Haha! Riana, you are really tough on Mary.  I think that Mary should chose a project of hers that is the easiest on her and the most fun to work on and give that her priority at this time and only work on the more intensive of her projects when she feels like - advice from the PROCRASTINATOR SUPREME - me!

Riana - so much work your GD's quilt - but it's going to be terrific!  

Barbara - your table runners are beautiful and so perfect for those tables.  Don't despair over your brother.  My youngest brother finally got married in his mid 40s.  

I finished the WIP that was on my midarm, just waiting for the batting to arrive in the next couple days to start quilting the SS.  

I'm also assembling blocks from units on the Wedding Star quilt, but I'm having to take apart and redo some blocks because the pinks and lilacs are in the wrong places, sigh  Oh well.

Oh how the seasons are blurring! Chistmas with Elizabeth ( looking great...nice change from reds/ greens), St. Pattrick's with Gail ( glad the end's in sight for you, hang in there!) , sping/ summer with Wilma ( such lovely spring shades) and autumn with Zoe...( lets see some of those leaves, even without their "frames"?).

Mary, if l let yours spill over to next yr., you won't even get one done. So NO ! When you said you'd do 3, l want your very best efforts to do them until Dec.31/2020. I know life gets in the way, but you must focus. A little/ day...l'm proud of your hand quilting efforts and tapestry work. Concentrate on those 2, and give Don Q a rest until you have less on your mind...you can do this!

Beautiful, Wilma!

Well, I got a call from the quilter and my two PHDs are finished.  I pick them up tomorrow.  I will then add binding and will be able to finish up 2 of my six.  Yippee.  Here is a preview of one of them...she posted it on our sewing club’s Facebook group....keeps my group in touch with each other.  We are still making masks, and they sent a notice out to the association that we would sell residents masks...we have already donated over 3000 to local hospitals, hospice groups, etc.

so here is a look...

Yes, Gail, that sounds fine.  I'll definitely be able to finish the Christmas Tree Wall hanging by July if everything continues as is.  I have been sewing some of the rows of the LBQ and I work on the odd square for various quilt-alongs.  It's warming up a bit and I can wear a jacket instead of my Winter coat when Hubby and I go for a walk.

Pondering the idea of a 1-2 year extension application for our UFOs???  If Mama duck would allow?

Comment by Linda Koller on April 28, 2020 at 10:55am

LOL, Gail! I have comical pictures of tortise all over the house to remind me to slow down!

Comment by Gail Brown on April 28, 2020 at 10:51am

Elizabeth, that looks for a good finish for "Christmas in July" celebration.  I'm still working on St. Patrick's Day quilt. but almost finished.  One more round of stitching on the border and then the binding and I'm done. Going to give it to my GS Patrick, since his little children call St. Paddys day St. Daddy day.

Linda, Remember the tortise and the hare, that Pansey quilt will get done.  I know it's hard right now, I can't see my pain management doctor now and there's no end in sight here.  Tylenol is almost impossible to find here as well.  My microwaeable heating pad is screaming for mercy.  I use it and have been doing meditation exercises, it helps for a while.  Still trying to do a bit every day though, like you it just takes longer.

Riana, I hope to have my first finish done by the weekend, I have second one ready to start quilting.  Still am unable to do the one that has been on the frame since the first of the year.  It just stares at me and says "what about me?"  I do hope to be able to get it done, it's meant to be a Christmas gift for one o my GSs and his wife.  I think I was overly Gung Ho about what I was going to get done, alot of things got in the way for my ambitions, broken back, making masks and some family problems, but I am making progress.  That's me always biting off more than I can chew, that's why I have a wealth of PHDs.  Already planning next years list.

Oh, I like that, Elizabeth!

Bless your heart, Linda...you always look after those shelters ( l supply our 2 local ones). We're all just glad to see you're back at the machine. Summer pansies are as welcome as spring ones :-))

Comment by Linda Koller on April 27, 2020 at 11:40pm

No Riana I'm not working on the pansy quilt just yet. It took me a week to make a 12" applique block that normally would take less than 2 hours (as you saw my post on FB). I did manage to cut batting today for some kennel quilts for a sew-athon coming up in 3 weeks. There's a desperate need for shelters in Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee after the tornadoes. Plus the shelter I supply back in Ohio is in need. They are small enough to work on. I've been living on Tylenol for the past week after bending to pick up something outside. I'm almost out of Tylenol and having difficulty getting a new supply. Did finally get a 24 ct. bottle of generic brand at Walgreens. It won't last long. Hopefully, in a couple more months I'll be able to start working on the pansy quilt again. I'm half way thru my recovery and have an appointment with pain management next month if things do open back up.

Mary, doing the white on white may not be something that shows up in a progress photo, but once it's surrounded by other colors, it'll pop. 

Linda, have you ventured into doing more pansey quilt yet? Spring promises to come here but it's shy. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

Elizabeth, l understand you're working on the tree wall piece...care to show us a photo of it's progress?

Comment by Mary Moore on April 27, 2020 at 12:42pm

Never thought of a riding snail.  There is a whole picture book in that idea.

It is a burn day today.  I get help start and then sit and watch it safely burn.  Knitting is the easiest to take along.  I would show you how the tapestry is doing, but I've been filling in white on the light linen for days and it looks like nothing.

Comment by Ginny Andersen on April 27, 2020 at 12:11pm

This is adorable, Riana! You are having way too much fun with this, aren't you? :c))

Comment by Gail Brown on April 27, 2020 at 11:57am

Riana, you are so talented, so cute.  I love the snail!

Comment by Riana Noyes on April 27, 2020 at 9:39am

Thanks, Barbara.

I really wanted to use the little blue fairy print, but it was too dark for the quilt. I decided to replicate my fave motif on it for one of the applique blocks 

Comment by Barbara Hughes on April 27, 2020 at 9:24am

The colored fabric looks charming, RIana.

Comment by Riana Noyes on April 26, 2020 at 4:49pm

Those lines are just drawn in on my editer. Still working on scounging up enough of each fabric colour... but have begun revisiting the frames.
