Finally, I can keep my promise to show you my Farmer's Wife sampler. I took this photo to share some time ago and since they have been working on the hand quilting. When it is not too hot, I am trying to quilt a block a day.
I am thrilled with the old fashioned look of this sampler. I think I have been under the influence of wanting to start rereading the Little House on the Prairie series along with watching the movie Sarah Plain and Tall again too. Oh....how I *love* that film! And to me this quilt looks like a prairie garden at the end of the summer. That is going to be reflected in the quilt's name which I will share only once I have finished the quilting. If the summer is not too hot then that should not be allllllll too long. *grins*
We have had three extremely hot days and when I was originally trying to post this blog entry I could do little more than sit at the laptop and drink one of these.....an iced coffee. I am also busy getting ready for next week. It is our annual 'Christmas in July' quilt evening. So many secret projects that I can only share with you after Wednesday evening. So back to work for Miss Pickles the Elf (that's me)! *wink*
