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.

Congrats, Barbara and Marilyn.

About two years ago my friend Marilyn brought me over some fabric and asked if I could help her make a table runner with shells on it. So I went to the Embroidery library and picked out some sea shells. And made it into a table runner. and Guess What!! We won 2nd place in a shell contest. I was so surprised.

Nice Riana.  Love the quilting.

Riana, the quilt is done and you did a good job finishing it!

This is a UFO from the quilting group here, meant as a lap quilt for hospital. No batting...drove me crazy trying to fmq it. Next time I'll just use the feed dogs & sid...

But I did get to practice some Shitake quilting on it!

Oh Mary, I can so relate ... currently we have two rescues, two of which are aging rather quickly.  Joe (cocker) is now about 17, getting more and more bumps on his head / body and deaf (or is it selective male hearing?), but will still play with anything he can.  Lady, a female beagle we adopted from our driveway, is againg rather quickly as well it seems.  I don't know that I could 'foster' as you are, but it is a wonderful thing to be able to do ... 

I haven't gotten into doll clothes yet but I can see it in my future .. however, I am making a granny square afghan .. and finishing that last block on that UFO afghan   lol 

Have a great week all ~  <sneaking back to work, again>

What a compassionate pair you and Paul are, Mary! Your community is so blessed to have you.

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
