    JeanieG of course you can PP those blocks, you are woman you are strong and invincible you can do anything

    Carriem I have looked at that BOM, it is in 2 colourways but not sure re cost etc, and you have to purchase the book to go with it. So I like the idea of the free BOM's.

    My embroidery club have given me some Mariners Compass machine embroider designs all done in the hoop to have a play with, don't know why I was given the task of checking out the blocks, I guess I always get things done who needs to sleep..

    DD started a new job today, will wait patiently for her to ring me and tell me all about her day, I have dinner cooked so am off to the girl cave to do some quilting. Update on Sammy, he is not getting any better, he is sleeping like a baby in my arms at night, I am not sleeping The weather has turned cool and I am in tracky pants and slippers

    QNS now that our grey skies have cleared will get a pic of our house to you this week

    Oksewglad we have ANZAC day here in Australia to honour our fallen soldiers, it is in April. We have parades and parties.

    brrrrrrrrr!!!! It's ccccccccccold here! Frost warning last night, at at 7am it was 2C, and never went about 8C today. Tonight frost warnings again. Whatever happened to global warming??? And to think that MiraB has succumbed to tracky pants and slippers!

    JeanieG
    ... great photo of your Pony! Really shows off your unique setting and border FCs nicely!

    QNSue ... de-layed ... heck, I don;t have my room fully settled yet. I got to the point where I decided I needed to do some sewing to determine where everything was best to land. So take some time for some sewing, to help you make your decisions.

    MiraB ... first two blocks look great. I wonder what they are "hinting" at, with their forewarning that not all blocks will be flowers. Hope that DDs first day went well! Now get that MC embroidery done for all the ladies to ooh and aah over!

    OKSGlad ... another day of "if you want to hop on the tractor?" Yes, the lawnmower would be worse. Just not so well built with the springs etc. in the seat. I don't think I've seen your PC plan til now ... WOW! That's going to be a real masterpiece! How does the Hera Marker mark? It's just plastic, isn't it? I printed my hexies on cardstock then cut with the rotary cutter. I liked the stiffness it provided for doing each ... and also when joining.

    Canadian Remembrance Day is November 11th and called just that. Eleventh Day of the Eleventh month ... and at 11:11 am, everything literally stops. For those not attending a service, the radios will have a mini-service, complete with a bugle call, with the traditional minutes of silence.

    OKSGlad you;ll find this interesting ... with the date, it often happens the same time as The Royal. The livestock show STOPS dead for that service which is broadcast on the PA systems.

    Poppies are worn from about the end of October til the 11th, in memory of those who fought in any war. Remembrance Day services are held that day, often outside and at War Memorials and Cenotaphs. Many have solemn parades to the service site. Often the smaller communities have their services on the Saturday or Sunday before the 11th. In my village, the school children walk a short distance to the local Cenotaph and participate in a service there.


    Tonight ... made a table runner with some of the excess blocks from what I posted earlier this week. And guess what? NO COWS!!!

    Anael ... have a wonderful time with the SewGrands ... I'm sure you won't be there all the time, so they can have lots of alone-family-time. All the same, I know you will be on a high, even when not with them!

    Hope you got your head back on ... we don't want them to grow up calling you the Headless Chicken Grandma! Guess we won't see much of you this weekend!!

    Karen--that Moxie BOM is pretty pricey if you do it as the BOM. I emailed them to see if they will be selling the pattern after the months are over (I don't think it is in the book). I don't have a problem buying the book for the technique and the pattern too, but would rather choose my own fabrics.

    Anael--have a great time with family today.

    Off to get ready for work at the quilt shop today. It's raining so it will either be busy since people can't enjoy the holiday weekend outside or slow because they are too busy sewing.

    ....... or busy because they are stocking up to sew away the long weekend!
    Have a good day at work, CarrieM!

    Bram and Isa were home at about 11 am. It was a very emotional moment for all of us. When I went home this afternoon they were sound asleep
    I don't know if I'm going to visit them tomorrow. I would love to but I think my DS and DDIL want some quiet time with the twins and Mick.
    I took Mick for a walk this morning as he felt a bit left out.

    So precious Anael--yes it will be an adjustment for little Mick-especially since there are 2 new intruders on his territory! I'm sure he enjoyed his walk with Oma.

    Anael, my heart is smiling! What a pleasure to have all your family together under one roof. Mick looks so sweet watching over the twins.

    Happy, special time for you and your family Anael.....the photo of watchful Mick & the twins....so nice!!!

    so many postings to go thru...I've decided to give all of you the MB names July thru September...I'll be working 10 days in June & three weeks the middle of July thru the beginning of August & traveling to NC in between and I don't want to forget...I didn't realize that when I said "yes" it would entail so many days...This "old lady" ain't what used to be.....

    The emails will be sent sometime this evening....

    I went to Quilting on the square and I really like the new block of the month ...there are 2 of them ....I can't download anything anymore this rotten Toshiba computer is areal PITA...I'll have to dig out the old one to do that...

    I thought she needed some snow in California...we had enough this spring to share....LOL!! Jeanie is so active, I can just see her and Mr. J doing the jitterbug!! PC riders know by now, I have a huge imagination.

    DH is helping me put my sewing room in order....or dis-order at the moment...machines are in place and electrical is next, he brought the light back in overhead. It will take awhile to arrange my stash and bring it back in again. Sigh! One step forward, three backwards. He is selling his machines and going to use mine. That might be good or bad... time will tell.

    Honchey, I have not started June yet. But if you want to complete our MB list that is OK with me....or next few months. I hope you noticed Mercysland joined us, therefore, we all posted our FWSQ and PC quilts in one place, so she could view them...almost all of us....my is still a work in progress.

    I hope you gave them a big hug from all of us....to the Sew Grands!! I hope you have started a photo album for all the baby pictures to share with them as they grow older...

    DD, I think you have Apple Orchard Ducks...they have that coloring with dark heads.

    awwwwwwwwwwww .... so many wonderful pictures of the SewGrands ... and their Oma too!
    So cute the Welcome Home Banner ... and clothesline all decked out!


    JeanieG and QNSue ... a great block, and as always, a story to go with the block. To me, that makes it all the more special! No many how many times I go to QC, there's still many I have not seen!


    I've been working on my June MB .... next are two Sampler Block Challenges ... will post separately.
