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 think the older machines resent being left out, and can be very cranky.  Also the deep grease they use can get hard.  Try a hair dryer on the innards.

Oh no!  Yesterday my old grandmother of a machine (no longer my baby) let me down while machine quilting my Butterfly quilt.  It would take a few stitches and then stop.  I cleaned the machine twice, changed the needle, and took the thread the bobbin out and rethreaded it and still it did the same thing.  I even oiled it.  Rats!  I'm setting up my other machine - my new lightweight Janome and continuing sometime today.  And this is supposed to be relaxing and keeping me serene!  Haha!

Love the angel with the apron and mit. Darling!! 

We had two collies when we were kids. They looked like lassy. Ladie and Penny. Smart dogs.

This is something Riana said last year in December. After a question about Boxing Day. "In old English times, " Boxing Day" was when folks wrapped & gifted their presents. Christmas Day was kept as a strictly serious religious holiday. In the Netherlands, " Santa Claus day" is December 6th, when children get presents from St Nick, also preserving the real meaning of Christmas day it's more serious intent. I'm afraid we in North America have totally commercialized the Holy Birthday celebration." Thanks Riana

Mary, Yes, the Border Collies are way too smart for me !

Your Husband might be able to eat peanuts, it would be good to have something thing with fiber, fat and protein.  Have him cut back bread to one slice, as it will rise blood sugar faster than sugar will.

Riana, what a cut idea you did in making your grand daughter the apron and oven mittens .

Sadly, l will have to get up at 4 a.m. tomorrow for ride to airport for 7 a.m. flight to Orlando. Mary , l would've loved to see you and spend time stitching on a tapestry! Alas l only had 4 days here between between travel days, and was catching up on grandmothering since the last time l saw her she was only 4 mo.old. l got to watch her all by myself while daughter & her hubby had their very first adult restaurant dinner date in 2 1/2 yr.! I felt so honoured. Grampa gets to visit just before Christmas...he's home minding animals.

Riana, your granddaughter is adorable in her new apron!

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips yesterday


Lovely grand daughter!  Oven mitts and apron are so appropriate as I see she has a kitchen behind her!  When my grandkids were little they had a kitchen at our place too.  We had tea parties and ate pizza.
