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.

I received a wonderful surprise yesterday...a box full of fabric pieces arrived plus a sweet ufo nearly done came with it. It's sad when someone must part ways with their favorite passtime. But she knows every bit will be put to good use. And l'm grateful. The cost of quality fabric is rediculous in Canada.

I like the idea Riana, it will keep things less messy on talk.

I let my nephew know last night that we will not go to his weeding. That we were making plans and really want to go, but with the covic-19, we just cannot take a chance. My mom is 87 and this virus is just too unknown. We had one guy get it, he went to the hospital 4 days ago and died two days later. He had travel abroad, but no one knows where he has been in the area, so it makes it sink in that there are many just walking around. 

I just got to a spot that I can start quilting again. I think I will get the binding on the great nieces quilt done and send that off this week, it will give me a sense of accomplishment.  

I have been having dizzy spells again, I am not sure if it is inner ear, or cutting fabric, or being on the computer and the neck is getting tight. I took an Aleve last night and it seemed to help. Does anyone else here have this issue?

I got my mom a new side by side, as the other refrig was making it hard on her to keep the door open. She is getting used to it, but as with all things it takes time.

We had our front lawn sprayed. We have had mundo grass in the front for over 30 years and I told them not to spry it, so what did they do- yes, they sprayed it ! They will have to replace it all, but it will make it hard to mow this summer. I get so tired of hiring people to do the job they say they know how to do, then I have to stand there and make sure. No, I was not out there with them, I should have been.  Frustrating. It seems so small right now with so many people infected right now with that virus and it scares me, as if I got ill.. my mom too will get ill.  I am trying to stay home more.

I received a message asking if anyone but the PHD challenge participants can remark on the PHD challenge page. The answer is YES, just chime right in,lol...but let's try to keep all comments on that page to PHD subjects, and keep our varied chit chats on this group page. For some reason my messenger box isn't working properly. I cannot repy or send...Sylvia may be of help. I hope so.

Great plan, Kris , as Ohio won't see real spring for another month. We'll be heading north in 3 or 4 wks. When we travelled to Tx. l always dreaded the roads in Louisianna, as they were very rough...really hard on the motorhome. We cracked a windshield and a microwave became unscrewed & dropped , no dodging those big holes even on bigger highways. The last of 2014, they were finally working on repaving the interstate. Too late for us,lol.l hope they got the secondary ones upgraded by now too.

Riana - we are heading south first, and will meander across southern Texas then go up through Louisiana, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and into Ohio.  Only staying one night in each spot, but not travelling long distances each day.  Should be easy and fun.

So, Kris, are you heading to your northern headquarters after the " ides of March", or do you plan to see some of the other lovely sites and wander?

Comment by Kris Howell on March 5, 2020 at 10:38am

Whew!!!!  I think I'm back in the land of not so many things that have to get done so I can do the things I want to do, lol!!!

Riana, that cat and mouse quilt is adorable!  Kudos on the donated quilt and the money it brought in!  

The Elephant baby, dollhouse, tulip twist and 4 patch quilts are beautiful, too.  Well done, ladies!

Linda, it's great that you are home again!  Please get well quickly.  

Mary, glad Paul is improving.  Keep it going, both of you.

Liz, I know how you feel with your baby in the spa for her fluff and buff, lol.  I just did that, first with my Bernina sewing machine, and then, when I picked it up, with my Babylock quilting machine!  Both are back and running beautifully. 

I have gotten some work done this last week, first on a knitted afghan that should really be a PHD project given how long it has been hanging around.  Next, on picking out a row of Baptist fan quilting that didn't suit me.  I was using the quilt block itself as a measure when moving up a row not realizing that the template size and blocks don't like up properly.  Duly chastised, I will now measure as I move up!  I've made 2 blocks for an exchange, and 2 blocks for the SS quilt which I will post on the PHD page.  

We have until March 15th at this RV park in Phoenix, a 3 year old's birthday to attend on Saturday, a farewell lunch with some friends on Thursday, two other appointments, and my car in the shop.  Maybe I'm not totally in that do what I want zone yet, but I'm getting there.  

Riana, I attended the AQS quilt show when it was here in Phoenix a few years ago.  What a grand adventure that was!  Glad you got to go and enjoy one, too.

Gail, l hope the proceedure worked. How long before you can go home and start moving around?

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on March 2, 2020 at 9:37am

This morning, Hubby and I are driving to Kanata to the quilt shop to take in my Bernina for servicing.  I have been putting it off because I do not like being without my baby!  Freezing rain is supposed to start about noon so we will come right home.  Hubby said that I should ask Riana for a reprieve from the PhD Challenge while my baby is in the hospital but I told him that Riana already knows that I have a second machine. LOL

Sunbonnet Liz, Riana. That quilt is incredable. The tiny details all over the quilt, amazing work!!
