...times 10! ha ha. You must be planning to live a long long time...hope you do!

Gail, I'm going to keep taking the inventory.  I started thinking about doing it when Riana said to do the oldest projects.  But I think I may find some projects that I want to give a priority to.  I have another Joann BOM that I bought and haven't started it at all.  Who knows where it is?

Sometimes I think that we are funny old ladies, Gail.  Good that we are still able to remember and still able to laugh.

Rian and Liz, I'm enjoying your trips down Memory Lane.  You both have made me think of some of my favorite places from long ago.  Love the Chapel, so pretty.

Riana, I have so many memories of the annual school picnic at Springbank park near the pavillion in case of rain, the wading pool which I loved, the little train, then, Storybook Gardens where I visited with my family when we had company with little kids, and rolling around in the leaves with my own kids in the Park in the Autumn.  In my late teens I remember going to Wonderland on dates to dance with a live orchestra. I think that I fell in love there. It was such a romantic place in the evening.  I don't remember the seal, though.  LOL

Liz, l used to go on my bike as l lived in Byron on Boler Rd. and Springbank Park had a shortcut to Wonderland Gardens. That bike path went right past Storybook. ( l even remember it getting built . Do you remember their famous seal that escaped up the Thames? I used to wish l could swim with her & her mate in that lovely big pool! I had a season's pass for the pool at Wonderland every a present for a "good report card". I swam there nearly every day until l was 15 and got a summer job at Earl's Diner,lol. Fond memories indeed!

I loved the little chapel in Storybook Gardens.  Actually the whole park was a favourite of mine.  So many memories of family times there.

Doug's medical appt. went well and I have to go to the office tomorrow to collect a p*********** for a walker and a requisition for blood work.  My son lives in the East end of Ottawa where the Dr.'s office is so we will stop by and have lunch with him and his wife.  I also bought the power bar with the surge protect and Doug installed it and everything works again.

I got a lot of sewing done today too.  I am almost ready to prepare the batting for my 20 blocks.  I am using small pieces to use them up.

The chapel/ church. I fashioned this one after a little pint sized chapel at Storybook Gardens in London Ont. Just barely tall enough for adults to stand in , it's actually been used for weddings.

Gee, Mary, and l always thought of libraries as peaceful islands in the midst of chaos! I'm glad l've never had to live in a city, though l worked retail in one for 7 yr. Give me small towns & country folk any time. 

Today l spent my " sewing time" creating fpp patterns for a grocery store and the toy shop, then 2 styles of houses. It takes me longer to draw, segment and copy these  than it does to sew and embellish them. I must tear myself from this project to make promised doll clothes and pillowcase to send with Erika's quilt. ..and l'll bet she'd like a skirt too :-)) l need to send parcel early next week.
