Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I was with a group that did a queen size one for a rafle for a church. We did sew them by hand, but I really hate hand sewing :( Then everyone bailed out on me before it was done and I had to complete it myself. Someitmes people give their word and don't really mean what they say! It was done at last and raffled off, but never again!
Oh, yeah! Avon boxes are awesome. I think they're great, especially since they have a lid that fits well. They hold a ton! I do believe they are the only things I ever received free from Avon when I sold. I used to have Avon boxes coming out my ears! (NO, not literally). I still have a few in the basement with stuff in them.Originally Posted by quiltingmimipj

My DD wants chickens. I keep putting it off because DH would have to build a coop. He doesn't need to start anything else right now! LOL!
Debbie thats a lot of color for one little block. :-) nice colors.!
BCA you must be in the country. I grew up rural. Mom raised chickens when I was in first grade. Dad raised pigs during that time. we also had a few horses and some cows. And a Shetland pony I rode one time and he brushed me off up against the barbwire and stepped on my arm. I LOVE the country :lol: :? My Mom's sister had a rooster that chased cars. Or motorcycles. really anything that moved. Everyone was afraid of that thing except Aunt V. I think he slept with her! :roll:
You gave me my giggle for the day. What a picture! We had a cow that thought it was a dog. We would walk her on a tether, and when we got back to the yard she would roll over with her legs up in the air, wanting to get her belly scratched.
I was raised on a farm also had a pet pig that though it neede to go to school. everyday mom would have to get on the bus to get the pig off. As for leading calves and cows around the dogs when youngest sister was 4 she brough one of the calves in the house up the satirs to ask mom to put its rope on her so she could play. Mom was suprised when she turned around from making beds and saw the calf standing in the middle of the room. I think the most upsetting thing to Mom was when our bunny desided to have her babies in the box where she keep her stash. I still don't think that rabbit ran away.
Thank you ladies! I have had my smile already this morning. You've brought back a lot of great memories. It's going to be a great day, I can tell!!! :D
We are a great group, aren't we? Where else can the topic go from Pizza boxes to cows that want tummy rubs, all in the same thread???!! :lol:
