    Last day of May...where does the time go so fast?

    I have put the names of all FW 1930 on each block in permanent ink along with their respective number; I will not remember the name of each block if I don't, so I have with all the Farmer's Wife quilts. Thinking about setting them together.... just thinking.

    Have a great day! Celebrate.

    Good morning! I made two blocks last night... Fanny, and Old Maid for this week's showing. I need to do my Nellie block and I'll be ready to post on time later today when Honchey starts the thread. Hope everyone's having a good day.

    Why oh why do I have to pack so much clothes for the "what if's" and why oh why do I never wear them ??? I wish I could just have stuff for up here and stuff for down there

    Today is the last day of golf for DH and then I can start packing the trunk for our trip...DH has a procedure on Thursday and when we leave all hinges on the results...
    I have to go make some Jello now..Maybe I'll start a 30"s block..I think I may have Nellie in pieces somewhere..I'm not very organized with this journey.. I've had to reprint the blocks as I go 'cause I still can't find the big ziplock with all of the blocks printed out.. Oh well, Later guys..

    Crazy busy trip & I am ready for some quiet time. Sigh, I guess it isn't gonna happen. It looks like there is gonna be at least 2 more trips to Ft Worth.

    Glad your time in Ft. Worth wasn't all stress, Bev. Glad you had a nice time with your cousin and the hubs hit it off well.

    Anne, I find whenever I try to pack sparingly I am always missing something. So if I have the room I take it all!

    So... 'procedure' and 'making jello'... I know what that means! Just been there! Hope all turns out well for your hubby.

    Went to the annual Quilt in a Day lecture by Pat Knoechel (Eleanor Burns' sister) yesterday with my quilty friends. Had lots of fun, saw her newly released patterns. It's really just a 2 hour sales pitch with demonstrations of her techniques but it's always fun. And they feed us. Rode in a car with a lady and her 95 year old mom. The mom still quilts and is as sharp as a tack. She bought a bunch of patterns and a book; her daughter said "mom, you're 95 do you think you'll make all those patterns?" Mom said "I plan to and I'll buy more because the day I run out of patterns is the day I'll die". So ladies, don't feel guilty buying what you want because that's our incentive to live longer LOL.

    Ha ha... I love the 95yo lady's attitude! She's going out quilting. The lady who heads up our charity quilting group is like that too. She's at least 90, sharp as a tack, and bossy as a little general. She was a pastor's wife (now a widow) so she knows how to ride herd over a bunch of women! And she's the one who comes up with all the fun ideas for the group-- road trips, challenges, quiltathon days at her house-- you name it. And she always wants to be where the quilting action is. We love her.

    We had a big storm last night. The lights were flickering and the rain was SO LOUD. Dog spent another night trembling in fear due to the thunder and noisy rain. But this morning the sun is shining and all looks beautiful again.

    JanRN i was in seven quilt shops in Iowa today and one book store; came out with a sack full at everyone of them 'cause God showed me what to buy and what not to boy. Will catalog them into my collection tomorrow while dh is gone with his brother to their Mothers grave site in Winterset Iowa... an all day trip going and coming...so I will cook my lobster and play all day in my Quilt Room, singing to myself in happiness. More fun than I expected, more shops than I expected and more good company with Quilter 65 driving who remembers the roads better than I do...

    It will take three weeks to fix my old machine. Good thing I did not get a new one with the outlay of cash today... I celecbrated the day in a big way...way.... way. Bucket list just grew faster than flowers/weeds grow in the garden. OL!

    I love that you had such a fun day, QNS. Please do show us your shopping loot when you get around to it. I would just LOVE to go on a shop hop trip!

    SBG, Yeah, that's where I used the flannel board too. I taught the 4 & 5-year-olds Sunday School class at church for 10 years. There's nothing like the little ones that still have their baby teeth. :-) The kids are different when the big teeth come...

    Fun chat to hear regarding the older women and their energy! QNS with her bucket list will never be alone in that respect. My list is surprisingly long too. Lots of us move slower when we are older, but the creative dreams seem to just continue to move along at the younger pace. :-)

    Good saying, QNS!

    I agree about the bucket lists... I have so many ideas, I feel like I will never catch up to them all. Accomplish a few, and you think of at least as many more to tack onto the bucket list. But it keeps us motivated and moving!

    Givio, I taught 3rd grade Sunday School for a number of years. The kids were still sweet and respectful of authority. I think 3rd grade is where I draw the line, though!

    Glad all went well for the hubby, Anne, and that your trip can happen as planned.

    QNS, thanks so much for sharing your shopping treasures with us. What FUN that must have been. I'm still unpacking the goodies I bought in Paducah!

    Oh, that was fun to read and look at! Thanks QNS for sharing! I never went on a 'shop hop' but it sounds like it would so enjoyable. I think I'd be so tired at the end.

    I like that saying qns. You girls have all been busy buying, making, etc. I love hearing what all you have been up to. I had a wonderful mom son evening on memorial day. His wife spent time with her parents while we were off.

    Thanks everyone for your kind words on my postings. Yes, I was so tired I went to bed before the chickens last night! I did resist a lot of 'stuff' during the shop hop, so there's more I would love to purchase but that bucket list is getting quite long, so need to finish some projects first. And there is a chance I might get to go 'west' of where I live in three weeks after the Row by Row starts up....that is an eight shop day if I do... eight different rows make a quilt. My Bernina 1530 should be fixed then and ready to pick up. I will take pictures of 'Willow' 's throw and quilt when we finish that before the 11th of the month. Love sewing and thinking of little girl babies...

    Plus the fun of longtime friend that will be here helping to make it for her new grand baby girl.

    I did pick up the slashing and corner block fabric for the FW 1930 which I hope will be a finished top by September, ready for the LA and a couple to take for the lessons on the long arm lessons in DM. Meanwhile, I need to get to Cantril, Ia., and deliver two quilts there to be hand quilted....been trying to get over there for a couple of months.

    Thanks, Ok, for the heads up on the Kirksville Quilt Show. They are a great group and make beautiful quilts.

    Celebrate this day, it will not come again in our lifetime.

    You are going to be busy, NinaSue.

    Last night I embroidered my second block for the embroidered quilt I am doing. The blocks are to be a diamond in a square, and the square is 4 corners of different 30's print fabrics. I thought I had a lot of 30's prints but I don't have 4 of each color. Looks like some SHOPPING will be necessary. Hope I can find some fat quarters.
