Sewing, Sewing, and more Sewing

I have been really busy at the sewing machine working on the Farmers Wife Quilt.  These blocks finish to 6 inches and they are addictive – I can’t stop making them.  I need 128 of them and I have almost 50 done.

I also have these three Civil War Blocks on my design wall the bottom one is a mistake that turned into a great substitute.

I have  been on a book buying spree.  Sometimes I just can’t resist and these are all great books with a lot of great projects.

I am a person that can’t stand it if I don’t have something to do with my hands.  So when I am not sewing I do cross stitch.  The little girl in the  sampler that I showed you in my January 9 post now has a head.  I hope to get it completed real soon.

Until next time.
