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.

Barbara. spray paint haphazardly, brown & black, 3-4 paper towel rolls, to look like logs and use tissue paper in oranges, yellow and reds to be crinkled, twisted, and  shaped like flames and stuck in the top of the pile of logs. That is what we did for our Christmas program that I did with Sunday School. Looks pretty good and gives the look. Much cheaper than buying anything real.

Thanks Linda and Ginny. Did they rule out the Bells Palsy, Linda? You are in our prayers always. I finished one of the girls club quilts. The one I put stars all over. It doesn't look to bad. The black and white one I start tomorrow. I'm glad I'm finally getting them done. Also working on the Christmas play for December 21 program. Trying to organize everything. We have a really nice fake fireplace in attic of the church but no fake fire. Got any ideas how to make a fake fire??? I saw an electric one at Minards but don't want to spend 40 bucks. ha ha!! Maybe I should check out the party store and see if they have any ideas for a fake fire.

Barbara - So sorry about Noah. You are correct with the verse. I put that verse on our Reap What You Sew labels. May God wrap His comforting arms around all who are grieving and give you peace. Noah is with all the little children in the kingdom of Heaven. God bless.

So sorry to hear of Noah's passing, Barbara. Prayers and peace for your family.

Linda, prayers continuing.

I love to hear about teens doing and responding well to their gr'parents. Signs of a positive future. Thank you for sharing, Mary.

Thank you all for your prayers and caring for little Noah. Sarah's grief must be overwhelming for her. She lost her father 4 years ago and her mother in April of this year. Brett and Sarah married a year ago. They are both lovely people and Yes, Mary they are going to need so much love and understanding from others and with each other. 

2Co 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,
2Co 1:4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

Oh, Barbara, how very sad.  You and family are my thoughts and prayers.

Barbara, heaven has just received a new little angel. Please pass on our condolences.Our group in Tx. made tiny whole cloth white  bereavement quilts ( or knitted little blankets )to be used for burial. Is this something you could do for your little grand nephew? l know it has helped others who were both quilters and relatives to deal with tge pain.

Linda Koller, prayers are with you.  It's so difficult not feeling well and having things all messed up.

Barb - So sorry for your family's loss.  Prayers are with you.
