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.

Linda, is this a sewing problem that neighbour's & expecting help with? Perhaps you've just been too polite...she probably wants you to " just give in" and offer to do it for her! Some folks need to be told in plain words... so just tell her you need to focus on getting well, and she's not to visit or phone until you call her to say you're feeling up to it.

Linda, sounds like your neighbor is stressed out and you are the nearest person to take out her frustrations on.  My Mother used to tell me when someone like that upset me, "consider the source and ignore It".  I know that can be hard to do since you are  more or less a captive audience, glad there are people who will take your part.  I'm so sorry that youhave to deal with someone like that during a time that is already difficult.

Liz, your flowersare beautiful!

Wilma, you are amazing!  nice towels and face cloths for your sister's DIL!  And you now have lots of time for your jigsaw puzzle!

Lovely dinner with our son and DIL yesterday.  Dinner turned out good - a combined effort of Hubby and I.  Printer needs new ink and I need a new rotary cutter blade - I may attempt to visit each store briefly, but I am apprehensive.

Comment by Linda Koller yesterday

Riana, she is one unhappy, angry lady who started a project that is over her head. She has no social life. I guess she decided to take it out on me. I thought we were friends. Guess I was wrong. I came home from hospital and she started harassing me practically the day I got home. Praying for her. I'm avoiding her like the plague!

Worked on the embroidery machine today and finished up this set for my sister.  Her DIL is expecting in September so this will be part of her shower gift.

Comment by Riana Noyes yesterday

Kris, you can try it on scraps with a bit of minky to see how it goes. Yes, although the batting makes for a bulky quilt while working on it, it makes quilting a pleasure compared to without. I'm glad you're not quilting closely ( less quilting gives quilt a lovely drape). You are going to love the back of the quilt! Quilting looks great on minky. Be prepared to loosen tension a tad, and lift the ruler foot to make for easier movement if your machine will tollerate that. 

Comment by Kris Howell yesterday

Riana - thanks for the hints.  I use a sit down machine, and I always spray baste, so it's good to know that will still work on the Minky.  I hadn't planned to use any batting, but I could.  Do you strongly recommend it?  Does it make the quilting easier? I'm going to be making fairly large ovals using a ruler.  If trying to move the Minky and the ruler gives me trouble, I'll just draw the lines using the ruler. 

Comment by Riana Noyes yesterday

Linda, you really do have the worst luck with neighbours. I can't imagine anything you do could be any business of him or her. You don't have noisy parties, or even any    "bothersome" pets. What is it with some people?
