Once Upon A Story Row Along… Day 09

Once Upon A Story Row Along

WoW, just two more days and we’ll be done. It just goes by so quickly and where did 2019 go btw… I can’t believe we are in October already. It’s like it was January 1st yesterday and the 9 months of the year flew by in just 24 hours.

My hubby is away this week on a business trip and you’d think I’d be thrilled to have the time to myself. Once upon a time, that would have been the case. I am amazed at how I’ve grown over the years to value my time with him more and more. Just this past August we celebrated 35 years of marriage and I wonder where did all that time go to and yet I can remember each year with all the memories that come flooding in my brain at times. I was just reminding Frank this morning of a story I was thinking about when our niece was visiting us in  Italy. We were right in the middle of moving to the base from a city 40 miles from the base and a cow appeared in our back yard. Somehow the front gate of our house had opened and the cow managed to come thru the gate, walk down the very long drive way, and ended up in a back yard that was literally a hill. We normally took stairs to go into the back yard, but there was a hill also and we figure the cow must have walked down the hill. It took quite some coaxing to get that cow out of the backyard, but it finally happened. Either or, that’s not what your really here for…

  1. I have enjoyed all the blocks for this RAL. I cant wait to get started making a quilt with these designs.

  2. I couldn’t find the comment form at Mountain Meadow Designs but I sent a message. I like the filler blocks and the idea of embroidering the words on some of the blocks.

  3. Wow, 225 people received prizes over the last 5 years already! That is awesome, Marian. Thank you for organizing the RAL every year. I so enjoy it and appreciate all your hard work for running it.

  4. I’ve really enjoyed this row along. Thanks so much to you for doing this and all of you designers for your wonderful designs.

  5. I hope you will be able to get around to your post for today.. I am interested in machine embroidery (not to mention your give-away) and I look forward to what you have to say.

  6. Rapunzel Let Down Your Hair, yet another great block! Thanks for all your organizing/work of this project.

  7. Rapunzel Let Down Your Hair, another great block! Thanks for all you do in organizing & fixing things for us.

  8. Rapunzel is adorable and since I have two granddaughters with golden hair, I think I need to make this for them!!!

  9. I want to say thanks for Duck Creek Mountain’s Jack Be Nimble. There was no comment section on the site and I have only a Firefox browser.

  10. Your block theme is the Nutcracker (which I love cos collect nutcrackers); Carol’s nursery theme was Rapunzel; Carol Swift’s theme is Hickory, Dickory, Dock; Duck Creek Mountain Quiltings theme is Humpty Dumpty.

    Thanks for all that you do Marian!!

  11. Jack be nimble is a wonderful block. Really liked here other renditions as well. Will they be available at some point?

  12. I am doing the row along. the pattern from Carol Schmidt does not download it is for the Rapunzel block

    1. If you use google drive, you can send the doc file to your google drive, then go to your drive folder, right-click and choose download. It will download the file to where you want to save it. I’m trying to get her to fix it, but in the meantime, that is a workaround.

  13. I can’t for the life of me find the place to leave a comment on
    Duck Creek Mountain Quiltings post, but I love seeing how her mind works. The humpty dumpty with a mustache just cracks me up and Jack be Nimble is too cute!

    1. yep, I had that issue to Joan, I changed browsers and was able to comment. Thanks for letting me know, I did make a note of it on the top of this post also. 🙂
