    So glad you stopped by Jan! I love how you placed those little blocks! Back to the drawing board for me now!

    Hi Jan. Glad to hear from you. Love the picture of your quilt again! So many memories of making that quilt.

    Fact: our young ducks do not like rain or to be sprinkled! Hatchery sent our 15 hen chicks with one extra surprise. Although hatched in mid-May, that extra one is a rooster crowing his little heart out because he ended up with 15 hens. LOL! Chiggers are terrible this summer. Every time I stick myself outside, I am very sorry for doing so. Looking forward to staying home for a couple of weeks and trying be bored! LOL! Too much to do!

    Love, laugh, quilt and smile.

    janRN, Beautiful quilt! I like how it's set with the bright turquoise and dark blue. That really shows the blocks off nicely.

    My tomatoes were attacked by hornworms! They pretty well ravaged them before I found them. Picked them off and they are 'squish city'. I guess I'll have to break out the Thuricide, a natural worm killer.

    I also have an update on my baby birds. They left the nest yesterday but we only found one of the four. Hubby found a bulging snake in the garage, so that's probably were the other three babies are. So sad! He tossed the snake far away from the house but didn't kill it because it's a king snake. We have too many mice to be without a snake. The one survivor bird was fluttering around but I didn't see it fly up into the air. Mama bird was close by and checking on it. Later that evening I tried to find it but it was gone. I hope the Mama got it to fly to safety.

    Mice are attracted to food and shelter and so are rats. Snakes and cats get rid of them. DGPs fed black snakes by leaving milk in the barn for them. Solution: get cats, lots of cats and the mice will move away or be killed. Ask any farmer who were troubled by them. Feed the cats where the mice are housed. Our choice here was cats not mice. We are being invaded with flies. Hate them,too. Have hung up the half water filled quart plastic bags above the door frame that hangs down over the door with two shinny gold pennies in it. Seems to help a little bit. Think they ride in on DH back coming in the door. Or he hesitates as he opens the screen door and they fly right in.

    Our 'rains' are a full 5 minutes of storms moving in and out again. Very dry here, so happy we did not plant a garden this year.

    Bible Sampler is much like Laura Aaron Hird's other three books: 6 inch finished blocks. One I am working on does not have a squared up piece...trying to pp it, if not, I will rid myself of it and continue onward.

    There is no painting going on today. I drove DD to San Angelo to see a chiropractor. The one in Brady is outta town. This one is partnered up w/the one in Brady. Anyway DD's shoulder is hurting very badly. She tore her rotator cuff when she was 14. Well this chiropractor told her that she is also having nerve pain in her neck also. He treated her w/a cold laser & iced her down for 20minutes. She is supposed to see the chiropractor in Brady on Monday. In the meantime she needs to ice everything down every 4 hours. Oh yeah, it took him 4 try's till he was able to do an adjustment in her neck 'cause her neck is so stiff and swollen.

    I just read an amazing thing on the 'picture' section under 'podunk' project. Windows ten adjusts all the FW sampler quit patterns (probably later patterns in in the series of FW) and causes the blocks to come up short both in templates and paper piecing. Wow! Instead of using PDF files, go through Acrobat Reader and it prints them out the right size. We all adjusted in our seams, I am sure but that was an eye opener for sure.

    We have a nest of sparrows near the back porch. I guess it's time for the babies to fly out. Our dog found one wet in a pan of water today, that my husband uses to catch rain for our chicken to drink. The chick was wet, except for it's head. I wanted to rescue it from our rat terrier (hunting drive kind of dog), so I picked it up and put it in a bowl to let it dry. I didn't realize it was old enough to fly, and thought it had fell out of the nest. Silly me, I put the bowl in the house to keep it away from the dog. Now the chick is dry, and it's flying around in the house and I can't catch it. I'm trying to throw a towel over it, which is what I used to do when I had pet finches. It worked for them! But this little beastie is going to places that are not flat enough for this trick to work, and it keeps escaping my towel.

    QNS, good tip! Thanks for the info.

    Not to mention all the poop everywhere! We spotted our wayward baby bird. The dog found it out under some bushes. Wonder why it won't fly? It flutters around and seems healthy and alert, but it won't be safe on the ground. It has to fly. Hope it can fly soon.

    Givio, did my baby bird picture look like a sparrow? They have a funny garish "smile" because there's a yellow edge all the way around their beak, which I'm sure they will grow into later.

    givio when night falls it should put its head under its wing and then you can catch it...love the rescues and unfortunately the reality that nature is in charge most days.
    Bev what a care giver you are...peace to you.

    Back to working on my farm project..have a about 10 days to have it all done and ready...time crunch.

    SBG, Mine was older than yours-- it didn't have the fluffy down anymore. It was consistently brown. Yours looks like the breast is lighter, and on my monitor, it looks more dark brownish-black. It doesn't look like a sparrow to me. I should have paid attention to the beak, then I'd have realized it was old enough to fly... I left the door to the backyard open, and somehow it got out when I wasn't watching. Now, instead of a bird in the house we have flies. :-(

    QNS, I can identify with you. We have plenty of mosquitoes too besides the flies.

    Givio, I am using the old trick of a freezer quart plastic bag half filled with water and two bright pennies in the bottom and hanging over my bedroom door and QR door to scare the flies away. Seems to work most of the time, so dh ask me to put one over his bedroom door too and his bathroom. Jury is still out if it works for him. Funny, 'cause he left the chicken compost uncovered by the door, encouraging flies to gather by the kitchen door, then opened it and encouraged their flight inside the kitchen by moving slow through the kitchen door!

    Success in making Dove in the Window, block 29 by paper piecing it. Wow. It was not an easy block to do. No quilting today. DH cousin and wife are coming to play cards again. Made bread this morning. Love it when they come; we all have fun and enjoy the day. Have a good Day.

    I got to sew today. I made 2 more 9Ps. I also laid out my ORL to see how many more blocks I needed. It has been my leader & ender project. I thought I might need a few more blocks but am happy to report that 23 is enough.

    Glad you got some sewing time in Bev! That ORL is coming right along. So glad mine is done, I'm anxious to get it sandwiched so I can start quilting it.

    I am going to the Brownwood Quilting Guild meeting today! I need this kinda break! After the meeting we all will meet at the LQS & have a sew & share. I am excited. I did paint yesterday afternoon. I have it planned out where I will finish painting the utility room by Sat.
    On the 10th DM took a tumble at church. Her foot has hurt ever since. Well DD made her an appointment to see the Dr yesterday. They have taken an X-ray as they think she has broken her foot. We will know today. I bet she will have to use a boot.

    So sorry about your Mom's fall, Bev. Hope the foot heals quickly. And YAY for your day with the quilt guild. That really sounds like fun!

    I'm counting the days til Friday... I'm taking a class called "The Secrets of Free Motion Quilting" on Friday and Saturday. I can always use more learning on FMQ, especially since now I have the sit down longarm.

    I had a wonderful time today. I got the borders for the Walk About quilt, the sashing & cornerstones for On Bear Creek (aka On Ringo Lake), 2 of the 9P blocks & the block for a 12" block swap I am part of, all cut out. I loooove going to the Sew & Share!

    Yes DM's foot is broken. We will see about getting her a boot tomarrow.
    Well DD will be tending to that as DH & I are going to his late cousin's house again.

    Bev too bad the foot is broken! Hope she heals well in the boot.

    Can't wait to see your Ringo Lake/ Bear Creek finished! Looks like you have made a lot of changes. I made changes too. Didn't like peach and aqua so I made mine orange and royal blue. I also skipped the on point setting and did a straight setting, which eliminated the big triangles all the way around. Instead I did a zig zag border around mine. It looks different, and I love it.

    I finished up quilting the interior of Ringo Lake tonight. All I have left is the zig zag border and I've run out of ideas. The lady teaching the FMQ class on Friday invited us to bring unfinished quilts to try our new skills on. I'm going to bring that and ask her for suggestions on quilting that border. It's close to done... finally! I know you started late, Bev, but I started with the group at the very beginning... so it seems to have been in the works forever.
