Good morning folks. Thanks for the compliments. The quilt came out better than I had ever expected, and I am glad to have it all ready for the longarm, maybe today.
Quossom, it is good to get the machine fixed. I have several here that i can use when one goes to the spa. But my Aria is by far my favorite of all the many machines i have owned over the years. It by far supercedes the HV Diamond machines i have 2 of.. One I keep for doing embroidery work, which it does a wonderful jub, but doesn't get used much, mainly at Christmastime.

Thank you! I moved closer to the windows and the light did help and I have one long side of the binding done. Three to go and it will no longer be in UFO Land.

Everyone is chugging away so nicely on their UFOs! Keep it up!

I'm still piecing my big Burgoyne Surrounded. Whew! It might take me all year, lol! I might take a small break from it and finish a baby wall-hanging UFO. We have been renovating our baby room. It got water damage last summer and the drywall and insulation needed to be completely replaced.. It was quite a disaster. I've never been one of those moms who repaint the nursery and decorate it all baby themed but the other day DH asked me to start thinking about paint colors and trim work designs. I've been having way too much fun on Pinterest looking at nursery ideas! And I'm looking forward to hanging my UFO wallhanging up. So there is my insensitive to finish it.

Good morning everyone, QuiltMom2, looking forward to seeing pix on your finish

Quossum, stay encouraged, just keep yourself busy

Grann of 6, that is a gorgeous piece

I am coming along on a new piece, the weather would not allow me to pick up a UFO from the LA'er. Maybe next week I will be able to pick up and drop off of UFO pieces

Happy sewing day everyone

luvstoquilt: Welcome to this thread. You can still share what you are working on and, when you finish the UFO, tell us about it.

What are you using to try to post? I have an IPad and I do the Go Advanced below and then to the paper clip. It then let’s me choose where/how I find my picture.

Good afternoon everyone, Luvstoquilt, please come on and join us here on the UFO Train, we would love to have you on board with us. That pix thing is not that important, the thing that important is finishing up some of those project that is just waiting to be shared as a finish.

Happy sewing day everyone

I did work on the UFO on my design wall. I sewed 2 sections together. Wahoo. I have an idea for making it bigger but that will probably happen later in the week.

My grandson made his appearance today. Im so excited to be a grandma. He will have a unique birthday date with it being 02/02/2020. He was born at 2:12 pm. Lots of 2s in his birth history. I wont be posting any pictures per my son and DILs wishes. He was 13 days early but weighed in at 7 lbs, 10 oz and is 20 long. He was wrapped in many layers when I held him so I wasnt going to unwrap him to check out his toes and fingers, That can happen later this week, 😊

What a day to have a birthday. Congratulations Gram!

Thanks, oksewglad! It’s still hard to believe I’m actually a grandma.
