    Aw shucks, Honchey. I'm so ready to see my pineapple and surprise someone else with a block I just LOVE. It hangs on my design wall and gives me warm thoughts of her whenever I see it.

    Yippee for me I found my Mystery block that I misplaced (not lost). But got a call from a local business today. I put their check and our phone bill check in their envelope and sent an empty envelope to the phone company. Thank goodness it wasn't a switch of checks. So Nancy (don't you love a small town) shredded my phone check and I had to take time to contact "big" phone company. I must be losing it!! Note to self--"Don't do bookwork late at night!"

    DD those pups are sooo cute. They aren't going to stay in that pen for long or are they already starting to climb out? Cattle panels don't hold our pups in--they crawl through the openings. Our Border Collies are about the same age--but a little bit smaller! Some one remarked on the our white pups. In the mother's litter, there were white with a little bit of black collies . Must be a strong trait as the pappa dog has a lot of almost all black on his side. Will soon be finding homes for them--one is already spoken for. Hopefully all will be gone by the time spring really arrives. No citing of robins yet--too much snow down south in QNS country.

    Love how this thread has evolved! We just keep the campfire a burning--but away from the chicken coop!

    Honchey--what do you mean by County Land Preservation? In our wide open space in the Midwest we have not dealt with the issue. If all goes through yes changes are coming your way.

    Jan get better. Someone will see the gem your mother's house really is and they will turn it into a beautiful setting. Enjoy the big FART with your friend! Sounds like a fun time.

    Got our health insurance notice yesterday--a $325 a month raise in premium. Getting close to $1200 month just to have health insurance for the two of us. Good thing I have droppped maternity benefits

    Great news, Honchey , on all events...since I need to do my mystery block yet. Missed our hair appointment cause of the storm, so we go tomorrow. Hope you sell your place if you want too...and be closer to your sister.

    Good Luck to JanRn to sell her mother's place. DD you need to keep one more dog for the gk to play with.

    But today was out of chicken feed and cat feed, and had a wellness doctor's app't...he did not like the sound of one lung, but I knew I was recovering from a sinus problem, so no big concern there. His sister who is an RN works with him, offered me 5 chairs, "not the right color" for their clinic, so we loaded them up too; then gave 3 away to gentleman who runs the feed store in Queen City...his wife might take them to their home; their choice. Eggs all delivered, came back to Queen City gas station, and meet our plumber there that has his PhD in Sh@! or so his wife says, filling up at the station, who had found an extra bale of straw, and he gave that to us. So it was quite a day. Neighbor got her car stuck in her drive, but says her brother will get it out this evening, not to worry. She might take the other two chairs. Cannot move anymore into our house unless something goes out the door.

    Now to fix a meal for grumpy dh...wellness check meant we skipped breakfast; had a quick meal at deli, but he wants more, now.@@!! not later. LOL!!

    Here's what I did today after school with the kids...a new purse for me. It is made from 3 FQs plus the lining fabric. Pictures are Front (pocket under flap), Back (pocket), and Inside (2 more pockets). I put 4 pockets because I don't like everything all together in the middle. I decided I will add a magnetic closure to keep the flap closed.

    Jan--hope your weekend is better than your past couple weeks!

    DD--those puppies sure are cute.

    QNS--sounds like you got lots of things done while in town today. Did you get DH fed and happy again?

    OK--At least you didn't send your mystery block in place of a bill, then they really would have been wondering about you!

    QE--you asked about State archery...it is on this Saturday. The my oldest DD shoots at 2pm and the other 2 kids shoot at 4pm. Next weekend is my March retreat...will be getting ready for that next week so won't be getting much sewing in until I get set up there on Thursday afternoon.

    Very cute, Carrie; love that purse. Got a couple of patterns to try,and my own ideas too. AIL wants one to fasten to her walker or wheelchair...have the fabric and lining fabrics. Yes, I have feed him (dh) his favorite, Kraft Marconi and Cheese.

    Snow is collecting on our roof and sliding downward, more snow is coming down every once in awhile...officially 11 inches here but again its where you measure it that counts. Two different TV stations reported 9 1/2 inches of snow for Des Monies and the other station said 11 inches. Had to go out and take a picture of horizontal icicles...probably will be gone in the morning. Its holding the front door closed so the picture is looking out the storm door.

    I know, OksewGlad, your little puppies are valuable ones; and they are all so adorable. DD, I think your puppies sell pretty good too, and much in demand also. If either of you have one left over, we may need to PM on that subject.

    Oh, the joys of finally getting a hair cut tomorrow!! I am about ready to 'hack' it off!! Or pull it out!! It will feel so much better then...if it is cut properly. Every one take care....a wear a smile on your face!

    QNS, I am with you on getting your hair cut! My lady, I've used for 25 years, has had to retire because of shoulder and hand problems. I am trying to be brave and find someone else, but after 25 years with one person, it is hard to find another that you can just go, sit in a chair, not say a word about hair, and have her cut it to perfection!!!! My neighbor across the street gave me the name of her gal, just have to get up the nerve and try her. I guess that is as good as going to a shop and getting whoever!

    So sorry for everyone who lives in the midwest. We are having glorious 78* weather here. Right now it has dropped to 69*, but really nice weather. My apricot trees are starting to blossom. Hope the fruit holds!

    All this puppy talk has brought smiles galore to my face. Such cute puppies! Our best dog of them all was an Australian Shepherd. Oh gosh was she smart! I see those cute photos and it brings back so many memories.

    We have not heard anything about our SewGrands today. Hope Anael comes in soon, so we can get our "fix"!

    I am working on my Mystery Block. I really like it ..... too bad I have to give it away! LOL I'm going to make a 6" block that matches.

    Carrie - love your new bag. I have a Mini Bow-Tucks that I made over a year ago, I'm thinking about making another in spring colors. They sure wash well in the machine. I just hang it up to dry and I'm off again!

    Glad that Jan surfaced! Hope we hear more from you soon. That FART sounds like so much fun. Hope your mom's house sells soon.

    OKsewglad, Here in NJ it's technically called "Green Acres"....We've had in influx of New Yorkers & North Jersey & Staten Islanders move into our area (Central New Jersey)..we're known as the garden state and our farms were disappearing and becoming housing developments..our schools and infrastructure suffered so the people of NJ voted to preserve as much Green Acres as they could by voting for money to keep the land as it is and no more housing developments...because our home is an older one it will probably br razed... so there won't be any fixing up of anything until we hear that that the price is right!!!

    Honchey--Wow!! You've been busy! Very pretty blocks!!

    Jeanie--your 60s and 70s sound nice. We've gotten snow the last several days. I am thankful that at least it's been in the 30s so not too cold compared to a couple weeks ago when we were under 10!

    I call it mindless sewing and I was very happy doing it!!!! it's the start of a quilt called film at 5?? I didn't need the pattern...it's pretty easy to follow from a photo...the light colored blocks are going to be one big enormous block...maybe it will grow up to be a quilt some day the squares are all from the swap I participated in here on the board...
