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.

Zoe and Riana, you are an inspiration to me.  Both of you have been working outside and getting great exercise.  I should be doing the same.  Well, I don't have any work outside but I should be walking in the sunshine.  Today I am going to the grocery store for some things I've run out of, so that will be a good start to moving around.

Riana, the CTQG is the one that is in the east end of Ottawa.  I may think about other Zoom adventures now that I know I can do it.  I also learned how to do it on my tablet.  You can do it too.  I installed the Zoom app by myself on the tablet.  I have to think twice about a Zoom class because that would mean another UFO.

Cute one, Zoe, complete with pets on windowsills. I love that travel fabric on the front door featuring the vintage vw camper, waterfalls and wildlife.

Riana, you got a wonderful Easter basket !

Elizabeth you are doing wonderful using Zoom, I have yet to do that. I am afraid that I am falling further behind in technology and not positive that I want to catch up. 

I got one more block done. I changed this one up, made the window frame darker, used a different window color and added a better dog and a cat. Now just one more home to make, then the other blocks that will be easier, and hopefully go faster.

Liz, glad you had a great day of sewing. Where is that guild located, l wonder? I spent the entire day outdoors. Morning was spent gardening, and in the afternoon my daughter and her family visited with us on the deck. So no sewing.

I had a lovely day today.  I attended a sew day with the Common Threads Quilt Guild on Zoom.  I even ate my lunch with them.  So I sewed, pressed and cut non-stop from 9:30 to 3:15 when my son and his wife showed up for dinner.  We ate early at 4:00 and watched Thunder Force, a funny movie, with Melissa McCarthy.  They left after the movie.

Riana, I love your thread set.  How nice for you!

Zoe, l get so tired after digging  raking, hauling ( guess l got out of shape over winter)...l'd just fall asleep on a nice soft foam slab.  ha ha ha!

My Easter present arrived! Only you all would understand how this made me smile!

I've finished up the last of several cones of thread this week.These came just in time!

Riana you sure are right about the outside work cutting into quilt time. I have still been going at it all strong. I found a place in the from that I still need to finish before I start on another area.  Then a helper came over to help me plant mondo grass as a lawn in one large area. I got to the dentist twice this week to fix the same tooth.  While there I found out the young man the quilt is for graduates from collage this summer, and is going to medical school. 

I am going to try and just sew tomorrow and Sunday, the new quilt room cabinets should all be in this next week, so that will be nice to have that all done... then the sorting and putting away.  

My mom got her second shot today and we walked the halls after that so she would work on her stability.  If you all are able too, get a balance pad kind of like this ,, any brand. It really helps work the small muscles that many of us don't use, but we need. My mom had bought two, I took one and put it in front of the TV and just stand on it, sometimes I do more.   Balance Pad for Exercise and Physical Therapy - Extra Large Non-Slip Foam Pad for Fitness,Yoga, Strength and Stability Training – Use as Knee Pad or Meditation Cushion

I didn't do much more after you left to make dinner, Riana, but in the evening I cut out half a scrappy quilt.  My fabric pieces are so little - hardly any of them are more than a FQ.  I just calculated the size of each block in a picture of a quilt in the CT catalog and got my "pattern".  I cut up a 1/2 meter of an animal print and about 5 different shades of grey. Still have to figure out what to cut up for the 10 1/2" squares.  I have a big flowered yellow and grey and that might do or I could use a soft grey - that would be the best!
