January 22 2008 Quilting Newsletter


Hi fellow quilters, It's Wednesday so another newsletter arrives on your computer. I do hope it finds you happily busy with your needle.

Life has returned to good old routine and last Sunday I posted my first article for 2008. It's titled Unfinished Objects - UFO's Quilters Take Heart - UFO's are a Positive Learning Experience.

UFO'S. We all have them. Should we finish every project we start. How do quilters deal with their UFO's? Here's the link: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art23590.asp


This article is about UFO's (Unfinished Objects), which seem to come with the territory of a quilter. I don't think I've ever, ever come across a quilter who doesn't posses at least one UFO (if she's telling the truth). It's not uncommon to hear quilters talking about thier UFO's in hushed tones with a certain element of guilt attached to the discussion.

My article, I hope will blow that attitude right out of the water!! Life is for living, not regretting! I've given UFO's (or Works in progress) a great deal of thought, especially over the past few years where I've encountered some very serious life experiences. I'd really like to share with you how my current attitude to UFO's has evolved, and how I deal with the issue these days.

I've written this particular article in two parts. The second part of this article will be posted on Sunday 27th January 2008.

I've posted a forum on the forum website for you to contribute your opinions about UFO's, and how you deal with them. I'm sure many, many quilters would be interested to hear how you feel about this issue.
Here's the link to the forum:

My gift to you this week is an interesting poem. This is a poem I've had in my journal for many many years and as far as I can ascertain, it's Anonymous and copyright free. I do hope you enjoy it.

Patchworkers

Patchworkers are a different breed,
The things we hope for, the things we need, We wish for fabric to finish that row, We sometimes wish our guests would go.

We wish all day for that time to be
That special time - that time for ME.
Each needle is threaded, the colours arrayed, Scissors and pattern have been carefully laid.

Now we relax, this is our pleasure -
Stitching this piece of soon-to-be- treasure We always ignore that mental warning - Stitching all night makes it rough in the morning.

But times' unimportant, we don't heed the clocks, We just need fabric and a sewing box.
Our project awaits us, now we proceed,
This must be Heaven - what more do we need!

Author Unknown.

Well, that's all from me this week, talk to you again soon.
Cheerio for now, and remember have fun quilting.
