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.

Mary, we have a mobile home in Ohio near two of our kids.  We'll live there during the summer months, and RV here in the Phoenix area during the winter.  Two kids and 6 grandkids live here, two kids, 6 grandkids and one great grand live there.  That way we can enjoy all of them!

I make and sell doggie diapers. PM me for a brochure for Indy's Doggie Designs.

Mary, when we took Molly in to see vet, a lady had her dog with her wearing " doggie diapers"! Yes, she purchased them( online, l believe), her elder golden retriever had bladder trouble.

Kris,  What a great way to sell a house!  And a new grandbaby!!!  I must have missed some previous posts..are you going to RV full time? (That might be a way to get Paul away from his power tools)

Poor Indy must make him so tired. 

My Doggie, Ma, is hating her insulin shots (I'm not as coordinated as Paul was), not getting used to being blind, and now having LARGE accidents in the house.  This is not a decision we are ready to make.  She is still so loving, I can't trust her to give me the look that says she is ready.

Back in my Art Class days we were to do a visual pun.  I got two rubber duckies and half submerged them in wax, which I carved into cheese shapes and painted;  Blue Cheese and Swiss.  Wish I had taken their picture.

I'm trying to remember a quote about dreams...oh well.

Thank you, Kris.

What a lovely photo you posted of your 2 grandsons admiring their new brother.  Congratulations!  A new GS!  Glad to hear that your daughter and the baby are both doing well!

Your sewing room looks tidy!  And your blocks look perfect!

Wow Kris! You have had a whirlwind month! Congratulations on the new grandbaby!! Love the blocks you managed to get done.

Indy had a good vet appointment the other day. Love his new vet. The other vet took a leave of absence. The new vet increased his prednisone dosage because of the coughing. He had been coughing the night before, all morning and all the way to the vet. So she saw him coughing. She said that much coughing actually hurts his chest and ribs and agreed he needs quality of life. He will be 10 years old in June. Hopefully, when the weather warms up in the spring, the coughing won't be so bad. Other than the coughing, Indy is doing great.

Elizabeth - that Duckling quilt is just adorable!! Really like how the setting sets off the blocks.

To you who are doing, or have done, the Hawaiian needle turn applique:  My hat's off to you.  I could never do it.  I do raw edge applique using the sewing machine blanket stitch to finish it, and I do it as seldom as possible.  I'm not a fan.

Mary, your floor is going to look fantastic!  I'm sure it's hard to work with, but oh my - going to be so worth it.

I was sorry to read about Paul's accident, and sure do hope he's healing nicely.
