Farming on the Weekend?

Yep, I was farming this weekend.  I was so busy basting that I did not get to farm for Friday.

Now, before I show you my blocks for this week, I will like to tell you about a giveaway!

I have spoken several times how without the classes, tips and techniques from Karen at Laugh yourself into Stitches, I would never have been able to make these blocks.
Karen is having a huge giveaway!

Not, one, or two or even three, but

SIX months of her Farmer's Wife Revival Class!!!

all details can be found

Wow, that is a great giveaway, head on over!

Now for my blocks.

This one,  yucky, not enough contrast, bummer..

#98 Waterwheel

#75 Rosebud

#85 Square Dance

And my favorite for this week....
#64 Peach and Pleny

Happy Sewing!

Nested Churn Dash #3

  EDIT: That's it!  7 comments and only two, two, showed up in my inbox.  
Gmail here I come!!

I finished Nested Churn Dash block number three. 
 I think I like the contrast in this block.

Today, I am going to do some farming. 
Farmer's Wife Farming that is!

Happy Sewing!

Friday Farming with the Magic 8

It has been awhile since I worked on my Farmer's Wife Blocks so I decided to make Friday my Farming Day!

I have skipped the blocks that contain a lot of half square triangles for no other reason than fear!
But it is time take on the challenge!
I have a wonderful helper!

Karen for "Laugh Yourself Into Stitches"  has an amazing tutorial on HST's.
She  calls it the Magic 8.

Her tutorial can be found

Here is a sneak peek from her site. (pictures courtesy of Karen)

Start  here

get these!

She also has a sizing chart for us!

Thanks Karen!

So I met the challenge in only the way I could.
Not perfect, but I like it!
All thanks to the Magic 8.

A few more I finished....

And I do not know why but this is one of my favorites.

I have a total of 37 blocks done!


Have a wonderful weekend. I hope you get to do something you love.

Working with my Favorite Fabrics

I have been doing some handwork. I am making hexies with my favorite fabrics of all time.
Yes, all time!
And I am old!!
Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt
Kerchief Girls by Kei

I am thinking a nice big throw pillow for the bed to match my quilt.

(I just have to keep on showing it, sorry. It is on the bed and being used and loved!)

Happy Sewing!
