    Busy day. We hung some curtains & hung a mirror on the wall. That doesn't sound like a lot but they both took forever! We hit one roadblock after another. It was way past lunch time when we finally finished those. After lunch I acedently set the older of my dogs out. She's is easy to catch most of the time. You just get the truck & drive it to her. By the time DH got down the drive way she was asking to get in the truck. The problem for her is that she has arthritis & just has to have help to get into the truck. I had taken the leash out to her so instead of getting her in the truck I just took her for a walk. That made her so happy. LOL We want her to keep coming back so we try to reward her for coming back. The other dog was heart broken. So next I took her for a walk. Then DH & the dogs took a nap so I got out a bunch of FQ's that I had washed & started pressing & cutting 'em. I had to stop for supper but did a few more after that. Now I am ready for bed. LOL

    Dublb, it must feel good to be one step closer to the end of the move.

    Mother can be made with no Y seams. Really. and even easily than I did, I think. The way I did it was to eliminate four "H" pieces...Name:  1-DSCN0430.JPG

Size:  19.8 KB Looking at the results, I wonder if the strip can be extended and not have a corner insert piece at all. You do still need the four small H pieces to make the 'arrow' straight on the end. Good luck with Mother. Mrs. Anderson is a doll, I could make a whole quilt of her block!

    A Bible theme would be cool. I know there are some old blocks with Bible names to them.

    I have just started getting into Civil War prints, and would love to know the story behind the name "Kansas Troubles". In the birthday swap, someone just sent me an entire set of Kansas Troubles mini charm squares.

    This is the Civil War book I was referring to. Sounds a lot like the FW books, with stories to go with the blocks:

    One good thing about having nasty weather this week-end is that I finished hand sewing the binding on my mini Pineapple wall hanging. Measures about 22 x 22. Name:  Pineapple.jpg

My next & last day for awhile is this Friday..I took apart a pair of camouflage pants for the quilt we're making and I never saw so many pockets and bartacks in pants before..my fingers & hands are sore from all the tugging & pushing to get them all apart..now the other girls can cut the length for borders...

    Jan, we are all so proud of your efforts in this mini... Spectacular!!! Hey OK, what do you think ?

    We are back in Midland. It is rainy today. Just a slow rain but it is enough that we don't want t gather the stuff that is in the store room & get it all moved here.

    I'm so excited! I was going to look for a 1930's book in Paducah next week, but today I saw it at my JoAnn's... and I had a 40% off coupon to use! The blocks are amazing. Can't wait to try some. I guess I will find that new thread and jump right in. What day do you usually post the new thread every week, Honchey? I'll have to get in the habit of looking for it.

    I also saw a book called The Quilt Block Bible by Rosemary Youngs. It looked pretty yummy too! Same size and format as the FW books and same publisher. I would love to do some of those too, but I really wanted the 1930's book first. I have a good sized collection of 30's repros (and some real feedsacks too) and I have never done much with them.

    Happy dancing...

    You may of guessed that I was interrupted on the last entry that I did. The water was spelled as wat...LOL!

    Had a lot in my day, Honchey, I was trying touch base all the way around the hours and minutes.

    I have been shopping on the internet again...received my packages from last week's shopping and was very excited about them... love how easy the Lone Texas Star is to do that special way. And oh, others that was on my bucket list jumped into the basket, too! Found the kit on Jenny Beyer former week list with her sixty degree diamond ruler and wonder if it is still available. Her High Tea pattern will be a challenge for me, so that will made it go down the list. Less than thirty blocks to go on FW 1930...may be time to get serious about how to finish it....I am thinking about putting the squares in order that we made them...maybe because I was a librarian for so long, things are better to me, in A B C order.

    JanRn, you really need to pat yourself on the back on that last quilt. Pineapple pattern is not an easy one for me to do.

    Have a good week, everyone! I am singing Old MacDonald had a farm, and on his farm he had chickens....with a chick here and a chick chick there...15 little Red Rhode Island hens....four months before they are old enough to lay an egg. Cannot land any Giant Pekin Duck Hens until the 20th of June. They have to be four months old before they lay eggs, too.

    Sewbizgirl, well, well! You've got the book! Isn't it charming?
    Jan, wow, a very cute quilt you've made there. Is it hanging on your wall? I like the quilting. I had the same idea for a pattern I have in mind. It's nice to see how it looks 'in person.' Yes, I'll be trying that too one of these days.
    QNS, I'm thinking about a couple of chicks. I've haven't bought pullets much. We like to bring them up, making them friendly pets. Sometimes I think a pullet that's not quite so friendly might be the way to go though. If my door is open too long, my chickens run into the house. :-)

    Nina,
    I was surprised to read that you have 15 RI hens, so they will be laying brown eggs. There is a saying here: Brown eggs are local eggs and local eggs are fresh. I bought 2 dozen today. They are delicious.

    Oh I love Rhode Island Reds and their eggs are wonderful. I would love to have chickens again but we have so many varmints that we would have to build a fortress to keep our chickens safe from them. We always treated our chickens like pets. We raised chickens and meat rabbits for years when our kids were young and I got stay at home and homeschool them. What a great life that was.

    JanRN love your mini pineapple, so many tiny parts on this one.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    We do not have a 'cat' door at our home because there are too many varmints like possum or raccoon that would come in the house. Yes,, chickens are not bad pets, rather have them friendly and not afraid of us than the leghorn type that runs and flys away from a person. Possums and raccoon visit our poultry lot at night. The duck eggs are my dh favorite egg for breakfast and mine when I cook. Therefore, we sell or share the brown eggs from the RIR hens.

    Yes, I have chicken patterns for quilts on my 'bucket' list. I am always looking for fabric to make up the Rooster set. someday, I will. I did make up the nine hens on the nest and named them after my brother's former girl friends...his wife claimed that one. LoL!

    Paper work today; maybe I will make a dent in it at least. Quilt patterns often distract me...therefore, the paper work does not progress too well.

    My DSis has chickens. Most of her's are RIRs! She sells the eggs to pay for the feed. The kids get any $ that is left over. They have about 50 right now. She did however but 40 Cornish Brocks (I think that is what she said) a couple of weeks ago. They are raising those for meat.

    dublb that was interesting about your dogs. I can relate. If one has us do something with or for them, the others want the same.

    You girls all talking about your chickens and eggs. I want some, but don't have a chicken coup. I may have to get up with my son about that and see if he would help me on one. He builds so many things. He has a nice chicken coup, and put little painted shutters on it to match his house. lol... I would just like a simple basic one, but protected from critters at night too. We have them too living in east tn.
