FARM GIRL UPDATE
--here are my two latest 6.5" blocks
The Milk Can is on the right
(getting out milk to leave for Santa on Christmas Eve;)
Pumpkin is on the left
(for the piece of pie we left for him..ho ho ho!).
The Pumpkin is all pieced-up as this was the last pumpkin
from our patch ;))) LOL
I used some small, older, pre-sewn, leftover pieces to make these and used up
(unfortunately) the rest of that snow-ey background...I will have to dive
into my blue leftovers to see what other sky prints I have...
All these blocks will eventually be embroidered and possible beaded...
I can't wait for that part...;))))
small piecing like this is hard for me with my
arthritic hands....at least I can SEE now
(altho' I can also see all the mistakes--- aaargh!!)
Next in line is the Strawberry block--the 2nd one for February..
I have all its pieces cut out...I couldn't find any older pre-pieced ones
this time, though. :000 maybe I will have to sew some "made fabric"
but i have a month to do it in...I like the pieced look in those blocks.
On the Home front:
My daughter is driving down here to have dinner with us this evening
and see her Dad after his operation...
we haven't seen her in a long while, so this is a treat.
I have made a big crockpot full of beef stew and am
serving snowflake rolls to go with;
along with strawberries and ice cream for dessert...
