    My youngest brother just called to tell me my oldest brother died last Friday at the age of 62. We haven't seen each other in years due to family problems. Still it's a very strange feeling.

    Anael I am thinking of you, I understand that strange feeling, especially when they are problems.. Hugs coming your way.

    Instead of a pic of me how about one of my darling DD, I am sure she won't mind. This was taken in her courtyard and I had just finished hemming her dress two minutes before she put it on

    Just think of me as an older version of her, a much older version with lots of grey hair

    Thank you Karen!

    You do have a beautiful daughter. Did you make her dress? You: 20 years older?? LOL

    Thanks for the link! I downloaded the designs, one day......

    Anael, condolences on the loss of your brother. Even with estrangement, it's still a loss. Prayers for you.

    Mirab, what a lovely daughter and her dress is awesome!! And you hemmed it--LOL--I don't think I remember how to hem anything. Any clothing article that needs repair in my house has its own version of The Box That Shall Never Be Opened. Beautiful picture.

    QNS, thank you for the email with pics of such amazing quilts. Are they really made by human beings????? I cannot imagine having that much vision, talent and skill. Think I'll do laundry today instead of quilting; feeling a little humbled by such beauty.

    OKsewglad, thought of you while on FART yesterday. I saw more cows, sheep, and goats yesterday than I've seen in my life. I'm only 40 miles from Pittsburgh; hardly think "farm country" when you think of this area but that's where I was. Also passed a buffalo farm. Buffalo!! Who'd think there were buffalo in this area but there must have been 50 of them from babies to huge!
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    When I was accused of living in a fantasy world I almost fell off my unicorn.

    About the Block ... Forgot to tell the rest of the story ... When I went back on Fri night, the Challenge Coordinator met me with Congratulations that I had won the class!!! I think she was thrilled that I had added the bell to it and did the extra embroidery. No idea as to what tipped the Judge's decision though. They did not have them displayed yet, so I was given the stack of 13 entries to go thru, one by one! That was a nice treat for me. A lot cut out the "wheels" and appliqued them to the background fabric. Many had no reference to the cowbells part of the theme. A couple had beautiful carousel horses appliqued on, with the "wheels" patched onto the horses, like blankets. A couple were simply pieced blocks using the fabrics and the wheel fabric just showed up thru the large patches. One had used a black polka dot addition that really brought out the punch in the block, and some had reds. A cute one had a piece of cow print, covered over by the spotted fabric done as a peak-a-boo block. A couple had appliqued cowbell shapes on top of the blocks. I forget what else. I had hoped for the display to be done so I could do a photo. Darn! Should have asked her to do it and send it to me, as I expect the display will be gone by the time I get there tonight. Now, I have to wait til next year to see the finished quilt!

    JanieW ... Thank you for your part in this winning block. I managed to find a small scale spotted material in a pieces of fabric I had bought for the PC, but never used.

    OKSGlad ... I forgot to mention the added highlight of WDE Exec being from Ames! I'm thinking with all the cross-overs that you will know him. Now you have me wondering what you were EQ creating last night ... of course, it just might help if I were to read the old posts! When do you fly off? Getting excited?

    MiraB ... Thank you ... I wish I had started earlier ... and would have had the time to fiddle and figure, to have the cow right against the carousel, on the top and left sides, without the white background there. Being down to the crunch ... and knowing I wanted to try to get my PC done, I was less interested in the block at that point!

    Anael ... so sorry for you and your loss. It's an odd feeling isn't it ... my MIL died a month ago, and the family did not let me know. The first I knew was when my sister called and was chatting away, and made no sense. I finally asked, what are you taking about? and she back tracked and told me, and added "but your name was in the paper". I wasn't surprised that they did not contact me, though on the other hand, I had hoped they would rise to the occasion and tell me directly, but no.

    MiraB ... Your daughter looks fantastic! How much is she down now? Keep congratulating and encouraging her on her progress, for me. Lovely dress ... was there a special occasion? Again, I bet the answer lies for me in the unread posts! I do like those blocks. Perhaps nicer than last year's set, as they are more unique? Have you started making them yet?

    JanRN ... I bet you acted as the FARM tour guide to your FART'ing friends yesterday. Just think how much the wiser you are thanks to your PC education! Not far from me is a buffalo farm too, and yes, seems odd to see the beasts out on the range ... and less than an hour to downtown TO, as well! Do I have to read the earlier posts to find out about the FART?

    QNSue ... agree with the others. Those quilts are beyond belief!!! Thanks for giving us the link. Just when I'd think I had seen the best, then there'd be another. Can you imagine gasping for air if we'd seen them IRL?

    Beautiful picture, Mirabelle, but a better one would have been the two of you together. Bet you look more like sisters than Mother and daughter!

    Ansel, sorry about your loss. And QuiltE, sorry about your loss as well. Too bad the families did not contact you, Quilte. Their loss, not yours. How well I know your feelings as most of dh's family will have nothing to do with me or our children! Silly to blame me for something I did not do. Mainly, by marrying dh and that I did do. And my SIL will not answer my phone calls or communicate with me, so if DB dies, I will not know it.

    Enjoy the Quilt Canada photos I emailed. DD's bounced back undelivered. Site is www.equilter.com but it was the newsletter I sent everyone to see the pictures. May be on the blog of hers as well. $$$$$$$$$ toward charity just staggers my mind when you see the percentage and how much they have taken in with their business..

    Everyone have a lovely Sunday...
