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.

Mary, it must break you heart when a foster pet has no chance of survival.Giving Bumper a fun time as long as he's alive is such a special gift. God bless you and Paul.

Karen and Rogue, don't forget to look for free knitting and crochet patterns for the dolls on the internet.  I had great luck doing those.  There is even a site for some of the original dolls costumes.  I have a break just now between the two GDs.  One has outgrown her dolls, and the next isn't quite ready.   My "Josephina" hasn't had an outfit change in two years! 

Had a tick dug out of the skin on my collarbone today.  Only 12 cases of Lyme a year in this county...but I still opted for the medium level precautions.  I have been doing too much dog hugging.  Bumper (the yellow lab foster who had a massive tumor taken out before Thanksgiving) is now maintaining quality of life with prednisone and appetite enhancers.  The cancer spread to his lungs, we have maybe 6 weeks left with him.  It feels like he has been with us forever... As long as he wants to play chase the ball, we will do whatever we can.  Paul takes him on every errand, and they stop for burgers(Bumper likes double stars at Carl's).

Had a snow/ice day here and though I thought I would sew, Doug was home too, so I cooked instead.  Made him some of his fav cookies he has been dying for, some sourdough batches for a loaf of bread, a pizza dough to freeze, dinner for tomorrow in the crockpot, and the last loaf was a french that I divided in half in two french forms so I can make sandwich rolls for my tuna sammich :)

I finally sat down to sew ~~ working on the horse curtain quilt .. am on the last TWO star blocks .. all pieces made and the last 6 seams ~~ woo hoo.  Now to cut sashing and start to assemble rows.

Our fantabulous quilter has my cabin and will be working on it this weekend ~ am soooo excited.  She is thinking hard of the designs it will have ~~ we picked thread yesterday <dancing a jig!>

Now back to the sewing machine ... tomorrow I have to go back to work, but it is FRIDAY ~~ not many times we get a mid-week mini vacay   LOL

At our new place in Fla., Karen , we have a cabinet that holds the satelite tuner & vcr and has an electric "fireplace" in it.

Thank you all!  It is fun and fairly quick to get done.  I have several clothes patterns and yes...the GD are playing with the cabbage patch wardrobe I made 30 years ago!!! 

Riana, yes that is a TV on a TV and has been that way over a year.  The bottom one doesn't work but we can't seem to decide what we want to get to put the new one on.  Someday we might agree on what it will sit on!  (it also weighs a ton!!!)

Great job, Karen! That coat is sooo cute!

Comment by Riana Noyes on March 5, 2015 at 7:06am

Karen, the doll's coat is grandd plays with her mom's old Cabbage patch dolls, who still have a lot of the homemades l did for them 30 yr. ago,lol.

But l just have to ask, the photo, is that one tv on top of another? Does your newly retired hubby watch 2 games at once?

Great coat, Karen!
Love your mini, Rogue.

Very cute doll coat, Karen. Great job on the knitting.I made dresses and night gowns for my 3 Gd's, for the Heidi Ott dolls. I like the Heidi Ott dolls, they look a lot like the American girl dolls but the torso is stuffed which makes it more of a cuddly doll. They are 18"  dolls and have real hair. I have three of them myself and use them as models. Mine are in their original clothes and the Gd's have the homemade clothes. There are so many beautiful patterns for the 18" dolls that are even nicer than what they came in.
