    Have the whole (almost!) Eleanor Burns collection of books including the egg money quilts. And Maria Mitchell's books and templates. Two medium sized book cases of quilt books, two large sized book cases of cook books.

    Small and large freezer in garage that is full up to the lid (half of a beef...360 pounds of it!!) and propane tank is filled, so ready for winter and paying of taxes in December...that last always ruins our Christmas...and prevents us from doing any celebration of the holidays.

    Peeled and cored the last tomatoes of the season; had my last tomato and bacon sandwich. Deviled dozen eggs, and put a round roast of beef in crock pot for later. Now off to the quilt room to try again. First time this morning I sat down, took the template pieces out of the plastic bag, and promptly lost a piece of the block without moving an inch!! Then the roof of the school house was sewn on wrong side out!! May leave it that way. Ripped out yesterday on a piece (four times) I finally starched heavy duty to get it to sew in right in Verna's favorite block.

    Keeping on smiling and keep people wondering what you are up too!!!

    Ggal--like those fabrics! Can't wait to see what you do with them.

    I have the house clean and everything thing ready for my retreat...we even got school done this morning! I leave in just one hour. Crystal and I are going early to set tables up, get name cards and retreat gifts all ready...plus to have a bit of quiet time before everyone else shows up starting at 4pm. We have 24 total coming this weekend! Most are scrapbookers, but there a a few quilters too. It started as a scrapbooking retreat, but since I have been quilting at them others have decided to do the same. We have tried inviting some other quilters too, but the weekend just hasn't worked into their schedules.

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

    You are all too funny....especially you QE...I stopped at the LQS and there I found such a simple block to do for the bonus and I don't even need a pattern for it... I am going to use bits of whatever I have left from the PC and incorporate them into the block. I think I may have found the right color for the sashing...I purchased the brown from Moda and now I don't like it...
    I'm going to DE next week to visit my sister...I need a haircut...She is a hairdresser (retired)...I always get eggs from the Amish when I'm in DE ..they are so much fresher and have a better taste then the store bought...I even get the raw milk from them...you know with the cream on top...it makes the store bought taste thin... I feel so much better knowing what I'm going to do for the bonus...I do have some Moda roses for Mirabelle's block...Now I have to go to EQ to make a pattern for the block...part of it will be pp'd. see ya later, H.

    Have fun with your sister, H. Fresh eggs, too, joy!! Yes, QuiltE, I may sell a turkey or two on the hoof...(feet) Live. They are pets and are so gentle except with other fowl. Carrie, good luck on your retreat, may it be a good one for you.

    Winterizing the house a bit more, trying to stop the wind from blowing in as it has since we moved into this all steel house. No code to meet, so they just put it up in a hurry...9 nine weeks and it was done....By one guy mostly.

    All PC blocks are done. Now to photograph, put into the computer file, and do the stashing on the blocks and think about the extended blocks. Finishing gs wildlife quilt, and other UFOs.

    While I don't want winter ... I do enjoy winter ... that is, if it's Christmas card perfect winter!


    QNSue ... looks ike you and DH will be able to eat quite well this winter! Any idea how big are those turks now?

    CarrieM

    Honchey ... honestly, I am not at all funny! Yea for "needing" to get your hair cut ... and some sister time! Good for you for plans on your blocks. I think I have mine figured out.

    Will be interesting to see if we have any duplicates in the blocks!

    QuiltE, we think the Toms are in the 25 to 35 pound group; the hens, a lesser amount, probably 18 to 25 pounds now. A big problem to dip into hot water and pick or we could skin the bird...have the big tub to use. No more than one in a day, 'cause we do not have the strength or energy to do more than that. Probably do the Toms first, then the hens.

    ....... and to say the least ... the oven space!

    Yes, get those big boys first ... my neighbour had some a few years ago, and kept leaving them, just to get bigger. After all, he figured, with all those feathers, there wasn't much bird underneath. Well, when the time came, the bird wouldn't fit in the oven, and so as we ate, the rest was in the oven cooking!!It was mighty good eating!!

    When are you going to ENJOY the first? mmmmmmmm!

    Some o' my sister's chickens have started ta eat her eggs. She has started ta glean them out & plans ta eat 'em. Her DH hasn't wanted ta kill 'em. It says it takes too much time that he doesn't have. LOL. I bet he'll git around to it soon. He is a preacher & has another full time job.

    Dublb, the chickens are short a mineral; need to get grit & oyster shell for them, too, to make the shells harder. Our Orscheln Farm Store has a block of mineral for free ranging chickens, ducks and turkeys that I got might help them. Also, collect the eggs through out the day. Never give them scraps with egg shells in it...save the egg shells for the garden, it helps the soil.

    Yep, I am happy with the beef that cost us $2.30 a pound...it will go along way into the winter and spring.

    Same diagnosis as I was going to make, QNSue!

    DublB ... yup, eating their eggs, shows they need the grit or oyster shell!



    It makes me smile, thinking of all the different topics we cover here in our threads!
    Can you just imagine what it;d be like if we were ever to gather IRL?
    OMG ........ it'd be unbelievable!

    She said that she does give 'em that mineral. At first she didn't & these egg eaters are some o' the first batch. I guess they got a taste for 'em. Her kids go & gather eggs 3 times a day. They now have about 50 chickens. They have about a half acre just for the chickens. (They live on 2 acres.)
