    THE FWS PONY CLUB WK 23 Home Treasure & Ice Cream Bowl Discussion Page

    Hi Everyone, This week is a much anticipated milestone for those of you at the halfway point. Blocks 45 & 46 seem to be on the easy side to piece..I just don't like the idea of the inside corner points in Home Treasures .... I'm almost done with Ice Cream Bowl. I'm naming it Baskin Robbins 38 flavors....You'll understand why when you see it....
    I'll be posting the thread for the Half way milestone next week..this way you'll have a few more days to get them done...
    Here are a few letters...I neglected to add them the last 2 weeks....H.

    Letter # 12 Dorothy Biebighauser, Washington County, Minnesota
    Block Indian on Horseback

    Dorothy F. Biebighauser was born on September 26, 1901, in Washington County,
    Minnesota. Her parents were named George (b. 1874) and Adaline (b. 1875.) Some
    of the family's census records were poorly written. Her sibling, two years
    younger, was named Corrine (a girl) in the 1910 census, or Corwin (a boy) in the
    1920 census. Her letter and photograph on page 27 clears up the mystery. Her
    sibling was a boy, most likely named Corwin. Dorothy also had a baby sister,
    Florence, (not pictured)who was one year old when "Freckles" the pony joined the
    family. Dorothy died on December 6, 1987, just a few miles from where she was
    born. Her last name did not change, so it is quite likely that she ever married.


    Letter # 13 Avery & Orie Knight, Chickasaw County, Iowa
    Block Boy's Playmate

    I was very surprised to find out that Avery and Orie Wright were not twins. In
    fact they were more than two years apart in age. Avery was born on June 24,
    1900, and Orie was born on September 24, 1902. In the 1920 census, their
    parents, William and Carrie are 49 and 47 years of age respectively. They were
    also the parents of ten children ages 3-22. And if that isn't interesting
    enough, they were all boys! While I was feeling sorry for Mother Carrie who had
    no female help in the house, I checked the 1910 census. Avery and Orie's parents
    were actually the parents of 13 children, but by 1920 the three eldest had moved
    out of the family's home. The oldest was a boy, and the second and third
    children were girls for a total of eleven sons and two daughters. Avery and Orie
    were middle children, sixth and seventh in line.

    I can find no records of Avery after the 1920 census when he was 20 years old,
    but I did find a death record for Orie. He died while living in Sun City,
    Arizona, in 1981 at the age of 79.

    I did Home Treasure and substituted Ice Cream Bowl with Gladie's Mariner's Compass. I counted blocks today and am at 28...not quite 45, but I am getting there. I have fabrics cut for 7 more blocks and papers cut/measured for all the others up to the current ones. I feel pretty good about my current progress. As long as my headaches and backaches don't slow me down I should be able to keep catching up...or at least not get any further behind!

    Thanks for the story letters Honchey ... I'm not going to read them now, but later when I have a bit more time to take them in. It's so good to see you back with us and sounds like perhaps you have more of your joie de vie too!

    I've been MIA somewhat lately too, and getting behind on my blocks. The milestone markers are a good help to nudge me into action, so I don't get too far behind ........... then yesterday, another project resurfaced and into the priority mode. UGH! Oh well, it's one I need breaks from at times, so those breaks aka rewards just might be a block here and there!

    Finished my blocks for this week early so spent a whole day sorting my blocks and sewing the sashing strips on. I now have my blocks pinned together in their respective rows. I hope I have enough fabric for the next 44 blocks I have also started next weeks blocks I am not going to do the pony blocks as it just won't fit my fabric so I hope you like the block I have substituted.

    The next few weeks may be a little hectic for me so heres hoping I can keep up, (will be moving my DS into his new home)

    Thanks Anne for all the info you share with us and for keeping us in line. Halfway??? Wow!
    I'm so excited and have to share with you all. I'm going on a FART today! This is the first time my friend & I (whose mother is also in a nursing home) have a day to ourselves. We haven't gotten together since March, my Discover card balance is "0" so look out fabric shops LOL. (Of course, I feel guilty but I'll get over it). I think I know what I want to use for sashing so hope to be able to share it with you tonite.
    I'm anxious to see if anyone pieced Ice Cream Bowl with templates rather than paper piecing. If so, I bow to you!
    I'm off!!!
    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.

    MiraB ... I'm sure you win the prize for having the first 45 all done!!! I can't wait to see your milestone grouping complete with all your sashings. I'm sure it'll be breathtaking.

    JanRN .... hip hip hooray for your FART. Have a FUN and quilty-spendy day with your friend. We'll look forward to hearing/seeing all about it!
