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.

Your towels for sis and neighbor are so fun, Wilma! I have only used minky once and I am a little nervous since my daughter is sending me fabric and minky to do a new cuddle quilt for my grandson. He has worn out his current one. Of course, Grandma couldn't say no!

No Barbara, never got to the Warther museum, but did see a display of his work somewhere once....many, many moons ago.

Made the walker bag from a panel of farm/quilt scenes. It's almost like a purse but straps onto a walker. I love it.

Riana, I love the plants you gave the caterpillar! That was so thoughtful of you!! And, so doggone cute!!!

The Bug quilt turned out so cute, Riana, and I love the DP9 Train quilt. Perfect fabrics. 

Linda, that is a gorgeous walker bag! What a great way to use that panel! 

My dad had a model train set up, too. It was so cool! My brother has them now, but I don't think they have been out of the boxes.

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.
