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.

Thank you, I took the wall hanging to her tonight and she loved it! It did take her awhile to see what it was , I guess the antlers could have been a bit darker. 

Now to finish up that bright quilt for my friend and then start on the warm quilt for my Mom. I hope it will go fast.

My sons favorite book when he was little was "Robert the Rose Horse" We would read it to him using his name instead of Roberts. He wanted it read over and over. I don't remember what book I liked when that young. But when I was about 12 I liked "The Witch of Blackbird Pond." Who wasn't really a witch.   We  all loved the book "The Indian in the Cupboard". The movie didn't come close to the suspence and wonder of what was alive in the medicine cabinet.

I am working on a table runner. It will be my first free motion attempted on my new machine. So far it's much better than I've done before, but I still need to fine tune my work which will come with time. Starting and stopping needs to be improved.

Pokey Puppy was my sister's favorite book, mine was Ferdinand.  I agree that Mouse came first.  I think Zoe also needs to check out the books by Pinkwater, Manus that contain moosi, though they are often blue.

Dee, Kolhs had the books on sale for $5.00 and you could also by the animal that went with it for $5.00 also. I bought the mouse and cookie book for my neices baby shower gift with two little outfits for a baby boy. I don't know if the sale is still on or not.

Zoe, you are a riot to print that all out. It's adorable.

About the books, I think the original, and the best of them, is If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. When we had the baby shower for my daughter, I asked everyone to bring a favorite book and sign it for baby Celeste. I brought 2 books, one of them being If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. That was my daughter's favorite book when she was little and she was thrilled to get it for her baby! (The other one I brought was Pokey Little Puppy which was my favorite as a little girl.)

Love the moose quilt, Zoe!  I've looked at that quilt kit so many times One of these days I'll get the kit and make the wallhanging.

I need those books !!!!  Must find them .. they would be perfect for the grands.

Checking in from work ~ wow 6 pages girls I had to catch up !

I am keeping the machines humming at home ~ and the juices are flowing. But, I may have a kink in the road this week.  We finally have had an offer on our home and it looks like this is "THE" one.  Going to be praying for the 'whats' next cycle .. and finishing is still in my future !

Zoe - that is an adorable moose wall hanging.  So cute!

Karen I love the GFG.  It is really lovely.  I've had one in the works for 4-5 years.  I finally have all of the flowers finished and have the white hexies around about half.  I only work on it sporatically or when watching TV.   I get bored with it and have to move on to something else and so it sits until I decide its time to pick it up again.

Had to look it up...

 If you give a moose a muffin, he'll want some jam to go with it. 
So you'll bring out some of your mother's homemade blackberry jam. When he's finished eating the muffin, he'll want another. And another. And another. When they're all gone he'll ask you to make more. You'll have to go to the store to get some muffin mix. He'll want to go with you. When he opens the door and feels how chilly it is, he'll ask to borrow a sweater.When he puts the sweater on, he'll notice one of the buttons is loose. He'll ask for a needle and thread. He'll start sewing. The button will remind him of the puppets his grandmother used to make. So he'll ask for some old socks. He'll make sock puppets. When they're done, he'll want to put on a puppet show. He'll need some cardboard and paints. Then he'll ask you to help make the scenery. When the scenery is finished, he'll get behind the couch. But his antlers will stick out. So he'll ask for something to cover them up. You'll bring him a sheet from your bed. When he sees the sheet, he'll remember he wants to be a ghost for Halloween. He'll try it on and shout, "BOO!" It'll scare him so much, he'll knock over the paints. So he'll use the sheet to clean up the mess. Then he'll need some soap to wash it out. He'll probably want to hang the sheet up to dry. He'll go outside to put it on the clothesline. When he's out in the yard, he'll see your mother's blackberry bushes. Seeing the blackberries will remind him of her jam. He'll probably ask you for some. And chances are...if you give him the jam, he'll want a muffin to go with it.
