    THE FWS PONY CLUB wk 44 Verna Belle's Favorite & Villge School House Discussion Page

    We have 2 weeks left...I don't believe it..I have so much catching up to do...

    The blocks for this week look rather easy even tho there are quite a few pieces...

    I just checked the weather channel and we are bracing for another n'oreaster...this time we'll be getting snow instead of rain...I wanted to venture to Joanns tomorrow...my store is too far away I have 2 others to choose from only about 15 miles away...one just re-opened today...the other is still closed...I just have to make do with what I have....I should be thankful I have what I have....H.

    Easy????? LOL. I substituted for both of these (must have had y seams).

    Stay home and stay safe, Anne. If your stash is anything like mine, you can go shopping right at home. I cleaned my sewing room the other day (took ALL day!) and found fabric I forgot about. Compared to others who have shown pics of their stashes, mine is really small but I still found some "new" pieces.
    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.

    Rediscover your own treasures, Ann, and stay safe...give it time. Holidays are coming and women are the center of the action during this time of the year...with their families which is the way it should be. Count our blessings every morning and smile. Find a way to laugh each day, each hour if you can.

    We left home early this morning to vote and go shopping for farm needs in Kirksville; a neighbor called me to say a deer had tried to clear our fence on YY and had gotten caught in the fence and was dead...which lead to couple more phone calls to alert officials to come 'claim' their deer. Wonderful neighbor lady who called me was not up on our wildlife laws and took me too serious about spliting the venison with her...they pulled the dead corpse off the fence and into our yard before calling me back....no, I said, horrified that they had claimed the deer which is against the law here, a big "NO, NO!" unless you buy a tag...so they pulled it back out to the original place next to our fence on the outside...and there it lays tonight...Deputy Sheriff I talked too may not have contacted the right official yet...they must remove the animal from our small village...it will not smell very good tomorrow...

    Again, we have entertained our area with our unexpected animal event...dear, dear me!!

    Since DH and I meet, never a dull moment...the saga continues today. We should have known when our 1st date was to a Rodeo a week too soon....it was the following week; when the preacher who was to marry us wasn't not there.. Rev. Priest in the small town where we were living and teaching did the service in his home.. .all our children being born in odd numbered years...living in five states that includes Alaska and Texas.

    Mirabelle, I love your 'dusty' tulip block; it has so much character, strength and beauty. A lovely ode that honors Aneal in her Dutch country.

    I forgot to check for the new threads until right now. No exciting stories from here...just normal stuff like housework and school.

    I did buy some KT fabric for my Bonus Blocks this week...will get the novelty fabric when I work tomorrow and start working on my blocks next week. I have narrowed block ideas down to 3 or 4. I just can't decide which one I want to do. It will depend on what other fabrics I pick out.

    Deer me, QNS. I hope it gets picked up soon! Jan, how you must enjoy your clean sewing room. When I finish the valances, that is on my to do. I don't have much space or fabric so it doesn't take much until things need to be tidied up. This week my LQS is celebrating it's 7th year in business with a customer appreciation lunch. I had a quilt to trim up for binding and I had decided to do Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt so I had play day today. I saw many quilting friends, some from as far away as Michigan, did get the quilt trimmed, and was able to find a pretty good selection for the mystery quilt. Now to finish the valances and forget about piecing for a week or so and get some quilting done. Maybe I'll come to like quilting as much as I do piecing if I just do it enough.

    Talking about quilting, I just finished quilting a quilt for my motorhome. It was a mystery (not Bonnie Hunter) I did a year or so ago, but the colors are perfect. All I have to do is the final stitching on the binding, I turned and glued it last night. It makes it sooooo easy to sew when you glue that final edge down! I know the "quilt police" will come and get me, as I sew the binding in the ditch by machine (horrors)! Hey works for me, and I know it won't come apart - besides my arthritic hands do not like hand sewing, they ache enough as it is!

    I'm gonna FMQ 3 practice quilts at the retreat I'm goin' on tamarrow. They are baby size. I'll then donate 'em ta Project Linus. The lady that is hostin' this retreat is head o' a new chapter o' PL. She has some tops so I thought I' git some practice in & some child will git a new quilt. Win,win. Then If I have time I'm takin' several other things ta work on.
