    Hi! I think the photo page for this week has been bumped off or I just can't find it.

    I'm currently in North Carolina and the wireless signal is not that great at times...apparently last night was one of those times...the signal wouldn't carry any photos for some reason. Here's a photo of my new retirement home...We aren't here full time yet. Anne

    What a neat-o house! We really like North Carolina and have talked about moving there ... near-ish to Asheville; however, for a number of reasons, we would have to win BIG in the lottery for it to be feasible.

    We're also thinking of the Ashville area (my mom will be 90 this year so we can't move from this area yet). I love your house; also, we want one-level living. OMG I'm so old!!

    Block 90!!! What a nice round number and what an accomplishment for all of us!! Lots of new posts of people just starting this project. I hope they have as much fun and learn as much as I did--you guys were like my private tutors and cheerleaders. Thank you!!! 90--WOW!!

    What a pretty house Anne!

    GrannyQ, you are so far along! I started working way ahead, but it's caught up with me and life is getting in the way...but I'm done with 89 of the 111 blocks! It will be great to see your finished quilt!

    It's SOOOOOOO HOT!!!! And SO much traffic. We are very lucky to live in the "country" vs. "city" and still be just a few minutes' drive from a big mall, a large selection of grocery stores, Joann's, and just about anything we might need. However, to avoid sitting & driving in heavy traffic, we have to shoot for early morning for appointments and shopping trips.

    Yep, I did early morning weeding in the garden; harvested few things to take care on inside because it has been hot and dry.

    Love your new home, Anne; beautiful lawn and house.

    Maybe we can post our blocks in the morning? Yes, I have all 111 plus done and trying to get the rows sewed together. They are laid out on my visual board, trying to get all the squares in the right position. Goofed up several I am ripping out and sitting them the right way. It's a twist and shout time. lol!!

    Love Georgia. Was where we used to go when I flew over from the Uk most times. Savannah though. We even got married there, lol. But yeah. NC is nice too.

    oooohhh!!! we lived in Bham Al for 10 yrs, so Atl was COOL in comparison :lol: :lol: :lol:
    I hear you on the traffic tho, especially south Atl, what a nightmare!!! we were looking in the Soda Springs area, very RURAL, not much shopping, all Mom and Pop. but MUCH better commute :mrgreen:

    Good to know I'm in good company. Hopefully, with working less during the summer I can get more blocks done. Just love doing them.

    Hi, All of you newbies that have blocks stashed somewhere.. hidden...Post them. We love to see them. It gives inspiration to others that may want to start but are leery of trying to do this quilt-along. We love eye candy!! Anne

    Thanks Honchey ... I keep planning to do so ... need to make the time and do some pics. I had hoped to keep up with the current blocks posted. That worked for the first couple weeks, then spring sprung and yardwork called ... then of course that nasty four letter word WORK (the paying stuff!) is always in the way. I've been having withdrawal symptoms as I have not sewn for a week now!! So as I cleared the deck and this afternoon, some quality time with my sewing machine ... and hopefully finish quilting a Stained Glass runner. Soon more FWS time! :)

    Well we just got home from our month long trip. Gotta get caught up now.

    Can't believe we are really at #90 already! Gosh we have had such a great time doing these blocks.

    I'm looking forward to the new Pony Quilt. Hope a lot of you guys will continue onto that one when we are done!

    Hi, I think i read somewhere or even on the book cover that everything is included in the book...rotary cutting, pping, templates. I hope so!! I completed 5 blocks in the last 2 days. 2 of them are catch up blocks. I want to make sure that by the end of this journey that I'm all caught up. Anne

    The new book is called The Farmer's Wife Pony Club Sampler Quilt. She has started a new Yahoo group called "The Farmer's Wife Pony Club Quilt". They already have 98 members signed up and the book is not available yet. Should be fun!

    Hi Jeanie, I signed up awhile ago and couldn't find my name in the members list. :roll: :roll: Lo and behold!! I am # 1 so far. I didn't realize that it is listed alphabetically.
