Quilt With Us

DH and I went fencing this morning. This involved me digging through the winter caps & mittens cupboard for my leather work gloves and lots of walking on my part. He'd already strung the electric fence wire yesterday and just needed me to walk alongside the pickup where the steel posts were, step off the paces between posts, string the wire through the plastic insulators and push the posts (steel rods) into the ground. We haven't had a hard freeze, so the ground is still fairly soft and it isn't hard to do. We were fencing winter feed ground.

After we finished this morning, DH said, "One down, six more to go." Hopefully not all in one day. Actually, I'm not sure how much exercise it really is, because even though I was walking, I don't think I worked up a sweat. BUT anything beyond sitting down is still classified as exercise...right?

I cut up my daughter's high school t-shirts yesterday, so that quilt project is underway. I didn't have as many for her as I thought I'd have. It may call for some creativity (gasp!) in planning the quilt top. Have a great day, everyone!

Lots and lots of exercise!! You have tons of creativity--the t-shirt shortage will be countered with some great bright piecing/sashing--or something else totally wonderful!! Congratulations on one down and one to go!!--we're rooting for you!!

When I was growing up at my grandparents farm, my cousins and I were in charge of keeping the animals within the perimeter of the farm. We didn't have any fences among the neighbors, so when we let out 30 chickens in the yard, there better be 30 chickens coming back. One less chicken meant our neighbor was having it for his dinner.

When I was a little kid, my dad used to tell me to touch the wire to see if it was working. Like a dummy I did until I smartened up.

I thought swords too! Guess I'm not a country girl. But the image was interesting.

PQ, I guess this comes from being born and raised in the country. I never even had a thought of swords and duals when you said fincing. The only thing to go thru my pea brain was "keeping the cows in:.

Even though fencing with 'foils' first came to mind, I knew it had to be out in the pasture type of fencing from you. LOL Sounds like exercise to me! You go girl!

Just for the record...any movement (brushing teeth,hair,flossing) goes down as 200 calories burned. I also used in son's sport quilt ...any baseball cap logo, I appliqued onto fabric, their jerseys, ribbons, favorite clothing,etc.

Too funny! I never think of THAT kind of "fencing". Too far removed from knights and culture, I guess. :0)

Another idea for the t shirt shortage... can you get ahold of someone at her school to see if 'extras' or 'unclaimed' ones are available? they won't have her number/name on them, I'm sure, but maybe the school name or mascot would work.

Hi, have to say, it almost sounds like fun to an old lady that doesn't get out much. Of course I mean the fencing. I was wondering if you are short of t shirts, could you maybe take a blank shirt and put family
pictures on it. Just a thought. I am sure you have your own ideas, but it was just a thought.
