UFOs

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.See More

Ohhh, I would hate to leave your wonderful cabin in Alaska for the lower 48, but as you said you don't want to miss on the new family members growing up. Will you keep your place in AK? We have been through your town on our way to Homer. My Aunt and Uncle lived there for over 20 years, he was a teacher. They now live in KS.    Maybe you'll get inspired with a new Hobby while in PA? Keep us posted on your new adventure and all that you have created. Best travels.
