    CarrieM, your chrysanthemums are darling in your Boys Playmate block! So very Fall. I love how you used color in your DP9. Any boy would love that quilt!

    Lovely Boy's playmate, Carrie with nice contrast.
    Sweet simple baby quilt, too.
    In the midst of getting mini quilt workshop ready for my guild for tomorrow. Supposed to have 4 " of snow tonight, but be done by morning. Ah winter so unpredictable.

    QE--Oh no not the CASE for a mere 4"! More like the Chevy Silvarado Diesel HAHA. Actually my front wheel drive car will do just fine if they haven't plowed roads, but when you are on the bus route roads, the roads get plowed!! I'll see if I can translate off cuff program to something understandable.
    We score cows on Friday, too. Now let's see if anyone else besides you and me know what that means!! If not will enlighten you all later. Must get back to bill paying--milks check came and wolves are yapping at the door!!!

    OKSGlad ... I think we should put out a challenge to these folks!!

    OK All The Rest of Ye?? ... let's see how smart y'all are ... translate OKSGlad's .... "We score cows on Friday" .......

    Figure that one out and the winner will get ............ I'll come up with an appropriately related prize!!!!

    We'll let you have til then .... unlesss you're quick out of the starter gates and get it all figured out!

    Oh my goodness, talk about culture clash. Hmm if we get snow the next day it melts, then freezes, & you gotta have a 4x4 to drive on the ice. The whole town shuts down. It happens so seldom that we are usually shocked. What's so funny is we've had 3 such snows this year! I think the most in 1 yr, for the last decade. (Last winter we got no sleet, rain or snow all winter, then no rain till the next Oct.
    We score cows on Friday????????????? I've got no clue!

    Jeanie, sound right to me. We had an auction on Friday's so if a cow "scored" low for too many Fridays, she went to market! We had beef cows so part of her score was if she calved when she should have and the calf thrived.

    Thanks all for the nice comments on my block and baby quilt. I have a retreat the 2nd weekend in March and my friend Crystal and I should be able to get lots of our PC blocks caught up...at least that is our goal! Not sure if I will be able to get any more done before then...

    We got about 1.5" snow last night but it was already melting when I got up this morning (6)...it is almost 40 degrees at 8am! I too would just drive over 4" of snow...living in Iowa if you had to clear snow all the time you wouldn't want to go anywhere. I am thankful for the "light snow" winter we have had since the last several years we have had LOTS and LOTS of snow!!

    And to think that OKSGlad hasn't been back this way!

    Welllllllllllllll ... your googling has given you correct but not correct info!

    Yes, Body Condition is an important tool/technique used by dairy (and beef) farmers in assessing their cattle. It's kind of comparable to BMI for humans.
    .............butttttttttttt.............. that's not the meaning of OKSGlad's comment about Friday!!!

    Soooooo
    Ladies .... If at first you don't succeed, try try again ... and then try again some more!



    OKSGlad .... Good Luck tonight at Guild ... and on Friday for u-know-what!!!

    I know you are all over at the new photo thread checking out new lovelies, but just to let you know went to town and back --only a couple of inches not the predicted four. Warm enough day today and most of it's gone replaced by "Mud, glorious, mud!" NOT.

    I had a fun day with 8 other quilters showing them how to sew a mini quilt! Just a delight to be with these ladies.

    Good Google sleuthing Jeanie and ArteEm, but as QE says it has another meeting in dairy world.

    I am going to get caught up.

    I modified Broken Heart so the flying geese would be an even measurement and I love the star it made in the middle. Boy's Playmate was one disaster after the next. Luckly for me I lost the middle piece so I just made it solid black out of pure frustration!

    Wel, well let try again...
    On Friday she cleans the place where the cows are, removing the "MUD" and "cow pies".
    This helps the cows not be dirty and be with good health... is it??

    QuiltE - Mud, yuck! As to the phrase, I have no idea. I keep racking my brains, but to no avail.

    Art - I like your guess!

    Fryguy - I like your blocks. Wow, a star in the middle, & those horses w/buggies are so nostalgic.
