Hello All ...
Still room here for this wayward PC'er?
Hoping to be back in the saddle and on trails with you again soon.
Looks like I am way behind in more than the blocks.
yeaaaaaaa JanRN on your new acquisition!
Life's too short, so go ahead and ENJOY your new machine! :)
Two fairs the last two weekends ... first one, I just took stuff to it. The second I was there for the week and worked!! :) Another Fair on Thanksgiving weekend (in Canada, that's the weekend after the one coming up). Again, it'll just be a fun one for me and non-working!
I know some of you have already found these threads ....
OKSGlad ... sometimes I think you are running a B+B along with that farm!!! :)
QE--Of course you are still welcome!! I don't know you as well as some, but always enjoy your comments and input! Congrats on the ribbons! Your FW quilt is so very pretty...I don't know that I ever saw it all finished. I really like the gold cornerstones and setting triangles.
I didn't get any sewing done today but was able to cut fabric for 5 more blocks. I have next week's blocks cut so will sew those first and should even have them done "on time". :)
Thanks CarrieM .. so sorry you missed on seeing it before. I left the link in the other thread to the FWS completed thread. YOu can check out all the different FWS results, many of the ladies are PC'ers now too!
So glad ta see ya here again! We missed ya!
We are plannin' ta do a bonus block swap after we are through. Maybe January, maybe sooner. Each o' us (who want ta) will make a block that represents us or where we are from. I plan on puttin' mine on the back o' my PC quilt. Git w/Carrie for the details. It would be awesome ta git a block from you.

Thanks DublB for helping to get me back in the loop!
Yes, bring on the details, Ladies!!
... so what happens?
do we make a number of blocks to trade out to the others? and what about colours? etc. etc.
CarrieM? ... looks like DublB is telling me you are the Mistress of Coordination on this?
LOL Great minds do think alike.:D

It's so neat that your Aunt will let ya help.
Your day wasn't wasted, Ya got ta spend the time tagether & got ta spend time w BIL's cousins. It came out good.

I just wanted to post a quick reminder (which I will try to remember to do every couple of weeks) about the "PC Bonus Blocks". I have seen some of you say on the boards that you want to join us. That would be great! Please be sure to send me a private message with your name/email address so I can send out an email to everyone all at once with my mailing info and details for the "swap".
Here are the basics I posted a couple weeks ago with numbers updated:
We are making 8" blocks.
Not sure yet how many...I will send a final count hopefully by mid-November as we are finishing up the regular PC blocks. My guess is we will need between 10 and 12. (I have heard from 8, 9 counting me so far with info.)
What block design and fabrics is up to you. If you want to do something that will remind us of your location, of you, or of our PC "ride" that would be great. If you want to make all your blocks the same that is fine or if you want to make certain blocks for certain people, that is good too...just be sure to label individual blocks.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks CarrieM ... for sure you can add me to your list!
And I'll send you the PM to make it all official!!!!!!!!
Well it is official, we are up to 10 people signed up for the bonus blocks...YAY! I can't decide what fabrics for sure...I've looked at the novelties some, but want to choose my KT fabric first and then match colors from that.
