    Oh Sue, I love your keets. They are darling. Your rooster quilt sounds like it is gonna be a blast to make! That Crazy Quilt looks wonderful quilted! I love the colors in it. Your DF that quilted it made it shine.

    Never mind... I looked up 'keets' and found that they are guinea fowl. Such pretty birds when grown! Will you eat them?

    Hubby's granny used to have a yard full of them.

    I spent the afternoon cutting batting and fitting backing for a stack of tops I had made. Ugh... that's the tedious part of quilting. Most were from my stash of squares from years of cutting scraps. I'm trying to use them up but seem to accumulate more as soon as I do. Does anyone ever really get ahead of their scraps?

    Now I need more batting!

    The keets will grow to be giants or jumbo size, they eat ticks and bugs, so they have a forever home. They are 'grounded', will never fly away. If anything is wrong outside, they will sound off alerting you there are problems outside. These are very alert birds that 'listen' to you talk (cock their heads and look at you) to them, and they bond with you that way.

    I'd love to have some running around our place... only we have so many predators that they wouldn't be safe. Even our chickens which were in a covered enclosure were often invaded and dragged out into the woods and killed.

    DH sent me some more jokes today. This was among 'em. The thing is that I grew up hearing my DM sing this one. Well up to the point that he had a bouncing baby boy. I don't think she remembered the rest. Anyway below is the words of the song that I grew up hearing;

    I'm My Own Grandpa

    Now, many many years ago
    When I was twenty three
    I was married to a widow
    Who was pretty as could be

    This widow had a grown-up daughter
    Had hair of red
    My father fell in love with her
    And soon the two were wed

    This made my dad my son-in-law
    And changed my very life
    My daughter was my mother
    'Cause she was my father's wife

    To complicate the matters
    Even though it brought me joy
    I soon became the father
    Of a bouncing baby boy

    My little baby then became
    A brother-in-law to dad
    And so became my uncle
    Though it made me very sad

    For if he was my uncle
    That also made him the brother
    Of the widow's grown-up daughter
    Who, of course, was my step-mother

    I'm my own grandpa
    I'm my own grandpa
    It sounds funny I know
    But it really is so
    I'm my own grandpa

    My father's wife then had a son
    That kept them on the run
    And he became my grandchild
    For he was my daughter's son

    My wife is now my mother's mother
    And it makes me blue
    Because, she is my wife
    She's my grandmother too

    I'm my own grandpa
    I'm my own grandpa
    It sounds funny I know
    But it really is so
    I'm my own grandpa

    Now, if my wife is my grandmother
    Then, I am her grandchild
    And every time I think of it
    It nearly drives me wild

    For now I have become
    The strangest case you ever saw
    As the husband of my grandmother
    I am my own grandpa

    I'm my own grandpa
    I'm my own grandpa
    It sounds funny I know
    But it really is so
    I'm my own grandpa

    I'm my own grandpa
    I'm my own grandpa
    It sounds funny I know
    But it really is so
    I'm my own grandpa

    That song is very true in my Mother's family. Funny thing in genealogy, things you find in your ancestor's closets.

    I have cleared my sewing table of all roosters to go back to the FM 1930 and the Bible Sampler. As soon as my energy returns. Just reading today. Baked yesterday.

    My family had a kinda similar situation. My DGAunt married her niece's DFIL. That meant that her DGNiece & DGNephew became her DGK's. So when her nephew/grandson got married his brides family were so confused! Sometimes he called her Grandma & sometimes he called her Aunt N****. Well a few months after the wedding DGA got very sick. (She had sepsis!) I went to the emergency room to be w/her. I told a security guard that I wanted to see my Aunt & her name is N**** P******. While the security guard was escorting me to the room she asked me if my Aunt was related to (she named the nephew/grandson.) When I said yes she asked how she was related & I just stammered for a minute. Then I said that it is too complicated to tell her right then. I'd explain once I had seen how DGA was doing. An hour later she came back in the room & told us she is now the DMIL of the nephew/grandson & was confused. So we explained it too her & we all had a good laugh which was just what DGA needed right then.

    Well Dh cleanled out the part of the storage part of the laundry room. He found the towels that DD wanted me to put initials on. She bought 'em a year ago. I had a plan to use my embroidery machine but couldn't find my large hoop to do it. Well after about 6 months I gave up & bought a new hoop but by that time DH had rearranged the enclosed carport & I couldn't find the towels. Now I know he moved 'em into the laundry/storage room. Anyway he found 'em yesterday. OK I have the hoop & the towels so I got busy. I got all but DFGD's done. She had bought an extra one for some reason & now we know why. DFGD needs one. I had to stop as a thunder storm came through & I didn't want my embroidery machine to be plugged in during that.
    There is a step that I want to do on my regular machine but again I need to finish #4DN's quilt first. I am nearly finished. I have one more pass on this edge. Then I have to go around the whole edge. OH I also have the fix the places that I have eyelashes on the back. I think there are about 4 of those. The thing is I am bored w/it & have to push myself back to it. Actually when I get going on it I enjoy doing it. Sigh.

    So today's plan is to do laundry, do the embroidery part of DFGD's towel, & work on #4DN's quilt.

    Hi everyone! We are back from a 2 month trip up the Oregon Coast, Mid Oregon, then down to Phoenix to visit my son and granddaughter. We had planned to go to Idaho to visit friends and family again, but had to change our plans due to a death in the Idaho friends (where we stay) family.

    Carrie, I am loving the quilt blocks you are doing. I think I will have to get involved in another quilt-a-long, as I am so much more productive when I am doing them. I am still plugging away on quilting all my UFO's. Almost all of them need just the quilting. I use my Brother 1500S, it seems to take forever.

    Hey there, Jeanie! That's a lot of traveling. I'm sure it was fun.

    Bev, you are always so productive. You inspire me.

    Hope everyone else is doing ok!

    One step forward and two back. I have 'sit' in my QR, but no progress or work done. Dh had appointment today, but was too sick to go to it. So we wait another couple of months when he can try again. Love to hear of quilt progresses and trips, all sound and look great. maybe it will aspire me to move an inch or two forward! (Tomorrow!).

    Hello All! Thanks for all the compliments on my blocks. No new blocks for me as I was gone to CA for 6 days. My son had two tournaments from Friday-Monday. One was the Youth World Archery Trials. He placed 2nd in the Junior Recurve Male division and will be shooting in Madrid, Spain in August!!! (1st-3rd get to go from each division--2 age groups, male/female, recurve/compound--so 24 archers in all)

    Today was grocery shopping and laundry day. Tomorrow I am getting a massage at the massage school near my house...1hr massage for just $30. I might get some sewing done in the afternoon....

    QNS---I know at one time the quilt shop where you visited me in Marion had some chicken wire fabric....not sure if they still have it but I would be happy to check for you if you want to send me a picture of what you have to make sure it is the same thing. Seems like there was a red version, black and maybe a tan??

    OK--thanks for sharing the girls' projects. They look very proud and projects look great!

    Great news on line today. Ok, that pillow case looks terrific and love the boots that complete the picture. The quilt is no bad to look at either. Great job the girls did on both. Weather her is turning hot, its county fair time.

    Carrie, I found enough chicken wire fabric in my stash for two or three quilts. Thanks for the offer of more. What exciting news to go abroad with your son's win in archery. Hope passports are in order, ready to go.

    We traded up for new smart phones yesterday; they have already made us feel very stupid. US Cellular did not transfer all our names and numbers, so we have to do it by hand, manually into the phones. They just might get them back! Company coming; the vintage quilt might get its binding done. Too hot to go outside.

    Sue, you will love your smart phones once you get the hang of them! They are actually little computers with a phone feature.... I love the GPS on mine. So great for getting around while traveling. And all the music you can store on your phone, and the pictures! My phone has a better built in camera than any separate camera I’ve ever had. And wherever you are, you can look up things online.

    My hubby isn’t tech saavy at all, but he recently learned what Safari was for, and was amazed. He’s had his IPhone for about three years, learning it little by little.

    SBG--the massage was Great! You never quite know what you will get when it is a student (the last one I had didn't do what I asked), but yesterday's lady kept good pressure and focused on the spots that needed it. I even rescheduled with her for when we return from our next trip.

    QNS--Unfortunately finances won't allow for me to go to Spain with my son, but I will for sure be watching the online scoring no matter the time difference! We do both have our passports up to date however so he is all set to go.

    Carrie, that sounds like good news and bad news. Good he gets to go and bad news that you cannot go too.

    Yesterday, a miracle happened. My cousins that are visiting took me on a road trip into the last day of the All Iowa Quilt Shop, always in the month of June. We seen two Freedom Rocks and John Wayne's boyhood home along the way. Found several things to bring home with me from the five quilt shops and ate at the Amana Colony in Iowa. Heritage Designs is always wonderful to see and shop and Fern Designs is always 'bright' in beautiful colors. Pictures later, I am behind in reading emails, etc., love company but this younger set is hard to keep up with...happy sigh.

    She taught me to use my phone camera when we got back. Slowly learning more about it. There might be hope!
