I am far slower at quilting than I would like to be and the UFOs have had a winning streak so far. HOWEVER that was BEFORE I found your site Karen!
Now I'm encouraged and motivated to finish started projects then posting a picture of each one. Nice to meet you all! :)

How is your quilting going. I should upgrade my site and add some new photos. Too busy quilting lately and doing quilt related things. Had a wonderful road trip(which we often do with some quilting buddies). Went to Shakespeare, Ont and then New Hamburg (both have great quilt shops). Ended up at St. Jacob's and the Quilt Market, for the Mennonite Week in St. Jacob's. A great Quilting event with an Auction on the Saturday. Always the last week of May each year.
Sandra, I haven't checked in for a long time either, but just found your message from December. Interest about your husband's last name. My husband's father was a cousin to a Millar family in Kincardine, Fife. I have met many of them over there, but must admit that was quite a few years ago. Millar's father was also buddies with his cousin Tom Millar and if you ever get to Kincardine, you will find both of their pictures in the local golf course which they were founding members of. The family homestead was "Helenslea" which has since been sold in Kincardine. Millar's father was Robert Young.
hello girls, wow, i cannot believe that so much time has flown by....
now i can literally say merry christmas!!
Gini, how interesting that your husbands name is Millar, I had never heard it as a first name and yes, my husbands grandfather came from Scotland many years ago and brought the name over. at the time there were only 3 millars in ottawa. interesting coincidence. is your husbands background from scotland too? what am I working on now......hm.....
Linda you were asking the same thing. Well, I've had a twin size blue and white quilt on my Q-snap frame for a long time now, so when I can and feel like it, i turn to that. i would also have some smaller projects, wall hangings ready to go. i really like your idea of 3 projects only at a time Linda. Good plan. I think i'll have to try that.
What are you girls working on?
And do you find that quilting has to take a back burner at this time of year?
For me it has had to be so, since the summer sadly so.
surgeries for my father and son, bad back for me, ect.
new year around the corner, with new plans for less vacuuming and more quilting! sound good?
sorry for the typos girls have a good holiday and look forward to hearing more of your news too.
Hi Sandra thanks for the complinents on my quilts I'm totally addicted to this hobby, I don't work out of the house so that's why I get lots done which is usually in the winter, we get lots of snow. So what are you working on now, to get that UFO pile smaller? One at a time, I decided yrs ago that I could only have 3 projects on the go and could start a new one when one of the three was completed, works for me. Happy Quilting and will be waiting for your pics of finishes.
Happy Thanksgiving to you too. What are you quilting on? Yes, it is a great site, a few months ago I discovered a new friend who turned out to be a very close friend of a fellow quilter who I belong to Block of Month Group with and our local Guild. They surprised me a couple months ago at Guild by both showing up, so we were able to meet for the very first time. Now what a small world that is.
By the way my husband first name is Millar and your last name caught my eye. Has you last name a Scottish heritage as it is an unusual spelling. Be happy to hear what you are quilting? I too have a friend who quilts with a guild, I think it is either in Carleton Place or Almone as I see you are in Ottawa area.
Happy Quilting, Gini Young
