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.

The quilt is the perfect finishing touch to the train room Riana.

Linda, your walker bags are beautiful.

Linda, when you lived in Ohio did you ever go to the Warther Museum. Not sure if that is how you spell his name. He carved some beautiful scale model trains. One of them was the Lincoln funeral train. I think he had only a third grade education, but found a carving knife and started whittling. The museum is full of scale model trains. He also has some of his whittling work in Guiness World Records. It's been about 25 years since we visited that museum.  The quality of every piece of work he did was spectacular.

Wilma, I'm right there with you.  I just can't sit and watch TV.  I'll fall asleep just like that.  Mostly I read while dh watches!  

Riana, I love DP9 quilts.  Yours is beautiful.

Linda, what a beautiful scene on your walker bag!  

I'm headed to the sewing room to finish the hand sewing on the binding of a small quilt.  Pictures tomorrow.

The impromptu bug quilt. As you can see, l quilted the caterpillar some plants to eat.

Beautiful walker accessory, Linda! 

I made a dp9 with railway fabrics for the train room, and a cross stitch of quilts on a clothesline for the hallway wall between train room and sewing/ laundry room.

Linda, love your walker bag, the fabric is great.

My hubby’s grandad was a railroad conductor.  He wanted to be one also, unltil they tested him and found out he was color blind...he didn’t realize it til then.

Gail, I knit at night or work on my applique projects.  I think sitting and watching TV without something in my hands is a waste of time.  I usually work on socks.

My Dad spent much of his childhood riding trains with his grandfather, the CONDUCTOR.  No train set for the daughters...but the mania hit with the grandsons.

Gail, it looks like you and your daughters have already decorated Hubby's train room.  What about you, Riana?

I was downstairs in the party room ironing my quilt scraps all morning and the Super and one of my friends kept me company.  Got them all done.

Linda, your walker bag is so pretty and so practical!  you did a lovely job on it!

I think someone sent me a link to a walker bag.  Was it you, Riana?

Comment by Gail Brown on December 19, 2019 at 10:59am

Riana, I think we have been challenged by Elizabeth to make a quilt to hang outside one of the houses in our Hubbies villages.  Luckily most of my Hubbies trains are o gauge, just alittle bigger than HO.  He does have some HO and some N gauge.  I'll have to think about this.  He does have a train wall hanging on the wall.  Does that count?  He also has a framed picture that one of our Grand Daughters drew in second grade and won a prize for in an art show as well as a counted cross stitched picture of a train done by one of our Daughters.

Linda, I love your walker bag, very stylish.  Love the fabric.

Wilma the towels are great.  I don't have an embroidery machine, just my hands.  It's what I do in the evening watching TV or listening to music.  I have never been able to keep my hands still so it works out well for me.  I give them as gifts and sell them at craft shows.

Love model trains and airplanes! Daddy use to fly remote control airplanes when I was little. I have a photo with me and one of his planes. It was bigger than me! I always wanted a model railroad running thru a garden outside. Saw one once and it was so cool. Had a friend who recreated his home town in Germany in his basement and had German model trains. It was awesome!

For Christmas, I made myself a new walker bag....finally.
