    I have been a viewer for the last six months, have figured out most of the family abbreviations on the posts, but still have trouble with initials such as FMQ, UFO,BIL, WIP, and LOL ? I know once you explain the short terms, I will say "I should of figured that out" however, wouldn't it just be easier, for most of us to interput, to type that out long form? Many thanks for all you do to make this newsletter such a great success. I really appreciate all the formation and to the editor who spends so much time to keep us informed.

    FMQ is Free Motion Quilting
    WIP is Work in Progress
    LOL is Laugh out Loud

    Well, not wonder I couldn't remember that one. I don't have a Brother-in-Law, but I do have a SIL who can be a PIA occasionally.
