    JanRN and Givio, your packages were sent out today and you should get them in three days.

    Thanks SBG, for getting us back on line again here. I have missed our chats. No FW blocks to show this week..until later.

    Yes, it was traumatic being without our thread! Hope all the gang finds us here.

    I don't have blocks to show for this week yet, either. Tomorrow night is my charity quilters meeting and I need to get some stuff finished to take with me to donate, so I probably will be late getting my FWS blocks done this week.

    Honchey, sorry you had a bad experience with the Boom swap. I'm hoping for the best. Mainly, I just want to play with making blocks with everyone else's fabrics for them. The fabric I'm sending in is some of the loot I got from Hancock's liquidation.

    And I experimented with blowing up some FW1930's templates 200% and they came out perfect for 12.5" blocks. Here is the one I played with so far:

    Remember this one? It's block #9, Autumn!

    Today is so unbearably HOT here... even the dog doesn't want to go out.

    Thanks SBG....aren't we quite a group?

    Nice rendition for your swap...I haven't participated in the book swaps...years ago did the doll quilt swap and enjoyed it.

    Everybody, I just got a message from Susan (JuneBillie) that her father died tonight. She asked me to tell you all for her, so I am... I know they have been expecting it, but it's still a shock when it happens and is final. Let's keep Susan and her family in our thoughts and prayers.

    Glad I found yinz. After all the years we've spent together I can't imagine not talking to yinz at least once a week. So sorry for Susan's loss, and as you said it's still difficult even when expected. Let's enjoy today, remember fondly those we've lost, and give thanks and positive thoughts to those we love. I include yinz in my list of blessings.

    Thanks for the link to this new thread. Got to get busy and take photos of my blocks and post. I cannot believe this is almost over! I have so many UFO's to get to work on. Can't wait to finish up some probjects.

    Ah, Jan changed her avatar pic. Is that a new quilt you made with the license plate on it? I love mine!

    Thanks, QNS, I appreciate the trade of scraps.
    SBG, As you know, I got your scraps, thanks again!
    I hope the other girls got the license plates from Michigan. :-)
    SBG I was thinking that if I expanded the templates 200%, then it would mean that the template wouldn't fit on normal size printing paper. I wanted to try it though, but didn't because I thought it wouldn't work. Did you do it on a regular home printer? I can't imagine how that would work on mine...
    I'm with Jeannie. I have some blocks finished that I need to take pictures of and then post-- but looking forward to doing something else. It should be UFO's like Jeannie mentioned... but! I joined a Round Robin. So, I've been posting there in that Forum the last couple of weeks instead of here in the Blocks of Month and Week Forum.
    I don't want to leave FWS unfinished though! Still planning to continue with it....
    Susan, prayers that you will find the comfort you need at this difficult time.

    So sorry, Susan...you will have some good memories to hold onto.

    Oh sew good to see everyone chime in...like writing on a fresh piece of paper...kids called from Chicago...flight to home has been delayed could be 3:00a.m. before they get here...

    OK, that cow is too darn cute!! Makes me smile.

    SBG, I made that as a hanging for my front door--my neighbor's check out my door all the time to see what's new. They love this one.

    Jan, I was dreaming about changing up the hanging on my front door. I've got a full window on it, so it's perfect for hanging something. It's another one of those 'so many ideas, so little time' situations.
    OkSG, the pinwheels really add a nice touch too. I've always liked the pink and brown combination. I was expecting to see black and white-- so got a pleasant surprise. :-)

    Cute idea, Jan...

    Gladie, the cow is adorable. Well done! Hope your kids arrived okay.

    Givio, in order to blow up the templates I had to cut them apart and just do one or two at a time. It took several pieces of paper.

    So... good morning everyone!

    I noticed Jan's peace sign, too...

    Thanks on the cow..years ago I was given the HST's...I found the pink fabrics to work with...then about 2 years ago I found the browns in my stash and the cow evolved...added the green cause a cow's gotta have grass....givio we have a herd of brown cows, not the generic b/w variety....

    Kids missed flight last night due to delays...Will be here later this morning...not a good day with 3 little ones...Will be a busy 10-14 days..now to have spaghetti ready for lunch....

    Sounds like a good plan, Honchey.

    JuneBilly, thinking of you and your loss; celebrate the good memories that you have had with your Dad.

    OK, love that cute cow. Enjoy the children and hug them countess times a day .

    Cleaned up lunch,now time to get myself back in the QR. Later.

    Gladie, do you find yourself talking to the cows, asking them, "How now, brown cow?"

    Sorry, I couldn't help myself! I'll go sit on my hands now...

    Merging the threads would be great if they can do it. I just figured we had hit our limit... the brick wall at the end of the road. Maybe not...

    Well I found ya'll. I thought I was just having trouble w/the satellite in Brady but when I got here in Midland yesterday it still didn't work. SO....I sent a PM to Honchey & ta-da.
    I have some good news. The house had actually been on the market for one week. Wait, not even 1 week as that would be tomarrow. Any-way, we got a verbal offer today. I think we are gonna take it! We will probably have to deal w/all of this by e-mail as we are gonna head back to Brady tomarrow.

    Bev, one week, amazing! It must be a nice place.
    SBG, you printed from the CD, then cut apart the templates, then scanned each individual template? Then set to print at 200%? I like your "How now" remark. lol
    okSG, I've always preferred the brown cows at the fair. Jersey or Guersey?
    Honchey, looks like Kaffe Fasset fabric. Love those prints.

    Well the circular geese look just fine...we wouldn't have known any differently...

    Wow Bev. That's great...

    Guernseys, givio, except for the half dozen Jerseys our DDiL brought with her when she joined our family...have about 120 total, milking usually around 100...rest would be dry cows waiting the arrival of their next calves. This morning 2 calves...each with a heifer except not sure which one belongs to which cow...Will likely do DNA testing to determine parentage...we have the sire and dam info on all our animals plus who they are bred to...hot and sticky today...tomorrow's to be worse then cool off. Kids are having a great time together...
