    The FWS Pony Club week 18 Flying Clouds & Friendship Star Discussion Page

    Hi Y'all, Sorry to say I haven't been able to get to the sewing machine or cutting mat....I am dealing with a family crisis and I just can't get my mind wrapped around the blocks right now. Hopefully the next couple of weeks will get better...I will be posting the threads every week ...I hope you'll understand that I just can't participate right now other than that. Honchey

    Thank you, Honchey, for posting the PC threads for us. Life does get to each of us at times. I am sure all of us had our share of burdens we carry with us daily. One day at a time. Hope you do have a few minutes to enjoy our banter and 'eye' candy even if you cannot get to your sewing machine right now. Escape to our virtual RV, and rest a bit.

    I am guilty of starting more UFOs...maybe even finish some. Eleanor Burns Stars and Crosses with nine blocks makes a queen/king quilt...each block is about 22 inches square has been calling my name. New ducks, turkeys and some to be some chickens are keeping me busy.

    Honchey I hope you aren't too stressed, remember to take some time for yourself, and pop in for some eye candy.

    So sorry that the sun isn't shining the best for you right now.
    I'll be thinking of you ... and hope you'll drop on by once in awhile to catch up ... and perhaps let some of the group's work brighten your times!!!

    Anne, thanks for taking the time to post the threads. Everyone here is ready and willing to "sit a spell" with you and help you weather this crisis. Take some time for yourself, pop in to look at some eye candy and you'll feel all of us with you.

    I want you to know that I, too, am sending you good vibes and wishes to be back, peacefully, soon. While our quilting is important and has it's place in our lives, it cannot be first......people and "life" at times, takes over......be well, safe and I hope your "crisis" is over soon.....

    Life happens; it can be sickness, accidents, good weather to work outside, family gatherings, extra work loads, whatever. To all who have stumbling blocks right now, "Peace" and enjoy from the sidelines.

    Sorry I didn't see your wave. Wished I had known you were so close. Which highway were you on?

    I was at a threads class yesterday and finally have a better idea how to adjust the tension on my machine. It's always been a mystery. Plus I was able to use every fancy thread imaginable and have signed up for an applique class in July. New horizons to look forward to while I practice FMQ! Some of the ladies are really getting good. My shop has a retreat center so all if you are invited to join me. Here's the link to their website. http://www.threadsoftimefab.com/
