    THE FWS PONY CLUB Wk 21 Blocks Gold Nuggets & Gretchen Discussion Page

    Another week is upon us and I did get a block done for this week..YAY!!! I decided to dedicate Gold Nuggets for all of the "cow"pokes riding this trailride...I didn't want to have a multitude of fabrics in it so I decided to make a landscape alaQNS !. I hope y"all like it....on another note...I really haven't been feeling great of late....I think it's that nasty Fibromylagia??? It's so hard for me to move around plus I fell on my a_ _ last week when I tried to move the end of a reclining love seat that was out of line with the wall...I pulled on the bottom of the sofa instead of the end where the armrest is and the foot part jumped out and scared me off my feet and fell backwards on MY bottom and then proceeded to hit my head..I can thank the LORD for the carpet on the floor. I don't know if it's the weather and my buddy "Arthur"itis of if it's the other...I'm still not caught up with reading all the pages but I feel I'm on my way...The family situation is easing a bit and I'm dealing better with it.....Thank You, all of you, for being so patient with me....you guys are the best!!! H.

    Honchey--I can't wait to see your block. Glad you felt up to at least sewing one. So sorry to hear of your fall...take care to heal up before doing too much this week!!

    I said yesterday I had to do Gold Nuggets twice...the 2nd time it went together much easier!!

    Glad you are feeling better Honchey. I fell over my own two feet twice in the last two weeks; good news was I did manage to "pull" myself up both times but the fall was hard and did shake me up a bit.

    My best friend has that Fibermylagia since she was divorced at 28 with 3 kids depending on her; and she never missed a day of work for 23 years of work, even though she drove about fifty miles each day to get to her job and back home again. I don't know how she did it. Now she has the small veins into her heart that closes down and she has to take nitro quick and wait quietly for 3 minutes to see if it eases down...if not she needs to go to the nearest medical center fast...she also had her left knee replaced and was down for 6 weeks with that. And is diabetic.. But loves to quilt and has taught me so much about quilting. Love her sense of humor and love of life.

    Chickens get to move into the top floor of the A-frame tomorrow. So then we can push them out into the sunshine during the day.

    Honchey ... so sorry about your Humpty Dumpty on your aRM ... it was your arm, right? *giggles*. I'm glad for you that you can see things easing up a little re your difficulties. I'm sure it felt oh so good to do that one block. And so good of you to continue to put the weekly threads up.

    QNSue .. my oh my how big they are getting!!! BAby Huey, really is the star of the group, looking so pristine and white!

    OMG how those "babies" have grown. LOL

    Honchey, so glad your life is turning itself around. Life always seems to go that way! I always used to tell my kids "life is NOT a bowl of cherries", you will always have trials and tribulations all through it at one time or another.

    QNS, thanks for showing the ducks & turkeys. That is something I didn't raise. They really grow fast.
    Right now I'm getting juice ready for some black raspberry jelly. That is the only way I can eat raspberries. I can't eat any seeds.
    Honchey, happy to know things are getting better with you, sorry you fell, I fell 6 years ago and had a cast on my right arm and a soft cast on my right ankle. Then ended up having surgery on my hand. I have a friend that has fibro also, she has had a very hard time, but medication is finally helping her. Not fun.

    My DD has fibro also. She has 2 kids & some day's has a hard time even gittin' out of bed. Another note about DD is that she is certified ta teach English in TX (She lives in FL right now.) She hates it when I type w/my TX accent.Talk about role reversal!

    Ducks are down in number by 2; our guess is that a 'coon got in last night and got the two black ones by their feet...killing one and leaving the other alive with one leg. Never dressed out a duck before, but just saving the one breast. Double D. Now trying to think to how to protect them better. Heart broken of course.
