    OMG, QNS, talk about shuffling all those fowl around! LOL It tires me out just thinking about it!

    Carrie, what nice table runners for grandma. Have a great time visiting with all the relatives!

    NO big deal, Jeanie. There are just 7 roosters (a hen or to in that count) and 9 young chicks. Off to help dh this morning caring for them and to hunt for the 'hidden' duck eggs or there will be a hatch in the duck yard.

    Mirabelle...I do hope it isn't rotor cuff. I do know how painful that can be and hope that I've caught mine early enough that surgery won't be required. Quilt in the Square has the new PP block posted. I have that in my bucket list.
    QNS....I took a nap yesterday's too. For some reason I was really dragging. What will you do with the little guineas? Are they considered a meat bird?
    Carrie...nice quick gift for DGM. Enjoy your family today.
    Anael....great camera work. I bet those beans will taste good!
    grannyQ....thanks for the update on your son. I trust he will continue to improve and you can take him off of your worry list. Continued prayers for DH and DS.
    It is humid this morning so I'll try to find a fan. Not too much else going on except church later this afternoon.

    Thanks GGal, I will know in a couple of days, I did manage to do some quilting today, just gritted my teeth and got on with it. I am going to try and quilt 3 baby quilts before Thursday (wish me luck).

    DH didn't go fishing, he was supposed to leave Friday afternoon so I drove home early from Townsville only to have a phone call to say the charter boat had cancelled the trip due to bad weather. Boy was he disappointed, didn't speak to anyone for almost 2 hours.

    Will send a pic of my July block to Anael tomorrow for approval so I can post it on Monday, I hope she approves it or else I am in big trouble Chat to you all tomorrow. Goodnight

    Three young hatched guineas and more to come, we hope. They eat bugs and ticks; yes, the dark meat is the best when they are 12 weeks old...right now we are trying to 'build' up the number of guineas. Down to five adults from 12 last year. Still trying to figure out what happened to a young duck...my count was one short this morning.

    Aye, Mirabelle, I think you are first again with your July Block. Mine is cut out to piece. No time yet to do so. Still doing my 'pilot' job. Is there light at the end of the tunnel yet? Looking forward to seeing that light.

    QNS--good news about some new little ones. Hope you can find the missing duck.

    Ggal--hope you have a good day. Do you have sewing on the list of "things to do"? It's supposed to get warm here today too.

    Karen--praying your scan isn't anything major and that you don't hurt yourself this week with the baby quilts!

    I need to email my July MB to Anael too. I got it done a while back before I knew I needed it for July. I have one other done that I know I won't need until sometime after Sept. August and Sept blocks will get done sometime later this month.

    Up to six little guineas now; I am excited. There's four more eggs under the hen who hatched the six and four on the other side under a hen that left them for a whole day, so do not expect them to hatch. Time will tell the tale. Mother Guinea was off her third group she is sitting now, but was headed back after getting a drink and eating a bite. May have to make a 'guinea' quilt. LOL!!

    Hi Everyone, I am busy pinning my July MB as we speak...I got the pattern from Quilterscache and I'm kind of disappointed that when I print the patterns from the site they print out 1/4 " short....and this is not the first time and I've used different printers... I had to draw it up using EQ7 and it comes out perfect so I know it's not the printers....

    You're going to have bunch of Guineas running around QNS...

    Mirabelle...I hope you're taking it easy on that shoulder....you don't want to damage it anymore than what it is...I've had rotator cuff surgery...couldn't even lift a salt shaker off the table...

    No rain here for 3 days now...everything is drying out but it is as humid as ever....DH & I went to the beach for the fireworks on Thursday....It was great....lots of kids running around spashing in & out of the ocean....It was over too quick....
    I'm going to see about the table today Jeanie...I hope they have it in stock...it has to be ordered then shipped to the store for pick up...
    Yes, Everyone have a good weekend....

    HELP....my DH has decided to clean the frig....before morning coffee....!!!! There is now nothing in it and he found a bottle of Pepsi that has been there since before I came over 3 years ago. It was way behind the crisper drawer where no one would ever look for it but since the entire shelf with the crisper drawer attached is now outside to be power washed...it appeared. I hope that the fridge is the only thing he decided to deep clean today but there is no telling where this will end once he gets the "bug"!!!!!! Have a great day everyone!

    Dd goes through my refrigerator and pantry looking at expiration dates and 'cleans' out everything 'expired' in both, throwing it into the garbage, even if it is unopened...everything time she comes visiting. And makes a 'big' deal from my lack of 'good housekeeping' even if it is a small little little dark spot on the back side of my john. Or if the guest bedroom is 'too' cluttered with boxes (from quilting room). She seems to 'forget' that it is my house and my life here.
    I love her dearly, but, she needs to come visit ME.

    And when Dh said he would do the dishes every other day, the odd dates on the calendar, I said "Ok" but he forgets what day or date it is. Unless he has made a big mess of the kitchen, I just smile and clean it up anymore.

    Oh how I hate when DH decides to "pick up" or "clear out"....I totally understand Ladies how you feel...") I hate when he tells me "You haven't used this in years"!!!

    Oh I know the feeling. If only they would ASK if you still want something, not just assume! So frustrating to go get something and it is not there any more! And I'm not a keeper of lots of stuff!

    QNS--we (my sisters and I) do the same thing to my mom (checking expiration dates), but she doesn't cook other than the bare min. and we don't go looking for things...it is just we do the cooking when there so check dates on things before using them in a recipe. We try to look inconspicuously so she doesn't notice though. Sometimes we throw things out, but make sure she knows it so she can replace.

    Ggal just make sure he doesn't go into your sewing room it is the opposite here, I am the thrower outerer, I don't like a lot of "stuff" around me, but DH could easily turn into a hoarder if I didn't "accidentally" move his stuff, he has told me that I am not allowed to touch anything in his store room but I have to go in there cause that is where our drinks fridge is, so of course while there ?????? I am not admitting to anything, lets just say he really doesn't know what he has

    Now I have to have a shower and got to the Post Office to send my MB on its merry way, where will it land??? Have a great day everyone, I have finished one baby quilt completely and another is half quilted, my shoulder does not hurt, my shoulder does not hurt, my shoulder does not hurt

    Mirabelle, take care of yourself, please. You are so talented in what you achieve, and create wondrous beauty for the world to see.

    How many more months have we to go, Honchey, before you have to come up with another idea to 'bind' us together again so we can continue onward? It has been so much fun every month seeing everyone's MB.

    Oh, another baby hatched, so now we have seven little guineas in the box from this hatch. Dh complained that the old hen pecked him when he took the little hatched guinea, and I said 'She's a good Mama!'

    I can 'see' my cutting table and cut some MB work today and FFC. It felt good to be working in the quilting room on projects.

    And today we bought in two more little guys...brings the total up to eight from this hatch and 3 before and the hen guinea is still sitting on eggs. Reason why we bring them in is 'cause the other hens would cause them harm and if chicks are left under the 'mother' sitting...she may abandon the nest of eggs and take the live babies with her, causing the other eggs not to hatch at all. Favorite food right now is cottage cheese and cooked yolk. They are quick moving little guys and will let us know that they are hungry, cold or too hot. Already running after flies that enter their space.

    Honchey--I will be looking for the email with other names/months for the MBs. Too bad about the oops with your July MB...at least you were able to get it done yet today.

    QNS--great job making some progress on the cutting table. I know when I was cleaning the clubhouse, I got to the point where I just *had to* sew! I still have one tub of flannels to sort, but figure that will wait.

    I hope to get some time in the clubhouse this week since my shoulder continues to do better. Grandma was very excited to receive some new table runners.
