    Carriem age doesn't matter when you quilt, it bridges all barriers, my DD attended her first patchwork class at age 8 when she learned how to use a rotary cutter, make templates, sew a straight seam and make her first of many cushions, and she has been creating ever since.

    Anael I love your assembly line, I am sure that keeping busy making designer outfits during the past few months has been very therapeutic for you.

    Will start calculating the compass yardage tomorrow, I am thinking of making 2 of every one which will give me 36 blocks. Might make it for my DS so colour range will be limited. I have been busy today working on another MB for who ???? only me knows I already have April's block made, just trying to stay ahead a little, while trying to get some ufo's finished

    They say wisdom comes with age; guess I have not come of age yet...or I missed that bandwagon... each day gives us blessings that we can be thankful for and celebrate regardless of age. After all, we have a wonderful group here on B that we get to communicate daily on, around the world. It still amazes me; I would have never guessed times would evolve into times like these.

    As far as tunes go, how many remember, "Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail..."

    Love our pacing right now, leaving time to do a few other things and not get behind on our mystery blocks. For some reason my rows of PC are not hanging down evenly...three rows are off by couple of inches....guess I will try pressing them first...and seeing if I 'stretch' the row a bit.

    Dh moved the duck shed yesterday and discovered two nests inside, so now I have 3 dozen duck eggs to cook with over Easter...which is good, 'cause all the hen eggs I sold. Income tax is all done, big refund coming back,and dh told me to think of a new sewing machine and/or cabinet. Wow! That is a first in forty-seven years. So next month's FART trip will be a special one.

    Anael, your new machine looks great, and that is quite a line up of machines you have. Enjoy.

    Love the pic of your GS's, Anne. When growing up we colored eggs the night before Easter. I remember going to church on Sunday with brightly colored fingers! Mom always made sure we had our little white gloves on--not so much to look like little ladies but to hide the stained fingers LOL. Did yinz all get new Easter outfits? We did--always included new patent leather shoes and a coat and a hat (Catholic girls had to wear hats in church).

    QNS, yay! on the new machine and/or cabinet. You're so right about wisdom coming with age----I'm still waiting for wisdom but the age is creepin' up. I really feel old right now--my DGS is turning 20 on Sunday! DGD is 16 (going on 25 LOL) so I'm reminded that, yes, I am 64 even tho I think I'm in my 40's.

    Carrie your quilts are so beautiful that I was surprised that you don't FMQ.

    Anael, just think--it's the babies first Easter! Lots of "firsts" to come!!

    Jan, I was thinking about this comment last night and remembered what nice quilting you had done on the PC blocks. You do know how to FMQ. You just have to say sweet things to your Sweety and let her know that you're in charge. You're doing a slow waltz and she is off on a quick step. Tell her you want her close and slow so she can hear all the wonderful plans you have for your life together and that once she learns your pace, you will lead her into her beloved quick step. The motion with the fabric is the same as you did before, the feeddogs were down too, you just went slower than Sweetie wants to go now. This is all easy for me to say since I'm not in your shoes. I'm just trying to give you a different perspective and change those heart palpitations from dread because she is leading to affection because you're leading and truly enjoy one another! BTW....what have you named her?

    Honchey!!! Beautiful boys!!! I have a couple of blue eyed freckle nose boys myself

    Ok, ok... I KNOW that Im the youngest one here, are you suprised? I think that what drew this crowd together, the FW and PC is reflected in each of our personality, that bit of nostalgia that we each enjoy

    Nope I dont need the serger manual for anything EXCEPT my hand written notes doodled inside :S

    Just had to see how many of you remember this one!!


    JanRN
    ... I'm sharing this sun with you, and hoping that you're getting some of it down your way ITL! ... bright as can be and a bright blue sky with it!

    MiraB ... so GGal's tracking BBs, I'm tracking PCs and you're keeping the master birthday list? I hit the big 6-0 earlier this month. Nice of you to offer to calculate the Compass Block background fabrics ... do you have a program to do so? or you just enjoy painstakingly sitting down to calculate? After DH heads back to work (that's three weeks, less two days, right? ... you can go out and get your very own S16!

    Anael ... Love your Little Workshop! Hope that you are keeping a journal for the kids ... perhaps with samples of the fabrics, and the patterns too. They'll have fun looking at it in years to come. And be sure to include one of the diapers from the hospital! A friend's DGGD was a teenie one too, and she showed us the diaper ... how miniscule! Speaking of Easter outfits ... do you have bunny suits for them, for Easter?

    QNSue ... wheeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!! a new machine! ... and what will you chooose? Yipppeeeeeeeeee!!!! Of course, I have many fond memories of singing Peter!!!! OBTW ... I have been known to change my voicemail message with a line or two from such seasonal songs!

    And now everyone can travel down memory lane with Gene Autry, to get into the Easter spirit .........
    ♪♪♫http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0G6F0pyaT7c♫♪♪

    JanRN ... you had me chuckling at those Catholic girls with white gloves to hide the stains! Presbyterian kid here, we always had our gloves and hats for church ... and I always loved wearing hats, still do! In spring we'd have lacy white gloves to wear.

    GGal ... good sweet talk to JanRN and her Sweetie!
    hhmmmmm ... maybe a S16 is in order for you, QNSue? Yesssssssss!!!!
    IF and it's a big IF, I ever get a S16, would you please come and hold my hands too?

    DDamsel ... so do tell the #!!!!!! So you're telling me that I could be your Mother!!!!!!!!! SURE, call me OLD!
    Now here's your *giggle* of the day .......... when I read your comment I read it as ... "Nope I dont need the SUGAR manual for anything EXCEPT my hand written notes doodled inside :S" and then went huh???? Oh my ... and I haven't even been into the Easter candies!!! BTW I want to see pics of those blue eyed freckled kids (with red hair per chance?) covered in their Easter chocolate!

    We never had to wear hats to church or gloves! I don't like hats, only wore one once, when I got married.

    No QuiltE, I didn't make the twins bunny suits I told my DDIL I could make them outfits in yellow with little chickies but she didn't want me to. I know she has a tiny diaper and we're saving their smocks. I'm going to make a quilt with those smocks, maybe use the hats too.

    QNS, how exciting! A new machine to play with.

    DD, please, pics of your boys We love to see pics!

    I'm never going to be able to comment to everyone but I just have to say that QNS your drawings are absolutely phenomenal. I would kill to be able to draw like that.

    Honchey, loved the pictures of you grandsons. They each have their own little twinkle in their eye that suggests I would love to meet them.

    DD
    your eagle picture was really cool. I loved the eagle, but the setting, with the abandoned home and the tree was quite emotional.

    Anael, As always pictures of those babies just makes me feel so good. Congrats on the new machine.

    JanRN This year I made myself a promise that I would practise my FMQ faithfully. I always wanted to do it and I just wanted to sit down and expect it to be good right off the bat. Of course that's not how it works. I watched a million videos and made a gazillion pot holders and mini quilts for the grandkids' stuffies. The videos that really resonated with me were Pasty Thompson's. http://www.patsythompsondesigns.com/free-video/

    Scroll down to the Video 3 of 4 where she is working on pink fabric. I watched that so many times I could see it in my sleep. It seemed to really help me get the idea of smoothly moving the fabric. I am now comfortable enough to FMQ my donation quilts for my preemies and actually let other people see it.

    Can't stay on the computer long so forgive me if I miss anyone. Have a good Easter weekend all.

    Oh btw I turned 62 in February.


    Edited to add:

    For anyone who needs a good chuckle this one does it every time

    Thank you all for your comments on my grandkids...They came into my life starting at 65 so I had to wait a looooong time for them...a far cry from my Mom...she became a GM at the age of 38....

    I'm getting things in order for my trip...can't pack the car yet 'cause DH is using trunk space for his golf clubs...Which he is using today!!!! tomorrow will be the day "stuff" goes in the car....I can't wait...I'm getting antsy waiting...he does this ALL the time...as I "ready" things I stack them by the garage door...I am fortunate that I don't have to cart machines back & forth anymore...
    Oh, Easter...of days gone by....going shopping for the new outfit from top to bottom!!! ....then shopping for the fish on Friday...Kielbasa & rye bread for Saturday when my Grandma would make a white borsht with hard boiled eggs quarted and the kielbas sliced floating in it...My Dad loved it...I would only look at it...never ate the soup...The priest coming to the house to bless the bountiful table.....On Good Friday (Today) we all had to stop doing whatever we were doing...at precisely one o'clock ? and say prayers because that was the time Jesus died on the cross....So much has changed since then ..it seems we made time for all the rituals for that time...My GM was the best baker and egg dyer...Pysanky eggs were nothing new to her...I used to watch her..a straight pin stuck in a pencil eraser then into a candle flame then into a wax she would make intricate designs on the blown eggs then into the dye...I wish I had some of those eggs now..they were really beautiful.....Ahhh...traditions & memories... Hope all of you have a memorable and heartfelt Easter this year...now it's time to go back to the plan of the day.. it's almost one o'clock and time for a prayer...

    What? no Araucana eggs?

    I'm surprised QNSue, that you haven't decorated all the eggs!

    We seldom got to colour the eggs ... instead sat down with crayons to decorate as we wished (held in a trusty old chewing tobacco tin!)


    Anael ... I'm guessing emails from ???


    I just finished filling a whole bunch of milk bottles with crushed styrofoam ... ended up looking half feathered with the stuff sticking to me!

    QNS---my guess is the duck eggs are the big ones. We had some ducks start a nest in our asparagus patch several years ago. They made a nice omelet.

    QuiltE, you guessed right
    Why would you fill milkbottles with crushed styrofoam? When I read you looking half feathered I had a good laugh

    Wow Jeanie, you did see Elvis? How great is that!

    Yes, the BIG white ones are the duck eggs, the smallest being the guinea egg. No colored eggs, no little ones to hunt for eggs, just memories of the past.

    Working on different projects and UFOs, I apparently hated the Farmer's scrap quilt more than I thought, cause cannot be found now. Its buried deep down somewhere....I remember putting all the instructions with it; and my poor mind goes blank. Senior moments that last for days now..

    You all have a good Easter, and enjoy your family and friends. We did not plan any thing; nor did our bf, so they say they will be down tomorrow. Time will tell.

    Happy Easter to all. We will be going to church Sunday...we have a breakfast there before the service (potluck style). I did buy my kids some new clothes this past week (something they can wear to church), so guess you could say they got "Easter outfits". We *could* go to two different family meals...one tomorrow and one next Sunday. Not sure if we will go to either...DH is on-call for work so never know when he will have to go in.

    I got my quilt finished this afternoon and also started my extra blocks for my BB quilt. I will finish the extra blocks and get sashing on tomorrow. Here is a link to a couple pictures http://www.quiltingboard.com/quiltin...ml#post5964224

    I received my MB yesterday from Dublb, finally able to get the picture on my computer. Really don't like this different computer set up. Will try to post. Thank you very much Dublb I really like the block and all of the fabric colors.

    Happy Easter everyone, we have services at 7:00 am. and breakfast after our service. We have a new pastor this month at our church, so we are having services a little different but very interesting.

    All this Elvis talk ... there's an Elvis Festival every summer not far from here. All sorts of Elvis impersonators for young kids right up to the aged! No, I've never been, thought I attend virtually, thru all the TV coverage!

    Anael ... well I was pretty feathered with all that static-electricity in the styrofoam. I fill the milk bottles not just to make it look like milk, but more so, to help the labels show better while on display. Yes! Yes! get some new duds made for Bram! We don't want him to get any complexes wearing his DS hand-me-downs!

    QNSue ... Oh dear ... perhaps your Farmers Scrap quilt went to Hawaii with DDamsel's FFC fabric? Guess you'll just have to work on your FFC til you find it! Thanks for the wishes ... no GTG with friends/family, so I am "Home Alone" and enjoying the time!

    CarrieM ... your quilt looks great! Hope your friend likes it as much. Did you tell your kids about all of us having hats and gloves for Sunday's Best? And goes without saying that we girls always wore dresses and had a Sunday coat.

    GrannyQ and DublB ... ooooooh I like that RB+W! Hang in with your new computer. I hated my new programs for the first while, but gradually discovered their intricacies and there's been a LOT of great improvements, so I am now so thankful for all! It was well worth the perseverance!!

    Good Night, Ladies!
