    Just thought I would check in and say "hi"...I had a nice email update typed up and then lost it. Basically life is busy and not any sewing getting done. I might be able to get some time in a couple afternoons a week starting next week. I will be finishing my nephew's quilt first and then be working on cutting fabric for star blocks for my retreat in October. I was going to start a new quilt at the retreat, but decided it would be better to finish the "50-Star" blocks (I am only making 36-40 for two large lap quilts) and get those quilts finished first.

    School, work, household stuff...plus working at MIL's house getting it ready for her return (she's been at SIL's since the storm damage in July).

    Oh my QNS--you've made my back ache worse today just looking at all you have accomplished. Great pics, too. Thanks for update on Janie.
    Carrie some days our "fun" is pushed aside for the real life out there! Sure your MIL appreciates all that's been done for her, too.
    I'm trying to work on old projects and not start new ones....hard to do as there are so many quilts, so little time. Where have we seen that phrase before?
    Just got a call from my sis in PA. They are leaving for Iowa tomorrow and will be stopping on their return trip early next week. I've got to clean now--guess it's as good an excuse as any. Planned to pick apples today, but after running errands all morning, my back wasn't up to it. Hope tomorrow will be better. Going to QB's tomorrow to try Disappearing Pinwheel block.

    QNS, I see that the storage area isn't insulated. won't the canned items freeze...Oh Boy, the apple tree and Tomatos look soooo good..I wish I had an apple tree!

    Carriem,Wow, Do you ever have a busy life!!

    JanieW, I hope you have a wonderful time on your Journey of a lifetime!

    Jan, I love sleeping in..I think that's when I get the best sleep.

    Dublb, I can't imagine walking at that early hour in the a.m. Any distance walking for me is done on a treadmill!!!
    Although, I must say than when I'm working going to the john is now twice the distance from before the renovations at the store!!! We cleaned out the store room and moved around 40 pieces of equipment...The day flew by...another day of work tomorrow then I can rest then sew for a bit...I hope...Goodnite all...H.

    I just looked...20 more to get to 10,000!!!!!!!!

    Honchey, the garage where the fruit pantry is, is heated by gas heater on West Wall and the two deep freezers in the fruit room also creates heat. Not as warm as the house....about forty five to sixty degrees. The main garage also is a heated room for the cats to sleep and eat....therefore, we created the pantry to lock the cats out of the canned food; they seemed to think it was a climbing challenge and the jars belonged on the floor.

    Ok, we picked about two and half bushels. Worked hard all morning and napped all afternoon. Fried chicken, gravy, baked potato, and fresh sliced tomatoes for lunch. Bacon and tomato sandwich for supper.

    Dublb, I would never be able to walk one block. Great that you can, its very healthy.

    Carrie, treasure those busy family times. Good to have you stop by here and give us an update on your life.

    It's good ta know about where JanieW is. I sure have missed her.
    Wow QNS your harvest is wonderful! Nice full larder! I just love BLT's. Yummy!


    I have decided that I've gotta start wakin' up earlier. This stayin' up all night & sleepin' till noon is for the birds. I'll think I can go ta bed & then discover that I'm wide awake. DH & I have decided that we have gotta walk & git in shape. It was my idea but he has ta wake me up 'cause I can't wake that early. He's usually at work by 6 or 6:30 every mornin' so it's gotta be that early. It's also way too hot ta walk later in the day.

    It's good ta see everybody here.

    Love the scraps, Honchey, especially the red piece. What a nice place to 'play' when you are working! Complete with a fan. Wow.

    JeanieG, I hope you are on high ground in AZ visiting your son. Hurricane brought in a lot of water to AZ.

    Watch out, D_D, rain is coming your way. Dh told me the bears are coming down from high elevation for food getting into people's homes out there...so beware of the bears! 93 have been relocated and two shot. One woman who was feeding the bears, was fined a really big fine. When they say "Don't feed the bears!" they meant it.

    Shhhh.....dh went to town this morning for an appointment at the Chiropractic clinic and I went in the QR and worked for an hour!! A whole hour! Pressed rows one and two that I had sewn together, finished and pressed row 3, and working on row four, inserting five new Thomas blocks, and pressing the old blocks so I can sew them together. Almost caught back up to where I was on the I SPY quilt...I wanna get it out of my way so I can work on other dozen projects...progress is good!

    Anne, I certainly don't call that working LOL!!!!! I like the set-up;the Viking center at our Joanne's is very crowded with very little room to try out machines. Trade me jobs--please!! I'd never retire.

    I'm having trouble posting and getting notices from here. I've seen other posters complaining about the same things so I guess it's a problem Mods are aware of. If I've missed responding to any PMs, I'm sorry--never got a notice about them.

    QNS sounds like a very productive trip to the chiropractor for DH and for you. Glad eye spy is getting caught up.

    Beautiful fall weather here (not like other parts of the country). 40* overnight with lots of sun and temps of 60* during the day. I could live like this all year round.

    Yeah, I certainly can't call it work either..I generally have a lot of fun too...Only when the boss gives me a list..like straighten out the drawers, make sure each machine has all the parts in the drawers..fill bobbins for the embroidery machines, etc..Work ??? . The whole store was renovated and our area is BRAND NEW!!! Tables, carpeting, the wall displays..we only kept the old wooden chairs..The new ones glide too quickly and can tip over too easy...

    The last several days I've been getting duplicate emails from QB..I think the internet problems might have something to do with the solar flares and the satellites ...I'm going to be cutting 2" squares for my swap tonite...I have lots of new scraps ...

    That is great QNS! Someone has a great imagination!

    We have been in Phoenix a week tomorrow. The rain from the last Hurricane was minimal. We got about 1/2 hour of hard rain, then it left and we have not had any more. The storm bypassed Phoenix, and then East through Texas and New Mexico. The first Hurricane that went through (before we got here) was bad, a lot of houses and streets got flooded. There was some standing water at my son's house when we got here, but nothing more.

    I went to a quilt store here where all the fabric are $6.95 a yard. They also have a huge double rack of fabric for $3.95 a yard. I got 3 fabrics off the sale rack, and bought 2 more fabrics to go with them from the regular racks. Wish we had a quilt shop like it at home. I love to come here and shop at this store. I bought them to work on the 7th Train Ride Mystery quilt here on the Board. I have done several of her Mystery Quilts on the Board and they turned out great. I think I am addicted to Mystery Quilts! Here is a photo of the fabrics I purchaed!

    I am happy for you, Dublb, that the Hurricane gave you rain. And JeanieG, I am glad you are fine and your son's house is fine in AZ. What beautiful fabric you found, JeanieG, for your project with the current Mystery folks.

    I worked in the kitchen all day and I am soooo tired tonight. Morning is soon enough to process the jars awaitin' for me. Fixed extra lunch for a couple who are young and go all the time and let her pick it up as a carry-out...just what I served up to Mr. QNS....oven baked BBQ ribs with baked beans and corn on the cob. Plus they got 2 slicing tomatoes, half of the brownie pan of brownies, an apple pie. He gave it high ratings.

    Tomorrow is another day, enjoy.

    Just checking in. Do you realize this is Page 1000? And just 6 more posts til we hit 10,000! We are a chatty group altho a few have been missing and greatly missed.

    Worked today; yes, Anne, work, not playing with fabric like some people we know. (You know I'm kidding!) Just 12 more work days for me til The End!!! (But who's counting LOL). There are some patients that I'll miss seeing and others I'm happy to never see again.

    QNS, love the sayings you've posted. It certainly is Autumn here today--high was only 55*.

    Hi Guys, I've been reminding everyone that we're close to 10,000 posts...What an accomplishment!!! I just hope that everyone that reads these posts will join us in celebrating...I've been on this trek since since I posted the info with the first Farmer's Wife Saga as of August 2010? It's a little over 4 yrs....Although we ventured into a few other trail rides most of us have stuck together...I'm a little disappointed that some have left the trail but that's to be expected...We all need a break every once in awhile... it seems like we're struggling to keep it together...Any suggestions on a new venture??? How about a round robin quilt top and when the last person add s the last row. we can have a drawing as to wins it???..The most it would cost is a priority envelope to send to the next in line besides the $$$/stash for fabric to add to your turn in the round robin...We could limit the # of persons to participate to the # of rounds?...Can you understand what I mean...I think I just thought of our next "Trail Ride" We will have to think of a theme or type of top to make.. Anyone want to come along???

    Honchey--I might be interested in this. It would get us through til the next Farmers Wife book comes out (May 2015 I think). Of course I would have to find time to sew...but I might be able to make that happen.

    Sounds interesting, Anne. I've never done anything like this so it could be lots of fun. Just read "predictions" from the Farmers Almanac that this is going to be an even worse winter than last year so a fun project would help get us through.

    Suggestion: develop our own centers with favorite colors, and send it on in a round 'robin' to go all around and back again to its owner. Each could mail you or the 'judge' a picture before sending it on to the next until completed and sent back to original owner for the reveal. That might last until the next Hird book release.
