    Hi Everyone...The sun is shining here and I hope all of you are doing ok!!!!

    DD the pups are such cute balls of fur..of course you have to keep one!!! sad about the Gma tho...

    Dublb, I also collect sewing macjhines...Dh has told me no more!!!!

    QuiltE..I really don't want to expand this thread..we're nice and snug here..not ruffling any feathers if you understand what I mean...PM me if you need to..

    QNS, fires??? what a horrible experience !!..

    GGal. No, we don't mail until after the 15th of the month...You are probably biting at the bit to send but not yet..

    And Jan, so glad to see you here ..words cannot say how happy I was when I saw you post...
    remember..all of you.. to PM or email if you need to...

    We put it out to the County Land Preservation that we might consider selling our property and they repied by phone that they are VERY interested and now the ball is in motion...they will be notifying us by mail of their interest...No $$ discussed yet..They know the price has to be right or it's a no go...I have very mixed emotions right now about it...We've been here for 44 years and it's been in the family for about 90 yrs... moving forward..if all goes well we'll be in Delaware as well as North Carolina...BUT, DH says we have to be at least a 1/2 hour away from my sister
    and this time I will make sure the extra room is big enough for all my sewing stuff!!!!

    I'm going out now to get a hair cut...I'll be checking in later...H.

    Anael ... Nothing wrong with bright. In fact, you have really influenced me on wanting to do white work!

    JanRN ... I'm with you on not re-doing a home to sell, despite what realtors say. Hopefully with spring (it IS coming!) there'll be more action. Look forward to that FART trip ... I remember hearing of your adventures last year! Take care!!!!

    DDamsel ... Yea for your BBs. Are you going to use the black? or just for showing them to us. Wiggly (as you said), cuddly, fluffy and oh so adorable are the puppieeeeeeeees! Of course you MUST keep one of the babies, just to keep your numbers the same. And a sweet little DSD.

    Honchey ... oh no, I am not wanting to ruffle feathers! All is good!
    I'm sure it's hard to consider selling your home with all your personal history there, as well as the length of time in the family. As you've already identified, there is a positive, in that you could "choose" the right place and make your personal sewing sanctuary, just as you'd like! Good Luck, as you progress with this change.

    DD - Your BB from me was the only one that I made special. Did ya notice all o' the barbed wire in your TX? LOL I just had ta. Those puppies are soooooo cute! Ya do need ta keep at least 1.
    Jan - There are some people who like the old houses (like me.) Surely there is a group that can help ya market your DM's house.
    Hounchey - DH has threatened ta "cut me off" in regards ta my machines. He did go w/me ta git this one. What he doesn't want is more cabinets. "Where are ya gonn' put it?" is what he always says. LOL I did come home & tell him about it before I bought it. It helped that I just gave my other 401A & it's cabinet ta my apprentice a few weeks ago.

    Aw shucks, Honchey. I'm so ready to see my pineapple and surprise someone else with a block I just LOVE. It hangs on my design wall and gives me warm thoughts of her whenever I see it.

    Yippee for me I found my Mystery block that I misplaced (not lost). But got a call from a local business today. I put their check and our phone bill check in their envelope and sent an empty envelope to the phone company. Thank goodness it wasn't a switch of checks. So Nancy (don't you love a small town) shredded my phone check and I had to take time to contact "big" phone company. I must be losing it!! Note to self--"Don't do bookwork late at night!"

    DD those pups are sooo cute. They aren't going to stay in that pen for long or are they already starting to climb out? Cattle panels don't hold our pups in--they crawl through the openings. Our Border Collies are about the same age--but a little bit smaller! Some one remarked on the our white pups. In the mother's litter, there were white with a little bit of black collies . Must be a strong trait as the pappa dog has a lot of almost all black on his side. Will soon be finding homes for them--one is already spoken for. Hopefully all will be gone by the time spring really arrives. No citing of robins yet--too much snow down south in QNS country.

    Love how this thread has evolved! We just keep the campfire a burning--but away from the chicken coop!

    Honchey--what do you mean by County Land Preservation? In our wide open space in the Midwest we have not dealt with the issue. If all goes through yes changes are coming your way.

    Jan get better. Someone will see the gem your mother's house really is and they will turn it into a beautiful setting. Enjoy the big FART with your friend! Sounds like a fun time.

    Got our health insurance notice yesterday--a $325 a month raise in premium. Getting close to $1200 month just to have health insurance for the two of us. Good thing I have droppped maternity benefits

    Great news, Honchey , on all events...since I need to do my mystery block yet. Missed our hair appointment cause of the storm, so we go tomorrow. Hope you sell your place if you want too...and be closer to your sister.

    Good Luck to JanRn to sell her mother's place. DD you need to keep one more dog for the gk to play with.

    But today was out of chicken feed and cat feed, and had a wellness doctor's app't...he did not like the sound of one lung, but I knew I was recovering from a sinus problem, so no big concern there. His sister who is an RN works with him, offered me 5 chairs, "not the right color" for their clinic, so we loaded them up too; then gave 3 away to gentleman who runs the feed store in Queen City...his wife might take them to their home; their choice. Eggs all delivered, came back to Queen City gas station, and meet our plumber there that has his PhD in Sh@! or so his wife says, filling up at the station, who had found an extra bale of straw, and he gave that to us. So it was quite a day. Neighbor got her car stuck in her drive, but says her brother will get it out this evening, not to worry. She might take the other two chairs. Cannot move anymore into our house unless something goes out the door.

    Now to fix a meal for grumpy dh...wellness check meant we skipped breakfast; had a quick meal at deli, but he wants more, now.@@!! not later. LOL!!

    Here's what I did today after school with the kids...a new purse for me. It is made from 3 FQs plus the lining fabric. Pictures are Front (pocket under flap), Back (pocket), and Inside (2 more pockets). I put 4 pockets because I don't like everything all together in the middle. I decided I will add a magnetic closure to keep the flap closed.

    Jan--hope your weekend is better than your past couple weeks!

    DD--those puppies sure are cute.

    QNS--sounds like you got lots of things done while in town today. Did you get DH fed and happy again?

    OK--At least you didn't send your mystery block in place of a bill, then they really would have been wondering about you!

    QE--you asked about State archery...it is on this Saturday. The my oldest DD shoots at 2pm and the other 2 kids shoot at 4pm. Next weekend is my March retreat...will be getting ready for that next week so won't be getting much sewing in until I get set up there on Thursday afternoon.

    Very cute, Carrie; love that purse. Got a couple of patterns to try,and my own ideas too. AIL wants one to fasten to her walker or wheelchair...have the fabric and lining fabrics. Yes, I have feed him (dh) his favorite, Kraft Marconi and Cheese.

    Snow is collecting on our roof and sliding downward, more snow is coming down every once in awhile...officially 11 inches here but again its where you measure it that counts. Two different TV stations reported 9 1/2 inches of snow for Des Monies and the other station said 11 inches. Had to go out and take a picture of horizontal icicles...probably will be gone in the morning. Its holding the front door closed so the picture is looking out the storm door.

    I know, OksewGlad, your little puppies are valuable ones; and they are all so adorable. DD, I think your puppies sell pretty good too, and much in demand also. If either of you have one left over, we may need to PM on that subject.

    Oh, the joys of finally getting a hair cut tomorrow!! I am about ready to 'hack' it off!! Or pull it out!! It will feel so much better then...if it is cut properly. Every one take care....a wear a smile on your face!

    QNS, I am with you on getting your hair cut! My lady, I've used for 25 years, has had to retire because of shoulder and hand problems. I am trying to be brave and find someone else, but after 25 years with one person, it is hard to find another that you can just go, sit in a chair, not say a word about hair, and have her cut it to perfection!!!! My neighbor across the street gave me the name of her gal, just have to get up the nerve and try her. I guess that is as good as going to a shop and getting whoever!

    So sorry for everyone who lives in the midwest. We are having glorious 78* weather here. Right now it has dropped to 69*, but really nice weather. My apricot trees are starting to blossom. Hope the fruit holds!

    All this puppy talk has brought smiles galore to my face. Such cute puppies! Our best dog of them all was an Australian Shepherd. Oh gosh was she smart! I see those cute photos and it brings back so many memories.

    We have not heard anything about our SewGrands today. Hope Anael comes in soon, so we can get our "fix"!

    I am working on my Mystery Block. I really like it ..... too bad I have to give it away! LOL I'm going to make a 6" block that matches.

    Carrie - love your new bag. I have a Mini Bow-Tucks that I made over a year ago, I'm thinking about making another in spring colors. They sure wash well in the machine. I just hang it up to dry and I'm off again!

    Glad that Jan surfaced! Hope we hear more from you soon. That FART sounds like so much fun. Hope your mom's house sells soon.

    OKsewglad, Here in NJ it's technically called "Green Acres"....We've had in influx of New Yorkers & North Jersey & Staten Islanders move into our area (Central New Jersey)..we're known as the garden state and our farms were disappearing and becoming housing developments..our schools and infrastructure suffered so the people of NJ voted to preserve as much Green Acres as they could by voting for money to keep the land as it is and no more housing developments...because our home is an older one it will probably br razed... so there won't be any fixing up of anything until we hear that that the price is right!!!

    Honchey--Wow!! You've been busy! Very pretty blocks!!

    Jeanie--your 60s and 70s sound nice. We've gotten snow the last several days. I am thankful that at least it's been in the 30s so not too cold compared to a couple weeks ago when we were under 10!

    I call it mindless sewing and I was very happy doing it!!!! it's the start of a quilt called film at 5?? I didn't need the pattern...it's pretty easy to follow from a photo...the light colored blocks are going to be one big enormous block...maybe it will grow up to be a quilt some day the squares are all from the swap I participated in here on the board...

    Carrie, I love your finished PC quilt. I really like the layout you chose. I may try something similar, but smaller, with BB blocks. Your setting triangle color makes all the blocks stand out. Great job!

    Oh man. I can't keep with you guys. So many great pictures of puppies and purses and quilts. What a diverse bunch we are.

    DD so so sorry to hear about your dog. I am a huge dog lover and always feel sad when I hear that someone loses their pet. Those puppies are so adorable and so lucky to have your family . I have a question about your preference for your mystery block. The link to bumblebeans says "page does not exist" so I am not sure what you want us to make for you.

    Gardnergal which type of muslin? bleached or unbleached?

    JanRN glad you are feeling better. Hope all is good with you now.

    Honchey I love all that "mindless sewing" you have been doing. Sometimes that the best as we get lots done without taxing the brain. Your blocks are super colourful.

    Carriem I love your purses. I am too chicken to make a purse, but always like to see what other adventurous people can create. Nice colours.

    QNS I always love reading about your adventures. Your days are always busy.

    DublB Another machine! Wow. I just sold a treadle that I was "encouraged" to buy a few years ago. I didn't really want it, but a bachelor friend of ours wanted me to have it as it was his mother's. He wanted it to go to a home where it would be appreciated and he knew my love of sewing. He wasn't giving it away so I kind of felt obligated to buy it. I really had no room for it and it didn't interest me to use so I finally was able to sell it. I lost on the deal, but oh well. I hope you get yours unstuck soon.

    JeanieG I am envious of your temperatures. I was all excited that March came in like a lamb. It was 0 Centigrade at 8 this morning so that is pretty mild for up here. We are getting a Chinook and it will be + 7 for the weekend so we will watch the snow melt. My poor daffodil have been trying to poke through since early February and that is just weird.

    Since I got home from the last round of grandkid minding I have been trying to get back to my running. I am up to 5k 4 times a week now so almost back to where I was when I went down to the kids'.

    My littlest grandson turns 1 today. He was born last year on Feb 29 so this year he has to have his bday on March 1. I'm off to the sewing room to get the finishing touches on my mystery block. I am getting impatient for the news on who I send to next. This is great fun!


    Just to add to the diversity of this thread, here's a pic of me on a camel named Oscar in Cairo taken last Nov. We went to Egypt for our 40th anniversary.

    Janie, you have just topped our list on this site on what we have done!! Riding a camel is not an everyday picture that we see, and you both are smiling on your 40th Anniversary!! You all are still on your honeymoon!! Congrats to both of you. Thanks for sharing the picture!

    Yes, Honchey, I love your blocks you are doing, not exactly mindless 'cause those corners all meet together very well and look very attractive in colors.

    You'all have a great day and great weekend! Anael, we need an update on the twins. Mirabelle, glad you enjoyed your two day visit with dd...and I am sure you have pictures to share of quilts you finished together??! DD I missed that bumble? block you were wanting in your mystery block???

    PC News!! ... I now crossed the line of enough blocks for my PC! Now to do a few extras to have for swapping in/out when I do the placements. Stay tuned ... photo ops this weekend!

    GGal ... for my future reference when you are my Mystery designate ... do you have a specific pineapple pattern we are to use? or just any pineapple we choose? Please and Thanks! Did you do a block for yourself to match your giveaway?

    Puppies ............ DDamsel and OKSGlad should swap puppies!! and get some new blood into their stock! And I see a puppy/stash swap coming for QNSue! No doubt she wants one of each!!

    OKSGlad ... Like CarrieM, I noted that you were careful enough not to sent them the Mystery Block! Ouch! on the health insurance.

    CarrieM ... GMTA re OKSGlad's outbound mail!!! Great looking purse. Is this a shop pattern? or a free one, online?

    QNSue ... good like with your new do today!!

    JeanieG ... I can feel the warmth!!

    Honchey ... OMG ... they'd be oh so fiddly indeed, though the fruits of your labours are well worth it. The film blocks are really neat. The pastels with white so peaceful and will make for a lovely quilt, as you join them up.

    JanieW ... Great diversity pic! What a trip that must have been!! Congratulations on your running ... chasing the grands kept you in good condition!! Are you training for a longer distance goal? Don't dear a purse ... I did, then realized it was not so bad, once I did it! Back to the Grands for The Brier? Watch for our Ontario team!!! Thanks for asking the Mystery questions. I know I have a few, but need to get my list out as I forget who and what I need to ask/clarifiy!

    DDamsel ... looks like you are giving us all the leaway you ever could. You may live to regret it!

    MiraB ... wondering what you two got up to this time! I think it's so grand that the two of you make the point of sewing together so often!

    Isa has been transferred to Unit 2, meaning she needs a little less care now! So that's a big achievement. She was a bit restless last night with a few downs but is doing great. She's breathing on her own for 7 days now!
    Bram had a restless night also. He has an infection in one of his arms (one of the lines pooked through his vein), it's looking nasty and the neonatologist told my DS and DDIL he will have a scar for sure. She also told he might need plastic surgery He's still in Unit 1, still on the ventilator and still retaining fluid. Good news: no fungus infection anymore! So that's great!

    Janie, lovely picture!

    I still didn't finish my Sylvia! Did some cleaning today, made a few twin blocks and sorted out stuff upstairs. So I hope Sylvia will be finished tomorrow It looks like I'm afraid to finish her LOL

    Janie and Quilte...I would prefer unbleached muslin but if the person making this months has already started with bleached, don't start over. I found a tut for the one I'm thinking of. I'll try to attach the link. http://www.instructables.com/id/Pine...tern/?ALLSTEPS. The muslin would be in place of the black. I start with a 2 1/2 square in the middle and use 1 1/4 inch strips. Mix the colors up as much as you like. This block is so adaptable.
    Quilte...Yes I did a small block to match the one I'm waiting to send. I worked on another one and found that not all blocks adapt to 6 inches but I'll make one with the same fabric that is somewhat similar. Congratulations on finishing then PC. Looking forward to the pictures.
    Anael...great news from the SewGrands! No let up on prayers though.
    Honchey..I've been doing those kind of blocks using strips and then cutting them to size. I think you get a much better mix doing it your way. I'll have to try it. Hope you get the price you want for your home.
    Carrie...love your purse.
    Janie...did you get saddle sores? Looks like quite an adventure.
    Me...today I'm actually finishing UFO's. Will try to post picture next week.

    Good afternoon from Iowa. Been "playing" farmer for the past couple of days. DH has put his back out and relief milker has been called upon. I'm getting too old for this. It takes 3 hours to milk the cows and that's twice a day. Now have 2 little ones as Mom is helping with outside chores. 4 yo is sleeping; 2 1/2 yo is running wild!
    SewGrands still need our prayers, but such a good sigh when we hear they are progressing.
    Our mystery blocks are going to SewGreat. I'm looking forward to the change up in colors and styles. It will help all of us get out of our sewing tunnel vision. Thanks for the links.
    QE--wonderful accomplishment for you. I'm envious!
    Did anyone notice the quilt like looking saddle blanket on Janie's trusty steed? Those darn quilters they can spot a quilt design anywhere! Can you tell us more Janie?
    Gotta dash--must go to town one way and then backtrack and take the Long way home.
