U.F.O.s Abound

Working on getting the "Sewing & Quilting Mojo" back in gear.  I made a resolution to start nothing new! 
Back when we lived in WV, briefly, I was V.P. of the local guild and newsletter editor.  At the annual picnic we played QUILT-O, I was the first winner and got to pick a prize. With must encouragement I semi-guilt free selected the Moda Fat Quarter bundle. OMG 45 fat quarters of Moda. We had just had our semi-annual quilt show, with many handout patterns, one had stayed at the top of my someday pile - it was perfect!  So, this is the chosen U.F.O., back in progress!

Corner stones are 1"finished, so far I have 15 blocks in progress, about 10 or 11 completely done.  I really thought I might be a crazy to chose this project, with all the tiny strips and squares, but I am totally focused and the world is blocked out.

Time Flys - Stuff happens!

Ok, things have been bad, but today was one of the worst. Simba crossed Rainbow Bridge!
Little Boo Man was 13 on June 9th. He was in a lot of pain, along with several others issues.

(OK - I find this unpublished)
OMG! It has been almost a year since I posted! 
We were not happy the tin can village.
We looked at 30 or 40 brick and mortar, real, houses.
Finally my DDS paid cash for a house we loved, that would fit us. - June
Hubby is wooed away to another school bus company, with great promises.
Meanwhile Hancock Fabrics (FL) goes out of business, crap I don't have a job! - July. 22, 2016  Once you been on the Titanic, you can see when all the leaks start the sinking.  So- I had been filling out applications for another job, for several months.
I had also been at So-fro/Cloth World(TN), when it went down. Next I started at Piecegoods shop, they had just bought Northwest fabrics and came out of a Chapter 11. Boom back into Chapter 13 and taken over by Mae's Fabrics, I cringed. Mae's had been all short piece flat folds, when I shopped at them in Florida.
