    I am a happy girl, we won. That makes it 8 years in a row, final score 12 - 10 so very close game. Not much nail left on the thumb Little history, the game started 30 years ago as a bet and everyone thought it was a gimmick and wouldn't last, it is now televised to 97 countries across the world and has been compared to the US Superbowl.... Going go bed now for some sweet dreams

    MiraB ... hope you can sleep after that exciting game! With a 12-10 it truly must have been a nailbiter ... hopefully just an extra bowl of popcorn!

    OKSGlad
    ... yeaaaaa for Laredo!!! You MUST have been beaming with pride. Best thing of the show, right? Great Photos all around. Sweet DGDs pic. What memories they are going to have for their farm stay. Maybe you can keep them for longer during that 4 months? ... or a return visit? Huge Congratulations to to Mr+MrsOKSGlad for their 4-H HOF recognition. Definitely Well Deserved!! I bet there are not many couples (if any?) that have reached that pinnacle together. Great you found a Canadian cousin (even if he did start out in UK!)

    DublB ... Lucky for you that you can manage to finance both homes together. Not many are able to do so. Now the real work begins, right? Will you move into your new home right away? Or are you doing work there first? A plus from both ends ... you can work on each home with it being empty! Terrific Bonus!!!!

    Congrats to Mr & MsOKSewglad--you've worked hard and earned the honors. Thanks for the pics--yes, Anael, my first thought was yum! chocolate moo cows!

    Bev, great news about the house purchase. I don't envy you selling yours and moving (altho the only way my house will get really cleaned is if we move).

    Jeannie, I can almost hear those hammers pounding away. Finally the work will start--bet you're anxious.

    Anael, cool wheels!

    And keeping with the COW theme ... here's the first pics of Out To Pasture.

    Straight (not quite) line quilting on the Irish Chains, with FMQing in the borders.
    So what FMQing does one do for cows?
    Clover of course, and even the odd 4-leafed one mixed in, just like IRL!!

    Hi everyone,

    How much fun it is to log on and see all the activity and pictures.

    Bev: I am glad to see your block arrived. I was a little worried that you were having rouble with some of your mail so I sent it early. It only took a week. It's called Scrap Jar Star. I'm pleased for you that your house purchase is going well.

    OKSewGlad: I loved the pic of your grand daughters. Also would you mind repeating yourself about Laredo? I missed so much but am really interested to know if you had cattle over there and all the details.

    Aneal: Good set of wheels you have there. I admire you. I would love to ride a bike again, but I am too chicken in the city . I also want to roller blade, but fear of road rash is holding me back.

    Mirabelle, Whoo hoo. Isn't it fun when your team wins? I sort of remember what that was like. I am a CFL fan, but our team has stunk badly the last few years. Our season kicked off at the beginning of July and this year doesn't look good. Sigh.

    QuiltE, No Stampede for me. Not ever. You couldn't pay me enough to go. This week is the fair here, and I love to go through the livestock barns. The horses are my favourite, especially the Percherons, with the cows and sheep a close second.

    I won't change my mind about Spike Your English. I'm stubborn like that. I have challenged myself to get a whole bunch of WIPs and UFOs done. I really need to get the sheep quilt for my friend started. We will be gone most of Sept. between my Fossil Party in MB and our trip to the UK so there will no sewing that month. I will love to be the cheerleader this round, get all caught up and be ready for the next group project. My arm shall not be twisted.

    QuiltE, out of your comfort zone and into the clovers Great FMQ ! ! !

    Janie, if I don't have to I don't ride in the city either. I don't like it and I'm not used to it anymore. So I'm going out in the country.
    My DDIL started to roller blade this week, she has to get rid of some weight I told her to wear protective stuff but she just laughed and said she won't fall. I hope she doesn't!

    So JanieW is a daredevil ... and ready to roller blade! Beyond my desires ... too klutzy on my feet, let alone thinking of adding wheels to them. Bike, I'm OK, and envy Anael's free-wheeling ... while in a small village, the road in front of my place is busy, and the end of the road, either directions are highways. So has taken the fun and desire away. Miss it!

    Oh I knew you'd have brown cows too, Anael, just thought you'be be "patriotic" to those B+Ws! Yup, stepped up to clovers, and was really enjoying doing them. I think there was only once where I got myself into a corner and could not get out. A few places I probably could have done a better job of keeping a balance of lines, clovers and open space. Hard to keep an eye on all! Though almost wish it was NOT on that print .... so it would show better as I did like the look on the plain parts! At least I took a safe route for my first venture.

    Here's to a FUN Fair Time JanieW ... I love seeing the heavies all dressed up in their fancy harness and then seeing them on the go with their wagons. I bet you have quite a few hitches and hope for some photos to enjoy ths show vicariously!!

    Thanks DDamsel and Anael ... I'll have some more pics of all three when I get some time to sort thru the shots I took this morning. It was dreadfully hot (only 32C, humidex 41 ... I've started to say ONLY to remind myself it could be worse and to try to FEEL that it is cooler than what it is!!! ) .... and by the time I did all the pics, I was drippy, and my arms were sunburned! UGH!

    So much going on. First a meet and greet in the virtual RV with everyone. We did make history yesterday.
    Carrie...the SYE block is stunning. There is a collection at my LQS that I've been drawn to and have some FQs of. Might just use that for my main fabrics and add other accents.
    Anael...you are brave to cycle but I suspect that more people of all ages do it in your country than here in the US.
    Mirabelle...worth staying up with the popcorn to see the win. A rather high score too!
    Jeanie...horray! Contractor on site. I don't really have an opinion on your PC other than to say your blocks look really good together.
    QuiltE....I think you're hooked on FMQ! Good job.
    JanRN...only one more day and then the promised FART. Where are you going this time?
    Dubib...great blocks and good news on the house. Now the packing can start in earnest. I never enjoyed moving but it is a good time to dispose of excess/unwanted stuff. Is it still raining?
    Janie...I would love to go to the stampede. There was always a little rodeo on July 4 when I was a kid and I still enjoy watching cowboys ride! Those big horses at the fair are also a favorite. Seeing them in competition and how their drivers handle them is real artistry.
    QNS...we will all be ready to celebrate with you today when your tables arrive and are in place! Sounds like the timing is good too with the rest if the room sorted and organized. Good job!
    OK....loved your pictures, especially the DGDs hand in hand. And congratulations to Mr&Mrs 4-H! The little and big things you both did over the years when there really wasn't time or energy for it have been noticed and appreciated by many.
    GrannyQ...thinking if you and yours.
    Honchey...welcome home. How nice that QOTS appreciated the courtesy you showed them by asking if we could use SYE as a quilt along.
    i picked blackberries first thing this morning and will freeze them for making jam later. It's just too hot to be cooking today. I'm settled in by the fan for the rest of the day and putter in my sewing room. Maybe the Ocean Waves will make me feel cooler is I don't do too much pressing.

    Love your quilt QuiltE! You did a fabulous job with the FMQ Clover pattern. Did you draw it on first, or just go for it??? I would be chicken to try to do it without it being drawn on. LOL That is why I am taking another FMQ class next month!

    Looks like we were posting at the same time, QuiltE and I missed your pic of your FMQ. Well done. Very clever to think of clover. Isn't it fun when it goes well?

    Gardnergal, come on up for a visit next July and we will get you to the Stampede. I have friends who just love it, but it has no appeal for me. I don't do well in crowds and the Stampede has plenty of crowds.

    In regards to the Percherons, I used to work with special needs kids. One little guy had a terrible time with academics, he was small for his age and found school difficult. He was a whiz with driving the Percherons. He asked me to go watch him compete one time and it made me so proud of him to see him handle those great big animals. I will always think of him when I go to see them.

    Once when I was taking a student to a farm for work experience I got talked into helping the farmer give a needle to a Clydesdale. I was supposed to hold his neck while the farmer stuck the needle in. I am not very big or strong, so it was questionable why he asked me, but any port in a storm. We got it done, but I have a healthy respect for those big guys.

    Today I am going to throw a Toad in the Hole in the oven and then go to the sewing room for the first time in a week. I am going to make a list of projects needing finished, prioritize, then start on the first one. I do have the second PC flimsy up on the wall. Maybe that should be priority number 1!!

    Tomorrow I start the hunt for roller blades!

    Love your quilt, QE. You did a great job with FMQ. I'm asking the same question as Jeanie,did you draw the clovers on first? I have to draw whatever I'm trying to FMQ or all I can do is meander or stipple and even then I end up in a corner.

    Fabulous things happening here while I was gone for the day; great pictures posted, great news from all...OKsewGlad email me the day you will be at the Fair, if its not too hot would love to take your picture there then!

    Not so good news here. Big sewing table ordered is NOT IN. They will ship direct to me, put it together, then charge me one tenth of the price of the table to do so!! If it were a $25 charge that would be OK. So will have to see when the long awaited table is coming in; don't know right now. Office depot is shipping a $60.00 table to me no shipping charges...on a four foot table. Picked up my cutting table at JoAnns for 40% off price...like the ones dh had me take back to JoAnns in Texas when we moved. Maybe the big desk will be in during Fair Time.

    Dh wanted a 5 cup salad made, so I did that first when I got home; also cleaned 2 pounds of strawberries, now need to make the jello salad, strawberries and bananas, and cut up the four fryer chickens that was on sale as soon as I finish the dishes...dh wore himself out and is taking a break watching TV while I work in the kitchen...so sweet of him!!

    GGal ... here's hoping the Ocean Waves and Breeze have helped you stay cool! Yes caught by the FMQ bug first by mmany of the rest of you Lovely Ladies. I obviously missed something about Honchey and a QOTS contact.

    Honchey ... great news ^^^ Hope today's travel day went well. And now you will be home and tired!

    JeanieG, JanieW and JanRN ... OR maybe I should have simplified it with The Three J's Thank you!!! Oh no, I just went for it. I actually find it harder to follow something on the fabric. Awhile back, I printed a picture of one of Anael's quilts with the design, and used it as my guide. I did do some pencil and paper "FMQing" first to get in the routine of when to curve left right or whatever. It was kind of like doing a 3 pointed figure 8 (get the idea?). The 4-Leaf Clovers were when I messed up and had to fill in what didn't look so good! Then graduated to a scrap piece, then to a practice IRL piece that'll become a QAYG project ...... then onwards to the real thing and just went for it. The more I did it, the better I felt with it. Of course, easier to do it on a border, than across a whole quilt though.

    JeanieG ... Are there happy little hammers rattling away there?

    JanieW ... I'm with you on the "I hate crowds"!! I do ... and really do avoid them as much as possible. Great horse memories for you ... guess you had to look "tough" when you were asked to help and had a student with you! Remember, they are called the Gentle Giants for a reason!

    QNSue ... sorry for your disappointments today. That'd be a great thing if you could attend Mr+MrsOKSGlad's "hanging" for us! Is your 5 cup salad ... sour cream, coconut, marshmallows, mandarins, pineapple? Haven't had it for years and oh so delicious! Definitely a nice hot weather treat.

    DublB ... enjoy your stew! I had leftovers ... often cook doubles for the next day/meal. Or multiples for the freezer too. Makes for some great hot weather eating ... and stand bys when quilting is more important than eating!

    QuiltE - Wow, I'm so impressed that you did your clovers without drawing them first! That is awesome!!! The construction crew was here all day today! Yeah! It is ready for the dry waller to start tomorrow.

    QuiltE said: 'Is your 5 cup salad ... sour cream, coconut, marshmallows, mandarins, pineapple?' No mandarins, use red and white seedless grapes split into halves, crushed pineapple. Jello salad was banana, strawberries and nectarines with strawberry-banana jello. Summer food.

    Cut up the four fryers and they are in the deep freeze. Funny how I used to cut up the chickens with DGM and how do them now and split the chicken in halves....then cut up each half to go into freezer bags. or put dark meat separate from white meat. Sprinkle kosker salt over the chicken before freezer adds a better favor when you do cook it.

    Yes it is 3 FWs! & as I look there are 2 other sewin' machines, a steam press, a serger & so much more. It's even just down the street from the house I'm buyin'! (Don't go by the map in the add. It's all messed up!) It works like a garage sale. Ya go & buy what ya can. Fri will be 20% off & Sat will be 50% off. I think if I want a FW I had better not wait though. I think they will be gone.
