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.

Love the pic Mary ~~ and the fact that you got the poppies in the front on that wall  hahahaha  I miss those poppies too ... lots of memories of them on the roadsides as I walked to school ... and licorice ... which we would pull and eat .. and loquats in the trees in the apartments as we went through there too ... 

A cousin just sent me picx of my mom and her sister as kids .. looks to be about 5-7 .. I have chills .. depression era pics in the sepia tones .. I have got to print these and frame .. 

<sneaking back to work !>

i remember the hat, but forget which knitting issue. i don't get their different publications, just the one called Piecework. the march april issue had a pattern for a replica of a felt needle keep from Albert & Victoria museum in england. there is one issue i am holding out w scottish gloves knitted in geometric blocks. hope to have at least one pair made before next winter :))

Hi Rogue, I made the Estonian Cap from the knitting waiting and waiting for the cold weather to wear it.  Fortunately my neighborhood is into ethnic hats in winter.

thanks dee..glad you enjoyed it. i have read many of, but no where near all of, her articles. realy great reads. i subscribe to a magazine from taunton press that i love ..all about historical needlework from countries & cultures around the world. last issue was the annual knitting issue. always fascinating. i haven't found whole feedsacks that i can afford in quite a few years. last nice ones i bought were 5$ for four @ a flea mkt couple years ago. from colors & prints i'm guessing they are the most recent of all my feedsack treasures. probably from the 60's. they were not expensive, but most i've ever paid. there's a few sites on net i've visited, but their prices are way to high.

my knee is having trouble adjusting to work load. pain in the pattoty when body parts don't eork right lol. so ..prayers coming your way, hope that the knee doesn't get worse

Rogue ~ that knitting blog is very cool. I never knew that ... 

Just saw a store in an ad on the sidebar for vintage flour sack fabrics ~~ must find that again  <hee hee !>

Working on Quilts of Valor this week, and Doug is off through Saturday so will be working more on getting gardens weeded, poison oak/ivy sprayed, etc.  Got a lot accomplished outside the past couple days and my feet are doing ok .. so far. .. Now my right knee that is bone on bone it is reminding me to slow down.  But I am excited on the progress of being able to use the ball of my foot after having these adjustments done ...  say a prayer for me ~ 

Nite all ~ going to work on some grannies for a few before bed ~
