As I start my blog it is March 9th and we woke up to -35degrees C. Too cold for March, but we are a hardy bunch! And being house bound allows more time for quilting and that's a good thing. Also the sun is shining. I have spent the past year trying to finish up my UFO's. We had a challenge in our quilt guild to finish UFO's and it did give me a boost to work on them. I have finished several items but now I mostly have big quilts left to do. I love making tops but then am not so good at getting them finished and useable. Can anyone relate to that? I would really like to work on something new again. During the winter months a group of ladies meet every Thursday for a day of quilting or anything we want to work on. One lady usually does cross stitch. We call it 'ladies day out'. It is so nice to get together with friends. I live in a rural area so we have a need to create our own entertainment.
