    So this is becoming the weather thread!

    Farmers are the most optimistic and resilient of folks!!!!

    OKSGlad ... ho's production? Farmer friends have been telling me how they are dropping with every shipment because of the ongoing heat. What a wonderful donation to the fundraiser!

    MiraB ... totally patriotic to the toes with your UGG boots! Just go and curl up in one of your quilts and get warm.

    JanRN .. YIKES!! for the hail. Will remember the popcorn popper line everytime it rains/hails here! Glad you were safe and minor issues, compared to what some are facing. Bet Patches was scaaaaaaared!!


    One summer when the heat was extreme, we took the calves out of their nursery and tied them to trees on the lawn so they could get the breeze. Wish I had pictures to show everyone ... it was wever so cute! A row of huge pine trees, and at the base of each a baby holstein calf!!!!


    Still no rain here ... threatened for yesterday and day before ... and then nothing for at least a week. Well, there was a bit the night before last, but it didn't show as any in the rain guage! That's here ... and not so far away, they had downpours!

    Corn is getting spiky (for the city folk, the leaves spike upwards, showing their dryness, as though looking for rain) and soybeans on sandy knolls are drying up. A little rain will help things immensely.

    What I have been working on:Name:  Chain of Lovep1.JPG
Views: 61
Size:  68.5 KBName:  Chain of lovep2.JPG
Views: 64
Size:  71.6 KBChains of Love, for Prairie Star Quilts by Julie Larsen, Prairie Star Quilts, Elk Horn, Iowa. Queen size is noted to be 8 wide and 9 down, (93 1/2 by 107 1/2) but my main chain is four wide and measures 92 inches. Unsure how they count the secondary chain ring, then mine is seven and one half chains wide.

    But I 'had' to stop and do a few more PC blocks.

    This is going to be a great quilt, QNS!
    How's production? Milk truck driver says every pickup is down except for the fellow who put a swamp cooler in his barn. With 15% energy price hike not sure if that will pay.

    QNSue...thanks for the blocks even though you are so busy with that beautiful quilt you posted. Will you do the quilting too?

    All....just got a reminder about the malware that could be active this next week. Here's a link to the FBI site that explains it. My computers check out okay for which I'm thankful. It's my connection to the rest of the world, and wonderful people like you all. http://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/2011...malware_110911

    Thanks for the nice words. No, it will go across the street to the Moss Sisters and their LA Grammill (?)machine. It is for my Father-in-law's sister-in-law, the last survivor of that generation. I suddenly felt the urgency of 'do it now!' so trying to work it through yesterday. Hitting my head against one stone wall after another, spending a lot of time with the seam ripper 'cause I misread the instructions, size of pieces, etc. Dh helped too. Third try is a go to the fourth chain circle down.

    QNSue ... it's a beautiful quilt! I've never seen the pattern, and really like it. So old fashioned looking, which will be perfect for the intended recipient. Good for you for making it as a special surprise for her. Yes, sometimes despite how much we want to work on things, there comes a time when we need a break and it's better to just walk away for a few days. Or perhaps it was trot away to your PC Blocks?

    Bless your husband for helping ... how sweet!


    OKSGlad ... Gotta love those travelling gossips, the milk truck drivers and the AI technicians! Always ready to tell what's happening in the neighbourhood, and beyond! Sadly the drop will really hurt your milk cheques!

    QNSue that will be a beautiful quilt when it is finished, please post a pic when it is quilted. Would love to see it. I am sure your FIL's SIL will love it.
    I have been trying to catch up, my carpets are still not cleaned, that is happening on Thursday, so should be posting pics of my sewing room soon.
