    Hello Jenniky - nothing like working with colour to lift your spirits - hope you feel a bit brighter soon.

    Meanwhile today I'm doing the binding on the wall hanging...

    This will give me incentive to do a wedding quilt (log cabin in RW&B) for a friend who is captain in U.S. Air Force and 70th birthday quilt for friend who is retired chief petty officer in Coast Guard. Does it count if I finish two quilts for the Veterans Hospital? They just need quilting.

    Welcome. Sounds like you are planning to be busy. You bet it counts if you finish two quilts. That's a big part of this, encouraging people to finish things up or start new things.

    Would love to see pictures.
    Working for a living interferes with fun, but it pays for it.

    I was planning to do the patriotic challenge, then when looking thru my stuff for inspiration, I found a kaleidascope I started while I was having to stay 2 extra weeks in Ohio this spring and got all inspired to work on it again. Hope I get back to a patriotic item again.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    I don't think we have a deadline here. Do one then the other.

    So sorry your dd will be living farther away from you. I know how that is, not easy.My heart and prayers go out to you. Did she move there for college or a job??My daughter and her husband moved to Colorado when our first granddaughter was only 4 months old--for 14 long months. Fortunately they didn't like it there and moved back to California and live 25 minutes from us. We used skype almost everyday-that helped.

    Looking and touching fabric can definitely take your mind off things. Sewing helps even more, that is for sure. You've also got all of us quilting phanatics!!!

    nHello, I stumbled in here the other day and, wow what a great surprise. Now here is the thing. My daddy is 73 and he wants me to make him a quilt. So I think it should be a quilt that is about him. And anyway I want to do a patriotic quilt. He served 37 yrs in the Navy, What I am looking for is a Emblem for the Navy, or the Supply Corp Navy. And guess what I can not find one. But I know that they are out there cause I have seen it with some of your quilts. Can one of you please tell me where I can find them.
    Thank you in advance Audrey (wanabquilter)

    Go to Image Google and type "Emblem for US Navy" or "Emblem for Supply Corp Navy".
