    Wow-week 55. We've been together longer than some Hollywood marriages!! What a fun journey this has been.

    I had some extra blocks and some uglies so I made my dog, Patches, his own little FWS quilt. He helped me so much by laying in the middle of the floor when I was sewing all those blocks. (I consider stepping over the dog as exercise LOL)

    Hi Guys, I Got the okay for the Pony Quilt but being that the start WILL be just after the New Year I cannot start a thread for it yet. A month before will be ok. We can talk about it here a bit but not to the point where it takes over the purpose of this thread about the FWS Quilt-Along. Anne

    aaaaaaaww You're so sweet!

    I'm just disappointed that I missed out on the FWSQ ... and yes, I am going to continue on and make it. I've received so much inspiration as I've watched these threads, so do want to do it and see what I can turn out!! Just won't be the same as doing it with the group, as you ladies did!!

    I have loved seeing all the blocks each week revealed. The similarities in color at times; the urge to "stomp" on the block in fustration and the pride is saying "It is DONE!" Well done ladies, and leader Anne.

    I can never look at these blocks without memories of our journey together. The hope,the inspirations and joys, I gained from the group helped me to finish all the blocks. Too much on my plate to think of a another project right now. Thank you one and all, for the good times of doing this project together.

    Sounds good in regards to the next quilt, although I will want to see the finished quilt to make sure, but if it's similar to our journey on the Farmer's Wife Quilt, it will be a great year! I do think I may do more of a controlled thing this time...we'll see!

    Thanks ladies for an amazing journey thus far! I still need to put my blocks together, but just making them all has been a HUGE accomplishment for me...although technically we're not done til next week's #111?

    :):):)

    Hope that by the time the first of the year rolls around I will have caught up with the last months blocks for Farmers Wife & have at least this top put together. If so, I'm definitely in for going at another one. The journey w/this board this past year has been phenomenal, really fun to be part of, a lifesaver during a really rough patch, & I have just thoroughly enjoyed the whole process w/ all of you along the way. If the teaching is still going full throttle, I will be watching, printing out rotary directions to make another binder, & will catch up during breaks and next summer - tho that won't be nearly as much fun as keeping up w/everyone! :)

    Geesh! In trouble already!!!!! :hunf:
    Just doing a drive by post to at least let you know I am alive and well, though only somewhat well. Work has taken over my life right now and my life isn't really mine for the next three weeks .... and the fall out and spill over will mean pretty much the end of September before regular programming (aka quality time with my sewing machine) can resume.

    In the meantime ... call me tired and pooped ... and will be snagging moments to peek in on you lovelies! :)
