    Also, when you click on "settings", it will show all of your subscribed threads that have new posts. I always go to settings first when I come to the board.

    I don't subscribe to anything, I didn't know you could until I read here that you girls get email updates. I just login to the Board, from the Forum open the 'Blocks of the Month and Week' topic, and the most recently active threads will be at the top of the list (under any 'sticky' threads that say at the top automatically). The threads that I have never read will be turquoise. The threads I've read will be purple. The purple threads I've read where there is a post that I haven't read yet will still be purple, but the font will be a darker boldface purple.

    Very true, Givio, and that is what I do too. Or you can subscribe to the 'thread' you wish to follow and the email will come to notify you of new postings. I found that I logged on very often, catching the 'new' thread before I got the email.... the email notification quit coming and I did not subscribe again.

    Having problems with Bid Defenders, an advertiser on QB. I paid to renew on April 25th and still do not have it installed on my computer because: I could not remember the password....they were quick to reply password reset has been sent to you....then the program would not load because a bit had to be turned off, and now they are questioning the email I got from them showing that I paid for the program that came from them. I am sure that our children that are techs could have solved things in one day. So I am unhappy with them....again this year. And they do give any credit back for the non use after payment...so I am stuck wilthout much hope. Wonder how they got their high rating... just wondering.

    I am trying to figure out how to speed up my sewing to complete items on my quilt to do bucket list. It would help IF I really got into the quilt room and worked all day without dh interruptions of seeing this or that or helping him a minute (always takes longer than a minute). Guess that is just life. What will be, will be. And that bucket list keeps growing...when a 'friend' takes me to Quilt Stores and teaches those wonderful classes at a local Quilt Shop. It is always so much fun, I cannot resist doing it. JanRKN mentioned there was 29 blocks left in FW 1930, so maybe that will give me more time there.

    I went shopping for a few groceries on Wednesday and dh did not feel good, a touch of stomach flu going away that day. Got up Thursday and caught him opening up the cans I had left on the counter to put away later, and he was throwing them away in the chicken feed bucket... and ask him WHAT was he doing. Oh, he replied, they were in the 'area that means 'chicken feed' and it was my fault for not having put them up. Sigh. He did not ask, he did not check the 'dates' on the cans....just took it on himself to teach me a lesson. Since I had bought those cans for him, guess its his loss. I am not replacing them very soon at all. I was so tired when we got home, I had followed his example of doing nothing beyond refrigeration of food that needed it. One of those moments, when I have to think, and I have lived, married to this guy for 50 years??? Yep, my fault.

    Oh, sorry NinaSue! Husband trouble. The way they think just blows your mind. Yeah, I'd not replace those cans either. He probably knows where the grocery store is if he gets hungry... Those lucky chickens!

    I won't even get started on the many ways my husband exasperates me. One thing I know for sure tho... if anything happens to him I will never get married again. They are all exasperating.

    Agreed. Sewbizgirl. Agreed. And Amen. May I live longer than him, just to spend up the $$$; may just be two cents! HA If he says he wants to take it with him, I 'll write the check to him and put ilt in his coffin.

    lololol Who pays attention to the expiration dates! Do people really do that? :-) I have to find my reading glasses for them.

    My 'husband story' this week is that we have a problem in our sewer pipe and I suggested we hire a professional to solve the problem. He said, "Why hire someone when you've got me?" So, we bought some kind of drain-septic-tank product from the grocery store that didn't work. Then he used a long wire, which didn't work. Then we rented a Roto Router. The head was too small, or the cable was too short, or, anyway, it didn't work. Went to rent another longer one, which broke in the pipe, and then the guy didn't want to rent us any more machinery. So, then we bought a strong acid chemical from the hardware store. Waiting through the night tonight to see if the drain is cleared tomorrow. To be continued... I wish I could have paid a professional and been done with the problem on Monday.

    PS. I told him not to plant the willow tree there. Everyone says willow tree roots make a mess in sewer pipes...

    Sounds like you need the Roto Rooter man!

    Why is it that husbands get more ridiculous with age, and so much more difficult to live with?

    Laughing at the husband stories. MrJan is a perfectionist; if we hire someone to do something, he's right there telling them how to do it or redoes it after they finish. We had great contractors do our bathroom last summer and we've hired the same guys to do the wood floors. When the contractor came with the specs & contract he had it written in that he would remove the squeaks in the floor (our request, old house) to the "expectations of normal customer requirements". In other words: MrJan, we'll do the best we can but it won't be perfect LOL. At least he agreed to come back and work with us; we've had other contractors that will not work with my husband. I've learned after all these years to just roll my eyes and keep doing what I'm doing--my way.

    Jan, when we had our floors redone we were told to sprinkle talcum powder in the areas that squeak..don't notice the squeeks anymore..Just the grunts of me walking ..

    I'm enjoying these pages with all the stories.. I've been sorting thru the piles of scrap fabric for pieces smaller than 1/8 yard..and ...wrapping yardage so I can see what I have..(have too much ). little by little I'm getting some organizing done...

    Anyone see the Gypsy's Wife quilt...I am so intrigued by it..I do have some of the Gardenvale fabric but not enough. have to put that away for some day..

    Dublb, hope all that rain doesn't affect you..The devastation of this last round of rain is horrible..Poor people suffering so.breaks my heart....

    Good to hear from everyone!! H.

    Wow, those are some great numbers!! Good on you, OK!

    I'm still mad at Nina Sue's husband from her story... how much easier just to open the cabinet and put the cans in it than to open every can and dump out the contents? Some men would rather cut off their nose to spite their face! When my husband is mad at me he won't eat anything I cook or prepare for him. Like that's gonna hurt me-- LOL!

    The first 40 years of our marriage MrHonchey was very quiet, we did argue, I walked away and would go for a ride, sometimes for several days to Dsis... When I returned I wouldn't cook until he apologized.. He was always wrong ..He would ask" What did I do now?" Now he won't shut up..He's always talking to the TV!

    I am loving all the stories too!

    My first husband was an alcoholic, and I put up with a lot for 17 years! When I remarried, I now do not put up with anything! Poor Joe! But we have survived raising 6 kids (ages 9 to 14 when we got married) and have been married for 34 years. I had two and he had four kids. His first wife passed away from a melanoma that went undetected until it was too late (in the middle of her back).

    I was checking out my favorite designer, Florine Johnson Designs of her roosters... I have Ralph, Rascal, Rob Roy, Rock, Rowdy, and Rupert. And she has done several since then. Quilt bug carries her designs and I will order the updates next week....that bucket list is growing again. They will go with the two sets of printed roosters yardage I got from the Windmill Quilt store in Pella....make a great quilt in a hurry. Also ordered the small mini triangle iron from Equilter's to do the small area of the Lone Star..Sew many projects....sew willing to stay home and sew.

    We got our hair cut yesterday; not a hair on my head that would measure three inches! Cool hair due. Thinned out it gives me a cool head....Only if it grew seed so others could have more nair.

    I have been reading all the stories girls. I might as well jump in and hang on. Lol..
    I was married to my first husband 27 years. Decided I wanted to know some happiness while still here. I am now married to a man who is so protective of me, and we have been married 17 years. The only thing he is younger than me. He is close to 50, and I am 62. We aren't perfect either, but we respect each other. We help each other as we are both disabled. I have one special son from my first marriage. We are very close. I have a very special daughter in law.

    We are having lots of rain today. I have lettuce growing in a container on my front porch that gets plenty of sun. Been working some on my quilt block.

    Have a good day girls. 🌻

    Oh, but it is, Honchey. My sinus act up in rainy weather, giving me a bad head ache. Arthritis in my hands hurt at night and ache in the daytime. I get frustrated when I cannot see as good as I used too. But I carry on the best that I can.... often its past ten or eleven when i get into the QB room, and dh has to come in and tell me his troubles, aches and pains of the day, then go out and turn on the noise for his entertainment! Earphones run down, starts to hurt him and he takes them off, and I retreat to my room. I just don't liketo complain, and try to always look for the silver lining in the cloud: I nkow where he is and what he is doing. So it could be worse.

    Congrats to Carrie on her anniversary. Good for Susan who found her happiness the second time around. DD, the oldest one, had a abuser husband for nine years before she got away from him and is scared of all men now. I pray that she might find happiness someday. I do miss getting to see them more often and getting to talk to them, but they are following their own footprints in their lives; that thought eases the heart pain a bit. Does not cure it. So I try to kekep dh happy, and keep busy. Idle hands can be the Devil's tool for trouble.

    I cut out templates from the seventies to the ninty nine in FW 1930 this morning. And discovered its past noon, so will go fix a bit to eat. Its raining here, it helps the farmers who have their crops in, abut I am ready the sun to shine.

    Congratulations on your Anniversary Carrie! "and many more"!!!

    It looks like all of are doing fairly well - no major problems right now. That is good!

    I'm fighting my high blood pressure, have been having problems with it for several months. It seems you go along with it well under control for years, then wham - it goes all out of whack. I see my GP next week, so will see what she suggests.

    Sew much to do....I fear my FW blocks will be late. Please note, Honchey: I will not bug you about posting tomorrow, my blocks have not made a start for this week. I am looking at how many quilt tops I can finish and get oft to th LA or hand quilters this week.... perfect timing on the first of May to get some finished! Many more are taking their place in line to do from my bucket list.Onward into the day and the week.

    Would love to see some of your tops as you finish them QNS....

    I haven't started on this week's blocks either. I did a bunch of the old ones last week (and posted in their proper threads) but have had to switch my sewing attention and time to getting three donation quilts quilted and bound and ready to go out the door. My charity group meets this Tuesday night and I need to take them then. I have two finished and only one left to do... today, hopefully. Then I can get to this weeks FW blocks.

    Hope this is the start of a good week for everybody! Looks like more rain is coming, here....

    I'm late on my blocks for the last weeks. Got stuck at 'Mother' and turned to a couple of other tops instead. I did so much sewing on them that I've only the border to sew on them now. I'd be glad for the extra week, if you want to post the next thread after Mother's Day.
