    And you too....QuiltE...and others awaiting in that virtual RV. Joy, the propane tank is filled and we are ready for winter...what ever comes this year. Drought is still a problem....very dry here. First thing tomorrow, we clip wing feathers of 33 pullet hens that are 5 months old. They were determined to scratch out the fall onion garden and did get under the wire that was protecting it...so we clip wing feathers, shut them up in their pen, and re-plant the garden again.

    Oh dear ... the adventures of your flock are never ending!
    I predict and chicken and onion block needs to be made!!


    This weekend is our Thanksgiving here in Canada.
    The last Fair which means my entries go in on Thurs night or Fri morning. Will likely go back on Fri night to see how I made out. Thanksgiving Dinner with my "adopted" family on Saturday night. Back to the Fair on Monday for the 4-H Beef Show (friends kids will be showing) and to pick up my entries.

    Sure am hoping amidst that to re-acquaint myself with my sewing machine!

    Thanks OKSGlad ... FWS is going, also Monty, the BCS quilt top and a few other things. This is on somewhat home turf, and so I do hope my luck continues, but I'm not counting on anyting!

    No blocks for me....yet! Plan for the day is school, laundry, sew!! I didn't sew yesterday as originally planned (had to take dh for some tests--all if fine), however I did get the papers off all 40 if my completed PC blocks yesterday! It was a big job, but one I am glad is done. I have a retreat in a three weeks and my goal is to get the last 25 blocks that I need for my 2 quilts finished so I can work on sashing at the retreat.

    QuiltE...it's so good to have you back in the saddle and observing. Can't wait to see what your sewing machine has been storing up this past couple of months. I bet it will sew you such beautiful things as a reward for getting it going again. BTW, do you have a name for it?
    QNS...you're ready for winter early. I hope that doesn't mean it will come early. We've finally got the final underlayment on the roof...each time we quit we had to put up temporary tar paper so the porch wouldn't get rained out...and now it's raining without any drips inside. Hooray! Now it just has to clear up enough to get the last layer of roofing on. Then we can think about putting the garden and yard to bed for winter. The leaves haven't started falling in earnest yet so that will be a couple of weeks at least. I have about half of my PC blocks on my design wall and have started to figure out my setting block. Everything has to be rearranged for color balance but maybe I can have a couple of pictures for you guys next week. This thing has taken on a life of it's own and nothing else in my sewing room is getting done.

    Thanks GGal ... observing is all I can say for now ... better than not, though. I feel so out of the loop and haven't read any of the back threads in forever!!!!! The first thing I'll be doing when I get back to the sewing room will be a list ... must do, need to do, should do, want to do ... you get the picture! The unforunate part is the want to do's will get put on the back burner for the must do's. All about deadlines and priorities. In my "adopted" family, I have a new Grand Niece that needs a quilt and of course, Christmas is coming and some must do's for that. PC? the must do part of that will be the Bonus Blocks and I vow they will be done on time! I've even been thinking of the pattern and think I have that figured out already ... we'll see how many times I change that thought, before they are made!

    I smiled when you wrote ... "The leaves haven't started falling in earnest yet" ... same thing here! They are in their not-quite-the-showiest state right now. The hills where there are masses are showing quite pretty and hopefully this weekend everyone can enjoy them for Thanksgiving. That being said, rain is making a guest appearance ... and sadly with rain, the leaves may start a tumbling before they are at their finest.

    Yes, holidays are coming on; turkeys are gobbling at every little sound. Dh decided the pullets wings needed trimming, so he goes out at 5 am this morning to clip each of the 33 pullets himself and gets himself locked in the hen house!! Thanks a wire off the feeder, he gets himself out again. As he clipped wings, he put them outside...except one dark cornish pullet flew over his head and back into the house again. One of them laid an egg last night, 'causing a riot in the hen house. Dh thought a 'coon was after them and hollered to me to help. Luckily the flashlight revealed no coon, or cause for the disturbance, except an egg in the nest.

    Dh got his 1200 rpm blender and is really enjoying it. His cousin's wife gave me red sweet vinegar to put out in a jar lid to kill our many fruit flies we have in the house...and I showed it to dh. But when he was blending up his juices, he seen that on the counter thought it was a juice, ignored the fruit flies and poured the whole thing, into his blender. I did come along and ask, "Where is the red wine & fruit flies that was here?" thus saving him from drinking it.

    That's my stories for the week...have a good one everyone...may every one get all caught us with us on the last four weeks...eight weeks to go!!
