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.

We will be doing our usual posting, like we did for Linda's wonderful tea party.  Glad you can come.

Mary, do I have to know Zoom for the Halloween lunch in Tiny Town?  I'd be pleased to attend but I will need further instructions.

Riana, She has not gotten back with me yet, but I will let you know when I learn more. The woman told me she would write everything out that we went over.  This might be the product

She said it should go down Sep, mid march and then June. This will not kill the weeds, but help prevent new ones from coming up, but she said it is safe to put everywhere.. but don't allow it on the concrete. She said once you put it down, water it, then if there are pets to not have them on the grass for a few hours, when it is dry.

Hi Everyone!  I am machine quilting Visions of the Forest Quilt.  Funny I gave it that name a while ago but the quilting will certainly reflect the condition of my eyes at the time.  Hardly matters!  I like working on it.

Zoe, please tell me the name of that product so l can get it for our place in Fla. next yr., or even advise the renter this yr. Is it for keeping weeds down amongst shrubs in gardens? That's my biggest headache when south.

Elizabeth, I am glad that the doctor could see your eye and knew what was going on. I had a virtual eye exam yesterday at Sam's club, this was rather interesting. The doctors work from a remote site and can operate the "eye thing" from their location. They run a test that replaces drops dilation, and from that I found out that my eye's have a "blonde" background, the tech said this is something that she never had seen before, but it was normal.    

On my sewing, I am lagging. Yard work seems more important right now before it gets cold and I cannot be outside.  I cut down a tree today with my hand saw, and dug up 10 gumbo azaleas, as I decided that the flower bed by the house was just too hard to keep and I am cutting it way back.  I had a woman come out two days ago to help me with plant ideas and how to arrange things as I was struggling. I think this was worth it as she told me of a product that I can put down in the yard 3 times a year, even in the back where the dogs and this will prevent weeds, so maybe that will in time same my sanity !

Not one stitch sewn here all day, as l had the sewing room upside down with drill, jigsaw and screwdrivers. All l wanted to do was move my old little dental cabinet from under one counter to under adjacent one, so l could access drawers of bobbins, feet & little tools l use for sewing while seated at each of my 2 Janomes. Well! Not so simple... the cabinet wouldn't fit for height there ( had to remove it's base and casters, then replace base), and there was a support leg in the way . So the biggest job was moving the support leg of counter to new location ...that meant cutting a new leg as old one wouldn't budge & had to be cut flush under counter. Them machine had to come out of counter, so l could screw through wall of " well" it sits in to new leg....and on and on. So, 2 days after starting this " simple change", l'm happy to say l now have a more functional workspace. Bonus is, l also toughed up paint in places, so all looks fresh. I also have my canvas cover off my worktable to was stapled on. I just had an idea

! l'm going to put elastic around it so l can remove for washing without the staples ! Now l hope THIS idea goes easier,lol.

Riana, my eye Dr. told me he knew when one of his lashes goes stray how it hurts so he could appreciate my pain.  I hope that I can see the eye surgeon soon.

Meanwhile this morning I am sewing a border on Fun With Bricks, the Bonnie Hunter pattern.  QOVC also adapted the pattern to make a QOV.

Wow who knew that could happen, Liz! 2 yr ago, my eye doc plucked a few eyelashes from my upper lids' outer corners, as she said they were going the wrong way. I thought at the time she was being overly carefull. Now l appreciate what it was all about! Hope they can schedule soon.
