    I'm ready for tomorrow's new 30's thread. While I was in Paducah I was able to buy a couple of bags of real vintage fabric scraps, so I've been playing with those in my blocks! It's so cool to have the old patterns and also the old fabrics! I am up to date on the blocks so I started with the front of the book now to catch up on the blocks I want to make.

    Here is block #3 from the book, Alice. The print in it is a very old lawn fabric.

    All of you sweet girls sure do make it hard to leave here. I have reconsidered, and I will come here, and Nina Sue you are right about having a little corner to go too. I will still have to sew when I can, but will be here to chat with you all. I don't need anything, but the friendship all of you have already been to me here.

    Hopefully, I won't have to have my internet shut down, but if I did when by a library I would check in. Our internet is really our only luxury. When I had to retire teaching early we got rid of any credit cards etc.

    To read what others of you have been through brings tears to me. Yes, life is our special rose, but still has those pesky thorns.

    Each day is surely a gift. Because I don't get out much at this time, except where I have to or where I am needed I don't have many friends close by so you girls here are the closest friends even though I haven't been here long.

    Reading all the very meaningful thoughts from each of you brings something to my mind I heard a minister say not too long ago. He said that whatever or whoever passes this way today will not pass this way again. Basically even the precious thoughts from each of you were here for me at this moment today. Each day we have with family and friends, and all that was said or happened, when that day ends will not pass by us again.

    I will be posting my two current, yes, I said current blocks later today. lol... From then on it will be probably one here and there, but I will be here with all of you to see how your day is going. Thank you!! You are all a blessing.

    Susan, I'm glad you decided to stay part of this group. You need to stay connected to some supportive friends, especially when life gets tough.

    Waiting for our new 30's thread to be posted, or have I just missed it?

    Dublb, sounds like you are getting closer to have moved most of your household to Brady.

    I threaded up the 550 Bernina, changed the tread to light beige, changed to foot to the quilter foot number 37. Got smart and used by seam ripper magnifier lens to thread the needle, worked so well that way. It has better light to see by, so no big hurry to fix the older machine right now; I can still move onward on the projects. Bucket list keeps growing faster than I can sew... Nice to stay home and work in the quilt room! Nice to have s spare sewing machine...onward on that bucket list.

    Just thought I would say "hi" quick...life hasn't changed too much...still just as busy as ever....sewing mostly just on the weekends. One of our dogs was diagnosed with cancer about a month and a 1/2 ago. The vet made it sound like she would go quickly, but she is still hanging on...may live up 6-9 months. She's taking 3 different pain pills 2-3 times a day so I am thinking it will be less than the 6 months. Last week we got a new puppy...we didn't want our other dog to be lonely when Ginger dies.

    I have one of the arrow quilts I am making sandwiched and ready to quilt this weekend. The top for the other one is done and ready to be sandwiched. My goal is to have both finished by the end of May before outdoor archery tournaments begin. I also have a binding to put on a quilt for a friend. I haven't decided for sure what I will work on next...if I want to work on something started or start something new...I have plenty to choose from in both categories.

    dublb - It sounds like you almost completely moved into the Brady house! Is your other home sold, or just on the market?

    I would someday like to work on a civil war quilt. I love the look of them. So many pretty quilts to be made. I am still working to finish a baby quilt for my nurse at the clinic. It's thicker with the batting I used which is more puffy, but she said that was perfect, because she wants to use it for her babies turning over exercises. I made some of the blocks white with hand embroidery, and alternating with pink little kitty print. I am hand quilting it. I didn't have a big hand type hoop for much of it, but now I have a couple of moms. I don't know if they will help me now or not, but I may use one. When I get it finished I will show you girls a picture. First baby quilt I ever made.

    carriem, In her old age, my husband's little dog has become nearly blind and can't hear well. She only sleeps all day. He took a new puppy... But the old dog still is here, and now we have three, because I have my dog too. Two dogs is enough for me. I don't know why we have three...

    I very much enjoy the patterns of the fabric that is Civil War reproductions. Getting some someday is on my to-do list. What!!?? Your first baby quilt!!

    Yes, it will be my first baby quilt. I don't know if my son and daughter in law will ever have any children. My son is 43. They spoke before of adoption, but I think they worry about the economy. When I was little people just had their families, and they made it somehow. I had just the right fabric for this baby quilt, and I love to hand embroider. I had a lot of embroidery thread that was mom's. This nurse we have known for a long time, and she is young so when I heard she was going to have another one I waited to see what she was going to have. So it's for a little girl. The little girl is here.

    I think too I will later keep my eyes open for civil war fabrics to collect a piece here and there, and later make one.

    I have been through that too with dogs. We had one dog for about 10 years our little Buddy. I am surprised he lived that long, because about 5 years ago he wondered off the wrong way, and was shot by someone. We didn't see him for 2 weeks, and I thought we would never see him again. It was right before one Christmas. We both prayed to see him again, but my husband really prayed. One night I hears something and went out on the front porch and seen him struggling walking against the front of the house. My husband picked him up, and took him to the vet. The vet said he didn't know how he was alive, because after an x-ray it showed all this buck shot or whatever you call it in his head. It left him blind, and the vet gave us meds for his pain, and inflammation, with special salve to rub in his eyes. Later he learned his way around everything and went on for more years until this past year, and became suddenly so sick, and he died in my arms. The vet said it had to be God why he was still here. back then.

    Oh what a sad story about your little Buddy, Susan. People are so cruel. It breaks my heart. He was lucky to have you and your husband to come home to.

    We lost a beloved dog in a similar way. Our Sophie... a pointer. Someone got mad at my husband so they picked her up while she was out on a bathroom run and "relocated" her several miles away. During the time period when we were searching for her, the people where she was hanging around got tired of her and shot her! They have no idea what a treasure she was to us. I lost part of my heart that day. I still cry thinking about her.

    JuneBilly I am so looking forward to seeing your baby quilt. I make quilts for the babies that they can drag around for years.
    Carrie we are having to treat our oldest dog for arthritis. It was keeping her fomr the things she loved but w/this RX she is doing so much better. We didn't take her to Brady the last trip nor this one. These trips sre so short & the pain she would have gone through would have been cruel. She is so much better so we will bring the dogs again soon. When she goes the younger dog is just gonna go into mourning. We will have to get another dog much sooner than we will want to as she will need the company.

    My goodness, you both have quite some stories about your dogs! When I lived in the country we had a cat that was very loving. One day he turned up missing and we thought maybe he had been run over on the road (55 MPH), or something like that. We just couldn't find him. Then about a year later he reappeared. He was drooling, so I took him to the vet. After his examination, the vet said what caused it was a hole that went clear through his tongue, in the top and out the bottom of it. We could only wonder how it had happened to him. He escaped something, and he loved us enough to get back home.

    That's wonderful that he finally found his way back home. The hole in his tongue sounds as tho it may have come from an animal bite.

    We get so attached to our dear pets, don't we?

    Isn't it amazing how our beloved pets will do their best to make their way home to us if they can.

    Sewbizgirl that is terrible about your precious dog. Some people have so little respect for these precious babies. They are family to all of us.

    I watch these tv shows where they show how many of them have risk their own lives to save those they love.
    Oh and that movie 'Hachi.' I guess that's how you spell it, but the first time I watched that show I cried and cried. It was based on a true story. If you haven't seen this movie, and have Kleenex on hand, this dog story you might want to find and watch it.

    I Have a question girls. To subscribe to all the posts on these FWS threads do we subscribe to each weeks blocks or just the FWS 30's in general? I want it where I will get the updates to any of the weeks blocks.

    As far as I know, you have to subscribe to each thread individually. If you find a way to subscribe to all, let us know! It would be so much simpler.

    I think when you comment or subscribe on a thread it will show up in a daily email sent to you from the "Board" it comes as a "notification", then you would click on it and it will bring up the thread so you can see what's "going on" in that thread... I keep the current thread on my favorites toolbar so I can go back to it whenever I choose to..
