    FWS Pony Club Quilt-Along Wk 5 Blocks "Best of All & Best Friend" DISCUSSION Page

    Hello Y'all Ye L'il Cowgirls and Cowboy ...
    (and there's always room for more Cowpokes to join the ride!!!)

    First an update ... Honchey managed to get a message out to me via Stage Coach Express. She's still having problems with her computer and internet connections. I'm relaying her message to you, so you know she's riding along with us in spirit. And too, she's done a couple more blocks in her "spare" time!

    I'm happy to help out in the interim ... though please know, I'll be glad when you're back with us Honchey!!

    So folks ... come on and gather 'round the campfire and tell us your stitchin' tales!! And too, fess up as to what's that brewing over at the Cook Wagon!!

    Yeehaw!!!!!!!!!

    Sure glad Honchey has you for a backup, QE! Have you got your blocks done? I downloaded all the patterns for the blocks I am behind on. Wish I didn't take so long in fabric selection.--grrr
    Hey, I stole an idea from QE--I've been cutting out 1 and 1 1/2 inch squares from my fabric choices so I can put them together in a little quilt to commemorate the yee ha journey.

    *blush* ... though I 'll be quite content to have Honchey back in the saddle!!

    Thanks for asking
    OKSGlad ... and no I don't have any PC blocks done except A Dandy that I did the first week, then left the Posse, to finish up FWS. Now that my FWS blocks are done, I'm going to be into production this week for the PC. Will start with these two and then catch up on the missing seven, as I can.

    THANKFULLY ... the two for this week look to be not so hard to do. Hardest part is the time to choose fabrics from the stash!

    BTW Co-Riders .... watch our for that
    OKSGlad ... she's quite the little conspirator!
    (and thank you for your part in the conspiracy,
    OK ... I'm glad you did!)

    She looks around, once, twice, then declares, "Who, me?" She twisted my arm, didn't you hear me yelp!

    "..giggling" as i put a marshmallow on a stick & put it over the campfire. Ok I know that marshmallows aren't "cowboy" but it's what I think of when campfires come to mind.
    Ya'll are so fun!

    *steals DublB's stick complete with with marshmallow!!*


    I must admit, I have been wondering if
    Honchey's computer problems are linked to the fact that Cowboys don't do computers!!! (of course, the modern cowboy would have a BlackBerry!)

    Thanks QE for taking over the reins for Honchey. Is that cowgirl lingo? Check out my blocks--you may recognize the ducks (or geese or swans, I'm not sure which). Thank you!
    At our campfire tonight we had Minestrone--not too cowboyish. I'd really like a marshmallow right now!

    I'll share!!!! I don't get ta do sugar anymore so these virtual marshmallows are great!
    I've cut out my pieces for Best Of All. Now ta cut out Best Friend.

    PS. That soup sounds good! You'd think I hadn't eaten. Well I did. DH made Chicken Fried Steak, Green Beans & Asparagus. (The Asparagus was just for me!) Then I had some pecans later for a snack.

    Love those wieners! These kind of marshmallows are OK!
    I got all of my fabric cut out! Some of those triangles are tiny! I'll sew 'em up tomorrow.

    This is so funny to read, I will be away for a few days (hopefully) our wet season has finally started, 3 inches of rain today and only a couple of miles down the highway we have a bridge that floods every year. Last year the highway was closed 5 times in 3 weeks. There was an amber alert today to proceed with caution so I am leaving early in the morning to visit with my DD for a few days.
    I ordered my sashing fabric. I went with a medium blue for the sashing, light blue with tiny stars for the cornerstones and the dark blue border print all from American Banner Rose fabric line.
    Might try and get on my DD's computer tomorrow night and see what's happening around the camp fire, don't want to miss anything, especially the marshmallows lol

    It's sooooooo cold here, 21F actually but with the wind it feels like 8 and I have to run some errands this afternoon. Don't want to think of tonight as I have to attend a meeting
    So I'm sitting very close to the fire having hot chocolate without marshmallows!
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    I just looked at all my scans in their folder and couldn't help noticing the strong diagonal lines so many of them exhibit, even the Alabama made up entirely of squares. Wonder if this is a trend that will continue?

    I went & looked through them all & yes most of 'em have very strong diagonal lines! Although some of 'em have a softer look. Good eye OK!

    HeeHaw, cowgirls & cowboys...what's on for supper?? Beans, morning, noon and night. Its rare for the working cowperson to eat lunch, 'cause they are busy working.

    So happy its modern days on the farm or ranch, so we can enjoy our meals and try new recipes with no beans. Our daughter ate black beans 3 meals each day she was on a school trip to Mexico for 10 days; never has touched one since.
    PM me QuiltE with your email and I will send you the mouth-watering minestrone recipe that will freeze or store in the refrigerator for a week. You can publish it here if you want too. My dh demands my chili soup on winter days. But with the temps running in the 50s and up to 70s, its fried chicken time. Diped in buttermilk and flour, then fried. Biscuits and gravy to go with that chicken. For breakfast, its waffle time, with scrambled eggs on the side.

    Some people like to cook way too much! Not something I enjoy at all. The older I get the more simple I like my food, but beans 3 x a day would be way too much.
    Supper at our house is salad. Yup, every night. DH had a slight health alert about 5 years ago and it's been salads in the evening ever since. It's gotta be a big hearty one though with meat mixed in. Last night it was taco. Tonight might be a pork stir fry covering a bed of greens.
    Soups haven't been real big here this winter either, but I can our own beef and boy is that a great base for my beef and barley.

    I used ta cook but my DH does it now. About 7 yrs he blew out his back. He couldn't do anything for about 3 months. When he started ta come out from under the pain he was able ta walk around or lay on his stomach. He was board 'cause he still couldn't sit. He started to cook. Something he could do standing. When he went back ta work I picked back up on the cooking except on the weekends. 4 yrs.ago my DFIL was dyeing & DMIL has alzheimer's & I started spending more & more time over at their house. By the end of the year I was spending 10 hours a day over there & DH was going ta work & doing all of the cooking cleaning & laundry! DFIL died 3 yrs ago this coming March. (I also lost my Dad 9 days before my DFIL) DMIL lived with us & I took care of her for 4 months. We found the perfect place for her! DH still does all of the cooking! This gives me more time ta sew!

    Believe it or not, after 40+ yrs of marriage I'm just learning to cook!!!! I worked full-time until 3 yrs ago so supper was always quick-sandwiches, left overs from the week-end, pasta, you know easy things. Since I only work 1 or 2 days a week now I decided to learn to really cook good, healthy food. I love to cook now. My crockpot is my best friend LOL. I also have time to try new recipes and have even been making bread. (This is all probably normal behavior for all of you but this is all new to me!) I wonder, though, why I've gained 10 pounds in the last 3 yrs??????

    New conversation around the campfire
    I printed off next week's pattern and the 3 others I'm behind on tonight, then picked fabrics for the 3 blocks. Because I'm cutting those little squares out I now have 30 fabrics in 10 blocks! Yikes!!!! At this rate that could be 270 fabrics in this baby. Guess I had better start reusing some of my fabric choices! Good night all.
