    CarrieM, "Which permanent pens do you use to write on quilts???" Mirco pens are number 1 and in a variety of color. Just got a Pentel Gel Roller for Fabric in black and seems to work well without fading or bleeding. There are Micro brush (point) pens and rolling tip pens and most quilt stores carry them or they can be ordered on internet.

    I have a set of Pigma Micron Pens. They dry permanent, and are waterproof and fade-resistent. They work well too.

    Oh I'm so excited about the bonus blocks. I love the idea o' signin' 'em! I'm thinkin' about usin' a Sharpie also. I hadn't decided what block I was gonna do yet. Now I have a direction ta look for.
    I love hearin' about the farm life. I live in a midsize town. Kinda like the suburbs. (Something 15 min.s is far away.) My aunt lives in the country on 5 acres, (about 20 min.s away.) I love goin' ta help her ta plant the tomatoes & pick black-eyed peas. Nothin' was planted for the last 2 years because there was no rain.

    Glad you ladies enjoyed my FART story. DGS is 19, soph at Penn State as are the 3 buddies he was with. I forgot to mention the clerk at Starbucks didn't charge me for my coffee--said we made her day!
    I'm not getting a lot of practice on my HQ Sweet 16. It's easier than I thought it would be and so much fun. It's also the perfect size--takes up about as much room as a card table. I've been watching lots of Lea Day's videos and hope next week that I'll have more time to play (I mean practice). You have all been so supportive--I second guess myself about everything, especially a large purchase like this. I'll post a pic if I ever accomplish something worth showing.

    Oksewglad...mentioning then World Dairy Expo brought back memories. What a great event to attend. Did you drive up and back the same day? That's a little bit of a haul when there is so much to do there.
    Thanks for all the tips on the pens to use. I'll be looking for them.
    QuiltE..what is RSWF and are you the miss Mazel that is thinking of going to Madison? When might that be? My daughter only lives about an hour thirty minutes south of there and I owe her a visit before the snow flies.
    Carrie, your chocolate walk sounds fun. Maybe your youngest daughter is ready fir dance lessons.

    & It's heavy! I didn't git the other Letters or the # at the end. It spells his Name & has his Football # at the other end o' the name. I actually got it done the year he graduated.

    GGal ... It's actually RAWF = Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, more commonly referred to as The Royal! It's the premier livestock show in Canada. Many of those who show at Madison WDE, also show in Toronto at The Royal. We never showed at Madison, though did show both breeds at The Royal. All livestock will be shown (dairy, beef, goats, pigs, fowl and fancy feathers, sheep). Most of the ag commodities have displays to help educate and inform the general public. Not the trade expo that is at Madison, though extensive booths for the genetic companies. Then there's the vendors, which of course the true aggies loathe ... and the city people love! It's also well known for it's horse show most nights, including many of the Olympic and International riders. I particularly like to see the heavy horse hitches, different breeds every night.

    I'll be disappearing again the first couple weeks of November as I'm working the whole show.

    Miss Mazel is the cow that I made. So the trip mentioned was more so for her, not me! WDE used to have a dairy art show and I keep thinking how nice it would be to show her there, amidst cow things, instead of the way I have had to show her til now! If you missed out on seeing her before ... here she is ....

    JeanieG ... Let's say, she became a true Labour of Love! Her namesake topped her class when shown ... and she's now brought home three red ribbons (firsts in Canada!)

    JanRN ... Me-thinks that DGS strategized and was waiting for your grand arrival! Rotten kid, right ... but oh so "D"!!! Good news out of all that with your freebie from 'Bucks!

    DublB ... nice job done with the extra touches to personalize

    DublB I love that quilt--I've never tried a rag quilt before but it sure looks warm.

    QE, how did I miss that cow before? That's awesome!

    Wow I stay off the computer for a day and look what I miss I spent the yesterday working on Pony Club Blocks and sewing some rows together. (sssshhh don't tell anyone)
    I plan on piecing my backing fabric to incorporate my bonus blocks and would love everyone to sign my blocks.
    I think we need to have a party at the end of our trail ride, I'll bring the marshmallows and cupcakes

    So y'all like Miss Mazel!

    I will confess ... of all the things I have done, because of her uniqueness, I am probably the most proud of her! Yes, even more so than my FWS! Can you believe me saying that?

    Well I'm sitting here drinking my morning coffee and since there are no new posts, I revisited some from before. Still as pretty as ever. We had frost in the pumpkin Sunday and Monday morning with cooler days. The sun is shining brightly now and the forecast is for 60+ weather. I didn't get outside but want to today. I've developed a cold that has settled in my chest and the outside air will do me good. I slept downstairs in the recliner from about 2:30 this morning so my coughing wouldn't wake my DH. It worked. He didn't even know I was gone until he woke up this morning. I have only 2 more blocks to do for PC and then I'll start the bonus blocks. I have so many ideas.....have a good day my friends!

    O, I wonder GG, how many subs did you do in the last 8 blocks of PC? If you are coughing a lot, do what was suggested on QB, rub vick's on the soles of your feet and put a pair of bobby socks on...coughing will stop within five minutes or less. It has worked with several of my friends and family, that I passed word onto after learning it here on QB. In the past, we rubbed it on our chest, never knew what it would do if we rubbed it on our feet!! Hope you get to feeling better soon.

    For the last 5 weeks I will have 4 subs. Thanks for the Vicks hint. I put some on right away and have been outside so I'm not sure what the results are but the test will be tonight when I go to bed.

    Forgot to say its when you go to bed at night, apply to soles of feet, cover with a pair of socks and go to bed.

    Have designed 6 of last 8 blocks, have to sew them together yet...More eye candy to come tonight or in the morning, and I am looking forward to seeing everyone's blocks for the week. Getting colder here again; wonder if we see snow before Halloween?
