    Oh, it is so nice to be on this trail with the younger set!! Happy Anniversary to Mirabell with 34 years and dublb with 29 years. This March marks 46 years for dh and me; four more years to our 50th. And the talk of the town when we got married was it would never last. We had to get married; no, we did not. We could not have children; we waited for three years for our first one, just to have some time together first before a family came along. I married beneath me; 'cause some persons did not like his grandfather in my hometown. I married a farm boy because I loved the country and he was going to college to better himself. His own Mother appeared on our doorstep to tell me how he would never earn a living for a girl whom he married. According to her, he was "too" lazy to work. He worked 16-20 hour day for his parents, 7 days a week, without pay, on the farm. How wrong can well-meaning people be on what they "think"!!

    I like the saying: Yesterday is history; tomorrow is the future; and today is a gift to enjoy...that is why it is called "the present". Look for sunshine and happiness and welcome it when it knocks on your door. Seize the moment. Treasure it. Thats why I like QB; everyone looks for the best in others and their work.

    I am excited to say it will be 15 yrs for me this May...can't wait til it is 50!! I too had the nay-sayers and those who thought I *had to* get married (it was 2 weeks after I turned 18). Nope! Just young and ready to be married!! So happy I didn't wait.

    Bright Hopes and Bird's Eye View

    Howdy All, my DH and I have been married 36 years. We were very young, only 20 and 21. Can't believe we made it this far! Anyway, I must comment on all your beautiful blocks:

    Honchey, I love that "don't fence me in". That's kind of my motto. Great horse fabric and black birds!!

    JanieW, Love the blue and yellow and the happy boy in bright hopes. He looks like he just lasso'd something.

    QuiltE, Love your cows and very pretty birds. The blocks go nicely together!!

    dublb, very lovely shades of blue in your bright hopes!!

    anael, your blocks look great!! so pretty and cute and go well together!

    JanRN, those totems are magnificent!! Very nice colors in both blocks!!

    Gardnergal970, great job on both blocks!!! I love the blanket stitch, it's one of my favorites to hand stitch, it looks great!!!

    Wendiq, I absolutely love your blocks!!! Great idea to put the rick rack around the circle, very creative! Your bright hopes is very cute, nice choice of fabrics and colors!!

    CookieLM, I just love your turquoise!! Very pretty blocks and go well together!

    QuiltingNinaSue, what great fabrics in your blocks. The horse fabric is beautiful in both blocks. Wonderful colors and prints!!!!!

    Mirabell, very beautiful fabrics, great job!!

    I'll get mine on soon, haven't had a chance to post them.

    OK, I know I'm getting a little too far ahead but have any of you checked out clover blossom?? Would some of you
    experienced paper piecers take a look at it when you get a chance. I don't know if it's me or the pattern. In the "A" section I think the lines in the half sq. triangles are going the wrong way. Also, it looks to me like the other sections, except for the stem, have to be pieced on the right side of the paper instead of the wrong side for it to come out right. Hope I've explained this right. Also hope the problem isn't me or I'll have to make an appointment for a lobotomy.

    Thank you!

    Oh Termi ... those are darling! Such cute little birdies fluttering and hopping around there. Very old fashioned looking for the Bird's Eye View and all looks perfectly smooth and round and fully aligned. Oh what fun with the Tiny Tossed Clothes and what a cutie that L'il Cow Girl is.

    Oh, Jeanie those are so perfect! Those horses look so free. Are those the horseshoes you painted? I like 'em so much. Such cute chickens in the grass.

    No, I bought the fabric that way! I don't have the patience to paint on fabric.

    JeanieG ... the subtleness and softness of the horses are a perfect blend with the life shown with the chickens. Nice touch with that gingham mixed in. Perfect mixture, all round!

    Thank you QuiltE! I thought the gingham gave it a "country" feel too.

    You bet ... and ginghams seem to be so hard to find these days. Mix in a bit of it here and there. It gives that country feel ... and some lightness. And bonus, your gingham isn't all that big! NICE!!

    What beautiful blocks everyone, and thank you for your kind words. QuiltingNinaSue, we had friends who openly took bets at our wedding that we would not last 6 months, and yes there was a lot of speculation as to the haste of our wedding. We met, 3 months later he proposed and 3 months later we were married, then we waited 3 1/2 years for our DS to arrive. We have our "rules".... never go to bed angry, never raise your voice at each other and talk to each other, no secrets in this house

    Sounds like great rules to abide by and made your marriage successful. Congratulations. DH said we were out to beat the odds; 40 years later still married.
