What this group is about

I don’t know about you, but I have too many things started. Join me in my quest to get finish what I’ve started. The deal is, for every 2 projects I finish, I get to reward myself by starting something new. You can make your own rules, or give the group ideas for new rules as we go. I think it’ll be fun to ask this group for advice on what project to wrap up next, show my progress with photo’s, get motivation from each other when I want to break my own agreement (trust me, I am weak willed when it comes to new projects).

TUFO - means Tuesday UFO - those of us interested try to make a small dent in whatever UFO we are working on. Tuesday is simply the day the Connecting Threads gals get together to sew and craft...you can make it any day you like, but we got a kick out of the title. Once in awhile we can't make it on Tuesday so we move it to Wednesday - yup WUFO. Report here what you are planning to work on, then the next day, let us all know how you did. Nothing is required, it's just for fun.

I LOVE black, white and red. Great job getting it finished after 7 years! It looks great!

I finally finished hand stitching down the binding on a quilt that has been in the works for 7 years!  Once I got it basted, it took me 2 months to get it quilted.  I named it "What Is Black & White & Red All Over?"  This was a BOM I started in 2012 with an internet group I used to co-own.  So happy to finally have it done!

Most of the groups I belong to on this forum have been quiet.  Makes me wonder what is going on.

Wow! It has been quiet in here. I am still here. I haven't been doing much either but I want to. I have finished a few small projects here and there but I think it's time to get back in the sewing room.

Paducah is a neat town.  It was severely flooded in 1993.  After that was dealt with, the city built movable flood walls to keep that from ever happening again.  Those walls have murals painted on them that depict the long history of that city.  My husband & I really enjoyed viewing them as well.  Just a few miles away is the town of Metropolis Illinois, which has a huge statute of Superman downtown.

I'm in California, but my grandson is graduating high school in 2021 and we plan to drive back.  Maybe I can visit it then.  He lives in Michigan.  Sure that we can make a couple of detours on the way!  :D

I've never been to Paducah and it's on my bucket list.  Good to know they need stuff!

I got a message from the National Quilt Museum in Paducah KY the other day asking for donations of anything quilt related.  Fabric, notions, patterns, thread, etc.  They then sell these items to help raise funds to keep the museum going.  I'm seriously thinking about what I can send down there.  All the donations are tax deductible too for those who need that.  My husband & I went there a few years ago when they had a display of quilts made during the Civil War.  He enjoyed visiting it every bit as much as I did.  We went on a Sunday afternoon so it was not very crowded so we could really take our time & look at all the quilts.  In addition to those quilts, they had their regular display up.  If you have never gone, I would highly recommend it.  Fortunately it is only about a 4 hr drive for me so I plan on going again next year.
