    That ole Buck bucked the greenhorn duke off every morning all summer long; the duke never gave up, and Ole Buck never failed to throw him over the fence. Until the morning a young pretty gal shows up and rides him first...and Ole Buck was a gentleman prancing around the corral with her, never offered to buck or crow hop with the lady on his back. Greenhorn Duke gave up, and let the ladies of the ranch ride Ole Buck. End of block tale for the week.

    Thanks for the memories this past week PC riders....and JanRN great news of a LA in her house, then she shows us a picture of her house and a snow storm that cooled all of us off, and brought more memories to the ride. Wonderful week.

    Who else has their block done for the week?

    Yinz have given me so much encouragement--thank you. I really wasn't sure about the Sweet 16 but thanks to all of you I have no buyer's remorse. Now I need to keep practicing--I made some pretty good loopy loops today LOL. I posted my blocks; they were not quilted on new machine--I have a ways to go before I dare try something important. Glad everyone has been chatting again this week. Seems last week was quiet; I need my morning PC thread visit with my tea every day!

    Had some good news about Patches today (finally). He's been so sick all week. We took him to the vet and he said he just has an upper respiratory infection, treating with antibiotics. He has very little feeling in left hind leg but his other 3 legs are strong enough for him to get around and over all he's fine. He's had 2 doses and seems better already. Keep your fingers crossed. This has been going on since January.

    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    Jan--wishing a speedy recovery to Patches. My dog Silk (9 yo) has had a tough summer with the heat. Those darn border collies have a extra layer of hair close to the skin--keeps them warm in winter, but hot in summer. So this has been hard on her. The delightful fall weather and she's perking right up again.
    I am hoping to get back to PC soon, Maybe next week. Tomorrow my DS and BIL drive in on their way back to PA from WA state. Getting some last minute cleaning done, and then washer decided to have a mind of its own again. GRRRR. Problem solved but behind so off I go to get the dining room and kitchen floors mopped, And yes they need to be done--all sorts of dirt and grime on them. Probably won't hear from me until after Friday when the house is quiet once again. Night all.
    Don't worry spider.

    I agree, QNSue...a wonderful week. I was missing the chatter last week. Jan, I'm glad you're enjoying your new toy. I can only imagine what you will come up with. Good news about Patches...and I loved the snowy picture.
    OKSewGlad...enjoy your company and clean floors. There is a different kind of dirt when living on the farm and it all seems to collect where the traffic goes. Your kitchen and dining room are well used!
    Mirabelle, I'm going to look up that Leah Day site. Quilting designs are a new adventure for me and quite intimidating.

    Hello All!

    I have been busy in the clubhouse yesterday and today. Didn't get this week's blocks done, but I did get caught up with the "Rosie" blocks (4 of them) now that I have fabric I like. Tomorrow and Friday I plan to do some more PC blocks...not sure yet if I will just cut for the last few blocks or sew ones already cut. Thinking I will cut so I can sew WITH you all instead of always being behind!

    I've enjoyed the chatter too! So much fun getting to know you all a little better...off to look at the new block thread.

    I ordered the fabric from Hancocks o' Paducah for the attic windows. I intend ta do this on these blocks instead o' sashin'. Well it's on back order. I wanted it ta go through the bank right away. Talk about frustratin'.

    Great minds think alike....BB...I am doing attic windows around my PC if I last...doing 90 of them is a bit of work....but I like the 'leather' frame look for each of them. May not have enough material and that would not make me happy. Or having it go to back order...so I can understand the thoughts...you could cancel and order from elsewhere...

    Oh, dh Aunt had decided now I can mend her lap quilt that is torn on the back side since I made her memorial quilt for her...no good deed goes unpunished...and BIL was not at home yesterday after we drove the distance for our last tomatoes of the season and took him sweet potatoes and walnuts. Wasted a whole day, bright spot was using our picnic basket to share with his cousin & wife...who are currently building their haunted house for Halloween paying visitors..
