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.

Barb - you come right over my head, kinda, so will be watching for you and have dinner ready when you pick me up!  I have always wanted to take a balloon ride! Years ago when I lived in an apartment complex in Il. I heard this loud noise and looked out my balcony..hug skull and cross bones black balloon was sweeping through the complex right at eye level and landed at the field at the end of the complex!  It was wild!!!!!

Just read everyone's Easter wishes and so glad everyone had a blessed day!  Linda its good to hear your settling in well and getting to make your place more your own with lots of things to keep you and Indy busy!  Really glad to hear they are getting your meds straightened out!  You should feel so much better!

Chatting with you all on my porch today and loving it!  Beautiful weather and some much needed rain.  Lawn in greened up but the leaves are just coming out!  Definitely puts me in the cleaning mode!  What I'm off to do for a little while today.  Have a three day BFF retreat starting tomorrow so have to get a batch of Ragu Bolognese made for my contribution.  If you want a great recipe, look it up in taste of  It was in the Feb/March 2010 issue.

Took the passing quilt to the nursing home yesterday.  Mom thought it was hers (she is getting real confused lately) but I told her what it was for and she was fine.  The nursing home appreciated it.  Think I need to make a cheery spring colored quilt to brighten up her room!!! 

Have a great weekend!!!

Am thinking of the piecing design we could do in silk for the balloon itself.  We could land at county fairs and see the quilts!

Elizabeth, maybe we could cruise the Great Lakes with you?

One of my library volunteers is taking a video making class and has to make a 3 minute documentary.  He wants to interview me about the new library.  Poor boy, he had to pick the most photogenic person in the world.

That is so sad Elizabeth.  I love chickens. I'd like to put a coop in my back yard. I hear you can only have two chickens in the city. Free range with the perfect garden around them so they can eat off the fat of the land.

Our balloon adventure will not be the same without you.

Hi Everyone,

I don't think that I'll be in the balloon.  I'm too chicken!  I see balloons in the air over Ottawa so frequently.  On a warm day I count them in the sky.  They make unplanned landings - I've watched them come down.  Farmers just hate how it messes up their crops.  I keep my feet on the ground or extended on my Lazy-Boy.  Even the part about being in a movie, didn't totally tempt me!

In 2013 (I think) we were going to start our own senior home for quilters. In 2014 we were going to bus across the US and Canada to pick up everyone and meet in P Kentuck with our quilts of valor!! Now I need to refresh my memory of the lyrics to "my beautiful balloon". We are sure a fun group. We should make a movie of all our adventures. It would be a five star Oscar Winner for sure. Maybe it would become a series. lol!!

I'm working on a small indigo UFO quilt. Remind me NOT  to eyeball when I quilt. I can't seem to eyeball a straight line. lol!!

Oh l've got The 5th Dimension in my head singing "...the world's a nicer place in my beautiful'll be with me all night now,lol!

Comment by Riana Noyes on April 10, 2015 at 8:30pm

The ones l quilt for other members are given back untrimmed and unbound for the sewer to complete, Beth, but l'm a "finisher", so any l put together & quilt, l also bind. lt's something l do in evenings while keeping hubby company. 

Comment by Beth A. North on April 10, 2015 at 6:40pm

Well quilt then Riana and let someone else do that binding. LOL

If you are that directionally challenged, let me go with you because hubby always puts me in charge of directions.

Comment by Riana Noyes on April 10, 2015 at 6:33pm

ha ha..the balloon idea sounds like fun...but l'm directionally challenged, so it might touch down in Tahiti or Tibet!

I've finished quilting one group ufo, and l'm binding it now. The next one's on the frame. Only 2 weeks left before packing up & heading north, so trying to get as much done on borrowed Bailey as l can.
