Farmers and Farmer's Wives
So, I jumped on the bandwagon a week or so ago and bought the book and started the Farmer's Wife Quilt! I am a member of both the Flickr group and the Yahoo group. The blocks are addicting when you start out. I was making 2 a night but recently I slowed down. I'm using my collection of Urban Chiks Swell and Sweet fabrics along with some Tanya Whelan florals and Lecien Flower Sugar. I can't wait to see more blocks together.
AND speaking of Farmer's....
A few weeks ago we had a terrible hailstorm that ruined my vegetable and battered the pond lilies.
The biggest fatality was the cucumber patch. This picture almost makes me cry. I had to pull out all the plants and throw out the half-grown cucumbers.
