    Block 2, Home Treasure. Sweet Little Bonnie is black and loves to eat hay and cupcakes!

    {This block has been a bear from start to finish. I accidentally set my directions for a 6" block instead of an 8" block, had no assembly instructions, cut off some points, then added a border to make it larger rather than making a do-over. This is going to do!}

    I eat, I sleep, I quilt, I eat, I sleep, I quilt... awwwww retirement! I earned it, I deserve it, I'm lovin' it!

    Cute story about that block, Jan. I've been trying to find thistle fabric. I know donkeys love to eat them, so I think ponies would too. We had a shetland when my daughter was young (Little Joe) and he ate everything in the pasture. I found a picture of Audrey riding Little Joe so I will try and fabric transfer it to my quilt! I also have pics of my boys on William, another pony we had (not shetland, bigger). Also quiltworthy....

    I'm so excited about this wonderful quilt. I spent another $20 yesterday on more half and quarter yards of things that will just be perfect to fussy cut for this quilt. And I already had so much pony theme fabric!

    I have been busy with my Boom 19 swap blocks, but will finish those soon and be able to get back into the pony blocks. If you want to see my Boom blocks, there's a link in my sig line. They are so much fun.

    -Thanks SBG, so glad you enjoyed my stories. Welcome Just Jan, and I love your blocks. As we say here, its your quilt, and do the blocks as you wish and we will all cheer you on to the next one you choose to do.

    We had DH cousin and wife come in yesterday...we all love a good card game. They had ordered an ice cream freezer through Amazon.com and wanted to make a batch here. Boy, did it ever bring back memories of childhood and ice cream every Sunday all summer long! The ice cream churned up sooo good along with the chocolate cake J. carried down with them. They left it here to return and make another batch again. She used a bundt pan to bake the Chocolate, Chocolate, chocolate cake and i liked her idea. I always have used the 9 x 13 pan sized for it. Looking forward to when they can come down again.

    Doing housework this morning ( i do a bit now and then.) Shredding all those credit card offers and bak print offs. So afraid I might destroy or toss the wrong paper out, it takes me forever to do a box or two. Not seeing as well with mine one eye, but moving ahead the best that I can do.

    Needing to get the next Stack and Whack on the vertical board and finish up the rows and setting the rows together for my wonderful neighbor who had started it here. Miss her, but family always comes first with a Mother's heart and multiplies double for grandchildren. It took me a month to sew mine together in June.

    Ok, those are so cute! JeanieG talks about her bins for different sized strips and organized by size. Never have gotten that far into cleaning up my QR. I may send you my fat quarters to fit into your containers! It is getting to the point where it all overwhelms me. I Just want a few things to work on and find I have collected far too much stuff. I have been down sizing this past year seriously, and have made a good start in things, but a long ways yet to go.

    Maybe we need to have a sale and sell almost everything, so we can not worry about so much outside and inside. Nursing home scene does not appeal to me yet, but I can see it coming in the future..what will be, will be. I have been in denial long enough. Time to put my 'big firl' pants on and look hard at reality. Time will tell.

    Have a good day and good week everyone.

    Well NinaSue, it made you happy to visit those quilt shops and buy that fabric. If you never use it, it's ok. I have gobs of fabric too, but at least I have whatever I need for whatever I want to do. Just leave your family a directive of where to donate it when you are gone!

    It happened again. I quit getting notifications for this thread! DB & his family have come & gone. The DGK's play was wonderful! We had a few days of peace & quiet & I started sanding the woodwork in the dinning room. DH went over tit all w/ a quick pass & called it good. It might have been good if this was newer paint but this is old enamal & I know that it hasn't been painted since 1982 or before as DGParents hadn't repainted that room since they bought it. It looks like the people that owned it between us & then didn't either. I am having a hard time getting the shinny stuff smooth. I have about 1/3 of it done.

    Bev - might have been easier to just replace the moldings! What a lot of hard work!

    Sigh Jeanie these 97 yro boards are rock hard & would be very hard to get outta the house. It is actually easier to sand 'em down. I did get some more done yesterday but then the treasurer of our HOA came by & we talked politics for a couple of hours so no more got done after that. Today is DGD's b-day party w/all of her kid friends. (The one before was just supper w/family.) It just so happened that my DB was in town for that. I had promised this party to her when they were still talking about moving here. She is still not happy about the move. Of course she misses all her DF's in Houston. SHe has 2 DR. appoiintments next week in Houston so she will have a 3rd b-day party there w/her DF's & other set of DGP's.

    Lucky gal to get 3 BD Parties Bev! You are a great grandma!

    It is always hard for children to change schools. It is frightening! I remember going to a Catholic 1-8 Grade School. I went all 8 years, and most of the kids in my class were there all 8 years. When I went to Jr. High (7-9) at that time as a 9th grader, I was scared to death! I did not know very many of the students, and had never changed classes like they did. I did make new friends, even though I was shy.

    Jeanie, I changed schools at that same age. We moved towns about 3 hours away and I had grown up with all the same kids in school until then. I remember the horror of walking the hallways between classes, and seeing the sea of faces, not a one familiar. It was traumatic.

    Bev, I think your life is about to get ten times busier with your family moving to town... but in a good way!

    Oh so many similarities, ladies...I was in a one room country school...22 kids in the school, 4 in my class. I went to 7th grade and 50+ kids in my class, moving from class to class...what a change for me too.

    Tonight's the last night for the NC family...it's been a fun week with lots of food prepared and consumed! Wisconsin GD is going to spend the week so house will not be quiet for a while! Later...
