    JeanieG ... no laughing! Important you do what you like ... and not be like me and realize my errs too late. And no loss, being that you like Fusions so much, you'll definitely find a use for the fabric!

    QNSue ... what a special addition to your PC with your own artwork The first pic shows, but unfortunately, not the second. Was this a pic of your pony Strawberry? or another favourite steed? Totally curious what the 2nd pic will be!

    Picture one and two is showing up for me....why me and not you QuiltE??? One is head of a horse, and two is the 'whole horse' ....both are young colts, not my mare.

    Like your layout and colors, JeanieG. Nice eagle shot, DD.

    DD...great block from GrannyQq and I love your other picture too. Is that where you live?
    Anael...progress again. That little guy is a real fighter! I'm so happy for you.
    Mirabelle...again another winner. I bet your daughter loves it. Hummm...we can pretend to be Superman and peek at the new MBs...but pretending just doen't work too well through the computer screens. I agree with QuiltE...send you DH on a fishing vacation but do have some very special time for each other.
    Honchey...all packed yet?
    carrie...looking forward to seeing your finished quilt. You certainly accomplish a lot when you get to the club house.
    Jeanie...I like your quilt without cornerstones. Nice progress!
    OK...I guess I missed it but I haven't figured out just where you are now. I thought the family was coming to you.
    JanRN...is the new machine getting any work yet?
    Janie...are you home now?
    Dubib..a great quilt as well as a very handsome DS! Thanks for the picture.
    QNS...you are a real artist! Those horse pictures will make your PC quilt to personal!
    i'll pick up my quilts tomorrow! Can't wait to see the finished quilting and get the bindings done!

    DD love the eagle atop the tree--thanks for the pic. It gives us all a perspective of where you live. I was just telling GS Zeke when I saw my first one about 35 years ago. A March day with snow lingering on a plowed hillside field. Took a second look when the "field" moved and flew up. Now they are here every winter. A gorgeous sight when they are soaring as well. GrannyQ did a wonderful job on your block.
    I can't wait to show Emily your horse drawings, QNS. She will love them.
    I really like the darker blue, Jeanie.
    GGal Yes to both. I'm at DD's in WI watching the 8 and 10 yo. Left Monday home tomorrow. Meanwhile back at the farm DS and family from NC drove in today. 3 yo opens the door and yells "We're here" and no one there to answer as DH was at an appt. How disappointing for her. Mom and Dad knew where we were all at--other DS was still doing chores so he did the welcoming.
    Back to supper. Pork chops/rice/cooked carrots and apple salad.
    Later. Hope my block arrived today--don't know if I have a squishy at home either.
    Don't worry spider.

I decided not to use cornerstones on this quilt either. I'm still moving the blocks around, but not as much as when I first put them up there on the display wall.

    Anael - Bram looks so tiny in that crib! Hopefully he is feeling better, I guess he would be if he has been moved from the incubator!
    It's your quilt & it's comin' out wonderfully!

    deranged_damsel..neat picture of the tree/eagle.

    GrannyQ--I like your scrappy block for d_d...great job!

    Jeanie--I like the dark blue sashing.

    QNS--your drawings look great...good idea to make them into blocks and add to your PC quilt.

    Well I didn't get all 3 borders on today, but was able to get everything cut (have to cut borders and then batting and backing the right size for each when doing QAYG), including binding. I did get the first border all done and 2 sides of border #2 on. I brought in tonight and have everything pinned for the next 2 sides. After school tomorrow we need to run to the grocery store and post office and then will have time in the clubhouse in the afternoon again. It is so nice to be home all week and feel good too!

    YES!!! I big ol beautiful Bald Eagle I new you ladies would appreciate the pic I felt really lucky to have my camera in the car with me that day, we pulled over and just watched it for a few minutes, makes my heart beat faster every time I see one

    I took this pic last time I went to visit my parents house, its about 70 miles to their house, over and around two mountain ranges, it takes two hours to get there and a very scenic drive.

    there are ALOT of old abandon homesteads along the way, like the one in the picture. it is sweet and sad all at the same time. and always leaves me thoughtful

    These are the third and fourth lines from a poem by Joyce Kilmer that I've always thought strangely beautiful.

    I suppose I've passed it a hundred times, but I always stop for a minute

    And look at the house, the tragic house, the house with nobody in it.

    You can find the rest of the poem here:

    Just had to send it to you DD. Night all

    QNSue ... weird? they both showed up when I came back on just now!! Now do tell us, when did you draw these horses? Nicely done! Will add such a nice personalization to your quilt, along with the photos you included too!

    GGal ... and we are excited with you to see these quilts!

    OKSGlad ... DGD no doubt was disappointed, but I bet she'll love being able to Welcome YOU home tmro! What a grand weekend coming up with you and everyone home for the holidays! (and no doubt the Easter Bunny too!)

    CarrieM ... and so good to hear/see you say, "It is so nice to be home all week and feel good too!" ... particularly the feel good part!

    DublB .. have a good weekend!

    OKSGlad and DDamsel ... sadly there are too many homes with no one in 'em! We have many here too ... and then there are the barns too, that are missing their people and animals.

    Here you go QNSue ... And now, Everyone ...

    *snicker*
    Looks like DDamsel and I are on the same musical wavelength!!!!
    While I was finding the tune, you beat me to it!
    (and the SAME one, at that!)

    I remember singing it as a kid ... and now I'll be humming along to it for the weekend, I'm sure!

    No, that is not the one; the one I remember was sang by Rosemary Clooney which is also on u-tube.

    I drew the horses this afternoon; things 'felt' right to do it and so I did with a black fabric ink pen. May draw more later for the border.; undecided on the border, although I can see the medium and dark fusion browns looking like leather in the border. I used to draw and oil paint horses back before marriage to dh and sell them at the local saddle shop for pin money in junior college in my hometown. I painted a few pictures of scenic views in Alaska, but after having our first daughter, Sam, I gave all the paints away, and centered my attention on family.

    I did sent a copy of the pictures to OksewGlad for her gd who loves horses. I believe they can be printed off on cloth paper and used by them in a quilt.

    Who knows, maybe in my 80s (that gives me another 10 years to improve myself!) my fame for drawing and painting will gain attention in the world ! LOL!!

    **jumps into DDamsel's brain**
    *****scrambles it up!!!!!!!*****
    So if you knew that one ... how about this one, DDamsel? ... (and others too?)
    ♪♪♫http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDNDELFF1ok♫♪♪



    QNSue ... it's the same words as Rosemary's. I think I spent more time than DDamsel, listening to several enjoying the tunes, and thus why she was so quick on the draw! So you just whipped up those drawings in short order! My goodness, QNSue ... you could go back into business selling them again! And oh how nice that'd be to have more in the borders ... or perhaps as cornerstones in the borders, if you didn't want to do it all around? or, keep those two and use them for 2 of the corners, draw 2 more ... and yes, make 2 more PC blocks! Sew Many Possibilities!

    Aw heck, DDamsel, I thought those cowgirls were kinda cute!
    And I liked their peppy-ness more than Johnny. I fell asleep when he was singing!!

    As for a Serger manual, I ripped it up .... because it seems you have LOST your FFC fabric! Oh Oh!
    Besides you don't need the serger to sew those Lil PC Blocks together!!!!

    BTW ... have you quilted with your new machine yet? I want to seeeee!!!!
