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 don't see anyone else, so maybe it is not safe to be on here? I ran my antivirus .

Zoe - I got the same message, but came anyway, then saw that I had been logged out at some point.  I signed in, left and came back, and all was well.

My computer said there was a security risk.... coming here, is there?

Heights are not a worry for me. Good thing too, since l spent many hours helping my installer on tall ladders and scaffolding installing on 2 story long  drapes and celestory wondow curtains. My dad was a tv repairman, and back then he had to climb those towers that tv antennae perched on in order to fix a faulty rotator motor. In summer, l was sometimes pressed into service to help, and would  fetch extra wires or connectors when needed...l'd climb up because it saved him going up & down with tool belt or having to find a safe place to balance oddly shaped parts.

Mary, we went to the Rockies on vacation to see the glaciers, and l got a really bad ear ache and infection. It happened again a few years later when at high altitude. No mountain climbing for me!

Liz, so glad that your Hubby is feeling better.  It sounds like he ma be almost back to is old self if he is complaining and wanting to move around more.  He just needs to be careful, I've been there and done that and found that you're not nearly as spry as you think you are sometimes.  

Wilma, I know that we are fearful for any little thing that doesn't feel right because of COVID.  Any new aches and pains, head aches or runny noses we start wondering if it can be something to worry about.  Sorry about your mom's ministers family, we have seen several family outbreaks in our area.  I am so anxious for a vaccine to be approved so we can get back to some kind of normal life again.

Wilma, I saw on T.V. (CNN) that the first symptom of covid is a fever.  So I took my Hubby's temp. when he told me he was sick and his temp. was normal.  Diarrhea was 4th on the list.  It is after a cough.  Doug has been the most self-isolated person I know, so we'd have to be very unlucky to get sick.

Mary, I am very scared of heights - even on our 2nd floor balcony.  I have dreams where I get bad vertigo because of being close to a floor to ceiling window or falling our of a window.  I won't watch those documentaries for sure! LOL  My hands sweat also watching certain scenes on T.V.

We are watching Mountain climbing movies and documentaries.  So far we have done K2, Eiger, and Matterhorn. It is cooling, but then my hands sweat from being scared of heights..and the knitting suffers.

Thanks for all the compliments, I love knitting socks.  Keeps my hands busy at, glad hubby is feeling better.  We freak out any time we get an upset stomach...fear of COVID.

The homebound minister for my mom called last night to check on her.  They are not permitted to go to the facility.  She lost her mom in the midst of Covid.  She told me that her SIL, daughter, newborn granddaughter, her husband and she all got it.  She had it the worst of all of them.  Said no one had to be hospitalized but all were concerned about the newborn. Crazy how it hit the entire family.  They figured the SIL contracted it from a visiting Company VP who came here from east coast.

Thank you, Barbara.  He ate 3 meals yesterday so his stomach must be feeling better.  And if I help him, he bawls me out saying he needs to move around.  Sounds like a total recovery! LOL

Liz I hope your hubby is doing better and staying better.
