    They do catch rattle snakes & milk 'em for the venom. That is used to make anti-venom. There is also a gun & knife show. Then there are a ton of vendors, & a gigantic flea market.

    SBG, I called that piece 'honeycomb' for a bee hive; funny how we each relate to the various fabric pieces. Great job.

    No doubts, OK you will turn out two great twin bed quilts.

    Three more blocks and I can finish my king size Crazy Flying Geese quilt. Have the borders ready to cut and sew on it, too. Binding almost ready for the Pony Club quilt, I will finish that one. The an equal say on two other quilts to finish, the last LAH one we did Farmer's Wife 1930 and one a friend brought up from Southern Mo., ...then I might do a couple of the kits I have on hand. Auditioning some dark cranberry fabric and a pink cranberry with silver leaf outlines in it and some purple in my fabric/guest room. DH's cousin and wife stayed last night and we played more cards this morning before they left. It was all fun and we both enjoyed their visit.

    Busy week coming up; that means we will stay out of any trouble, I hope..LOL!

    Here's a picture of the quilt I made for my son for his birthday. This shows it washed and dried-- so 'in use.' :-) It's 64" x 80". My quilt is the same D4P pattern in 30's reproduction prints, but 10 x 10 blocks, 80" x 80" and no border. I still have some 30's fabric left, but not much! :-) I ended up liking his better than mine because of the border. It added a nice touch. (I decided to post this picture in the 'Pictures' thread too. I think it's the first time I posted in that thread...)

    That's a wonderful quilt, Givio. The border is really cool.

    Great job, Givio! I like that rainbow effect and border, too!

    That next F A R T is getting closer and I am getting excited. In less than two weeks now. One planned in the Spring and one in the Summer to look forward to, so it will be so nice, I can hardly wait!

    I am sandwiching my Bonnie Hunter MQ as we speak. I decided I really need to get these flimsies sandwiched and quilted. Hopefully I can do one after the other.

    I am enjoying my Ruler's Work Craftsy Class I am taking. I do everything on paper first, then try the actual quilting. I find it really fun. I enjoy learning new things.

    I envy your quilting mojo, Jeanie...I seem to want to play it safe when I sit down to quilt. Good luck getting yours done, givio.

    Been cutting fabrics for our guild challenge...didn't get March's done, so now have 4 blocks in 2 sizes to sew...just got the fabrics cut...now to sit and sew before next month.

    Made chicken soup today...local grocery had hind quarters for .49 per # if you bought 10#...too good to pass up. Made half of it for the soup....have a cup....

    That is a great price OK!!!! Haven't seen any that good for a long time. Since my family loves dark meat, we used to buy a ton of those leg quarters. Especially for family BBQ's.

    I am working on the last two blocks to finish my 25 Wild flying geese king size. You all are an inspiration to me to finish my UFOs. One stitch at a time....one project or twelve at a time. Got my embroidery machine figured out, now to get the serger threaded up today and working again....first time since we moved here in 2005.

    Ok, thanks for the chicken soup cup! Love it. What spices and veggies did you put into yours?

    Life certainly has its twists and turns in it...enjoy the journey, smell the roses along the way.

    OK, I saw the picture of your 1 1/2" strip quilt. What's the finished size? You are so industrious with the little pieces. :-) Good for you!

    Good for ya Sue!!!!
    I went to Brownwood to the Sew & Share. She doesn't usually open every Tues. (Her normal open days are Fri - Sun.) She does open every other day for Sew & Share as the Brownwood guild meets on the other Tuesdays. Well the guild met this morning instead of in the afternoon so she opened up & there were several of us sewing. I won't make it next week to the normal Sew & Share as we will be having our flooring laid that week, hopefully!

    Sounds like fun dublb. We don't have a quilt shop in our town. Have to drive north (2 shops). The one to the South of us closed at the end of last year. (I did not care for her fabric selections at all, but I did take a few classes there.)

    Looks like you are moving right along QNS!!!

    I am using the ruler below for SITD quilting on my BH Mystery Quilt. Man does it work well!!!

    Ah, that ruler looks cool. I could use help with my STID. Is it for a long arm only, or will it work for quilting on a domestic?

    SBG - I use it on my Brother PQ1500S. You need the Westalee Ruler Foot for your machine as it fits perfectly in the middle. I am taking the Crafsty Ruler Class, but she does not mention this ruler. I just happened to see it on the Westalee site. The Westalee Ruler Foot does not "jump" it just skims the surface of your quilt.

    Sounds helpful!

    Today I went to lay eyes on a machine that is being auctioned off tomorrow night. It's a Singer 319W, black, their first zig zag model.... It looked and moved great, just needs some needles and a new power cord. I am going to bid on it. It's pretty unusual.

    Sounds like fun. I still have the first machine I bought when I started working - a Singer 503 Slantomatic. What a great machine, even though I don't use it any more. It has cams that snapped into the top for zig zag and other decorative stitches. It was top of the line at the time. The nice thing about these old Singers, is that you can grease and oil them yourselves. They rarely need service.
