    No candy to see???? I have been working on other projects that have gotten behind on, and hoped to see what everyone did with this week's blocks. I think I might sub.the Indian Hatchet for Indian and horse.

    I'm hoping to get back in the saddle soon .... got my FWS hanging sleeve installed, and was so into it that I finally put one onto my Shabby Chique OBW. So tonight I started cutting out the infamous Monty the Mountie for the International Patriotic Challenge! I need it to be done or well on the way, before I can return to PC sewing. So sad as I so didn't want to fall behind.

    I thought I might not make it this week also but my wonderful old Janome just purred along after I gave it a good clean and an oil.
    Honchey I didn't do the Indian on Horseback block, it just seemed an odd block to me and also my fabric would not have suited. Hope you like the block I chose....

    I didn't get this weeks done or last weeks even posted...they are done. It looks like all of us are busier than a cat on a hot tin roof! Maybe I'll have time to post pics this afternoon. I've had 2 days of quilt classes and have to focus on getting ready to fly out to my DGD's wedding this Friday. Speaking of hot, how has the weather been treating you all? We got over 2 inches of rain last Saturday which was a real relief and now it's been in the 90's every day since. Still cools down reasonably well at night so we haven't put in the window AC. DH likes to go as long as possible without it and he has a system with the fans that works well for out little house, at least for a time.

    Dubib...congratulations on the closing. Sounds like you guys will be keeping the road busy between Midland and Brady!

    Mirabelle...how is the moving going on in your part of the world? Is your DS the last one living at home?

    I did the Indian block but not too fond of it; it also is facing the wrong way ("Go west, young man!") I also didn't paper piece Jewel and it's the wonkiest block I've made. Will try to post later.
    After falling on May 26 and all x-rays negative, they repeated my mother's x-rays on Monday and she has 3 broken bones in her foot and a small fracture in her ankle. Now I feel guilty for pushing her at Physical Therapy. So, we start over!

    JanRN, that's funny, (go west, young man). I'm not fond of my indian block either, it's very strange looking. Sorry about your Mom. Don't feel guilty, you didn't know. Haven't started Jewel yet. It's going to be so hot today, with high humidity. Will not be a happy camper.

    QuiltE, I'm looking forward to seeing your Monty the Mountie.

    It's county fair week here! Watching 2 youngest GC while family is working in the 4-H building; 2 GD's have their Clover Kids exhibits evaluated tonight. Pray for rain--looks like a front coming across the Upper Midwest and boy do we need the rain!

    I wasn't sure where to post this. Please give me your honest opinion on this sashing color (it's dark blue with swirly green). I always use black for sashing but I kind of like this one. Please be brutally honest--I can take it!!Name:  Pony Quilt Blue Sash.jpg

    Jan...I really like your sashing choice. It brings movement and color without overpowering the blocks.

    I love the colors and the quilting, JanRN. Blue color is just right, to me.

    JanRN ... Yepppirrrrrrr ... I sure do like that blue/green with those blocks. big step away from the black you were promising. I like the "life" in the blue, not so dark that it still looks black!! It's really making the colours pop and shine in the blocks and adding to the movement. Sweet! Any thoughts yet for your cornerstones? So sorry about your Mom's breaks ... so sad that they missed it. Ditto as to your not feeling guilty about pushing her in physio ... you have condence in the system and it let you down. Good for you for making the Indian and I'll look forward to seeing him in the other thread. I'll be making him, though I won't say that he'll make it into the quilt!

    Honchey ... Chances are, I'm further back in the dust than you! Yea for your NC visit and for taking DS! As for the BINGO, I think you're going to have to do a block, dedicated to just that!

    OKSGlad ... Here come the Judge! Here comes the Judge!! Look forward to hearing all about the County Fair, the quilt judge and your Grands. Oh don't forget to show us a pic of the basket/coffin and tell us more as to what it's all about! PLease?

    Termi ... trot on over to the Intl Patriotic Thread ... Monty made a preliminary debut today!

    MiraB ... so glad that your machine is purring after it's Humpty Dumpty!

    GGal ... do hope that it's a tad cooler for the wedding. Nothing worse than having to get all dressed up and it be miserably hot! We've had some rain, but not a lot. What we did get, has really made the crops jump ... though not far away, things are bleak. Wheat is heading out, and starting to colour a little. Everyone is pushing with the hay right now! No a/c here either, just in my truck!! Luckily I can seek refuge downstairs .... sewing yipppeeeee .... and I have a guest suite that I can "stay" in!

    I plan on running to Fair tomorrow for the dog show. Will take the camera with and try to get pictures of the QShow et al. GS got a blue on his heifer calf today and several blue ribbons on his other exhibits--had a state poster; a cookie comparison-compared from scratch cookies to BC pouch mix and ready to bake cookies--from scratch were 2cents a cookie cheaper than the other two. He had a taste test on willing victims this weekend, only 1 chose the pouch mix over the homemade as the better tasting. Also entered some photos and the cookie challenge. One recipe for all--let's see how they compare. Tomorrow's dog obedience--may be trickier to get a blue there; Bandit weighs almost as much as he does! Here he is with Zelda, his December heifer calfName:  484171_3165243859657_194456341_n.jpg

    Jan, I really like the blue you chose for the sashing....

    I know you're so proud of your GS,Oksewglad.. that calf is so pretty...

    QuiltE, I just designed a block after a Bingo game they call Indian Star.. its a letter X with a + superimposed on it and I just added a couple of triangles to add an arrow design in it. I think it's pretty, but I can't figure out how to show it here...If I create a block on EQ 7 can I share it online???

    OKSGlad ... looks like the 4-H show has started off well for your Grands! Too funny on the cookie comparison and resuslts. You'll ahve to get pics of the dog show ... I think this is such a wonderful 4-H club project! Congratulations to DGS and Zelda for making such a great team and their blue/first ribbon!!

    Honchey ... I'm no geek to advise you, though our very own OKSGlad has shared EQ drawings here with us before. If you design it and show it, I'll make it ... just for you!!!!!!!

    GardnerGal970, the moving is going slowly, we moved a few boxes yesterday when he received the keys after settlement went through. Unfortunately this is really bad timing for him as he works at the Sugar Mill and the harvest season started last Sunday so we will have to move him slowly on his days off. He works long hours 13 to 14 hours a day and his Dad is only home every second week. I keep telling him to have patience but he is so excited.

    Our daughter left home when she was almost 17 (with our blessings) she had to move away from home to do her chef's apprenticeship, she has come home a couple of times and now lives an hour and a half drive away. So in a few weeks we will be empty nesters. I must admit I am a little excited and also a little sad. But I am sure DS will be popping in regularly especially at meal times

    JanRN I love the blue is really makes the blocks pop. I think black might be too harsh, just my opinion.

    Thanks all-I'm going to use that dark blue sashing and I really appreciate your input.

    OK-thanks for posting the pic of GS with cow---I've never been that close to a cow in my life (and don't think I want to be LOL). Can't wait for more pics from the fair.

    Anne, you're doing so well with EQ7. I'm still a dinosaur when it comes to anything other than one block at a time. I like the block you designed.

    Mirab-I thought I'd be sad at being an empty-nester. Yep, for 5 minutes!! Good luck.

    QE just looked at Monty--he's cute!!! Love the mustache.
