    Does this mean we have been out of control. I am fine with whatever is decided.

    Carriem I am going on retreat with DD again, we have been planning what to take and how much we are going to get accomplished for some time now. Starting to get excited about it.

    Anael Bram is perfect and yes he is one tough little boy, and gorgeous to boot just want to hug him..

    QuiltE you will be missed so pop in regularly to let us know how you are doing..

    Now to head over to QOTS and download the new patterns.
    Have a great day everyone

    ..........I am thinking we will still come back to this thread to "visit"...share pictures of kids, GKs, gardens, recipes, etc, etc...that way the SYE thread stays mostly pictures and comments about the blocks.
    OH OH ... I've been labelled!
    Come on you Cowgirls .... I'm NOT the only one who makes a bit of noise around here!

    (though when Honchey tossed that lasso around my neck today .... i sure did screech!)


    And yes, by golly ... sure do hope we keep hanging out here for all our chatty diversions!!!

    Honchey et al ... absolutely! we have to keep this going til all the PC quilts are done and finished! Looks like you have a "plan" to work at work, tomorrow. Get a good sleep and be ready for the next few days!

    DDamsel ... how about eating them? That'd be my favourite use for them! Or there's plum muffins? coffee cake?
    Oh yes ... evil you are!! LOVE IT!!

    MiraB ... I'll pop in when I can ... just don't want anyone to "expect" any regularity. Heck I don't even know what my schedule will be!!! I remember the beautiful pictures of your drive to the retreat last year. Totally exotic!


    And now ... everyone sing ......... ♪♫♫♪ Good Night Ladies!!! ♪♫♫♪
    and of course, that means Good Afternoon, MiraB ... and Good Morning Anael!

    Honchey might trade the lasso in on a whip to keep you going, better watch out

    Off to work up another 12 dozen ears of corn like last Thursday...hope it goes as quickly and nicely as last week. Love my sweet corn from Iowa. Bf picked up her 25 dozen more yesterday like she did last Wednesday...and talked to her two dd and they will get some of that corn as well. She is also helping the DM dd with school supplies for the three adopted boys, plus her dgd in her sophomore year.

    Hope everything went well with OKsewGlad last night in her teaching of judging to the four H group..may they do well at State.

    Yes, Anael, love those pictures of the SEW GRANDs; before you know it, they will be celebrating their first birthdays. Time passes on soooo quickly...

    Celebrate the day, ladies, it will be gone after midnight!!!

    Just flipped the calendar to August! Hard to believe this year is slipping by so fast. I took out my Jamestown quilt and working on joining the rows yesterday. I had been pretty satisfied with the points, etc but this A4A class has really raised my awareness as well as my ability to get them all better. This quilting craft has so much to teach me!!!....and I love it. I haven't decided on my colors for the SYE yet. I still have half of my PC blocks and the bonus blocks to do too. They just haven't grabbed my attention since I got the first one done.
    QuiltE...I'm glad that Honchey has lassoed you in. It gets pretty quiet around here when you're gone but I'm certain that you enjoy what you do in the fall and give it your all.
    Honchey...I echo Jan. Thanks for all that you do to keep us together. This is such a fun group!
    DD...has your sister gotten married yet?
    QNS....you are like the energizer bunny....you just keep going, and going, and going! Rest is good you know and you need to find the switch ocassionally.
    Dubib...you must be buried in boxes or getting the old house ready to sell. Thinking of you.
    Jeanie...painting today? Only 7 more days until you have cabinets!
    Mirabelle....so you have plans for your retreat coming together? It's so nice that your DD is also a quilter. I'm looking forward to meeting her.
    Anael....are you joining us for SYE? I don't remember you saying.
    Today a hair cut and afternoon visit with a friend so not much sewing if any.

    Cannot picture Honchey with a whip; or a rolling pin. Or a lasso. She has raised her family and babysitting grand kids, so she probably has some firm rules but with us she does not have to worry...we have all raised our own families as well. Or the just the dh and their can be the biggest kid of all...

    Then there are some that exceed themselves, like OKsewGlad couple, that helps out others to learn farming ways. If you want to thank who taught you to read, thank a teacher and your parents. But if you want to thank those who grow your dairy, grains and meats, thank a farmer.

    I don't know how long we will see a sight like this, 1/3 of the cattle is kept inside and that will be more in future.

    There is only so much land; and it will get higher and higher as it sells. So few will be able to 'graze' their livestock in pastures because of the value of the land. Supply and demand; the heart of any economy.

    If the American could unite and avoid all gas stations just one day, gas would decrease in price. Not to the seventeen and twenty-five cents like when I started to work, but well under the two dollar mark.

    As big farming companies buy up the land and gain control, prices will raise higher. Average young farmer-to-be has to have help from parents who farm...and in the know on who has the $$$$$$$$$$$$$. One young man, graduating from Ag college, put himself in debt for six hundred thousand dollars to start a hog confinement business. Wonder how long it will take to clear his debt... wonder if his grandchildren will be able to pay it off.

    According to what I read on the internet the costs to keep the farm operating are higher than the price of milk. As a result of that the farmers expand the farm, intensify production and keep the cows inside. This doesn't work but they still do it. This is going on in the North-Western part of Europe.
    When I was young lots of young farmers went abroad (Canada, Australia) to start a farm there. Most of them didn't come back.

    Anael, I'm working on those same blocks. They look so complicated but have been going together easily (at least so far). I have 8 done. Will have to try to get a pic this week-end. I love the dark blue star fabric--great block.

    Carrie, I'll accept your challenge to finish my Batik Rosie this month. OMG now that I typed that I'm committed!! Keep pushing me please!

    Anael ... *sigh* Bonus with both B_+Ws and Reds! Ditto re few cows outside now. Your photo could just as easily be taken here. Reminds me so much of my old farm with the shade trees on the field's edge. Ditto, as for cows in barns now. More and more here too, and I bet it's well above 1/2. Very often better care can be given the cattle and more consistency year round, being that ours need the barn for the winter weather. Yes, we have many Dutch farmers who have settled here in Canada, dairy and many other farm types and have done quite well with their farm operations. And many came as you got older too! Beautiful Star Block!

    You bet ... many don't know where their milk "really" comes from!!! .... and thus, think of me for the next month, helping to educate the consumer about just that! We will have 13 cows milking in two demos a day (1/2 each time) along with young stock to help them see how "big" a calf is at birth, and then the growth for the first year. Lots of other displays with that. The most important part is the ability for them to ask questions, directly to producers (or has-beens, like me!)

    JanRN and CarrieM ... yeaaaaaaaaa Two Rosies coming up! The Challenge is on!!

    JanRN and Anael ... perhaps another challenge? Look forward to seeing your blocks, JanRN!

    Sleep well, Anael .. and beat that headache

    Anael--that is a pretty block and nice cow pictures. I saw some cows out to pasture today on my way home and thought of you riding and taking pictures.

    Jan--I will get my blocks out tonight and decide how I want to put them together.

    QE--Jan is finishing Rosie (my Rosie was finished in February); my goal is to finish my 2nd PC quilt this month. I just figured like Jan if we said we would do it, then it is more likely to be done!

    Quiet evening...surprised I was the last one to post...and here I am again.

    I brought in my PC blocks tonight and have a layout figured out (didn't want just straight rows/sashing). Tomorrow I will get them on my design wall to decide what blocks will go where. I have a headache today too (Anael are you sharing?) I didn't do sewing this afternoon, but I'll be home all day tomorrow so will for sure have time in the clubhouse. #1 PC layout, #2 quilt baby quilt, and #3 sew next step of flying geese for MIL quilt. I want to be able to stare at the PC layout through out the day to see if I need to move blocks around. The baby quilt shouldn't take long and if I get the next step on MIL's quilt done, then I can bring in pieces for pressing and trimming in the evening. It could potentially be a very productive day.
