Your comment above may me smile. I learned quickly to keep the hand quilting project near my living room chair. When I settle in for a movie, I grab my hand quilting piece and away I go. Can dedicate my other sewing time to working on another UFO. For me this works and I get two or sometimes three projects done in the same amount of time. https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images/smilies/boy.gif

cherrybsixty: Thanks and I have 20 more on my design wall in a diagonal setting. I need to make the side setting and corner triangles yet. The last 4 blocks will go into a quilt top with orphan blocks and/or cut squares from my church group.

entangled: Thank you. I wish I enjoyed handwork. I used to do some cross-stitch, embroidery, crocheting, and knitting. One day, I hope to try some big stitch quilting.

Thanks, Rob. I know you can tame this Lepidoptera,

Sweet sampler, retired teacher.

That would be ideal, WMUTeach! My house is still chaos, with two teens who are lovely about snuggles still, but it means I have no personal space. (Also, I am infamous for causing injury to my family because I've left out craft supplies; two of us have been impaled by knitting needles!)

I re-learned how to size and upload my photos for this platform. Voila, here are my three finishes for 2020:

Ooo..... I love that bear! Super cool.

Good work, Entangled. Keep pressing forward. Your space will clear out eventually and leave you feeling terrific, accomplished and empowered! Wink, wink!

Pretty quilts, entangled!

Lovely finishes, entangled.

Lovely finishes Entangled, question: how did you get the pictures to adapt to regular size?

Not getting much accomplished today

Stay safe everyone

Thanks so much, everyone! It feels good to share with other quilters. It's been too long.

Cherrybsixty, I'm not sure if I know the right answer, but this is what I did. I uploaded the pics to an album in my QB profile using my laptop (and three attempts at resizing before the files were the right size to be allowed). In the album, you can click on the photo and get a URL. I copied that URL and when I chose Insert Image in my post, there's a place to paste the URL and see the image preview, which takes a beat to appear. I just messed around until stuff worked -- hopefully that will work for you too! Let me know.
