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.

Beth, I hope it all works out well for you.  Sounds like a good thing. Won't be on for a few weeks. We'll be out of town.

Mary, I wonder if someday we will have larger drones for people travel. If so, Riana and I could pop over for the sew-in. lol Maybe a hot air ballon would be cheaper. ha ha!!

Did you ever  notice when you put the words 'The' and 'IRS' together, it spells 'THEIRS'

Hi ladies, just popping in to say hello.  Busy but not getting much done it seems.  Finished some UFO tops last weekend and just one more this am.  Getting the tops done but not any quilting.  After I finish Deanna's quilt and this other customer quilt, think I will put a couple of mine on the machine to get them done. 

Considering taking one day a week off work, reducing my hours to 32 at work, and have that one day at home to just get things done.  Wonder how the hubby will take that and if the boss will let me do it for just a couple months at least.  Work has gotten slow anyway.  We will hope and pray.

I love those ideas Riana.  I could also move some fabric out that way too.

Mary, maybe you should invite some others over for a sew-in. lf not quilts, then maybe comfort cushions for masectomy patients, colorful pillow cases for shelters etc. You'd give all the machines a nice workout while benefitting community:) We have several oldies here at Water Oaks, donated by those  moving or by family of deceased...the oldest one, a Kenmore sews as smoothe as glass. No fancies on this baby, but it's the one l head for every week.

I'm feeling so noble...Yesterday I cleaned all cupboards and drawers in sewing room (except the stash closets).  Throwing out a big black trash bag and have big pile to give to the quilt show rummage sale.  But the room looks the same and just as crowded. 

Today I'm oiling and running the fleet of sewing machines, to make sure they are all running well.  I really only use 3 regularly, and the other 5 get their feelings hurt.  I do feel guilty having all this wealth, I lend them out-but people want the new ones with all the bells and whistles.  Guess what, my old ones will run forever. (The only ones I bought for me are the hand crank, treadle, and featherweight).  The others were gifts from special people.

Love it Barbara, that is a good one.

We have snow/rain mix this am.  No accumulation thank goodness, but the moisture is nice.  Planted a few things in the garden and this weather will help get it to growing.  My indoor starters are up in less than a week!  Thrilled I am.  Tomatoes and peppers aren't wanting to come up yet, so may have to buy those.

H:I Barbara,

It's been snowing every morning lately - but not staying around.  No snow this morning.  We have occasionally had snow for Mothers' Day  in Ottawa since I have lived here.  If I can open my balcony door and shake out a rug it's Spring for me.  We can't open the balcony door all Winter - I think that it would break.  But I've switched to a quilted jacket instead of my heavy parka.

So, how's the diet going?

Not good. I had eggs for breakfast.

Nice to see the Lilac bushes and leaves on the trees.  Nothing is blooming in Wisconsin yet and no leaves yet. I did put the Geraniums out on the porch to get more sun.

Easter wishes to all.  Big lazy snow flakes falling on the lilac bush this morning.
