    The FWS Pony Club Quilt-Along wk 16 Eastertide & Ella's Star Discussion Page

    This week's blocks were much easier to do then last week's and we're still not off the hook...there are more "Y" seams to come in the near future....H.

    .Letter of the Week #9--Dwight M. Snow; Golden Valley County, North

    Block association ... Betty's Delight

    Dwight M. Snow was born on January 29, 1902 in Minnesota. In the first census that he is listed (1910) he and his father, Francis (b. 1878) and his mother, Fawn (b. 1877) are living in Golden Valley County, North Dakota. In the 1920 census when Dwight is 18 years old, only he and his father are listed. It is unknown if mother Fawn, died or left the family. By the 1930 census, Dwight is listed along with his wife Engelina Snow who was born on May 17, 1903. We also find that Dwight and Engelina are the parents of a six month old baby girl, Mary. Dwight died rather young, on January 15, 1968, just a few weeks shy of his 66th birthday. He never did leave Golden Valley. His wife Angeline lived to be 97 years old and passed away on Christmas Eve 2000 in Bowman, North Dakota. Since daughter Mary was born in 1929, it is quite likely that she is still living. The problem is that it is hard to find daughters since they usually marry and change their names. I am hoping that Dwight and Engelina had a son and I can locate him next year when the 1940 census is released.

    We watch the genealogy shows and "see" how easy it is to trace family trees, but IRL it isn't that easy is it? What a lovely name--Fawn. Hoping to get at the blocks yet tonight.

    I am just off to bed but had to check the message board. I also had problems with those pesky corners so egads I hand pieced them in, first time for everything. Honchey you and Anael aced those set in corners, I am so envious. Mine look ok but they could have been better. Will post pics tomorrow, I have to deliver my charity quilts to the hospital, will post pics of those also..

    Ladies, please forgive me for not participating this past week. I've looked at and love all the blocks "yinz" have made. My mother was in the hospital for 3 days and is now in a rehabilitation facility to get her build her strength and walking. I relax late at night or in the coffee shop looking at all your beautiful blocks and getting caught up. I miss joining in.

    I substituted a block for Eastertide. I think of my dad and his hyacinths whenever I think of Easter. (And to be perfectly honest, I couldn't get those blasted corners in my block LOL).

    Thanks for the well wishes for my mother. I really appreciate your support. Prayers to Arte, too.

    Hope to be back to normal schedule (or "new normal") by next week.
    Peace-Jan

    JanRN ... I've been thinking about you, and knew your absence was telling us that you were with your Mom. While it's extra for you to be heading to the rehab for visits, I hope you take some comfort in knowing that she is getting the care and assistance that she needs at this time. Here's wishing her strength and stability as she gets back to walking. And strength to you, to hold up!!! It's so good that you have the internet hook up at the coffee shop to help you get your "fix"! I swear I could smell your Dad's hyacinths .... always love that smell, and particularly when you first walk into a room with them. Or as you walk along a walkway with many in bloom.

    Hi Wendig,In the Blocks of the Month & Week there is a thread that I posted...."spring break discussion page"...click on that thread and scroll to message # 108... Everytime someone posts a reply there is a number to that message in the top right corner of it...There may be an easier way to get there...I don't know how to do it...I'm going to try to bring it up closer to the current posting.

    So sad that Laurie ie letting "her" group go ... and what a compliment to you Honchey, that she is recommending they trot on over to this group!

    Oh dear ... does that mean we'll have to start behaving? *giggles*

    I have been a member of that site from the start, and unlike the FWSQ, there is very little traffic there. Only a couple of posts, if that a day. I don't contribute either, just follow along, so I can see why she is dropping it.

    More the merrier on our PC trail ride. Yes, everyone needs to start with the Spring Break to see how we had "virtual" fun and the many things that we shared. Those who fail to make the 2 blocks every week, can use the Virtual RV that is equipped with everything one wishes for....almost. Lots of love, laughter and quilting going on in this group, as well as some "farm" talk and remembering fond memories of the farm. Each to his/her ways of doing each week's blocks in their own personal style. Then come wonderful Wednesdays when we get to 'see' on going week's block from each rider on the trail.

    More 'eye' candy gives us more to drool over. I love to cook...and we even exchange recipes on this site. Distances do not stop our 'tasting' the treats or crock cooking to share. Our rhubarb is all ready; on our second round of rhubarb crunch. Peas are blooming, potatoes are coming up.

    What a great complement to the Trail Gang and their boss (Honchey)! Yup, the more the merrier.
    I'm heading over to the sewing room and get my blocks done. Picked fabrics last night for those and the next two.
    DH and I took a road trip with a couple of heifer calves. One so she could go to her new home in Massachusetts and the other for a consignment sale. Sale crew will have her all clean and gussied up for Saturday's auction. Took 3 yo with us who like all 3 yo's is entertainment cubed! Fascinated by the big, "huge" water (aka Mississippi R). There were frogs in the water and they talked with her! Ah imaginative kids, gotta love them.

    What wonderful memories for both generations of the Grands!
    Did you sell the other calf? Or a 4-H Loaner?

    Honchey and JeanieG ... being that the two of you were on the Yahoo group ... I hope you left a message for the others to come on over and join us ... and how to find us! Will this mean that Laurie might drop by some now? Wouldn't that be nice?

    As far as I know it's not announced yet by Laurie. I'm a member of the Yahoo group too. A few weeks ago she said she was too busy to continue with the Pony Club and another member of the group took over.

    What a wonderful compliment to have this group recommended, just goes to show what fun we have and we actually finish our quilts. Maybe not everyone can commit to 2 blocks per week but there is always encouragement to keep going and not give up. And the cooking is not bad either QNS

    And don't forget about your first-class-RV!!!!
    What an upgrade from our covered wagons we started with ... and the smoky campfires in the evenings!
