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.

Wilma, I looked at the site of My Girlfriends Quilt Shoppe.  It looks like a very nice store.  I wish that I was into machine embroidery.

I spoke to my daughter on-line yesterday.  No wild fires in her area of central B.C.  She is very busy canning and doing baking to sell at their weekly marketplace, besides her animals and farm garden.  She kept back 50 chickens from the slaughterers because they were small.  She fattened them up and slaughtered them herself.  They are for her because she can't sell them.  She also has a full-time job selling school supplies.  I was teasing her that we'd come and lie with her and I'd help her with her chores.  Can you imagine that?  I'd be as useless as (you know the rest of the saying) LOL

Prayers for Zoe and all those affected by hurricane Sally.

Riana, I talk on-line with a new quilter, named Nicole, who lives in Belleville.  She shops at the Fabricland in Belleville and at a quilt shop on Hwy. #2.

I looked at the classes offered by Sew Steady and I would need to get into ruler work to benefit from the classes.  I would need to buy the Bernina ruler work foot before I started.  Must think about this.

Sewing the last border on my Baby Boy Quilt today.

Zoe is likely without power, so we won't hear from her for a while. Reports show that hur. Sally skimmed along the coast , nearly stalling, dumping buckets of rain ( 8.5" on Pensacola) . Flooding is more of a concern at this time. I hope Zoe lives a bit more inland than the Pensacola Shores area that has extensive flood damage. The hurricane hit land at Gulf Shores Alabama at 5 a.m. Wed. Sept. 16( today) ,  cat 2. Again , extensive damage and flooding. The storm is now still heading nw. over land. Prayers for those who live in the area.

Linda - sorry the air quality is affecting your activities.  That's a real bummer.

Zoe - stay in out of the rain!  Seriously - I pray you and your mom stay safe. 

Mary - grumble away!  I like smell of a fire, but don't like constantly breathing that smoke. 

For those of you who are on Facebook - check out the Sew Steady page.  There are free tutorials just about every day of the week, and the video is available for viewing later.  Most of it involves different ways to use the Westalee rulers, but you learn other things, too.  The one I watched recently was a spider web wall hanging, but the finishing technique was very different - basically a facing rather than a binding, and the corners for hanging with a yardstick or dowel were included.  That's something I'm going to use.

Cat 1 Sally is heading our direction, it is building strength as it is only moving 2 mph.  I am worried ! I have never heard such winds, and rains and watching the pines bend back and forth.. tornadoes possible.. my mom said not to worry, she went to bed. I will be up all night long.  This is not comfortable!!!

We've been getting a lot of smoke from the CA fires for the past 2 weeks. Because I have asthma/COPD I've had to give up going to the pool for water aerobics. We now have some wildfires here in AZ as well. We are in severe drought conditions due to lack of rain the past 2 monsoon seasons. The shift of winds is suppose to clear our air quality by the end of the week; but this is not good for California fires. We've also dropped out of triple digit temperatures into the high 90's with night time temps in the low 70's....better sleeping weather.

Yes , Liz applecores on back of Layla's quilt are the combined leftovers after her cutting/ sewing for front...after l cut those out, there were small ends left over where the die didn't reach. So l straight cut those to strips, and stitched to spent dryer sheets, then put them thru the Baby Go cutter again. No waste, as  corners left after that go into pet beds for animal shelter.l keep a grocery bag hanging on the end of my cutting table. As soon as l finish cutting a project, scraps between 1" and 2" go there. No small slivers of fabric, and no batting, as those are choking hazzards. Stressed animals sometimes chew.

Liz, I have been doing virtual classes through They are in Utah.  They have several free classes, lots of embroidery classes, some hand embroidery classes and specific projects.  Some are free, others reasonable.  The Christmas Club is all sewing...

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on Tuesday

Wilma, your remodelling project sounds so nice!  We have  thought about a reno of our kitchen, then decided we were too old to worry about it.  Where did you find free virtual classes?  I have seen some virtual classes that charge and I was afraid to enroll because I might be too dumb to get the technology right and I would end up with nothing. LOL
