    I love all your blocks.

    Yes I wish there was more people too but it the four of us. It will be awesome but just a smaller quilt.
    Unless you wait for the next swap. Maybe we can have another farm swap without the word funky. I don't know what through people off but it was something. Or maybe certain people do certain swaps and no one else touches them. I've actually seen this happen so maybe just maybe I stepped on toes. Wasn't my intention just wanted to have fun with you all. I've never seen anyone do owls so that will be my next one in Feb. I'm writing up the rules as we speak. It will be fun.

    Power is back on! Sorry for the misspells earlier. I was on my phone and I didnt catch them before posting. Anyway, the wind is still extremely high. It has rained on and off all day. The houses on the street in front of us was hit pretty bad. They are calling for more! I hope I have everything tied down good.

    I hope you have everything taken care of too and stay safe. We are have high winds tonight ourself. The weather has been extremely crazy this week. Last Friday it sleeted rained and the slushy snow into full blown snow. Unfortunately I was in the beginning and the middle of it. There was 15 accident I counted. Three I know rolled and one still on its hood. It was crazy. So I hope you are doing better than here and I am so sorry about the neighbor I hope they are safe too. Stay safe okay blocks aren't as important as your safety.

    Chickens and roosters are fun. I was raised on a chicken farm. Daddy raise Bantam chickens. Loved gathering the eggs. My kitchen is the farm theme but mostly barns and chickens.

    I was raised with chickens, pigs, horses, cows, ducks and turkeys. Also my dad really like guineas . I also collected eggs and loved riding horses. It truly brings back memories. I also loved catching the little pigs. That was so much fun. We even tamed a chicken and her Sally she love to be petted.

    Daddy had pigs for a while, but the market rules were changing and he too the last to market before the deadline. We always wanted horses. The neighbor had them and we got to pet them. He let us ride a few times but not many. My sister and I didn't get around the pigs. The chickens were our thing. Tried to catch them on occasion but never did only when they were hatchlings.

    Yes my dad slowly got rid of the farm animals. It was sad but now days it just cost a lot. My son now as took over this trade. It's really cool to visit him and he has chickens , a goat , I couldn't help myself and got him four baby ducks. Boy do they grow so big fast. Dogs cats and even horses.

    I know I am so excited to. We will have to do another farm swap hopefully in a few months. What do you think? Maybe we can get more people to sign up this time.

    I would be up for doing another Farm Swap. Maybe the reason we had low interest was because it was just after the holiday. I have noticed there aren't many new swaps out there right now.

    Maybe with the next one we'll be a bit more mindful of the due date too... My sincere apologies, Sandra. But if you saw the last block(s) I had made... HORRIBLE quilting faux pas!

    I am still waiting on one more person and then I will get everything swapped out.

    So I will give it to like the end of March and we will start another farm swap. This way we can have all of April to get them done.
